Lifelapse — "Relive your life"

Your life in 30 second intervals.


Why not?


Beats the movie.


Wrote Michael Rose in a June 28, 2011 TUAW post, "The concept is pretty simple: the app takes a picture every 30 seconds, then combines them into time-lapse videos like the one above [recorded in Lisbon, Portugal]."

99 cents.

MorphWorld: Mitt Romney into Margaret Thatcher*

Labour isn't working

*His campaign advertising.

Witness his ad (above), a revival of Margaret Thatcher's Conservative Party campaign against incumbent Labour in the 1970s.

It's not plagiarism if you give credit and Romney adviser Stuart Stevens on the Romney web site specifically credits Saatchi and Saatchi, who created the original campaign for the British Conservatives.

What's old is new again.

Darwin's Marginalia


330 of his most heavily annotated titles, from his personal library, now online.

Free, the way we like it.


Wrote Elizabeth Pennisi in yesterday's Washington Post, "When evolution theorist Charles Darwin finished reading Charles Lyell's 'Principles of Geology,' he scribbled on the last page, 'if this were true, adios theory.' Such comments appear in the margins of about half of the famed naturalist's 1,480 books, revealing an avid, thoughtful reader constantly evaluating his ideas and those of other authors."

"Now anyone can peer into those pages to see how Darwin's thinking changed as he developed his theory of evolution. The 330 most heavily annotated titles are now digitized and online at the Biodiversity Heritage Library (www.biodiversitylibrary.org), a project to put natural history information on the Web. The image of each page comes with a window describing the locations of Darwin's notes and a transcription of his scrawl [below].

One can also search his scribblings by subject."
