Have you ever tried identifying individual whales? It looks a bit like the below picture. Basically, you rate the percentage of light vs dark on the tail, box the tale in the image, identify the tail tips, and the center 'v' notch.
This allows us to train computer algorithms to recognize and track humpback whales based on their tails, which can be as unique as fingerprints.
If you want to help out with the project, you can head over to the "Whales as Individuals" project on Zooniverse.

I've read through this several times in various iterations of completeness online. The print copy of it has been on my shelf since starch press put it out. But I just haven't taken the time to re-read it.
Looking forward to giving #rust another shot. It's not that my interest ever faded in it, but that work is always getting in the way of being able to learn and work on funner things.

It's interesting how monetization is such a transformative process. And also how it informs an organizations value-judgement about other computing resources.
If we build everything with the intention of monetization we will make subtle choices in implementation towards that end.
And the end result tends to favor interfacing with other monetized entities -- e.g. search will favor showing stuff to buy or businesses to patron rather than Joe's personal blog.
At this point, I just don't see _why_. Why go through the trouble of adding the links but then not just putting it up as a web document.
(I've had the list since the start of the year. It's taken me this long to crunch through what little data entry I had)
Okay. I finally got the calendar of events in for our little community website.

I feel like not enough people focus on the fact that Germany wants to outlaw hosting Tor servers. A significant amount of Tor is hosted from Germany, but more importantly, if Germany outlaws it, many other countries that so far were afraid to do so will follow suite. All intelligence agencies despise Tor and lobby their governments to shut it down. It's a slippery slope.
