Awesome Sauce gifsockets!!!11 (Vimeo video). Using clojure to create a streaming animated GIF that sends varying text strings to the browser.

At the github page for gifsockets they note:

"This library is the websockets of the '90s" - Somebody at Hacker News.

Especially amusing 'cause I just started playing with Meteor server and real-time web stuff.

While kewl, something about streaming text in a gif makes my skin crawl.
