I’m not a regular gamer, but once in a while I stumble upon a video game I start playing and it can get quite addictive.
But what I do later on: I grab my pair of AKGs and listen to the soundtrack of a game I was really addicted to while coding. It turns the coding and problem solving into the same kind of addictive game. Can’t stop then.
At the moment I came back to World of Warcraft’s soundtrack. It’s been released unbelievable 10 years back!
Not many updates doesn’t mean there’s not much going on. But I’ve been simply too busy. Until I’m back with more updates, keep watching this video :)
The technology is mostly promoted to bring a more decent gaming experience to browsers without plugins, but I can’t wait to try this for data visualizations!

Here’s another weekly recap with some findings worth mentioning.
I had the chance to see Aaron Marcus‘ last year at HCI in Las Vegas. In this video he’s giving another great talk on HCI in Science Fiction movies and how sci-fi HCI relates to real developments and vice versa.
Aaron mentions briefly some company promotion videos envisioning future developments. I didn’t know this video by Apple from 1987, a concept sort of resembling an iPad prototype including Siri, 20 years before its actual inception. I wonder if there are social or gender studies on how companies envision technology innovation and how actual implementations affect our own work and behavior (or actually don’t change us). Like the desktop metaphor (which took even Apple years and years to abandon it in the context of tablets but MSFT is still struggling with it), the video presents a secretary metaphor. So while they present technological innovation, the idea of a visual personal virtual assistant just maps current hierarchical working structures (e.g. you still get the feeling someone is working for you like a secretary).
That’s it for this week :)

@walterra Right, it’s an animated snapshot in time. Particles trace field lines, not the path the wind takes as the system evolves over time

Last week I started a sort of weekly curated links’n’thoughts series. Here we go again.
Continued to investigate vert.x, but still had no time to give it a go myself. Here’s a nice stackoverflow thread including vert.x and similar projects. Offers three answers with the original developers of each framework in discussion kicking in. stackoverflow is so good and so bad in so many ways (see ‚closed as primarily opinion-based‘ in the thread).
More things worth mentioning:

Since I auto-post my bookmarks into a private pinboard account, I thought I’d restart this blogging endeavour with some curated links’n’thoughts.
I’d say vertx.io is my finding of the week. Can’t wait to try it out, it sounds too good to be true:
