typographic search


Type in a word. The programme searches for all the books on Amazon where that one word appears. And just to get you more excited it arranges all the books it's found to form that word. Click on any book that forms the word and you can buy it from Amazon. wheeeeeeee!!

ta ta google


You get to see your search results (as a web page). Saves a lot of time as you don't have to do the painful 'Open in new window' routine.
Also got a very classy, fun, user-friendly layout.

dear future


It's really cool to receive a letter from yourself about where you thought you'd be a year (two years? more?) later.



Truly worth a link.

"Rotterdam-based photographer Ari Versluis and stylist Ellie Uyttenbroek have worked together since October 1994. Inspired by a shared interest in the striking dress codes of various social groups, they have systematically documented numerous identities over the last 8 years. Rotterdam's heterogeneous, multicultural street scene remains a major source of inspiration for Ari Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek, although since 1998 they have also worked in cities abroad.
They call their series Exactitudes: a contraction of exact and attitude. By registering their subjects in an identical framework, with similar poses and a strictly observed dress code, Versluis and Uyttenbroek provide an almost scientific, anthropological record of people's attempts to distinguish themselves from others by assuming a group identity. The apparent contradiction between individuality and uniformity is, however, taken to such extremes in their arresting objective-looking photographic viewpoint and stylistic analysis that the artistic aspect clearly dominates the purely documentary element.
