Great Screen Saver
« on: November 12, 2003, 07:59:03 am »

I came across a really good screen saver, appropriately titled "Philosophy of Liberty" which I want to share with you.  Please right click HERE to download it.

Maybe the moderators would be kind enough to make this a sticky for a few days?

OK, for a few days,   I really like this screen saver, not only because it is so very good, but because back when it first came about, I e-mailed the guys who made it (Ken Schoolland and Kerry Pearson ) and suggested a very minor improvement and they immediately added it.  So I feel a little bit of pride in this production every time I see it.  
I later learned that Ken Schoolland is a relatively famous libertarian author, but he may have made his greatest mark in the world by his 'inspired' ideas for this this amazing flash animation!

That is indeed a great screen saver.  I've sent it to several people, and some of them thought it was a bit pedantic, but interesting.  

One person told me it was offensive, but she wouldn't tell me what she objected to.

I sent it to a couple other people, who did also agree it was pedantic.  Then I discovered why - It's meant as an accompaniment to a children's book!

It's called "The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible", and it seems like a Libertarian book for kids.  Kind of interesting.  If you click on the "Multimedia" link, you can get to the flash movie version of that screen saver.

You can also see other works of the artist of the movie here:

I used to hang out in the same cyber-circles as Lux a few years ago, so when I first saw the POL animation I wrote him to see if he might consider doing something like that for the FSP. I suggested Kerry maybe try something like a visual interpetation of Steve Cobb's The First Dimension of Association article to illustrate the value of "hanging together rather than separately". Perhaps if the board can come up with a specific work that will translate effectively to Flash we can see if Kerry has the free time to do it. I might be able to line up the former Creative Director of www.LiquidGeneration.com for flash work as well if Kerry is too busy.
