On the spur of the moment

Using QuickTime VR, panoramas.dk has collected immersive images of new year’s eve 2006 in over 15 cities across the globe. I particularly like Times Square; there’s so much going on and if you look up you can see the ticker-tape falling (I don’t think I’m allowed to say ‘confetti’). What a brilliant moment to record for posterity and a wonderful application of a technology I rarely see. Looking at the detail, I also think the contrast is pretty stark between some of the societies documented here. Londoners (of which I was one) all lined up in the cold! Also, for those interested, in Taipei Taiwan 2 you’ll see what look like American brands. More evidence, if any is needed, of cultural globalisation.
