An anonymous activist is getting potholes fixed faster by drawing penises around them.

Best bit: He calls himself "Wanksy"

Weirdest bit: Somehow, ignoring crumbling infrastructure is "meh", while crudely drawn penises are to be dealt with immediately. Priorities, people.

(NSFW: Crudely drawn penises, unpixelated)
The city of Manchester can ignore its residents, but thanks to Wanksy, it can't ignore the one-eyed monster.

+Cindy Brown: Copyhorsed.  Cats might not have sufficiently large dicks.

An issue with marking bridges is, bridges are more likely to have cameras.

For years I've been discussing issues over unredacted body camera videos potentially showing up on YouTube. This is a gigantic issue, because -- remember -- police are often inside innocent persons' homes at those persons' times of most vulnerability -- sick, naked, injured, and more -- both adults and children. Such videos cannot be made fodder for public voyeurism (or worse, monetization). Also, note that rules are often missing regarding how long such video can be retained when no crimes are involved, or how such video may be used for future investigative purposes. These are all gigantic and complex issues.
While some departments cite privacy concerns or the administrative burden of making the videos available to the public, the Seattle police post everything.

I love that this pasteup above an art installation in s park in Montmartre is continually maintained by the artist.

This was in our neighborhood park when we first moved to Paris.

Moonrise Through Mauna Kea's Shadow
Image Credit & Copyright: Michael Connelley (U. Hawaii)
http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap150503.html

How can the Moon rise through a mountain? It cannot -- what was photographed here is a moonrise through the shadow of a large volcano. The volcano is Mauna Kea, Hawai'i, USA, a frequent spot for spectacular photographs since it is arguably the premier observing location on planet Earth. The Sun has just set in the opposite direction, behind the camera. Additionally, the Moon has just passed full phase -- were it precisely at full phase it would rise, possibly eclipsed, at the very peak of the shadow. The Moon is actually rising in the triangular shadow cone of the volcano, a corridor of darkness that tapers off in the distance like converging train tracks. The Moon is too large and too far away to be affected by the shadow of the volcano. Refraction of moonlight through the Earth's atmosphere makes the Moon appear slightly oval. Cinder cones from old volcanic eruptions are visible in the foreground.

On a whim, an artist decided to "liberate" an anonymous girl depicted in an Ingres painting at the Louvre and paste it up on the street. With that single act, people in 18 cities have now "freed" characters from master paintings and turned them into acts of street art.

Shopping for food at the local Carrefour on Sunday I was utterly amazed to stumble upon this in the meager English  book selection. I couldn't resist. I've only flicked through it so far and read the first few pages, but it looks like the perfect systemless GoT RPG supplement if you want to play in the past of the books.

Lost in the Bay Area
Introduction
Recovering from returning to the US after a year in Paris..   Due to a wonderful set of opportunities, I'm was able to live in Paris for a year with my wife and daughter.  It was a great adventure.

I like photography, cars, motorcycles, computers, acoustics/audio, and history.  I also find socioeconomic classes fascinating (and an interesting dichotomy from social classes).

Professionally, I connect lots of little things to big things (Internet of Things).

A note to commercial pages:  If you circle me, without me first establishing some sort of relationship (or communication) with you, I'm very likely to block you, and report you for unwanted commercial spam.
