I know you know what a selfie is, but what really is a selfie? People have been doing selfies for as long as man has had the ability to create images. They used to call them self-portraits. What artist do you know of that didn’t create at least one self-portrait (artistic selfie).
A Picasso Selfie? – This self-portrait was drawn in 1907 – Experts are stunned by the cell phone in his hand. How did he know?
What is the physiological drive behind a self photo? Maybe it’s the desire to see how you look to the outside world so you take the photo. Then after reviewing the photo and you like what you see, you then decide to publish worldwide. Then again, after looking at some selfies posted on the Internet. I tend to think there was not much thought put into the process. In any case, here’s to all the selfies out there. You had enough courage (or stupidity) to put yourself out there for the whole world to appreciate (or laugh at).
This post is for all you late night computer programmers, hackers, artists and other computerholics. It is you who create all the cool stuff whether it’s the latest video game, animated movie, or deviant art. I think there is something about those late hours (sometimes very early hours) that sparks creativity in human beings. So take a chug of your energy drink (preferably Linux Beast Energy Drink) and get back to work. The night is still young!
Just out of curiosity, what was the first thing you noticed in the above picture. Was it the computerized wire framed penguin? Was it the energy drink? Or did the hot yoga pants catch your eye? Or was it something else? Please leave your answer in the comment section below.
Whenever, I use a smartphone or tablet I usually get a sore neck from tilting my head down to view the screen. I could always raise the phone to eye level, but then my arm would get tired. I predict a future of bad posture and crooked necks for the next generation. Not to mention arthritus from typing on that tiny screen.
But, don’t listen to me. You better get in line at the phone store before you lose your place.
I don’t give a fork. This is just a quick post to display my latest artwork simply called “i don’t give a fork“. The fork refers to a Linux fork. Feel free to share or use this artwork. I don’t give a fork what you do with it. Ha ha ha
What is a Linux Fork?
(from wikipedia) In computing, particularly in the context of the Unix operating system and its workalikes, fork is an operation whereby a process creates a copy of itself. It is usually a system call, implemented in the kernel. Fork is the primary (and historically, only) method of process creation on Unix-like operating systems.
I can’t look at that chart at not think of Pacman. According to w3techs.com, 67 percent of web servers run some form of Unix and most of those machines are running Linux. So I guess Linux is like a giant Pacman munching on other operating systems. Have fun with the graphic. Feel free to share.
Here’s a cool wallpaper design that you can share with your friends or just set as the background image on your computer. It features a sexy female robot with a beautiful Martian landscape as the backdrop.
Disclaimer: This is a fictional wallpaper. Mars is not really hiring at this time (that I know of anyway).
According to w3techs.com, 67 percent of web servers are running some type of Unix operation system. And then out of those computers, 55 percent are using Linux, which is a subcatagory of Unix. I guess that really does put the little peguin (tux) on top of the world. However, just because Linux is great at running big powerful web servers does not mean it doesn’t make a great desktop operating system, because it does. In fact, I’m running my desktop computer on Linux right now to write this blog and I’m very satisfied with the performance.
(from wikipedia) Linux was originally developed as a free operating system for Intel x86-based personal computers. It has since been ported to more computer hardware platforms than any other operating system. It is a leading operating system on servers and other big iron systems such as mainframe computers and supercomputers. As of June 2013, more than 95% of the world’s 500 fastest supercomputers run some variant of Linux, including all the 44 fastest. Linux also runs on embedded systems, which are devices whose operating system is typically built into the firmware and is highly tailored to the system; this includes mobile phones, tablet computers, network routers, facility automation controls, televisions and video game consoles. Android, which is a widely used operating system for mobile devices, is built on top of the Linux kernel.
