Jim Golden Shows Obsolete Technology in GIF Form. From Flavorwire:

Photographer Jim Golden specializes in still life and product photography. He honed his craft in the New York advertising world before relocating to Portland, where he combined his two specialties to gorgeous effect in his latest project: Relics of Technology (which we spotted on The Verge). In Relics, Golden puts obsolete technology center stage, creating a beautifully arranged gallery that acts as a “Land of Misfit Toys” for the past toys of grown-ups.

Golden took two distinct routes with Relics. In the first, he created a series of gorgeous, high-quality GIFs that show (for the youths!) how things like rotary phones, slide projectors, and electric typewriters used to function. And for the second, he’s placed floppy discs (who remembered there were so many different kinds?), VHS tapes, and those mini-cassettes from your answering machine into pleasing patterns that would paper a hipster’s walls perfectly, or make for a beautifully ironic Facebook cover photo….

“The seeds for the Relics of Technology project started when I found a brick cellphone at a thrift store in rural Oregon,” Golden tells The Verge. “Since finding it, similar bits and pieces of old technology and media kept grabbing my attention. The fascination was equal parts nostalgia for the forms, and curiosity as to what had become of them.” …

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
