@darius I put that in the "thanks for making me Google that, now I've learned something today" category.
Absolutely wonderful day-in-the-life photos from Bell Labs in 1969/70 (via Kottke). http://www.larryluckham.com/1969%20&%2070%20-%20Bell%20Labs/album/index.html
@paulmcaleer I just had a nice contact on Flickr (via Flickr Mail!) about my pet cemetery project.
Some tunes I've been digging for the first part of 2019: https://open.spotify.com/user/supalaze/playlist/5UhXXTthZjs7OLC0pqSEf1?si=aLIA_6CtTRWtL3ziMnzKKA
@paulmcaleer I am truly at the point where technology that doesn't solve an actual social issue is completely uninteresting to me.
Is there a source for news about new tech that's actually being used for something good?
@darius "Doings"? Man. Make that "doing this."
Someone should create an Alexa app that lets you clap twice to turn the lights on and off like the original smart home device. https://youtu.be/cfgN5tUgjb8
A teacher from my high school documented school life for years. For each class' 20th anniversary he puts together a 2 1/2 hour time capsule DVD. I was revisiting ours tonight and even though I hated high school, it is an absolute trip watching video from the school, seeing the friends, classrooms, teachers, all frozen in time as I remember them.
(He is also responsible for the video of me rapping at my senior prom in 94.)
This is a seriously entertaining article about dog poop and how we need to start thinking more about it. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/jan/15/dog-poop-bags-plastic-alternatives
I'm astonished (and impressed) that someone has built a device to power a streetlamp with dog poop depoisted in it.
"Walkers use free paper dog poo scoopy-bags and put it into a bin that feeds it into a biodigester. The microbes in the anaerobic digester produce methane, which is then stored and used to power a streetlamp that comes on at dusk."
@pb Nice find!
Man. Before iPhones existed. That was lifetimes ago, right?
@pb The obvious next challenge: find the photo you were taking at that moment.
@pb Believe it or not, it was from Webvisions 2006. Even found your post about it here: https://www.onfocus.com/2006/07/3816/webvisions-day-1
Random photo time - see if you can name the time/event, @pb
