luanfujun/deep-painterly-harmonization – Code and data for paper "Deep Painterly Harmonization".

Source: github.com

Copying an element from a photo and pasting it into a painting is a challenging task. Applying photo compositing techniques in this context yields subpar results that look like a collage --- and existing painterly stylization algorithms, which are global, perform poorly when applied locally. We address these issues with a dedicated algorithm that carefully determines the local statistics to be transferred. We ensure both spatial and inter-scale statistical consistency and demonstrate that both aspects are key to generating quality results. To cope with the diversity of abstraction levels and types of paintings, we introduce a technique to adjust the parameters of the transfer depending on the painting. We show that our algorithm produces significantly better results than photo compositing or global stylization techniques and that it enables creative painterly edits that would be otherwise difficult to achieve.

CSS SANS.

What CSS can do is changing the layout of web pages, typesetting, adjusting letter spacing and so on. Yet, there was one thing that CSS couldn't do. That is "To design a character itself." And that's why we have created CSS SANS.

It's time to rebuild the web.

(…) we'd have to admit that our current web, with all its flaws, evolved from these simple building blocks. To some extent, then, it's what we wanted—or, perhaps, what we deserved. It's certainly what we accepted, and begs the question: "why wouldn't we accept the same thing again?" Starting over means little if we're destined to repeat the mistakes we've already made.

Peepeth is a decentralized alternative to Twitter (via reddit.com).

It's unstoppable and uncensorable because it runs on the Ethereum blockchain. No company or government controls the data on Peepeth.

Abusing Proxies for DSLs.

Disclaimer: Writing code like this can lead to both the browser and your coworkers hating you. Code like this can be very difficult to test and is going to be slower than just writing code with good old-fashioned functions and sweat. Older browsers will not run this code at all. Consider yourself warned.
