Beautiful Site Tells a Haunting Story

An unknown man travels 200 miles to end his life near the top of an English mountain. British police retrace his steps, but the mystery only deepens.

This BBC story is compelling for two reasons: the enigmatic story itself, and the elegant parallax-scrolling site layout. I hope for a part 2 someday, when more answers are found.

Experience the story here:

My First Live Rock Show in... Too Long

From the Shameless Self-Promotion Department: I will be performing this Saturday night, May 28th, with the noteworthy Central Ohio prog-rock project Spradling Carter Arnold.

I don't talk about it much on Google+, but in my after-hours life I am a session musician. With SCA, I'll be handling acoustic guitar, keyboards, and vocals.

If you're in town and you're even a little interested in prog rock, check us out at the King Avenue 5 in Columbus for the "Metal Man" CD Release party. (Tip: it's not a metal album.)

Tickets are $10 at the door. Advance tix are $7, available online at Square (Mention 'Eric' in the optional instructions):

36 Years Ago Today: Mount St. Helens

A&E's "Minute by Minute" had a pretty good show featuring the survivors of Mount St. Helens. Incredible that anyone survived inside the red zone.

Watch it here:

Open Data Brought A Halt To Bad NYPD Tickets

"Imagine a city where all agencies embrace this sort of analysis instead of deflect and hide from it." -Ben Wellington

+Ben Wellington was combing through ticketing data made available by NYC's surprising open data initiative when he found a curious pattern: some of the spots with the highest number of tickets were legal parking spots.

This article is a short dive into the process he followed to mine the data patterns and bring it to the NYPD. Hurray for open data!

The alien world completes one orbit every 900,000 years or so.
A huge alien world orbits 600 billion miles (1 trillion kilometers) from its host star, making its planetary system the most widely separated one known, a new study reports.

Yep, Luxury Tanks are a Thing Now

Not sure how "ready for market" this machine is yet, as some of the footage appears to be CG. But I guess luxury tanks really shouldn't be a surprise.

What Is the Metal Man Album All About?

The Columbus Dispatch had a detailed article about tomorrow night's Spradling Carter Arnold CD Release party at King Avenue 5 in Columbus. I'll be playing guitar with them - just not the guitar in the photo ;)

This photo was taken with... an Android Nexus. Respect.
 
Today on the blog... this photo was taken with my Android Nexus 6P and it was an auto-stitched Panorama! I took it during a jog... I took a pano on purpose because I knew Google Photos would auto-stitch it. When I get back home, I had this! :)

Can A Number Be Banned?

+Chris Baraniuk asks if we can really make a piece of software illegal, since at the core it is really just a long number.

In his +BBC News article about the DeCSS legal wranglings back in 1999, he writes that the courtroom drama sparked "...a debate about the essence of computing and what things could logically be banned. The contention right at the heart of this was the fact that any computer file or program could be represented by a number. Could you really make numbers illegal?"

Copyright laws were written in a era of somewhat immutable ink-and-paper works. 16 years after the DeCSS controversy, the application of copyright law to software hasn't gotten any clearer.

Of all the sushi places in Central Ohio - and I've been to a lot of them - Mr. Sushi is in the top tier. Gotta award that 5 stars.

My wife and I stayed at the Porch House several years ago for a perfect getaway overnight. We are not big on the social aspect of B&B's, and that wasn't a problem as the house served as our home base for our busy schedule. We didn't want to miss out on the delicious breakfast, though, and it was fun to meet the other guests (briefly) before heading out. Location is perfect for bike treks (right on the bike trail access) or walking to dinner in town. Less than 2 blocks from most things, a little more for Denison events. Highly recommended.

These are your guys for critters like Moles, Birds, Bats, Raccoons, Squirrels, Chipmunks, Skunks, Groundhogs and Opossums. I heard what sounded like a chipmunk in our kitchen exhaust vent. Called at 11:30am on a Saturday, and Chris was out to my place within an hour. (For course, this may not always be possible.) Before he even started he said "That's not a chipmunk, sounds more like a bird" -- and he was right. Gained access to the bird without damaging or altering our duct work, released the bird outside, and restored the vent cover. Also did excellent installation of a vent screen to prevent re-entry. Price was about in the range I expected, perhaps a bit on the high side. But of the two others place I called first, one was closed and the other charged "emergency" rates on the weekends. So they were the lowest of those I found on a Saturday. Highly recommended.
