Fluid Motion Simulations and Artwork When a droplet falls into shallow water, it creates a crown or "coronet". This droplet simulation was calculated using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). SPH is one of the most impressive-looking fluid simulation techniques. 37 Data-ish Blogs You might not know it, but there are actually a ton of data and visualization blogs out there.

Visualising Subversion with Gource Over the weekend I stumbled across a video link, released (I assume) by Flickr. The video is a visualisation of the last 7 years of commits into the Flickr Subversion repository. Wow, there’s a lot of work been done to Flickr over the past 7 years! What’s even more interesting is you can easily create the same type of visualisation with your own project using an open-source project called Gource. Diagram Software - The Best Choice for Diagramming All-in-one diagram software that makes it perfect for the following diagram software types. What's the diagram solution?

Why Daytrotter Why Daytrotter? Well, when we started Daytrotter in the early spring of 2006 it was created as a place of discovery for music lovers and a hole-in-the-wall-of-the-Heartland haven for passionate and inspiring musicians criss-crossing and cross-crissing the country and the world, hoping to find open and sympathetic ears. We're proud to say that Daytrotter has been the lifeblood or the beginning for thousands and thousands of artists through the years and the Daytrotter community consists of a knitting together of people, art and the musical honey that our hearts are drawn to. We use our studio here in Rock Island, Illinois, to capture pure musical magic on a daily basis and make those moments -- these important documents of a day and and a time -- available to the world to pick through and hold dear when they find something that they can't help but love.
