Loop Findr

Software developed by Collin Burger can automatically locate loops in video to create perfect GIFs - video embedded below:

Loop Findr is a tool that automatically finds loops in videos so you can turn them into seamless gifs.

Since their creation in 1987, animated GIFs have become one of the most popular means of expression on the Internet. They have evolved into their own artistic medium due to their ability to capture a particular feeling and the format’s portable nature. Loop Findr seeks to usher in a new era of seamless GIFs created from loops found in the videos the populate the Internet. Loop Findr is a tool that automatically finds these loops so users can turn them into GIFs that can then be shared all over the Web.

You can find out more background about the project here

There is also a loopfindr Tumblr blog which has examples and links to download the software (Mac only) here

Allan Savory: How to green the world’s deserts and reverse climate change

Not at all what I expected. For just over half his talk, Savory discusses the issue of desertification, which many of you are familiar with. He (like many others) makes the case for restoring these deserts.

Then, in the last six minutes, he completely blows everyone’s minds. You just gotta see it.

Obama: ‘We Will Find Out Who Did This’

“We don’t know who did this or why. And people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts,” Obama said. “But make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. And we will find out who did this, we’ll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice.”
