SCALED nano'clock watch prototype v2015-03-17

SCALED Nano’clock prototype for “wearable” 4:5 screens at 544 x 680 pixels, 72ppi. Licensed under Fauxpen Source Attribution 1.0 Unported License.

When Scribblers Media introduced the web-based Global Nano’clock beta last July, we knew it would be a major game-changer in extra-ultra-super-exact timekeeping (sorry, United States Naval Observatory master clock-keepers). Just as we knew our breakthrough efforts would be quickly surpassed by even greater magnitudes of chronometric accuracy. Indeed, nowadays the original Nano’clock’s 1/ten-to-the-negative-80th-power second precision seems downright loosey-goosey compared to that of some of the best time pieces out there. (Which are now well into the “point hundreds of zeroes” fraction of a second. (And we understand that today there are designs on drawing boards to take that staggering figure to into the thousands of decimal points! (Imagine!)))

We scribblers were only too happy to do our part in advancing the science of modern nano-level timekeeping. Likewise, we were very pleased to pass that torch to the next generation of nano-clocksmiths. Frankly, we had no plans to get back in the game. Until last week’s Apple Watch announcement. We immediately realized the future of nano-chronometry is wearable.

We felt the call. Once again, we were scribblers on a mission.

What ev. Above is Scribblers Media’s latest Nano’clock prototype (Beta v2015-03-17). It’s in the standard 4:5 aspect ratio screen size. Obviously, it has a way to go to be readable for Apple Watch’s smaller 277 pixel x 340 pixel (38mm model) and 312×390 (42mm) screens. (Working on it, working on it! As always, suggestions welcome.) Please stay tuned!


 

… and the much esteemed, highly coveted, very, very prestigous “2015 Difference Maker” award goes to …

Scribblers Media is proud as Punch to report that our 2014-2015 Geometrical Chromatics Team has been awarded the Twenty Fifteen Difference Maker prize! This much esteemed (not to mention, highly coveted and very, very prestigious) award is given annually by the universally renowned (if somewhat fictitious) No duh Vinci Institute to “the person or group who has exhibited somewhat interesting instructional design utilizing at least three colors and displays objects aligned in a more-or-less mathematically exact arrangement–AND correctly fills out the nomination form and pays the requisite registration fee.”

The actual body of work sited for this year’s award is Scribblers Media’s Primordial Matrix Series One <hyperlinks below> In keeping with long-standing No duh Vinci tradition, each project contributor received the double-sided Difference Maker commemorative badge. <see image above>

The Difference Maker badge itself, is, to be sure, among the many works featured in the series. Various vector and bitmap “prime differentials” as the badge files are sometimes called, can be found in the Series One pubic online file shares.

Likewise, various iterations of “Primordial Matrix” design elements (e.g., blocks, blends, warps, hues, shades, combinations, arrangements, checkerboards, etc.) can be found elsewhere on the Net. Nearby, in fact. (At most a few quick clicks/taps/swipes from this very blog page.). And don’t be surprised to see similar “blocks, blends, warps and chex” prominently displayed in next edition of scribblers-dot-com.

So in other words,. if you’d like to check out the matrices and such, they shouldn’t be too hard to find. And if not so inclined, well, they’re easy enough to ignore. (Though if that’s the case, we hope you’ll give them another look–they may grow on you. Really–we didn’t take to them at first either!)

And this too …
The Difference Maker prize always offers a generous financial bounty. Fabulously generous, in fact. Specifically, this year’s lucky, lucky recipients need only show the 2015 badge (and, of course, make customary contribution of a Federal Reserve note) to receive an absolutely FREE bag of fries from the Dollar Menu at over 13,000 participating McDonald’s restaurants across America. (So skeptical readers may now appreciate why we claim–even aside from all the universal honor, glory, acclamation, adulation, recognition and all-around prestige–the award is so highly coveted.)
