Crediting never gives permission to use anything. If the creator does not say anything in the description, or does not provide a creative commons (CC) or similar license, you need to reach the creator, tell about your usage and obtain a written permission. If you can't get this permission, you cannot use that work. If you use the videos for a portfolio, ...

You need to check the license for the clip. If they are not Creative Commons licensed then it's probably a good idea to get in touch with the creator for permission. If you've not started on anything though it is going to be easier to just pick CC licensed work from the start (of which there is plenty). You can also search by license on Vimeo in the ...

There is a program called PhonoPaper made by a Russian group. It is essentially a graphical representation of sound that can be read by a camera and specific software. Quite cool, if somewhat novel. http://warmplace.ru/soft/phonopaper/ There is possibly some way of reading a sonograph image back into sound. Perhaps look into SSTV technology too which is ...

There was a thread about it on the C74 forums who had the same problem. http://cycling74.com/forums/topic/spam-becoming-a-problem-on-forum/ Some interesting ideas in there. Perhaps it depends on how customisable the forum software is. How about if a post was marked as spam by 3 users with 1000+ reputation it would be immediately trashed. Moderating all ...

Actually, a good picture CAPTCHA is very solid. The only way a robot/program could interpret a good picture CAPTCHA is using character recognition. Now, computer vision simply isn't that advanced and likely never will be (the logic would be extremely complex). The one used here might be too simple (not messed up enough) or it's not requested every single ...

Another favorite is Box of Toys Audio. http://www.boxoftoysaudio.com I love the flat, boxy visual style that ties back to their name, but I think their text is approaching too small. Great photography and colors. Welcoming landing page with clear selections to bring users further into the site. speed - 4, would be a 5 but the "Archive" section chugs hard ...
