GIF IT UP is an annual gif-making competition for the most creative reuse of digitised cultural heritage material. It is run by Europeana in close cooperation with Digital Public Library of America, Digital NZ and Trove. In 2020 new content partners joined the fun – Japan Search and DAG Museums in Kolkata, while this year we welcome the Art Institute of Chicago.

HT to Paul Bond for reminding me. Some nice entries. I have entered In the past but forgot about Gif it up. A fun way to draw attention to some serious sharing of digital by museums and libraries.

 

I’ve got my raspberry pi working as a webcam posting gifs every 9 minutes and stills every 5. Gif Cam.

The pi has been sitting around for a while acting as a web server with a broken tweetbot. It took very little effort to get it taking photos from our window and showing them on the web. Little more to grab a bunch and gif them (Gifsicle again). A better view might be more interesting.

I’ve not spent as much time as I’d like playing with the pi but the potential for play, learning and work seems large.
