Monday Morning Link Dump: Frozen Bubbles, Phenakistoscopes, Dog Breed Degeneration, and more…

During the course of a week, I often run across interesting links and think “I should share that!” but for one reason or another I never get around to it. Starting today, I will be posting a weekly link dump every Monday containing a selection of links that I have found during the previous week that for whatever reason didn’t get their own post. Enjoy!

1. Photographs of frozen soap bubbles by Angela Kelly

2. Animated gifs of 19th Century phenakistoscopes and other early animations collected by Richard Balzer (see also DickBalzer.com)

3. Side-by-side photos of how purebred dog breeds have degenerated over the last 100 years

4. Listen to music generated by real-time Wikipedia edits (bells = additions, string plucks = subtractions, pitch changes by size of the edit)

5. The Iternet Archive has released web browser based emulators for classic video game consoles (Atari 2600Atari 7800, and more…) For example, play Donkey Kong on the Atari 7800.
