xkcd - Tetris Hell - Playable Game xkcd, in all its wisdom, recently depicted Hell as a game of Tetris in a bullet-shaped playing frame, such that you can never quiiiite create a row. Now, a fan has made it into a playable game, which adds extra bouncy physics to the hellishness that is Tetris with impossible rows.

First, it’s easy to start projects, quick to piece together code and simple to share the results – it’s an ideal rapid-prototyping tool. Second, the wide variety of libraries available mean that it’s easy to plug into data in various formats and process the data into an easily-usable form.

I was reminded of all of these advantages last week when I sat down to build some simple visualizations from the newly-opened New York Times APIs.

His presentation was on his new experimental work, titled “space”. It was a real treat to see how Joshua pushes himself and his work to the next level. He is by far a master in this area.
