TechnologyWhile wading through the interwebs on my Google machine earlier this evening, I stumbled across a multi-part (15, I think) blog post by a guy named Shamus Young.  The posts describe his creation of a cityscape built of code.  The end result is a Windows screensaver that builds a city from scratch every time it runs, then tours you around the city.

And, of course, I have already installed the screensaver in my Vista machine.  It’s the first time in years that I’ve actually used a screensaver.

Here’s a YouTube video Shamus put together:
