- I came across the Hacker Emblem (hate ESR,
love Life, hate emblems, love references people won't get ...), which
reminded me how completely winning Conway's
Life is. A couple of pattern libraries for you, and,
Holy of Holies, the Unit
Cell - Life in Life. If you understand, deep down in your
limbic system, why this is cool, you have the Hacker Nature. One of the
things that most amazes me about Life is not Life itself, but the fact
that, over the last thirty years, the Life hacking community has
developed a pretty solid body of knowledge about making structures in
the Life universe; in effect, they have developed engineering for a
universe with utterly different physical laws. And that period
15 glider gun is so cool. Anyway, there's dmoz
if you want it.
- I love
the smell of grilled moron in the morning.
- Reminder to self: do not ever try to read someone's bookmarks on del.icio.us.
- One day, all city maps will be like this.
photos which reveal maps on mouseover are an excellent start.
