We’ve been talking copyright in #ds106 and I thought this would be cool to share. Andy Baio’s Kind of Bloop woes are being discussed all over the web right now.
I think it’s cool that Neven Mrgan, who worked on The Incident, adds this to the discussion:
That cover is NOT the original photo, downsampled. It’s a hand-crafted, precisely drawn interpretation of the source.
And, at the same time, he gives a wicked cool example of the hand-pixelated aesthetic. I am totally itching to try this. I hope some other #ds106ers try it out; it will be a few days before I can do this kind of work, if at all (unless I break down and take my laptop to the UK – I don’t think I can do this sort of work on the iPad).
Update: I am a dork for not noticing D’Arcy Norman linked to this in his post. I guess I glossed over that because I’d seen it q few days earlier. Sometimes the Internet is a small world.
