Introducing The National Algorithm – Sjef van Gaalen – Medium
[also tagging this for the slides themselves, especially the diptychs ]

"This is a write-up of the talk I’ve been giving while working on my current research project “The National Algorithm”, an investigation of the tensions and relationships embedded in modern camouflage patterns.

The talk consists of a heavily condensed history of modern military camouflage and what it has come to symbolise, then goes into the specifics of the project itself."

"Introducing the Netherlands Experimental Pattern, orange variant (NEP-Oranje). Created by reverse-engineering the fractal camouflage design methodology developed by TNO Defence for the Netherlands Armed Forces, NEP-Oranje is at the cutting edge of camouflage pattern design. Wear it with pride or wear it to hide, whenever a national frenzy reaches fever pitch you'll be covered."]

Chinese DIY Inventions - In Focus - The Atlantic
"One visible sign of China's recent economic growth is the rise in prominence of inventors and entrepreneurs. For years now, Chinese farmers, engineers, and businessmen have taken on ambitious do-it-yourself projects, constructing homemade submarines, helicopters, robots, safety equipment, weapons and much more. Some of the inventions are built out of passion, some with an eye toward profit, (some certainly safer than others), and a few have already led to sales for the inventors. Gathered here are recent photos of this DIY movement across China."

russell davies: what I meant to say at lift - part two - big red buttons and sliding into glass
"Touch & screens...if it's all we do...we're going to be missing most of our bodies & senses. Presentations/PowerPoint are an example. Conference organisers & software/hardware makers seem determined to promote fantasy that slides control themselves...computer off stage, hidden, controller as small as possible...seem to be working towards an ideal state where slides are advanced by an inflection in speaker's mind. ...reinforces & is reinforced by, a particular school of talks which imagines them as exchange of minds facilitated by language, occasionally supported by imagery...such a waste, like taking talking head off telly & going to see it live... We should be thinking of all the things we can to make ourselves more watchable...one...is to engage physically w/ our materials - our presentation, our slides. We should be performing PowerPoint not just showing it. You ought to be able to buy a PowerPoint Hero controller that gets you engaged the way Guitar Hero controller does."

SEEDMAGAZINE.COM § The Pre-Electric Slide
"Advances in lens-making technology in the early 1800s brought a whole new world into view for science enthusiasts—with better lenses came cheaper microscopes, so that cells, tissues, and even multicellular microorganisms could suddenly be seen in the comfort of one’s home. An industry of microscope slide-makers sprang up to feed this new demand, and as they searched for the best way to thin-slice a kidney or mount a cluster of diatoms, they advanced the science of microscopy while creating objects of unusual beauty. Here, selections from the collection of Howard Lynk, a hobbyist who researches the slide-makers of the 1840s-1860s, show some highlights of their oeuvre."

View Poster - More Talk, Less Chalk: Lexically Sparse Slides Improve Recall of Taught Material
"Classroom use of presentation software, whereby information is simultaneously delivered verbally and visually, risks overloading students' working memory and impairing learning. We compared traditional and lexically-sparse slide presentations, using multiple-choice and short essay answers to assess learning; participants exposed to traditional slides performed significantly worse on their essay answers.
