You can run but you cannot walk. You have a mouth but cannot talk. You have a head but never weep. You have a bed but never sleep. Who are you?

Woke up early to find a brilliant yellow sunrise at my doorstep.

Prove It

If you’ve been following my posts for a while, you’ve occasionally heard me mention a project  I’m a part of known as +Prove Your World.   Prove Your World is a project to present scientific concepts to kids in a way that demonstrates the process of scientific understanding.  The long term goal is to create a television show for 8 - 13 year olds.  One that demonstrates scientific thinking, features scientists as real people not stereotypes, and that empowers children to explore their world.

But for now we want to create a series of science webisodes that are fun, goofy, attention-grabbing, whimsical, inspiring, and useful.  So we’ve started a +Kickstarter  campaign to raise $10,000 for the series.  We think the webisodes will show just how good the TV series could be.

To that end, I’m asking for your help.  If you’d like to contribute, that would be cool.  But we also need help to spread the word.  So Tell your friends, neighbors, and random passers by.  And tell your Google+ communities as well.  Every +1, and share helps.

I think this project is pretty awesome.  Now it’s time for us to prove it.

Lol, fun party trick perhaps.  I imagine you could do this with more than 4 people if the chairs are just spaced right.

A notoriously hard photo to take with a simple camera phone zoom. This is about the best I can do using the 4k recording, full zoom then screen shot. (Note 3)

The Dark Matter Series

Thanks to everyone who plussed, shared, commented etc.  Here's the complete series in one place:

http://goo.gl/xpvDZX - Introduction
http://goo.gl/jGvBjw - The old model doesn't work
http://goo.gl/lAKQMX - Alternative gravity models don't work
http://goo.gl/0ee7dc - The dark matter model does work
http://goo.gl/f7Tzdk - Known dark matter isn't enough
http://goo.gl/nF1AcZ - We already know quite a bit

On a related note, several people have pointed out that G+ doesn't make it easy to catch every post, which is a particular problem when I do a connected series of posts.  I have several ideas on how to make following posts easier:

1. Tweet when I have a new post.  I do this already, but not everyone on G+ has or wants a Twitter account.  If you want to follow me, I'm @briankoberlein.

2. Edit posts so that there is a previously/next on every post.  That way if you find one, you can click through to others.

3. Make an RSS feed of my G+ posts.  There is apparently a way to do this, and people could have added it to their google reader accounts.

4. I could make a blog and post things on G+ and the blog.  The downside is you guys would have to help me find a name for it.

5. I could group posts into ebooks or something similar. 

Just to be clear, don't plan on shifting away from Google+.  There's a strong community here, and I plan on posting on G+ just as I have been for the foreseeable future.  But I also realize my posts have become very blog-like, and I'd like to make posts easier to follow if I can.

I'd love to hear your ideas/preferences/opposition.

Protect your right to purchase cars the way that you want to. Currently it is being challenged by the big business of dealerships. http://mashable.com/2013/06/27/tesla-petition/#
