Issuu, great service and free!

This one comes from a Power Point Presentation that I've simply uploaded while Issuu does all the work. It's a draft (part 1) from a larger presentation on ancient Greek iconography  which can be found here. Read-Only so press the read-only button on the right. While Blurb looks great,  intuitive and very adjustable still there is a price tag on it, that however you may (or may not) recover by selling your books. I'll stick to this one for now...

New Art Forn: IOGraph

Formerly known as MousePath it was made by Moscow designer Anatoly Zenkov to brighten up the routine work. Posting it at Flickr caused informal interest and afterward Anatoly Zenkov and his colleague Andrey Shipilov decided to evolve the app. IOGraph is an application that turns mouse movements into a modern art. The idea is that you just run it and do your usual day stuff at the computer. Go back to IOGraph after a while and grab a nice picture of what you’ve done! Of course we have some social pages to follow: IOGraph Twitter and Facebook page for example. You can download the program here.

En vanuit het woestijnzand...

verscheen de eerste kerk. Geen Photoshop hier, nee, Turnhout lijkt deze dagen wel Bagdad of een middelgrote Afrikaanse stad. Overal worden maar al te ijverig gebouwen afgebroken en van opbouw geen enkel spoor. Cultuurtempel de Warande staat beschaamd in haar nakie en deze St-Pieter dendert onder tientallen bulldozers. 2012 staat immers voor de deur en we zullen het geweten hebben. Meer foto's later.

And from the desert sand ...
appeared the first church. No Photoshop here, no, these days Turnhout looks like Baghdad or a medium sized African city. Everywhere buildings are demolished all too eagerly and construction seems far away. The Temple of Culture "De Warande" is stripped down to her shame and Saint Peter  trembles among dozens of bulldozers. 2012 is close and we all are paying  the price... More photos later.
