our society through its photos

our society through its photos

Uzful.org’s Random Personal Picture Finder offers a great collection of photos which capture our society. The Random Personal Picture Finder takes random file name formulas used by digital cameras and does a search in Google’s Image finder. Nikon likes to use the DSCN0000.jpg formula. So uzful.org will insert a random number in that formula, like […]

mixko.net is selling large computer key stools. they are pretty cool. Though you have to have just the right space for these things or else they’ll look dorky. They are hallow, so you can hid things under it, like a Mac Mini or your pet cat.
