Such pretty sounds! I feel like a lot of people don't think of highly edited organic sounds like this when they think of 'electronic music', which is too bad.

(Oh, and check out that cool soundcloud stream widget. HEYO!)

Seen on a whiteboard at Google yesterday:

"Given a reflexive, commutative but not transitive binary relation ~ on some set, describe an algorithm that finds the min-cardinality partition of the set such that each subset is an equivalence class under ~"

I think I've figured it out, but I might be wrong.

A Google search for "clique cover problem approximability" may or not be of interest to you.

Really enjoyed this lecture on economic inequality and tax policy.

Got a chance to tour the SF Department of Emergency Management building yesterday with +Tim Hwang +Gideon Wald +Miju Han. This picture is of the big rubber "marshmellows" that help base-isolate the building and protect it in the event of a big earthquake.

Some other things I learned:
- Nearly 70% of SFers rent, which can cause problems in a recovery effort—a significant percentage of the economic activity could just disappear quickly
- They're doing some work to help people get to know their neighbors so in the event of a disaster, they have a local support network
- FEMA reimbursement procedures are pretty restrictive, so most emergency departments contract out to one external company not bound by those restrictions to get ad-hoc supplies
- In the event of a serious disaster, SF will mostly get its supplies through the sea

Some photos from an AT&T cell site in San Francisco.

Things I learned:
- SMS on many phones operates over UMTS which occupies a lower freq band of EM, which is why sometimes inside of buildings you can send texts, but apps won't work
- The carriers will often bring out mobile cell sites for big events like the America's Cup in SF
- A bunch of fairly dumb devices like package delivery scanners are still operating on 2G, but 2G is getting phased out more and more aggressively these days
- AT&T has cell sites disguised as trees, boulders, gas station signs and more

Thanks as always to +Tim Hwang for organizing!

+Alex Collins and any other digital music production people might enjoy hearing Four Tet explain his live setup. My favorite part is the way he uses CoolEdit.
 
From the ongoing Red Bull Music Academy - Four Tet explains his live setup, including Ableton Live.

It's also interesting as a matter of understanding what people value in a performance—we want to be not just enthralled by beautiful sounds, but also amazed by the skill of the performer.

Pesto crepe is nice. I like the pay-before eating system. A bit pricey.
