Tsunami's could hit anywhere, even the east coast of the US:
I will add to this later, but just wanted to get down a list of my favorite video bloggers so far:
Tracking back the links...
- jason buckley
- comment says the Beasties themselves made a better mashup on Sounds of Science
- dr menlo
- Weird, boing boing is listed as a trackback, but I can't find the link on the site. Was it removed? Google's cache of boing boing starts at the 20th, so no luck there.
- metafilter got it
Ok, I didn't care much for Dangermouse's Jay-Z mix, but I like this one...
[There used to be a link to the Beastles mix here, but it is gone now]
More mashup links here.
All of this courtesy of blogdex.
Reposts links from a bunch of blogs, sorted by popularity. A good way to get a list of what people are interested in during the day.
Apparently you can use mathematics to find patterns in just about anything, including relationships. I often wonder if I am a mathematician and I don't even know it. I often intuitively find patterns in items of entertainment... movies, television shows, books, computer games... I get bored very easily if one of those items fits the patterns I recognize. I haven't diagrammed it out but I can grasp it intuitively. I wonder when the culture will shift-- when a new algorithm will come around to replace the old ones and the things that keep us distracted in the world are replaced by something new and more complex...
How I got here:
"There have been some arguments that limits on visual memory are related to limits on the number of items we can attend to at once as well as to limits on the number of items we can count at a glance (typically both have capacity estimates of around three to four)," added Dr Simons.
