I don’t know what SKRWT is supposed to mean, but it is apparently “the missing link in high-end smartphone photography” editing apps (for iOS). The bold minimalism may make it seem worthless. And the name is stupid, but don’t be deceived. It is indeed quite a useful tool. I recommend it.

There are three tiny teeth on the surface of the cap. Press it upside down on the foil to puncture the seal of the photographic chemical container and then rotate to cut open. Such built-in utility is an example of good design.
Naturally, Uline products exhibit good design with regard to packaging.

Well, thanks for this! I guess it is a small world, after all. I saw y’all open for Built to Spill last year in Austin. I listen to The Shivers all the time at work now. Go Spurs Go! And keep up the good stuff.
I don’t want to suggest that there is nothing left to experience before original works of art except a certain sense of awe, because they have survived, because they are genuine, because they are absurdly valuable. A lot more is possible. But only if art is stripped of the false mystery and the false religiosity which surrounds it. This religiosity, usually linked with cash value, but always invoked in the name of culture and civilisation is in fact a substitute for what paintings lost when the camera made them reproducible.
Facebook uses face recognition software to identify its users in photos. This works via a ‘template’ of your facial features that is created from your profile images. These features — the distance between your eyes, the symmetry of your mouth — generally do not change over time. Unlike a photograph, which captures some ephemeral expression of who you are at a particular moment, a face recognition template forever remains your portrait. It is all possible photos, taken and untaken, by which you, or someone else, might document your life.
These templates are Facebook’s proprietary data. For a brief period in 2013, users could access their template using the “Download a copy of your Facebook data” option in the settings (it is no longer included in the download). The information is unusable in its raw form without knowing the specifics of Facebook’s algorithm. But as an irrevocable corporate byproduct, the future implications of such data remain unclear.
Eternal Portraits is a series of printed and framed face recognition template data from our friends and ourselves.
