Folkscanomy: A Library of Books

Folksonomy: A system of classification derived from the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content; this practice is also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing, and social tagging. Coined by Thomas Vander Wal, it is a portmanteau of folk and taxonomy.

Folkscanomy: A collection of books and text derived from the efforts of volunteers to make information as widely available as possible. Because the metadata related to these scanned books are often done outside the library or cataloging industries, finding material can be more difficult. The Folkscanomy collection attempts to add a layer of classification for easier navigation.

I finally took some time to tinker with a 360 panoramic video in my favorite 3D fractal app, Mandelbulb 3D. This is intended for use with the Total Cinema 360 player - even better if you also have an Oculus Rift. :) Grab the player here: http://totalcinema360.com/index.html This is just a quick and dirty test render but it looks pretty nifty so I thought I'd share. I'll be working on some more refined versions of this technique soon. Check out my YouTube channel for more examples of my 3D...

On October 30 2018,...

To make up for our previous delayed episode, we’re releasing a new episode for the second week in a row! This week, we forgot to make up a topic so we were unfocused, obnoxious, near-heat-stroke victims. Listen in wonder as we discuss movies from this year, the nicest car we’ve driven, and Jason’s weird voice. Always remember - we never left.
