Oscans service for Seriously Important Photographs

My old Islets, Reflections and Schooling transparencies (slides 17, 23, 31) were amongst many scanned efficiently by Oscans.

The photos from the South Africa trip used in the slide show, both Durban (slide 8) and Stellenbosch (Workshop, 9, and Mill Stream, 18) are all standard miniatures produced by iPhoto when importing from the camera.

The sunset (33) was taken from a Fremantle car park after dinner on a one night stopover en route to Stellenbosch. Returning to the car after dinner, I climbed a couple of rocks onto the adjacent breakwater, took one shot, checked it on the playback screen and could not see any point taking any more. The seagull has not yet claimed its appearance fee.

Reflections, Schooling and Freo Sunset have been rerendered to serve as wallpaper for my 24 inch iMac's 1920 x 1200 LCD, each linked from the thumbnails above. A larger version of the old shot en route Flinders Island of the rocky islets off Wilson's Promontory is similarly linked below.

The thumbnail above of the Google Earth view of those islets (slide 17) links to the wider view it was cropped from, a view which includes relevant positional data and detailed image credits.

The first random trial aimed at using the uniquely simple TickTock rule (at right) to characterise network connectivity of a ten node network produced the ‘Embryology’ result which proved much more significant (slide 20) than further analysis of actual citation and word use data was becoming.

The ‘Life in a Tube’ pentadecathalon example (slide 6) is discussed in a TransForum post, with more examples available via an NKS Forum thread also linked from the follow up TransForum post, and as background at slide 31 of the slideshow for my OSDC 2004 paper on the programming of TicKTock.
