Hey, +Jan Moravec, looks like there's another tower mosaic out there. :)
 
I'm used to walking 10 - 15 miles a day on my own. So it was a delight to walk 25 miles yesterday with 7 other #Ingress insane people to complete 32 missions resulting in the TransAmerica building mission art. Sitrep soon!

The towers were such a brilliant idea! I hope to visit Prague sometime to see the city and do your missions.

They were selling these - I have no idea why - at the Viking Ships Museum in Roskilde, Denmark.

I'm kind of disturbed at how well it works..

Over the last two weeks, I think I walked about 100 km possibly as much as 150 (see: Ingress, benefits of playing, also: need a good walk-tracking app for iOS. Moves isn't cutting it.). Along with that was three days with a lot of dancing in them.
Today I believe I walked about a quarter of a kilometer at most.
Of course, over the last two weeks, I slept in a fair number of beds that were not my own, and usually way too few hours a night, and often without climate control.
Today I've slept about 15 hours so far, and will be doing more soon.

I've walked 1980 km since December 14th. 

Those of you who know the stuff I'm not posting publicly know how much of an achievement that is.

I've lost 34 pounds.  I've gone down 2 pants sizes.  Most days my leg doesn't hurt. 

Well worth the non-trivial amount of money I've spent on this free game.

Did you ever wonder what you would hit if you sailed due East or West until you ran into something? That may be slightly arbitrary, but it's cool, especially with brightly colored maps to illustrate it from all over the world.

Is there anyone out there who has an e-book of Lev Grossman's The Magician's Land that I could borrow for a couple of weeks? We can talk about the definition of borrowing a e-book later.

You can return minuteman books early. You just have to do it from the app (Overdrive or Adobe Digital Editions), not the library website, once you've downloaded it.

Their hold list does seem to be much slower than the BPL's, though. I blame a longer default checkout period and fewer copies (and let's not get into the limited uses of limited copies of ebooks...)

Hm. These days I consider myself a mix. Maybe that's why I like it hilly. :)

I have to admit, they lost some credibility points with me by being unable to spell extrovert correctly as well.

Almost didn't see this, due to timing. Glad we didn't miss it.

Introduction
I believe that G+'s rules about pseudonymity and anonymity were wrong-headed, potentially dangerous, culturally deaf, useless, and basically stupid.

I'm also frustrated that they managed to have seemingly neutered a site that could've been So Much Better than FB.
