How has MetaFilter stayed relevant? Would you have done anything differently?
The jury’s still out on the site’s relevance :). I don’t know exactly what keeps the site around or keeps people coming back, but I feel like it was settling on some simple core principles early on to make a site of interesting stuff and have interesting people on it and growing it very slowly paid off in the long run. There’s not a lot I would have done differently, I kind of like how it has played out for the last 13 years.
When was the first time you looked at porn on the internet, and what was it?
“We’ve done a number of studies to show that light levels that you would be normally exposed to in the home in the evening, for example from a bedside lamp, are very easily capable of shifting the body clock,” Dr. Lockley said.
Lockley said blue wavelengths, in particular, the kind emitted by energy efficient light bulbs and various electronics, can be the most disruptive.
“And yet now-a-days it seems that blue is the color du jour,” said Dr. Nathaniel Watson of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
In addition, studies have linked blue light to depression, diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular problems.
Most work suggests that the peak spectral sensitivity of the receptor is between 460 and 484 nm. Lockley et al. in 2003 showed that 460 nm (violet) wavelengths of light suppress melatonin twice as much as 555 nm (green) light, the peak sensitivity of the photopic visual system. In work by Zaidi, Lockley and co-authors using a rodless, coneless human, it was found that what consciously led to light perception was a very intense 481 nm stimulus; this means that the receptor in visual terms enables some rudimentary vision maximally for blue light.
I posted over on the other IGTM torrents and thought I'd pop in here as well...
My name is James Swirsky - I’m one of the two people who made Indie Game: The Movie. Myself and Lisanne Pajot spent our last two years working on this film. We kept a pretty active blog about the production of the film on our site (www.indiegamethemovie.com).
We are a two person team, making this film completely independently. And we want to keep on making films, just like this one, for people to enjoy.
If you like the movie, consider purchasing it over on iTunes, Steam or completely DRM-Free (in a variety of encodes) directly from us over at Indie Game: The Movie. You can also get a copy to gift to a friend if you’d like to.
Thanks for taking an interest in our film.
Co-director/Maker of Indie Game: The Movie
