Kukla's Korner Hockey

The GIF Maker

from John Matisz at the Toronto Sun,

Of all the rooms in her house, the office is where Stephanie Vail feels most at home.

An iMac desktop computer, paired with a giant flatscreen monitor, is the room's centrepiece, the anchor of her New Hampshire work station.

Since April 15, when the puck dropped on the NHL playoffs, Vail has spent more than 30 hours staring at that giant monitor and two other smaller screens.

She mines the most shareable bits of TV broadcasts and converts them into GIF files -- short for Graphics Interchange Format but better explained as a video clip on loop -- which she posts to Twitter under the handle “@myregularface”.

A relative unknown this time last year, Vail has carved out a notable niche after taking up the hobby two Christmases ago. With an ever-growing audience of nearly 13,000 Twitter followers, she’s quickly become an indispensable member of the online hockey community.
