Hi, all. I am the blog post author, blown away by the attention this 1-day hack is getting! I am the author of Findings, a lab notebook app for scientists. Check it out and show it to others: http://findingsapp.com

I also created this page: http://asciimage.org, with my friend @mz2. There is a simple editor as well called ASCIImage Super Studio.

And check out Monodraw, I love it!! http://monodraw.helftone.com

Really cool concept. Well done.

I didn't quite understand how the single points worked. It seemed to me that your definition for, say, 3 single points was the same as a triangle. How does it know which is which? Or do the curves have to be closed?

When you skip a character, you move on to next shape.

So, 1-2-3 5-6-7 = 2 triangles

But 1 3 5 = 3 points

I think I was thrown off by the example which used 1,1,1,1 for the sphere and 2, 3 to represent isolated points. But they're consecutive. Unless I'm missing something?

ah, damn, you're right!


Ah ha, now it makes sense. Thanks :-)
