Sometimes you have to make things because they scare you. From the linked video which offers just an endless rainbow of animated gif possibilities.
He stood so still while the world moved on around him. Just a little animated gif made from two shots I took walking past this gentleman staring so intently at his phone. He didn’t move a bit but because I was walking the shot shifted some allowing me to animate it and give you this 3D feel. I know I’ve seen this before but my memory of the name for it is hazy. It did lead me to stereoscopy, stereo photography and animated stereograms so sometimes a bad memory leads to good things. And it turns out at least one person would call this a stereoscopic animated gif. I also figured this was a #ds106 assignment and was not disappointed. Since this was the first #ds106 assignment I’ve done in a long while, I threw in a tutorial as a form of tithing. I do all of this of my own free will and in spite of Jim Groom’s personality rather than because of it.
I’m trying to do a better job documenting how the InternetInformation, people, actions/interactions, habits- or something like that. does things that make me happy. It’s fun to watch different flows and people come together to take things to another level.

Open Reflection So I put this out on TwitterNote how I avoided using the word ‘tweeted’.. and the #ds106 assignment response to #funeralselfies is to create the most inappropriate selfie (historical or otherwise) possible — Tom Woodward (@twoodwar) October 30, 2013 I made the following bad example after a few of my original thoughts turned out far too gruesome even for me. Feedback/Amplification William Berry then sent me an email that was something like this later blog post. Essentially, William had done a much better example using Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth. With this as inspiration, I put in some after trick or treating time and made four historical examples. It’s also now made […]
These were all focused on historical “selfies” right before disasters but you could do the opposite. I was inspired by the horrible and fascinating Selfies at Funerals Tumblr. You might also be appalled/inspired by Rich Kids of Instagram. I really don’t know quite enough about the selfie/hashtag culture to do this really well. The details with hashtags are what make it interesting and you need to do some research to make it work properly. There is work in humor. Get the Photoshop template here.
