Inner Lake

I didn’t end up making version 2.0, but I did try something new and I ended up with a new template. It looks very much like the previous templates, but this new one has a second sphere. But this sphere is a “negative” sphere which subtracts itself from the central sphere, and what this creates is a small sphere within the sphere. You can see the results above, or you can look at these quicktime virtual reality 3D renderings (small, medium, and large). I think this 3D environment allows the viewer to see the depth & size of the renderings! I look forward to making these more often because they are so damned cool. Up next is another rendering using the new template and same torus texture with the Guinea-Bissau satellite image for the inner graphic.

In other news, the protests at the RNC have started. Last night there were 5,000 critical mass riders who took over the streets in NYC to promote a carless culture. There ended up being about 250 arrests and I am downloading an Indymedia video of the arrests. Due to how long it has taken to download this video, it looks like the NYC Indymedia is getting a lot of traffic. I hope other Indymedia websites begin to mirror the videos to ease the server load and allow for a faster transfer of information– after looking at the URL of the video I see that it is being hosted by San Fran’s Indymedia website (cool). I hope they start up “enemy combatant radio” like what was streamed out of San Fran during the protests when the Iraq war started.

I uploaded a good sound byte of Bill Maher urging protestors to riot. Good stuff..
