My sister tweeted this article to me earlier today on the motivation behind climate change denialists. The article mentions a program airing tonight on ABC television titled I can change your mind about… Climate, it includes a clip that didnt make the final cut; Im choosing to share said clip because too many Aussies have their heads in the sand on the topic of climate change.
Not being one to television very often Im hoping to catch the program on iView…

I was sent a screen grab of a 3D laser scan from a colleague, he just wanted the pic on the web. I though ‘well someone paid a lot of money to have this laser scan done, we can do better than place a screen grab of it online’ and inquired about the actual 3D file in the hope it was of a 3d format I had experience with..
My first thought was to plonk the file into Flash and just add some controls, tho Flash requires a browser plug-in and so I started looking into webGL. The only downside with webGL is IE support (tho there is a plug-in), so Its a toss up between 3-rd party plugin or no IE. Looking at analytics for the DEC web will answere whats more suited for my “market”.
Not having a licence for Max here at work (and not likley to get one) I had to make use of Blender, which is perfectly fine for what I want. An engineer friend offered use of his CAD workstation but I declined for wanting to do this with tools at hand. There is a script on google code that adds export to WebGL functionality…

I just recently worked on the DEC education portal, which was to conglomerate the handfull of community education sites; Ribbons of Blue, Airwatch and WasteWise, into one web portal. Some irony here that would be missed by most readers (Discourse of Deranged readers may remember!), that is Ribbons of Blue being a Swan River Trust initative, SRT being a former employer of mine–and when I was employed by the Trust, I was not allowed to work on their site.
UPDATE: this is the view from my office:
A view money just cant buy
and to give you an example of how close to the foreshore Cygnet Hall is:
