    I actually don’t understand the GIF-bashing all around the web. I mean, gif-animations in my G+stream (if there are any) are usually not those glittering and blinking cartoons from the 90ies, and also not some shady splatter and shock clips, but rather some interesting pieces of art – since I think, there is a re-discovering of GIF animation as
    1) multi-plattform technology, where you need neither flash nor another plugins to run the animation, and
    2) as a medium of new (or better: very old) genre of looped citations or aphorisms.

    The apprehension (I’ve read last day a lot about it), G+ could become new glitter and kitschy MySpace is unfounded, imho.

    P.S. Sure, maybe I will change my mind after beeing spammed by some cheesy gif-animations, but till now I just re-post them in my streamline, since they are genious.
