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.

Hats off to the brave who have reasons to fear and things to lose, but who do not yield.

And double hats off to them for doing it in a field full of bastards who think themselves the brave ones.

You are seen by more than those who wish you ill.

"When Bernie Sanders was elected mayor of Burlington in 1981 he tasked O'Meara Sanders... and local youth organizers to find a way to improve communication between the city's politically active youth population and the municipal government."
The youth music center Sanders opened as mayor of Burlington in the 1980s is now the country's oldest all-ages DIY venue renowned for its punk scene.

Okay, JJ. With this and your two Star Wars demonstration videos (oddly both are titled Star Trek as if to troll us), I'm in.

Still wish they were going to be spaced out more and in the summer, but by 2019 none of that will matter.
 
Star Wars: The Force Awakens got its second teaser trailer released today. Wahoo!

I love the wrecked destroyer! The mangled helmet! Metal hand! Force-using lady! Scary troopers!

Surprisingly-to-me meh on the Han Solo cameo.

Found on +Tim Franzke's Stream.

Right? Hoping the next teaser might shed some light on him.

There's many signs of a great mix of "we're moving the mythology forward" and respect for the past.
