    Oh, great.

    TV was gonna be this great new medium to educate and illuminate, but it got eaten by soap and beer companies.

    Cable was the next great hope, but it got eaten by infomercials and 400 variations on “Ow! My Balls!”

    Internet 1 was next, and here we are as it gets eaten by The Movies.

    Internet 2, whatever it’s real name, must be breaking the waves now. Mesh networks in our watches? (Hey, “wearables” is a buzzword lately!) Super-cheap routers as ubiquitous as graffiti — guerrilla infrastructure on unlicensed frequencies.

    I need more wine.

    This would be both amazing and frightening. Amazing to find that you were, say, standing near your spouse years before you met them. Frightening when you see who your spouse was with at the time…
    When my grandparents still lived in Ft Lauderdale, Tallahassee was the halfway point on our 2-day Vacation drives. A few summers in a row we stayed at this one hotel just S of I-10 on Monroe St., next to the Shoney’s.

    My wife, whom I met in 2006, grew up just N of that intersection and would’ve been late in HS/early in college during those years, commuting from her parents’ house to HS/FSU every day. We were almost certainly within a mile of each other, at least once or twice, although probably not actually standing next to each other.

    (She was probably playing the first Def Leppard album in her Galaxie 500. I was probably listening to Kasey Kasem tapes in the way-back of the Family Truckster.)

  6. Google is turning back time with a new Street View feature that shows users how a place has changed over the years. By adding historical imagery from past collections dating back to 2007, the search giant has created a digital time capsule of the world.

    Another fun thing that facial and spatial recognition software is going to is this: ID all the strangers in everyone’s old vacation photographs.

    * I have a photo of Me ‘n Mickey circa ‘75. Since maybe 1980 I’ve been wondering who all those strangers are in the background.

    * Lot of ‘64 World’s Fair photos in the world. Quite a few posted the other day in celebration of its 50th anniversary. My parents, honeymooners, might be in the background of some of them. I haven’t spotted ‘em yet, but HAL 9000 might.

    The Church- Another Earth.

    I’ve had a lot of wine but…

    This song seems to balance perfectly between the arpeggio/jangle pop of the early Church and the later drone-y/proggy/groovy albums.

    (The ‘Winamp visualization plugin’ YouTube videos lean toward the neckbeard-prog, alas)
