Wow, this is a pretty balanced article critical of how St. Thomas Moore is treated int he recent BBC production of "Wolf Hall"  the Tablet can still publish something worth reading.

Took me almost a full minute, but I decided I like it. You've probably seen it before though.

Driving a car should carry the same kind of care and responsibility and legal consequences for misuse as carrying a Glock 9mm.  Cars are more dangerous than guns. 
Cruel and random death drains us hollow and we hope, against all rational evidence, that some muted and tolerable life will seep back in. Yes, all premature death seems unnecessary, but Cooper died from our civic negligence. We, the citizens of New Y...

Rockin' wow!!!   Programming and data analytics tools now available to any group, common platform, open access..  A great resource for clubs, schools, etc.  ....
 
Over the last year I've worked with some awesome folks (+Kester Tong  +Mark Sandler, +Corinna Cortes , +Matthew Turk,  +Gideon Mann  +Arnaud Sahuguet, +Adam Berenzweig) to understand how people collaborate on data analysis and to build better tools to support them. Yesterday, with the help of +Fernando Perez and +Wes McKinney we revealed this work at PyCon APAC.

We've created an interactive, collaborative analytics tool by integrating Google Docs, Chrome, and IPython. You can open a notebook from Drive. You can share notebooks like you would share a Google Doc. You can comment and edit collaboratively, in realtime. There is zero setup, because all the computation happens in Chrome. You can even quickly and easily package your analytics pipeline into a GUI for folks that don't want to program. In effect, you can go from zero to analytics with little impedance.  

What's even better is that you can build on our work. It will all be open source on top of public Google APIs. We'll have a larger Google Research blog post about this work when we release the code and the Chrome application.

Unfortunately drawn into reading medieval history the past few days....  
 
A brief history of how people communicated in the Middle Ages
"Communication of legislation was important for medieval rulers, but, as today, people were also able to spread rumours and gossip. It is not always clear where medieval, or indeed modern, rumours began, but there is no doubt that they could spread quickly."
"In the second half of the 14th century, England saw great upheaval and challenges: the war with France was going badly, and at home the Black Death, beginning in 1348–9, had killed at least a third of the population. Survivors might have hoped for better conditions, as a smaller work force tried to demand higher wages, but this was stopped by the Ordinance and Statute of Labourers setting wages at the pre-plague level."
"In 1381 this famously erupted into the violence of the Peasants’ Revolt, but in 1377 there were already signs of discontent, manifested in the ‘Great Rumour’. This social movement, spread by word of mouth across southern England, saw rural labourers refusing to work, arguing that the Domesday Book granted them exemptions form their feudal services."
Official speech In 14th and 15th-century England, as the Hundred Years’ War raged in France, towns and villages heard about events through official speech – primarily through their priests.

Please don't ride on the features in Yellostone!  But I'd love to see groups of cyclists like this everyday!

A man dressed in full armor, complete with chain-mail, helmet, shield a sword and staff ran into the busy intersection and started attacking the woman’s car, according to KATU in Portland.

Bass told officers he was in no way a pirate, but was, in fact, a “high-elf engaged in battle with the evil Morgoth.”

New York City  Hey, what coffee shops are great in NYC this year.  Everyman seems to have failed.  9th Street, Grumpy, El Beit are still around.  I need to make a list for my tip.

Everyman is still alive and kicking! They've got two locations: one on 13th St near Union Sq, and the other in Soho on W Broadway at Canal.

The never-before-seen Camelopardalid meteor shower is due to peak overnight on May 23 and 24. 
A new meteor shower spawned by a comet is due to light up the sky next week, with some forecasters predicting up to 200 'shooting stars' per hour, a potentially spectacular opening act for the meteor display.

Yep, Montana is WAY overrated. Those polls showing people in MT don't want to leave? Well, they know better than to drive down the real estate values before they get out! Texas is a real back to the land wide open spaces state. Move to Texas.

+David Dickens well, speaking as a Montana Ex Pat, I am very confident that if you did move to Montana, people will be friendly and welcoming, way beyond most folks expectations.  And when they complain about new arrivals they probably will be making an exception for you and just about anyone they actually know, except for obnoxious jerks and people who buy large ranches and close them off to hunting.

But there is a problem.  What makes Montana such a great place to live is that it is the way it is, and development changes that.  It wouldn't be such a big deal, and it looks like (and is) a Huge state with plenty of room.  The Problem is very, very few people want to move to Montana and live more that 2 hours from an airport with at least 2 flights a day out to Denver or SLC.  And very, very few people want to live in towns with only one, small, slightly expensive market, no movie theatre, no coffee shop, no cable or broadband internet, etc, etc.  and Few people want to live in a town that can only be reached by driving 60 or 100 miles on two lane roads, poorly maintained and no shoulder.  And most people want to live as close to the mountains and possible.  Who moves to Montana to be out on open prairie that looks somewhat like Nebraska.  

So what that means is that 120% of the population growth in Montana is along the I-90 and I-15 corridors and around the best, and most scenic areas.  So around Missoula, down the Bitterroot Valley, and up the Flathead to Kalispel and Whitefish.  Also, around Bozeman and up the Gallatin Valley and east to Livingston and in Paradise Valley.  Skip Butte for the most part - too old, ugly, industrial and run down and just plain different (and Catholic).  Skip Great Falls, too windy, out in the plains and not very cosmopolitan, only a very small College.  Skip Billings, too generic and also in the Plains.  But impact the best of the of a very few quality small towns.   

Meanwhile in most Montana Counties, population  is on a long term decline.  Except that recently the Oil Shale boom in Alberta, North Dakota and far Eastern Montana has added a huge influx of rough neck oil workers and associated crime and drugs and drinking while adding nothing at all to the stable population and to strengthen communities.

So yeah.  Move to Texas.  or Colorado.
