In video news, through a link originally on Rhizome, I discovered Kari Altmann’s Soft 404 yesterday, which aesthetizes the error message a user sees when they click on a link to a dead page. The numbers slowly morph into a Jeremy Blake/Helen Frankenthaler like image, a rather pleasing end to a number no one wants to see.
