I’ve already been impressed by the patience it requires to do animation and embroidery at the same time. But Nina Paley has crossed a line with this “Tree of life” done in 96 frames.
She even made a flipbook out of it.

What? Command-Line? Yes. Exactly. That thing with the computer where you see characters flying by just like when Neo found out about the Matrix. It seems cryptic and magic, doesn’t it? People doing this can only do illegal things for sure. Not.
The console, where all those commands happened to be typed, has been around since computers have monitors. And they still exist in modern computing. They come really handy for a lot of things and especially when the graphical interface is going bad or not even there at all.
#CLIfe is a workshop organized by Michael Murtaugh and I to teach you the basis of command-line manipulation, show you how useful (lifesaving?) this can be and have some fun with it. For the more advanced users, the workshop is oriented to CLI experimentations and knowledge sharing. Isn’t CLI a lifestyle afterall?

Need some motivations to come?
You want to resize 1000 jpegs and watermark them in one go. You want to stop worrying every time your software publisher changes (the order of) the icons. You think "sudo" is a martial art. You want to post to Facebook/Twitter/Identica/Tumblr/Wordpress/Blogger without a browser. You want to know your network settings without making 5 clicks. You think that plumbing is a computer skill. Christian Clavier is your DJ name. You're ready to take the red pill. You are a poet.
Don’t bring your mouse.
While searching for song covers for this weekly #CoverTuesday, I often end up watching total strangers covering famous songs in different ways. Most of the time, it’s not quite good. Sometimes, I even feel pity for them. But this one, although not perfect, had something special in his interpretation. Something touching, I believe. So here is Frankie Simon covering Radiohead’s Paranoid Android.
