Yonatan Zunger originally shared to Brief Dispatches:
 
A group of researchers has built a way to mine the giant corpora of pictures people have posted publicly (on sites like Picasa and Flickr) and build time-lapse images of landmarks. This involves huge technical challenges of identifying landmarks, building 3D models of them, stabilizing the images, and normalizing the motion and lighting -- and so far, they've managed to find over 20,000 such images, showing everything from changing seasons, to building construction, to moving glaciers.

They've made a video showing off their favorites: https://youtu.be/wptzVm0tngc. You can read the paper at http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/timelapse/ , and hopefully they'll soon have a way to see all their results.

Well, this is some good news for Freeport-McMoRan and for the town I live in, considering how large of an employer they are in the region.  This comes after Freeport reported a ~$3B USD loss in their 4th quarter last year.

I've also noticed copper prices rising.

How to Use LinkedIn to Become a Networking Superstar
As the Internet buzzes with social media activity, knowing where to network can be a challenge.

While +LinkedIn is still viewed by many as an online resume (huge mistake btw!) – it lives at the top of my list for professional networking.

Not spending any time on LinkedIn? Let me tell you why you should.

While Google Plus, Facebook, Twitter and other social sites build familiarity and awareness for your personal brand, LinkedIn is unique in its business focus. LinkedIn is a society designed to connect business professionals, marketers and vendors interested in building a community.

And if you're building a business, you need a community of people that know, like and trust you!

Whether you’re looking for B2B or B2C connections, LinkedIn is the place to be, so let's get you networking!

Tips include expert advice from +Mike Allton, +Melonie Dodaro +Peg Fitzpatrick and more!

Read it here and PIN it for later: http://rebekahradice.com/use-linkedin-to-become-a-networking-superstar/

Showed this to my dad this morning and he, being a truck driver, said, "I guess it's time for me to retire." 😝
Yonatan Zunger originally shared to Today I Learned::
 
The first road-legal self-driving truck has been issued a license plate by the state of Nevada. The vehicle is "NHTSA level 3" certified, which means that it can drive itself, but a driver is required to be able to take over control if the need arises. (Level 4, at which nothing has yet been certified, can operate completely autonomously, without any humans paying attention at all)

Daimler (which owns Freightliner) is pitching this as a solution for driver drowsiness, which is a significant issue for truck drivers. Going forward, this is likely to be an important milestone in getting autonomous transport into our day-to-day world.
The autonomous big rig is meant to reduce driver drowsiness, and thus accidents.

It was sometime in 2005 and I was sitting to my laptop on campus, browsing the iTunes store.  On this particular day, iTunes had suggested that I might be interested in the song "Different" by +Acceptance.  So, I downloaded the song and took a quick listen before heading home.  My first thought was that the song could grow on me and it did.

While the song might be wanting a relationship to be different in some ways, as Vena suggests from this interview, for me, the song took on a different meaning (the beauty of interpretation).  For me, the song always represented a sense of dissatisfaction with yourself at the present moment and wanting to change, to be a better person and who knows, this change could be all you needed and it does not necessarily need to include a relationship with someone else.  If anything, the ending line, "everything you would change in me", could be a statement to yourself.

There's a part in the lyric that always stood out to me and it's toward the end: 

I'm taking a chance,
this could be different.
this could be all I'm waiting for.

I wanted to see something that's different, 
something you said would change in me.
Wanted to be anything different,
everything you would change in me.

I'm glad the band is back together and am looking forward to any new songs they wish to make.




AP (+Alternative Press ): "Jason, can you talk about the meaning of 'Different?'"

Vena: "The concept behind the record was to have a commentary on a bunch of different aspects of love, if you will. Actually, this idea of love being this thing you can be chasing in different ways...it's about someone telling somebody that they're in a relationship with that they want it to be different. They want to change whatever these things may be for the other person. It's just a commentary on someone going on this drive and replaying these issues that came up, and singing or talking back to himself, 'Hey, I should change. I should do these things.'"

Introduction
"There was no question about it: Tegularius was a willful, moody person who refused to fit into his society. Every so often he would display the liveliness of his intellect. When highly stimulated he could be entrancing; his mordant wit sparkled and he overwhelmed everyone with the audacity and richness of his sometimes somber inspirations. But basically he was incurable, for he did not want to be cured; he cared nothing for co-ordination and a place in the scheme of things. He loved nothing but his freedom, his perpetual student status, and preferred spending his whole life as the unpredictable and obstinate loner, the gifted fool and nihilist, to following the path of subordination to the hierarchy and thus attaining peace. He cared nothing for peace, had no regard for the hierarchy, hardly minded reproof and isolation. Certainly he was a most inconvenient and indigestible component in a community whose idea was harmony and orderliness. But because of this very troublesomeness and indigestibility he was, in the midst of such a limpid and prearranged little world, a constant source of vital unrest, a reproach, an admonition and warning, a spur to new, bold, forbidden, intrepid ideas, an unruly, stubborn sheep in the herd. And, to our mind, this was the very reason his friend cherished him."
