What are the haps my friends

February 8th, 2007: The clever (and cleverly-named) Table of Malcontents pointed me towards Dr. Ben Fry's Distellamap, in which he dumps the source code from NES and 2600 games and adds in little arcs for jumps in the code. As a programmer I can tell you sincerely that this is what the insides of our minds look like. He's got a lot of great visualization stuff on his site: check out Deconstructulator, which plays Super Mario Bros while showing you which graphics are loaded into memory. IT IS RAD.

With HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, you'll reinvent civilization from scratch, no matter what time period you're in. You'll become the single most influential, decisive, and important person ever born. You'll make history...
