Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Gaze upon London (or New York, if you’re already in London) via The Telectroscope:

So how, exactly, to explain the appeal of the outlandish Telectroscope gadget, planted not far from the legs of the Brooklyn Bridge? Here’s a toy, like Francis Drake’s spyglass – studded with the odd, useless lever or meter – dropped amid the warehouses and art galleries of Brooklyn, and rimmed by a crust of rocks and debris, as if it had erupted from under the Hudson River.

Despite an appropriately illustrious Victorian backstory — which includes an abandoned trans-atlantic tunnel — this wild invention is, alas, just a webcam wrapped up within an art installation. I guess it gives the traditional desktop gazing into the Internet stop-motion abyss a veneer of communal respectability.

SimpleViewer, a freebie from Airtight Interactive, is a neat little Flash-based app for showing off your pictures on your very own website. It works well with kitties, but I’m sure just about any photo images would look good on it.
