You will feel a pang of recognition as you watch the process of filling a progress bar. This is what I will think of next time a YouTube video loads with fits and starts, but at least this animation by French artist Vincent Broquaire doesn't break down completely and never start again like some videos. That may be because it's on vimeo, which at least has some consistency in its loading progression. But I shouldn't complain: if I downloaded software or anything more complicated than the short videos or simple text I work with every day, it could be a lot worse. -via Metafilter
