    It’s not all about sports, i promise. It is, however, one of the best uses of hypertext for storytelling i’ve seen in a long, long time. I don’t want to spoil it, so go read it for yourself!

    Het gaat niet allemaal over sport, beloofd — maar het is wél een van de beste toepassingen van hypertekst voor verhalen die ik in lange tijd heb gezien. Ik wil het niet bederven, dus ga het zelf maar lezen!

          One of the first documented pranks on the oft-tomfooled Astor Place Cube in Man­hat­tan.

          This site hasn’t been updated in almost a decade now — things like that always make me think, who’s paying to keep the lights on? Feels like it might not be long for this world.

          Een van de eerste gedocumenteerde streken op de vaak geprikte Astor Place-kubus in Man­hat­tan.

          Deze site is al bijna tien jaar niet meer bijgewerkt — zulke dingen doen me altijd denken, wie betaalt er om de lichten aan te laten? Het voelt alsof het misschien niet lang meer zal duren.

              Een uitgebreide persoonlijke webindex verpakt in de vage vorm van een huis — maar, eh, een van die Zweinsteinhuizen waar de kamers steeds achter je veranderen en je niet precíés zeker bent hoe het allemaal in de buitenkant past.

                                          David J. Peterson is probably the closest thing the field of conlang­ing has to a celebrity, having done things as high-profile as Game of Thrones’ Dothraki. This makes it all the more surprising that he has a wonderful little hand-coded website for his other conlang­ing projects. Those aren’t even my favourite part, though: that honour goes to the Smiley Awards, an annual award given to a language that makes [him] smile.

                                          Inspiration: Mr. Peterson’s site was the thing that inspired me to have an HTML presence to begin with; the earliest design of this very site was copied from his. (I’ll link an image when i get around to finding one…)

He’s a major contributor to the sprawling online alternate history setting Ill Be­thi­sad, the international Slavic language Interslavic, and devised a neat system to classify conlangs (NL) in the absence of any natural language families in which they can be grouped. His website was one of the things that inspired me to make this little site in the first place!

Very noticeably inspired by the Geocities era of web design, with weird branching paths stretching throughout; it’s like exploring an actual museum.

Also available as a wallpaper for your phone.

Ook verkrijgbaar als achtergrond voor je telefoon.
