50 years since the signing of the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964. This collection of documents and footage is like a time machine.
 
Really cool - a new online exhibit of photos, videos and letters documenting the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Proud of the Google Cultural Institute for hosting this with the U.S. National Archives and the LBJ Library. This exhibit is a treasure. http://goo.gl/uW4gLq #CivilRightsSummit

Bringing truth to power.  Last night the International Center for Journalists had their annual awards dinner in Washington. Roman Anin, an investigative reporter with Moscow's Novaya Gazeta, and Umar Cheema, an investigative reporter with Pakistan's The News, were honored along with NBC's Richard Engel. These men truly risk their lives in search of the truth. Novaya Gazeta has had five reporters murdered in the last decade. Umar has been kidnapped and tortured. Richard Engel was kidnapped with his crew for five days. This is real heroism in the quest of principled high-quality journalism. #ICFJ2013

As my daughter Meera pointed out today's really special, mathematically speaking. It's not just PI DAY (3.14) but also the only PI DAY of the century that coincides with PALINDROME WEEK (3.10.13, 3.11.13. 3.12.13, 3.13.13, 3.14.13, 3.15.13, 3.16.13)

Very cool! It's entertaining and eye opening to be able to jump around a country and look at street view pictures. Walk around Taiwan for a bit, then Ukraine, then Peru, then Norway, then Swaziland. Try it!

What I'd want of course is the Van Gogh option -- an image processing layer to turn each street view photo into an impressionist painting!
 
This is surprisingly addictive, and if you limit it to a particular country, it gives you a nice gestalt of the place. For example, when I restrict it to Taiwan, every scene that shows up, I think, “Yup, that’s so Taiwan.”

May 3rd is World Press Freedom day. This map from RSF is a wake up call. In the last 4 months alone there were 19 journalists killed and 174 imprisoned. They were not covering Kate Middleton's baby bump, suggesting stocks to pick or reviewing gadgets from their armchair I can assure you.

Real journalism is not easy. It isn't cheap. It need not be entertaining or have the potential to go viral. Nonetheless, it is vital for a free society and enables civic engagement. It can unlock a better future.

Columbia J-school has a new dean. Congratulations to Steve Coll on the appointment! (We're going to miss Dean Nick Lemann.) This is a great opportunity to rethink how digital journalism should be practised and correspondingly how it should be taught.

Very cool. Berkeley scientists explain how they used probabilistic models of sound change to reconstruct ancient languages. Their automated approach performs comparably with manual reconstruction of the Austronesian proto-language by linguists. I wonder why they didn't do Proto Indo European.

Yes, am also quite keen to know if proto-Dravidian language can be reconstructed, to see how much of a correlation does current day Tamil have with archaic Tamil, soon after it emerged. Also, for Tulu.
