Intel Profile at Oracle World

The profile Intel made of me back in the spring is getting around. Here's a shot of it in a kiosk at Oracle Open World in Moscone Center.

Thanks Steve Mason for taking the picture and passing it on to me. I really appreciate it when people let me know they've seen my artwork somewhere, and especially if they document it like Steve did.

iGoogle Theme

A quick bit of good news: Google has selected me for their "world class" art and design directory where I'm now listed with Jeff Koons, Shepard Fairey, John Maeda, Radiohead, Paul Frank, etc.

You can set the theme for your Google home page to it here and then your background will change every hour. If you like it, please comment.

The announcement on their official blog uses my artwork in the representative image.

OpenLaszlo Sheep Viewer

Max Carlson just whipped together a little viewer into the heart of the 2.7 beta server. Get the source code here. It's made with and hosted by OpenLaszlo. It shows you the most recently rendered frames by the network, and if you mouse-over them, it shows the full frame.

A viewer like this can be hosted anywhere. The 2.7 beta sheepserver has a rudimentary XML query API to support this kind of app, and I plan on extending it to allow all kinds of stuff. Basically there are 3 calls: sheep, recent_frames, and top_sheep. Real documentation will be forthcoming, but that should get you started. Requests are welcome. Thanks Max!
