week 83

– I finished the data classification part of my thesis.  I would not wish repetitive stress on my worst enemy.

– The VARIATIONS radio series, by Jon Leidecker, is amazing.  It’s about the history of collage in music, starting with Ives and going through all sorts of brilliant obscurities on the way to now.  Well recommended.

Project Spark looks like one of those amazing Microsoft Research things that never really ends up going anywhere – but it really does look amazing.

– And, I need to get all ecological on you:  it would only cost $50 billion to stop producing coal in the US, forever.  And, Paris has been banning half of its cars from the road in order to keep smog down.  Welcome to the future.
