Look at This Amazing Animated Typography, Built by a Google Whiz

Wired News (12/23/13) Kyle VanHemert 

Web developers will be able to animate Internet typography with nothing but code using a new website by Jono Brandel, a designer from the Google Creative Lab. Project Anitype provides developers with Javascript code, which they can use to add all sorts of movement to letterforms. Project Anitype has already drawn a handful of contributors who have produced several dozen examples, including a gracefully pirouetting P, a B that explodes and then snaps into place, and an L that shivers like a line from an electrocardiogram. Brandel offers an easy sandbox-style interface, which lets users drop code in the pane on the left and see how it turns out in a preview window on the right. Brandel believes digital displays really want flux, and moving topography is just one more way to move screens in that direction. He says animated type could be used for headlines, or as the drop caps that start off long magazine pieces, and could give Web content a quality that is more natively digital.

Google's C Alternative Gets an Update, but Will Developers Bite?

InfoWorld (12/02/13) Serdar Yegulalp

Google this week released version 1.2 of its Go open source programming language, which the company initially released four years ago as an alternative to C. Go was designed to improve on certain aspects of languages similar to C by leveraging multicore processors and offering modern language features such as dynamic typing. Furthermore, Go compiles rapidly with high performance. Google notes that "no major systems language has emerged in over a decade, but over that time the computing landscape has changed tremendously." Despite Go's reported benefits, its potential popularity among developers remains uncertain. Since Go's initial release in 2009, the language has not caught on significantly outside of Google enclaves. As with all new programming languages, Go faces the challenges of developers questioning language mutability, the risk involved in committing to something new, and the company's commitment to the project. Companies that have used Go in high-profile production contexts offer favorable feedback., for example, used Go to consolidate about 30 servers down to two, while Bitly and Braintree Payment Solutions also were impressed with what they accomplished using Go.

EU and Japan Team Up for 100 Gbps Internet Connections (07/03/13) Dan Worth

A partnership between the European Union and Japan could lead to the creation of more efficient networks that can handle vast amounts of data. Researchers will undertake projects in areas that include cybersecurity, network capacity, storage, high-density data traffic, and energy efficiency. The Strauss project will focus on developing network technologies that offer speeds of 100 Gbps, which is about 5,000 times faster than the average European broadband speed of about 20 Mbps. Currently, 1.7 million billion bytes of data are sent per minute, but traffic volumes are expected to grow 12-fold by 2018, according to the European Commission. Researchers will design an advanced optical Ethernet transport architecture that leverages software-defined networking principles, optical network visualization, and flexible optical circuit and packet-switching technologies beyond 100 Gbps. "Our future Internet should know no barriers, least of all barriers created because we did not prepare for the data revolution," says the EC's Neelie Kroes.
