Sprites of yesteryear

Very interesting art. Richard Horsman has taken sprites from old games and converted them to 3D images. Cool.

Great article about what its like living in the valley during the web2.0 growth. I agree there is less money squandered on stupid ideas. Also the cost of development is a lot lower.

During the first boom-bust, startups were spending silly money of areons, party launches, clustered oracle servers, huge sun boxes and weblogic bea server-apps. With the maturity of Open Source, we have real stable frameworks and operating systems for free.

Communication is better now. IM is another cog in your communication rather than the exception. With better high-bandwidth penetration in the home, it means that everyone is contributing and producing content.

Fantastic! :)
