Erik T subset ... and test

I'm sure this'll look a mess, but it's a collection of "catch up with Erik T" links, and at the same time a test of what formatting is done by blogger when you email a posting. So, I catch up with Erik Thauvin not by reading nor even skimming all of the articles, but rather by collecting the ones that I otherwise might have clicked on, here in this text file labeled as an html file. Sort of a link-reskimming of the Web's premier Java-orientd link-skimmer. Timeline starts about 12/22 or so.
Extra tidbits to note: - lucane.org free "groupware" - that logger "anti-framework" - neward's predictions for 2k5, except that his site is currently down. Note that Bruce Eckel has a new weblog for shorter thoughts.

Recursive animations

I wrote a little about this two years ago on GIGO. Last week (I can't keep up with those guys), boingboing noted a similar picture, and linked to instructions for how to make such a thing. I couldn't find any names on the mantasoft.co.uk site.
