Well, to paraphrase Prince, you don't have to be rich, you don't have to be cool, I just want your extra time and your.... very clever algorithm for "Content Aware Image Resizing".
Shai Avidan is the guy behind the program, well, he's half of it, together with Ariel Shamir, and he's just been hired by Adobe. I read his CV here, and found out that although he's been working in the U.S. for a while now, the dude is Israeli and even graduated from the Hebrew University. Kinda cool, innit? Now we just have to wait for Photoshop CS4 or 5 to try it out for ourselves...

Update: You know what, my heart goes out to her. At first I obviously thought it was hysterical, but seeing how it has ballooned all over the internet... Poor girl, really. I mean look at this piece of art work - try and follow it while the video is playing:

I've been meaning to write a decent post, a long one, for quite a while. Something verbal, with maybe only a small picture or something, and actually that day has... not arrive yet. I'm sorry, this is another short, unplanned post, just a way to deliver something cool I found.
You probably know writer/director Kevin Smith. I really love him: all his movies, his blog, his podcast - really, he's so irreverent you can't just not adore him.
While i was rumbling through old posts, I noticed this - it's just a few pictures of his house, but for me it's just a bit more then that. Let me put this into context: In MTV's cribs, each week, a different small unknown rapper\producer invites you to see his house - I must have seen hundred of episodes where the house is usually some monstrosity, filled with empty rooms, golden bathtubs and big screen TV's.
Well, just check the link. finally a house I can live in. If I had all of Mr. Smith's money my house would probably turn out to be a lot like his, maybe a lit less messy...
