Yay!  Voting rocks.  I voted in Berkeley.  Then played my first gig with my new band at the Pyramid Ale House in Walnut Creek.  Celebration for the local Demo party.  Unfortunately, the Obama T-shirt I ordered for the gig did not ship in time.  Something about weather near the east coast warehouse ...

A post-feminism look at high-powered career women. I really appreciate the realistic perspective Anne-Marie Slaughter has about this. Although I do plan to be superhuman, rich, and self-employed.

There's a new Wes Anderson film! I'm so excited!

This is interesting. The industry really needs this sort of kick in the ass. And if you think it's not an industry, you are wrong there...

I just googled upon +Vic Gundotra's intro post about goo+: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/06/introducing-google-project-real-life.html

In it, he says, "You and over a billion others trust Google, and we don’t take this lightly. In fact we’ve focused on the user for over a decade: liberating data, working for an open Internet, and respecting people’s freedom to be who they want to be. We realize, however, that Google+ is a different kind of project, requiring a different kind of focus—on you."

And the bold text links here: http://googlepublicpolicy.blogspot.com/2011/02/freedom-to-be-who-you-want-to-be.html

Highlights: "When it comes to Google services, we support three types of use: unidentified, pseudonymous and identified. And each mode has its own particular user benefits."

This is more the original party line that sold me on google in the first place. The whole real names policy disaster really seems like an ill-conceived divergence. It's like watching a stubborn teenager ruin their future.

You can filter your stream by circles in the android app! In the early days we had a few threads bitching about the unfilterable stream. I just updated my goo+ android app, but now I'm not sure this wasn't there all along.

Here's how: from the home screen of the app, go to Circles. Then select the circle you want to read. Then at the bottom select "posts".

So was this in that enormous collective google doc I didn't bother to read? I'm on minternets so I will check it later from my laptop.

Christina's work is great. I am a bit biased though because she's my buddy and also because I love neuroscience that works with alternative populations. I love how working with blind or deaf (or even just ASL) people challenges our assumptions about the brain--assumptions often based on the standard middle class college student brain.
 
Auditory cortex processes touch in deaf people. Neat study by my friend Christina: http://bit.ly/O87QjJ (by +Nadja Popovich in +The Atlantic)

(that said, there are other mechanisms for history in browsers/android devices/etc. and I believe they're increasingly sync'd so one may need to look into that to be sure?)

This sort of fluke is why I've always found music neuroscience fascinating. Every so often we have a case which legitimately and casually just breaks all the rules.
Jason Vytlacil originally shared:
 
this is absolutely amazing : http://www.radiolab.org/blogs/radiolab-blog/2011/jul/26/4-track-mind/

also, lest anyone misunderstand what the hell is going on in this guys' head, Jad explains it in a comment to an idiot on the message board : Jad
Hi DYA,

Bob's abilities don't seem to be linked to any easily identifiable form of synesthesia.

When Bob hears music, he doesn't have the triggering of colors or smells that's typical of classic syntesthetes. But he does say he has intense emotional responses to different notes and cords. So certainly there may be some kind of unusual crosstalk between his emotional mind and his musical mind (to whatever degree they're separate).

To those folks who question just how extraordinary Bob's abilities are to begin with, perhaps we didn't do our job well enough.

Think of this way: Each of the four symphonies is in a different key and at a different tempo. And within each, the musicians are constantly modulating keys and the conductor is speeding up and slowing down the tempo for dramatic effect. So you've got four very complicated pieces of music with independently fluctuating melodies, keys and tempos...and all four start at different times. So there is nothing between them that's in sync.

Yes, Brubek's drummer Joe Morello can play separate rhythms with each limb, but he's still moving all his arms and legs to ONE beat, ONE tempo. Now, if Joe could somehow decouple his four limbs and simultaneously play chopsticks on the marimba at 122 bpm with his left arm while juggling three oranges at precisely 89 rpm with his right arm while tapping out the Gettysburg address in morris code at the speed of one word per second with his left leg while spinning a basketball on the big toe of his right foot...then you'd have something approximating what Bob Milne seems to be doing in his head. In my opinion.

Thanks everyone for listening and commenting!

Jad
In this short, a neurologist issues a dare to a ragtime piano player and a famous conductor. When the two men face off in an fMRI machine, the challenge is so unimaginably difficult that one man insta...

Love Noisebridge! For me the existence of NB trumps the traffic annoyance of SF. My friends are pressuring me to move there and discovering that space tipped the balance in favor of yes.
