The Internet As It Was In 1996

Uploaded on Dec 29, 2011
Transferred from a VHS video tape, this 1996 video shows how to use a PC and how to use the PC to access the new "world wide web." I had my first website that year. It was a one pager which got an average of one visit per day, which wasn't too bad back then. I'm guessing the average 1st grader knows more about using a PC and the internet than this professional instructional video is teaching. You won't believe how backwards the state of PC and internet use 15 years will seem to you as you watch.

Minecraft isn't just a game. It's an art form.

Published on Feb 6, 2017
Minecraft maps are unique worlds, but they can also be an art form.

Thanks to Blockworks for sharing their process: http://blockworksmc.com/

The images come from Beautiful Minecraft: https://www.nostarch.com/beautifulmin...

We used a wide range of maps in this video. In addition to maps you can find on Blockworks' website, you can explore some of the maps we used here:

Explore the VoxAlmaworld we made (nothing happens beyond the main island, and the construction is nothing to stare at. It's like how you put a 5-year-old's artwork on the fridge: it's terrible, but they tried their best): http://bit.ly/2kQR3I4
