it has occurred to me that if google is going to point to me whenever someone looks up the term databending, then if i actually care about promoting the art of bending rather than just being a publicity whore, i should probably assemble a list of links to other noteworthy bending sites. there aren't necessarily a whole lot of them, but i could probably find a half-dozen or more good links to put up (the databenders list being the most obvious example; in fact, i will probably find most of the other links by browsing through the databenders archive).
so coming soon i'll update the image databending gallery to add a couple links sections to the right column of each page. one of those will be the previously mentioned "noteworthy bending links" section. but i will also add another section--blog entries about image databending--so that interested parties can easily find just about everything i've written on the subject (posts to forums and the databenders list aside). hell, i myself had forgotten about some of these posts.
if i were using a blogging service with a "categories" function, this info could be pulled automatically (so long as i had a "bending" category and tagged all such posts with it). but blogger has no such function, so i had to manually go through the blog and find them all. since i was doing that anyway, i decided to post them here in a fit of metablogging:
my first image-bending post!
update to previous
rr8 bent picture gallery
databent posters: my art on your wall
recycle your face
we didn't start the fire
results of the image-bending experiment
and now for something completely tangential
the bollywood bends
big new bent gallery
bring out the GIMP (for image databending)
google-bending for databending
databending images in wordpad
the wordpad effect
so there you have it, in chronological order no less. i'll get to compiling a list of offsite links soon, but that's a bigger project and will require a little more time.¶
