Word on Wednesday: A Week’s Finds

I read a lot of articles on the internet.  In fact, the last book I read was a re-read of Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird.  Not surprisingly it was an article that reminded me of how that book inspired me to write more.

Food Porn: The World’s Newest Obsession »

Food Porn:  The World’s Newest Obsession

I live  in Foodie-Ville. Sonoma County, California is known for its access to the world's most beautiful, biodynamic, Demeter-approved, organic, humanely-produced, preciously prepared and ingested culinary perfection.  So I'm accustomed to seeing lots of social media food porn. But really, how many pictures can we take of pizza, pasta, [...]

Robotic Seagull Attracts an Actual Flock of Seagulls

Not sure what to make of this video of a robotic seagull which is powered simply by the motion of its wings.  The robot attracted an actual flock of seagulls during a test flight at TEDGlobal 2011, the annual five-day technology conference in Edinburgh, Scotland.  With obvious applications for policing and spying, the video of this device [...]

Even after all this time, I'm still amazed at the long tail, and how likeminds find each other.   I was playing around with Google+, and came upon Jer Thorp, who is the data artist in residence at The New York Times.  As I clicked around, I came across an award-winning project he did a number of years ago called Petals, which I remembered [...]
