The blog post isn´t really new, but just found some really nice words on the “History of the Internet” on the blog of John Nack — Thanks
Melih Bilgil’s The History of the Internet tells, well, you know, using minimal lines but loads of attention to detail. (The fly-over of Cuba is terrific.) Adobe designer Ethan Eismann writes, “My new personal mission in life is to bring this level or higher of engaging instruction to an Adobe welcome screen near you.”
David Carswell contributed a Microsoft Visio 2007 stencil incorporating the PICOL SVG iconset (090316). This stencil is an import of the SVG icons, with aspect-ratio protection applied, and is released under the same license as PICOL itself.
Pictodeck is just what it sounds like — a deck of pictograms. It’s a collection of over 700 vector pictograms taken from four different sets: PICOL, Android Icons, Pictoico and Freshpixel. Aaron Richard, the creator of Pictodeck, has converted all of these sets and made them available for Keynote users.
Pictodeck is available for download on Aaron Richards website.
For all the german readers of the PICOL Blog. On October 20th there will be a feature by the director Mike Schaefer in the show “Quarks & Co” on the TV channel WDR.
The episode is called “Die Macht des Internets”. The feature of Mike Schaefer uses parts of the animation “History of the Internet” and for this episode we developed two more takes, which show the Internet of today. In this feature Mike made an very interesting interview with Lawrence Roberts, who was chief scientist at the ARPA.
For more information visit the website of “Quarks & Co“.
Don´t miss the show.
