Are you interested in volcanos?
You should check out the website of +Rick Lutz!
 
Explore volcanos around the world

Round about 2000 volcano locations are stored in my database.
I'm proudly present the new tour, which shows you the earth's structure, volcano formation and types of volcanic eruptions.

Do you have suggestions for further animations? Please let me know!

Have fun and enjoy the beauty of volcanoes!

What a bummer that such a great photo of Cologne has to be shared with such sad news.

Sorry to hear that +Trey Ratcliff.

But you shouldn't leave Cologne to get to Düsseldorf.
(just kidding since I see you got a replacement quick).
 
My camera bag, stolen in Germany.  SAD EMOTICON.

I'm on my way to Dubai for one of our upcoming events: http://www.stuckincustoms.com/events/ (See you guys soon!), and I spent the whole afternoon and night in Cologne, Germany.  About midnight, I caught a train back to Dusseldorf, where I am staying because we're sampling some print images from Grieger.  Anyway, while I was on the train I got robbed! Can you believe it?  I wasn't hurt.  I'm 100% or whatever, but they got all my cameras and my sweet sweet Leica lenses.  mega-sad-emoticon-japanese-anime-sadface.

Anyway, if anyone has any extra Leica lenses in Dubai, well, I'd like to borrow them. I'll buy you a drink and we can talk about sad and happy moments in life...

I took this photo in Cologne, a few hours before the incident.  Luckily they did not grab my big tripod with the A7r on it, which had [most] of the photos for the evening... but they got the A7ii and many sad and lonely lenses.. :(

Pulsating Circles
#CirclesCounted: 100

In my 2nd processing project, I'm drawing some circles with a random position and a random color on the screen.
The animation is done by changing the opacity of the circles over the time.

Reload the page (http://www.circlecount.com/processing/2) and see how the positions and colors are changing every time.

As "always" (2 times now ;) ) you can find the full processing code on the linked page.

Enjoy!

Bumping CircleCount Logos
my first (and for sure not the last) +Processing project

Processing is an open source programming language and like you can see here, you can do crazy things with just a few lines of code.

You can find the live animation on the linked page (reload to see that the position is everytime randomly calculated) and you can see also the code there.

#CirclesCounted: 700

Fabio Nelli is describing here how to use Processing to create such an animation.

I like his introduction:
About a week ago, giving a quick look at Google+, I found at a very attractive animated GIF. It showed a number of black balls orbiting around the points of a lattice. These balls were rotating all together, each with an angle slightly offset with respect to the nearby. The whole appeared as a wave that flows through a surface.

This animation impressed me so much that this morning I decided to make a similar copy by writing code with Processing.

it describes almost exactly what I thought in the last months when I saw the animations by Bees & Bombs here on Google+.

#QuickTeaser: There are some new animations coming soon ;)

I love the waves, but I forgot about the fact that I might get sea sick! :D

Dynamic Opacity
#CirclesCounted: 70

A pulsation can be generated with different elements. In this case the pulsation is done by many circles with a dynamic opacity. The more circles used, the less you can see different circles in the animation.

You can find the live animation and the full (processing) code here:
http://www.circlecount.com/processing/4

And here is the overview in case you have missed one:

Enjoy!

Jittering Circles
#CirclesCounted: 50

The challenge was here to position different sized circles this way and let them jitter.

Not all of us will understand these jokes, but if you understand you will like them.
Right +Rick Lutz? ;)

Now I need to check which color #BADA55  is ;)

34 CSS Puns

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a stylesheet language that defines how the content on a web page is to be displayed with colors, borders, fonts, backgrounds etc. Inspired by this Reddit thread, today’s post showcases 34 CSS puns that’ll put a smile on every web designer’s face. The interesting bit is that even if you have no clue about the technicalities, you’ll still understand and enjoy these puns.

Some of these are quite good.

You can watch the Superbowl also here in Germany, but is the genre +SAT.1​ has chosen here the right one? ;)

Wouldn't the proper genre be "Advertisement"? ;)

Introduction
I'm interested in everything around the web
New startups, new techniques, new news ;)

I'm playing a lot with datasets, statistics and databases. It's great when some games with numbers result in very interesting statistics but it's also nice to learn for myself with such games without any external feedback.

I speak German, Greek, English, a little French, very little Polish and SQL ;)

I'm pushing around code in php, mysql, javascript (html/css) and I'm really happy, to know great people who are pushing bit and vector so that I don't have to.
