About

Plurib.us is an evolving collaboration by Brian and Peter, begun in 2002.

Not sure why a comic with stick figures suddenly seems like the best medium for conveying this somewhat complex concept.

Cartoonists Ryan North (of Dinosaur Comics) and David Malki (of Wondermark) each keep "finding" terrible books that the other has written.

2 new cautionary tales of online account attacks.  (None of these involve hacking passwords.  I guess they're strong enough now that they're not the low-hanging fruit anymore.)

If I was trapped on an island with just one web site, this would be a contender.

Radio Free Earth "Radio Free Earth finds the #1 song according to the Billboard Charts on a random (or determined) date, measures how long ago that date was, finds a named star that distance away, and then outputs which star that #1 song is just reaching at this moment."

Bad photography, and a dry wit.  (And a descriptive url.)

The new Ultimate Meal.  It sounds great.

It's still very chalky. Not gritty -- there's no feeling of sand or anything, just smooth powder rolling through my mouth. Fortunately, being chilled has drastically improved my perception of how it tastes.

...

I don't feel particularly energized, but I don't feel particularly un-energized, either.

Yet another site found by asking "I wonder if someone's made a site that does X?".

With this combined with kindle samples, I may never wonder what to read next again.
I don't plan on being a runner, but I find this really inspiring anyway.

Cool time visualization.  Spoiler: we are a spec of time.  Also, the earth existed for a good portion of the existence of the universe?

First, consider this Shaker hymn.

Then, consider this performance by the Voices of East Harlem at Sing Sing Prison .

Google is sunsetting Reader.  To quote my wife, "What are we supposed to do!?"

The most accessible song on the new They Might Be Giants album also has the creepiest lyrics.

(Might they have been shooting for inaccessibility on this one??)
This is my new favorite thing:
In 1987, an anonymous team of computer scientists from the Kyrgyz Soviet Socialist Republic wrote a series of children's books based on the popular Choose Your Own Adventure series. The books were hastily translated into English and a small number were exported to America, but the CIA, fearing a possible Soviet mind control scheme, confiscated them all before they could be sold.

Now declassified, the books have been lovingly converted to a digital hypertext format and put online for the English-speaking world to enjoy.

Another one of my ideas, stolen.  (Apparently my ideas are not particularly unique.)

I might just listen to this song on repeat for the rest of the day.

You'll probably want to turn up your speakers, put on sunglasses, and hold up a glowstick while giving a meaningful look to those around you:

This web page plays a song for as long as you want, but it doesn't just loop the song -- it analyzes the structure and loops segments that make sense next to each other.

Pick an already-uploaded song just to see how they present the visualization of the song. For those of us who tend to listen to the same song over and over, this is pretty much the greatest thing in the world.
Reading about Supreme Court arguments restores my faith in humanity.  There a people who appear to think thoroughly, who have some measurable control of our society.  yay.
