The National Library of Medicine hosts a great web project called Turning the Pages. Using a flash-based interface, they let you read old medical tomes like Andreas Vesalius’s De Humani Corporis Fabrica and Ambroise Paré’s Oeuvres by literally turning the pages. The books are also filled with curator’s notes on the text and illustrations. This is as close as most of us will get to a hands-on experience. Excellent!
The illustration above is from page 559 of De Humani Corporis Fabrica.

I just want to share this excellent little application, that lets you convert markers in Final Cut Pro to cue points in a Flash Video file. Saves a lot of time and makes placing cue points a much more accurate business.
The app is made by John Skidgel, and you can download it for free from his website. Read this post on how to use it. It’s an AIR app, so you’ll need to download Adobe AIR (also free) to make it work.
