I'm in the phone book! I'm in the phone book! That means I'm a real person now, right?

It doesn't have all my work though.@=(

Groovy Rings at Saturn! From afar, Saturn's rings look like a solid, homogenous disk of material. But upon closer examination from Cassini, we see that there are varied structures in the rings at almost every scale imaginable.

Structures in the rings can be caused by many things, but often times Saturn's many moons are the culprits. The dark gaps near the left edge of the A ring (the broad, outermost ring here) are caused by the moons (Pan and Daphnis) embedded in the gaps, while the wider Cassini division (dark area between the B ring and A ring here) is created by a resonance with the medium-sized moon Mimas (which orbits well outside the rings). Prometheusis seen orbiting just outside the A ring in the lower left quadrant of thisimage; the F ring can be faintly seen to the left of Prometheus.

I love the pics NASA releases.
 
Citizen scientists lead astronomers to mystery objects in space: Sometimes it takes a village to find new and unusual objects in space. Volunteers scanning tens of thousands of starry images from our Spritzer Space Telescope, using the Web-based Milky Way Project, recently stumbled upon a new class of curiosities that had gone largely unrecognized before: yellow balls. The rounded features are not actually yellow -- they just appear that way in the infrared, color-assigned Spitzer images. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1CvncJX

The non-entertaining version of the movie. (Hence the reason Hollywood didn't give the apes our technology in the first place).

I love stuff like this. I want a color wheel designed from this too. Maybe I'll make one myself.
 
A Rainbow of Wavelengths - This still image is based on data from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, showing the wide range of the sun’s wavelengths – invisible to the naked eye – that the telescope can view. SDO converts the wavelengths into an image humans can see, and the light is colorized into a rainbow of colors.

Yellow light of 5800 Angstroms, for example, generally emanates from material of about 10,000 degrees F (5700 degrees C), which represents the surface of the sun. Extreme ultraviolet light of 94 Angstroms, which is typically colorized in green in SDO images, comes from atoms that are about 11 million degrees F (6,300,000 degrees C) and is a good wavelength for looking at solar flares, which can reach such high temperatures. By examining pictures of the sun in a variety of wavelengths scientists can track how particles and heat move through the sun's atmosphere.

Interesting.
 
Alas.  I was so much more a fan of the Schmidt Google, vs. the Page Google.  This article shows some reasons why.
As Google abandons its past, Internet archivists step in to save our collective memory.

Having trouble with my story today, so I took a moment to refresh my memory of the 3 Act Structure. My search took me to this brilliant little page which was just what the Story Doctor ordered.

That's when I realized I accidentally solved all my problems before the story even started, which is why (of course) that I can't actually write the silly thing. So back to square one where poor Eryka gets the important things taken away from her by her evil author.
The Three-Act Structure. Home >> Screenwriting >> The 3-Act Structure. steve spielberg quote. The 3-act structure is a very old maxim widely adhered to in storytelling and fiction writing today. It can be found in plays, poetry, novels, comic books, short stories, video games, and the movies.

Sharing strangeness from my morning brain. Let me know what you think. It may (or may not) become a real story.

Flying Pen Press is shutting it's publishing arm. Most of its titles are going to be out of print by the end of January 2014. It's a pity this happened, but not surprising. The publisher has shown a consistent tendancy to break the contract over royalty statements. He kept not sending them as promised and the one he did send was a year+ late.

Of course, the letter I received tells me that I get my story rights back as of January 2013 (last year), which means I can republish Liberty Jones before then without hassle. HA!
