Watching a 3D flyover of this year's Tour de France is surprisingly entertaining.

Care about open access, and think that Harvard is a good place? Job for you...
 
Harvard is hiring a senior developer for its institutional repository.

Please spread the word and help us find some terrific people.

"As part of the Harvard Library's Office for Scholarly Communication team of librarians, scholars, and software engineers, you will work on the cutting edge of the open access movement to make academic research produced at Harvard and elsewhere available to anyone, throughout the world, free of charge. As a member of Library Technology Services, you may collaborate with library and IT staff across the university to deliver best of breed library services for research, teaching, and learning....

Primary Responsibilities: Develop and administer a digital repository. Evaluate both existing and emerging repository software for future development. Take ownership of new open access projects. Work closely with librarians, scholars, and technologists across institutional boundaries. Both librarians with programming experience and software engineers with a library background are welcome to apply. We are less concerned about specific technologies than about finding a team player who cares deeply about what we do. But to give you a taste of the technologies we are currently using or experimenting with, see the lists of "qualifications" below. It’s OK if you are missing a few buzzwords – as long as you can demonstrate the interest and ability to learn them (and others) as required. Please Note: This is a two year term-limited position...[with] the possibility of renewal, contingent on funding, university priorities and satisfactory job performance...."

First time I've ever joined an explicit pyramid scheme, but I've spent a bunch of time recently investigating electric bikes, and I was taken with this one. Strong innovation+design ethic, reliable company, and a e-bike that is light weight and doesn't need all that license plate rubbish (restricted to assistance up to 25 kph only). There's still a decent pre-order saving of about 700 EUR + another 100 EUR with the promo code vanmoof100.

And yes, I get a saving if you use this link to take a peek and eventually  end up ordering:

The electric bike that's smart, sleek and superpowered

Anaconda and Hadoop --- a story of the journey and where we are now.
My first real experience with cluster computing came in 1999 during my graduate school days at the Mayo Clinic.  These were wonderful times.   My advisor was Dr. James Greenleaf .   He was very patient with allowing me to pester a bunch of IT professionals ...
