Two great samples from +Gerwin Sturm showing off the new Hangouts Media Effects API! 
 
Google Hangouts Media Effects API

This API just released in the Hangouts API dev channel(1)(2) offers a lot of new and fun possibilities.

My favourite effect chain is:
1. Copy -> Resource
2. Some effects
3. Swap -> Resource

What this does is to first save the current frame in a resource, apply some effects to the frame, and then swap the altered frame with the original unaltered frame.
You can repeat this process several times with different effects and different resource keys, and then have several different versions of the frame which you can use as overlay.

I created two samples that use this idea:

The first sample creates 4 copies with different duo-tone effects applied and then positions them to create a Warhol-style effect.
https://scary-experiments.appspot.com/hangout_effects/effects.js

In the second sample I use copy-crop-swap chains to split the frame into several sub-frames, and then position them as a slider puzzle that can be solved by other people in the Hangout.
https://scary-experiments.appspot.com/hangout_effects/slider.js

Since this is still in Dev channel I can't make the apps public, but if you want to give it a try you can create your own Hangout app project and point it to
https://scary-experiments.appspot.com/hangout_effects/effects.xml or https://scary-experiments.appspot.com/hangout_effects/slider.xml

Every time I find a new Vim extension / plug-in I like, I feel like I've just moved into a new apartment. Check out Tagbar!
What Tagbar is. Tagbar is a Vim plugin that provides an easy way to browse the tags of the current file and get an overview of its structure. It does this by creating a sidebar that displays the ctags-generated tags of the current file, ordered by their scope. This means that for example methods ...

The Media Effects API is now available in the Dev channel for Hangouts!
 
Today we are releasing the Media Effects API to the developer channel. This API provides a robust pipeline to compose visual effects onto Hangouts video calls. We've made accessible several fun and configurable visual effects, as well as face and hand tracking, that can be combined in creative ways.

We look forward to the crazy (and useful) things our developer community builds with these new features.

To learn more, check out our documentation, and, as always, we welcome feedback.

Cheers,
-Hangouts Team

Is your kid using too much internets? Are they behaving entitled about ping, responsiveness, bandwidth? They need a Vexbox!
The VexBox lets Parents control the speed of the Internet. Chores not done? See if your teen likes 56k. A great tool for Mom & Dad.

I think it might have better been marketed as a Volume control for the Internet: sometimes I want to turn the webs down and disconnect.

A really nice graphic showing how hardcore the El Cap free climb by Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson was.
A graphic tracks at attempt by Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson to free-climb the 3,000-foot Dawn Wall, a vertical sheet of mostly smooth granite that many believe is the hardest climb in the world.

This place is rather dreary, if you're at the MTA, odds are you're having a bad time. They should put their hours on the web site. The MTA is open from: Monday to Friday 8am - 5pm
