Friday Links!

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and this is fascinating: Glitch Art. Also, and this song is a destructive virus rampaging across the world, it's Gotye - Somebodies: A YouTube Orchestra. What's quite cool, though, is that Gotye credits every musician in that video on his official web page. One more, and it's quite remarkable: WebGL Water.

From Jim, and this could be quite helpful: Terms of Service; Didn't Read. Also, and these photos of abandoned places are simply amazing: Abandoned. Note: the title is officially "Abandoned P*rn" (with the 'o' intact), so I have no idea how that will interact with crazy work internet filters.

From C. Lee, and this is an amazing piece of kit: BioLite CampStove. It can charge your USB gadgets. Seriously. Next, and I really have no words to adequately gloss these guys, it's Advanced Cat Yodeling.

From Dan Quock, and these are very funny: This Is How Olympic Divers Really Look While Diving.

From Eric Higgins-Freese, and this is magnificent: The Largest Ever 3D Map of the Universe. Also, on a less sublime but still interesting note: Why doesn’t sand stick to beach volleyball players?.

From Max Weinstein, and this is strangely riveting: video walkthrough of Trespasser.

From Sirius, and this could be huge: UCLA scientist discovers plate tectonics on Mars. Also, and this is amazing: Fire ants survive on food being microwaved .

From Steven Davis, and just look at this disruptive technology from the past: How Paperbacks Transformed the Way Americans Read .
