Tiny tomorrow @ MIT Museum

Tomorrow at 6 pm Brent and I will show the Tiny Icon Factory at the Delight by Design show in the MIT Museum. We will open the site again, show some animations and give away some stickers. It has been a good opportunity to look at them and start figuring out interesting ways to get them organized. I find it very surprising how creative people have been when given just 169 squares of black and white and a total absence of individual authorship. Looking at all this icons has been a very pleasant experience.

A rough sample of a sequence of icons is here.

The following pictures feature some blown-up renders of some sample icons with their names and ids. The names were given to them by their creators, and their ids were given to them by Rails, when written as binary strings into a database table.
