Global Consciousness screen saver pulls from the stream of consciousness in real time from the 'Global Consciousness'. Instead of having pre-determined text, this displays the live text feed from our website. You can add to the global consciousness by going to this website.

I've been programming for quite a long time. But the lack of creativity is sometimes head-spinning. Hence this. Something fun to develop, something fun to give the world, something potentially creative for me and all of you at the same time.

Does not work. Only shows pictures of different regions of the earth with no messages. Also, the preview pane in System preferences caused a momentary lockup while I tried to force quit once it stopped responding. Needs more work.

Well, after all the earth textures load it starts to render the screen saver.... only.... The texures need much further processing by the system. I have no control over how long the system takes to process the textures once they are loaded. If you give the system 10-20 seconds then it'll start rendering. Clearly you have not given it enough time. You know, some high quality renderings AREN'T instantaneous. Sometimes it takes a while for you system to do work (shocking, eh?). When on an older system (pre-2005) then it could take longer. So i ask... would you like smaller and lower quality textures to feed your need for everything being instant? or would you rather have higher quality with a longer load?

You are part of the instant culture.... Everything my way, RIGHT NOW. (or else you get a low rating [because I have no patience]). You are such a typical of Americans.

A fun little saver. Never gets old. Is there an estimate on how many users post content for it?

Does NOT work on 10.2.8

Always displays "Screen saver 'Global Consciousness' did not load properly. Please select another screen saver.

Error: Can't load bundle"

When selecting the screen saver in the Screen Effects pref pane.

Please fix this guys!!!! The stand alone program is cool but the screen saver would be el mucho coolio.
