Fascinating stuff on explore-blog:

A Boy and His Atom – to explore the limits of filmmaking, IBM scientists create the world’s smallest movie, made by moving actual atoms frame by frame with IBM’s scanning tunneling microscope.

How far we’ve come in the half-century since Disney’s Our Friend the Atom.

He shows me to a book on the fourth floor and opens it. “Look at this,” he says. It contains a correctional record for Susan Lehew, a state prisoner locked up for larceny in 1876. The intake administrator at the Illinois State Penitentiary wrote at the time that Lehew’s hair was “yaller.” Later, Reinhardt guesses, a supervisor scrawled a weirdly mocking, passive-aggressive question on the paper: “Does the above mean that the girl is red headed, or that her hair is simply a kind of ‘yaller’?” The answer comes wordlessly, in physical form: a lock of Lehew’s blond hair sits to the right, preserved in a plastic sleeve labeled “Susan Lehew #9754A.” “The hair was just sitting in the file when we found it,” Reinhardt says calmly, looking down at it. “You could scan that, I guess, but you miss something….” He struggles to find a word. “You just, I don’t know. You miss something,” he says. “You can’t put that in a PDF.” (via The dream and the myth of the paperless city | The Verge)
