One of the nice things about a lunar eclipse is how accessible it is. You don’t need binoculars or a telescope (though it helps). You don’t need protective gear. You can see it from a city street with lights on. You don’t need to be in exactly the right…
One of the nice things about lunar eclipses is how easy they are to watch. No special equipment needed, just a clear view, even from the city.

Looking through my email this morning, I had the following messages regarding today's online protests against mass surveillance.

EFF: Call Congress, spread the word
Google: Call Congress, spread the word
TheDayWeFightBack.org: Call congress, spread the word
O'Reilly: Save 50% on books about privacy.

One of these things is not like the others...

I think I've unwittingly started another project: watching the various movie adaptations of Les Misérables. (One of the hazards of searching Netflix by title.) The 1978 version is great when it comes to the story of Valjean vs. Javert, but everything else is pushed out to the point where it's merely incidental.

So apparently I messed up the link between WordPress and Google+ a month ago and all my posts have been shared privately. I just figured no one was reading them over here. Which I guess is technically true...

Which is kind of nice to know, actually!

The caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland is totally a Vorlon.

He’s always asking “Who are you?”, has a short temper, speaks cryptically, and when he offers help, he won’t explain it. He relies on an alternate atmosphere supply. And in the Disney version, he even sheds his external skin and reveals himself as a winged being.

I don’t think he was ever named, but I think I should call him Kosh.

I finally saw Frozen last week. Somehow I managed to avoid spoilers, detailed critiques (I'd file them away to read once I'd seen the movie), or even -- believe it or not -- hearing "Let it Go" before I had a chance to watch the scene and get the full context.  Of course, I also couldn't help but think of Tangled...

Yeah, that's about right.

Wearable computing and Comic Con. Two great tastes...?
 
I was reading up on wearable computing today, and with the SDCC badge presale looming, I found myself wondering whether a smart watch would be useful for Comic-Con.  I actually came up with some use cases.

Well, there's a usability fight that's long since been lost. I found this among the handful of articles at my old Opera software blog that I wanted to save before its shutdown.

This used to be a great artisan ice cream shop, but it's closed now. There's a graphics company in this location now.
