Loop du jour: Images of an Ever Changing China

Starting today, once per day, I’m going to select a loop that I think is really cool. Here’s the first one.
Images of an Ever Changing China. Thirty eight photos that illustrate how fast China is changing.

    When I was installing filmloop (for OS X of course) I clicked on the privacy policy, but it didn’t render in Firefox, I just got a blank screen. It only rendered after I had clicked to accept after entering my email and address and such. How can a product only show you its privacy policy after you have agreed to it? I hope this is fixed before the final version is fixed, because as it stands the user is forced to accept having newsletters and product announcements emailed to them without knowing it.

    This is a bug all right. Trust me, there’s no spam coming at you if you accept.

    Fair enough. I figured it was probably a bug, but it is an especially irritating one. Great photoset by the way.

    Hi Guy,
    How about running the loop on your blog? I want to see a sample before grabbing it for my desktop.

    Hi Mr. Kawasaki,
    I am a Chinese. I think your filmloop is very cool and interesting.
    Best Regards,

    Okay Guy, no offence but don’t you think it’s troublesome that you have to download a program just to view pictures?
    I mean, that’s why there’s Flickr and other image sharing sites that don’t require you to download anything before you can view the pictures.

    I’m actually all for non JavaScript/AJAX/PHP etc solutions for web apps, but I’d like to see it a bit more integrated. Say a flash-player like plugin so that you could embed it into a page or if you pop up a new window it at least appears to be running in the browser. It just feels so 199x to launch a helper app to view content.

    Oskar and Brian,
    The hard part will be getting Getty Images to put their photos into Flickr or a Flash player. 🙂

    Great idea to post cool loops on your blog. Why don’t you create a Filmloop blog in order to do that. I bet you it will be a success because people don’t have time to browse over Filmloop’s web page in order to search for good loops.

    I see that many of us coming from different countries (origin by or living in)What about to publish filmloop of our countries to share with this community?

    I don’t want to download another browser…I already have one. Imagine if every company developed their own browser for their own proprietary content formats. That would really suck.

    Great Loop….! I’m an American living in Shenzhen China for the past two years and have traveled throughout China many years before that and can attest to the absolutely frenetic pace of change in this city. New malls pop up by the day, factories by week, and new apartment complexes seem to pop up like mushrooms when you’re not watching…but pollution is rampant and business ethics are not necessarilly the norm…it’s definitely an interesting time to be here…..
