I heart identicons

9 block identicon

I’ve noticed these cool aztec looking icons around the web over the past few weeks. They represent someone’s Globally Recognized Avatar when they haven’t yet uploaded one of their own via gravitar.com.

So anyway, I figured there were say a couple of dozen of these things that were assigned randomly to users. And I thought they’d look pretty cool on a tshirt. So I went to look for them and found out that they’re waaaaaay cooler than I thought. They are generated from your IP address and so there are thousands um millions um a shedload of them!

Anyway, as I have a floating IP address, I just picked a random one that I liked and made a tshirt online, can’t wait for it to arrive.

reverse graffiti

you can’t get into trouble for cleaning muck off of the streets right? let’s hope not because some street artists are making some fantastic artwork using that technique, particularly Alexandre Orion from Brazil

Inhabitat ยป REVERSE GRAFFITI: Clean Green Street Art

wonder if they’ll make the kids go dirty up their reverse graffiti tags if they get caught…

update - even our local crap commercial radio station in Birmingham have had a go at reverse graffiti, that’s sure to make it uncool :-(
damn, I was hoping to have a go myself!
