This is the programmable LED sign up near the lounge area of the LJ offices. I demand that this be made web programmable post haste. I know Cyan has done such a thing. LJ LED graffiti board pronto! Make it so!

This is the LJ Mood orb which tells the current prevalent mood across LJ. It was sad so we theorized that it was all the lonely dorks sitting home on a saturday night alone posting about cutting.

revmischa holding the now happy lj mood light. possibly because of all those dorks who went out throwing up a quick post about their imminently successful 1-night-stand?

aspire to leverage security flaws. that's what your luck says to me.
What's the story behind this? Was this tour some kind of peace offering / keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer kind of thing?
does the mood thing actually jack into the predominant mood on the system?
wow that's pretty cool, i guess it makes sense you can build a programmable mood light...it...it...would just involve having to talk to EE's.
For people who don't want to talk to EE's and have US$150 in disposable income, I wrote some python code to stalk the LJ recent posts RSS feed and then ditto it's findings to an Ambient Orb amongst other things.

I don't have an A.O., so I don't know if it works.
dude that is pretty sweet. what if we built our own ambient orb? i mean its just a bunch of LEDS in a opaque plastic ball right?
Yea, it's something like that. If you built your own though, you could have much finer colour control too. The problem is, I don't really know how to control something like that over USB - qdot is trying to explain it to me when we're both not busy.
