Uhhhh? No it isn't. You're right in noting that the little text blurbs move in
and replace the previous blurbs. Barneys.com is far more sexy than that. There's
a whole lot of designs out there based on moving items along a horizontal plane.
While it's flattering that you compare my piece to Joshua Davis' work, the
concept is far more widespread and has been for much longer than barneys.com.

Yes, as a matter of fact, I would take full credit for the design of the virtual
> or are you talking about open sourcing just your sound player?
The sound aspect is what I think people could use the most. When I was building
it I had immense trouble finding clear documentation on how sound works in
flash. As far as design I wouldn't expect someone to keep the design aspects so
much (but wouldn't care if they did).

> curious about clarification
This does bring up a useful thread though. As I don't consider the virtual
roneat a rip-off of barneys.com but you clearly do; in what way do you (or other
readers) consider a piece to be derivative?

Fuck you very much,


jesu, try to give something back... shit, maybe I'll give Barney's a call and
see if they mind if I open source _their_ virtual roneat.
