Interesting read on geographic sorting.

I have written about this previously. America is completely unprepared for this, especially culturally. In fact I believe we are already seeing the results of this, people are scapegoating immigrants and trade, and voting on this. But raging against the literal machine is not even on their radar. The truth is these changes have a far greater impact on rural America than urban America. The automation is hitting there first, than the coastal cities that have moved away from manufacturing based economies and more towards creative, knowledge, and service based economies.

Worth reading.

I have been absent from google plus. I am back. I will be posting more again as well as launching a policy blog.

Babymetal is touring the US in 2016, and yes, I indeed did get tickets when they play walking distance from my house at the Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD.

A recent performance I did, in it's entirety. The video is lo-fi, but the sounds are fifties/sixties sci-fi meets free improvisation.

Always good to see my name and music mentioned.

For those that did not catch my late night post, here is my review of +Moog Music Inc Mother-32 synthesizer.

Moog let me into their Asheville, NC factory and Sound Lab to review the Mother-32 semi-modular synthesizer. It is a beautiful instrument. 

Just to note to people this is the third hurricane in 5 years for the mid-atlantic. This is exactly the type of thing global warming causes. Increase frequency of extreme weather events. I should note, the projections may be conservative, as this storm is already exceeding them. It was not supposed to hit category 3 until saturday earlier in the day. The National Hurricane Center said there are "no limiting factors" for this hurricane to increase in intensity. So excuse me while I freak out.

Just to note for everybody concerned. 1. I am on high ground. 2. I live in an all brick row house. 3. DC is inland enough to soften the blow of a hurricane. 

With all that being said. I DO have friends in Virginia Beach, and it seems like Isabel that is where it is most likely to hit first. I saw the damage Sandy did, and in terms of hurricane intensity, it was not nearly as significant as this, it was just a very big storm.

Also important to note, the part which is being left of the news is the fact a very large storm system basically parked itself on the east coast independent of the hurricane. This has ALREADY caused significant flooding and storm damage in many places, and the east coast right now is pretty saturated in rain which increases the risks with a major storm like Hurricane Joaquin. 

I would like to say I am not worried about this storm. That would be a lie. I saw friends lose their homes and businesses to Sandy a few years ago in NYC/NJ, and this is looking like the potential to be a much worse storm.
