Crowd-Sourced Color Names by XKCD

Yesterday, I was looking at the formatting options for a graphing package and noticed an option to use named colors "from the xkcd survey."

That was a new thing to me. As it turns out, the author of the xkcd.com comics created an online survey of color names about five years ago and over 200,000 users contributed; discussion of results here. It's pretty funny and it's also real science. Because color names are weird.

You can also look at a list sorted alphabetically by name which reveals some rather interesting properties of the set.

Roadskater.net Jersey Photo Mosaic Graphic for Your Inline Skate Boots, Frame, Helmet

I was looking for some trim for my skate frame and after so much time working on boots I decided just to make a photo mosaic of the three jerseys in skatesky, sunleaves and roadviolets. I wanted a flag-waving effect, so i took photos of the jerseys outside hanging vertically instead of smoothed out lying flat. The warping and imperfections were what I wanted, as repeated imperfections still have a pattern, but to me a more interesting one. These are the top-left edge versions, but I made some others that made full, even rows, too. Let me know via email if you want any of that.
