This blog is about GIFs.
I see GIFs as a cultural phenomenon and think it will be interesting to spend some thoughts on it. Along with GIFs, other web animation formats such as APNG, WEBM and others will also be the topic of the articles.
Many of the articles will be based on my research about animated GIFs. Furthermore there will be notes, links and maybe other stuff about everything that has to do with Web Animations and the culture that is and was emerging around them.
Please note: I will try to publish some articles in both English and German, but in most of the cases there may be only one version due to laziness:)
