Designing a New Dutch 5 Euro Coin – Art and Tech Collide

| October 30, 2008

This is *so* cool. I want one! A contest was held to design a new Dutch 5 Euro coin, and a guy named Stani won, using fairly geeky methods and only free software to come up with something that’s actually quite beautiful and modern. You can read about his detailed methodology and his rationale at [...]

The solution to the global financial crisis. http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/f88f8d6385 See more Natalie Portman videos at Funny or Die I’ve never been a big fan of SNL, too many misses for my taste, but the political ones these past few weeks have been pretty sharp. “Shopping.” Ahh, Tina Fey is so awesome! http://www.funnyordie.com/jokes/4c2ccba2c1

| October 17, 2008
