fyi [links, feb 2016]

Some more or less recent stuff, focussed on GIFs. Or other web animations. Or something else loosely connected to that.

There is now a GIF search feature on Twitter.

After the analysis of Hillary Clintons GIFability some time ago, here are two articles about how GIFs seem to establish as a political campaign tactic for Donald Trump: one at The New York Times and one at Inverse .

In some months there are a ton of links, but this isn’t one of these months. So, to present you at least a third link, I picked ”something completely different“, but nonetheless an interesting example of creative GIF appropriation: Alfa-kinetix is a constructed alphabet that makes use of animations, and therefore is depicted by GIFs (at least at the Omniglot website).
