Cool post, this was awesome. People be careful - Manning's could trigger a migraine - wow! If my sister watched this she would be toast.

Like many an art fair, it has it's good stuff and the "wha?" But overall, it leaves you feeling really hopeful for this new medium -- and hopeful about things in general. (Before virtual art goes any further, however, it has to weed out the flashers. Michael Manning, this means you.)

Awesome. Screw the company website, from now on every PC I have to set up is getting Freakin' Cats set as the default homepage.

Freakin' Cats is a Magic Eye whose secret image is God.

For IE users who were initially confounded as I was: It doesn't seem like a lot of these work in IE, yet do work in Chrome (presumably FireFox as well).

Pretty cool stuff. It makes me wonder how much this retroweb fad will last (hopefully forever).
