I don’t think I’ve seen as cool an animation as this. It’s pretty nifty and all done on a whiteboard.

Java goes GPL!

Just seen this on slashdot. Sun is releasing JAVA under the GPL.

Certainly makes me a lot more amenable to Java which I have historically been a bit sceptical about. Means I will have to learn a bit more about Classes and the likes 😦

They have used this of publicly available Flickr images.

The process is known as ALIPR (Automatic Linguistic Indexing of Pictures).
