Uzu on Ars Technica

I’d like to thank Jeff Smykil over at ars technica for a great article on Uzu. I got to speak with Jeff for a couple of hours over IM.  He ended up comparing me to Professor Frink from The Simpsons – I approve this message.

Here’s a quote from the article:

“In talking to Smith, I felt what I imagine the kindergartners at Springfield Elementary School on The Simpsons felt when Professor Frink became the substitute teacher during the teachers’ strike. They wanted to understand how the tiny plastic balls shot around the toy vacuum cleaner as it zoomed around the room, but, alas, Frink’s diagrams and explanations were too much for them to comprehend. I came out of my talk with Smith understanding more or less a fragment of what we talked about, but like the aforementioned kindergartners, I knew that in the end, despite my lack of comprehension, that toy vacuum was fun.”

  1. Thanks so much for this app – an endless source of fun.

    One feature that would be appreciated is a way to set the default startup colours.
