For today's TDC... #tdc3296 #ds106 Write a ds106-nine-years birthday poem in Lu Yu Quatrain style https://dlvr.it/RqyQcY

Fireworks is old but I love it still.
My gifs are glitchy but they have had a few likes.
#ds106 Tweets and posts bulging with inspiration flow into view.
#tdc3296, nine years you say, a butterfly dream.

#tdc3274 #ds106 RIP Flash. I recall Flash with fondness. Anything “influenced by HyperTalk” can’t be all bad. Got edu licenses for MX 2004 & taught kids some animation fun. Enjoyed the scripting. Played with & made stuff, once got paid! Action Script 3 was 2 hard for me.

For today’s TDC… #tdc3273 #ds106 2020 In a Photo

If a picture can be monetarily equivalenced to an arbitrary number of words, then a photo ought to be able to somehow encapsulate a year. Or represent it. Or say something about it.

Find, or better yet, take a photo, that speaks to something about 2020 in its entirety. Go for representational not literal (please pass on the burning trash fires, we know that one).

I thought this one was pretty sensational…

from: #tdc3273 #ds106 2020 In a Photo | The Daily Create

I am kind of stumped summing up 2020 in a photo. So I took the video of my year of flickr photos and played with it.

The top is a slitscan of the video. the centre line of each frame. I dug out procesing and a script from Slit Cam: Slit camera timeline images from video..

The lower half uses ShantnuS/AverageFrameColour: 🎨 Creates an image of average frame colours for a YouTube video which I found on github. Unfortunately this failed at the download. so I edited the python script to use a local file. This without any knowledge (other than spaces are important) of python.

A useful exercise as it reminded my old brain of processing which has a lot of possibilities for fun, and proved that you don’t need to know much to make simple edits of code.
