When I look at Eric Fisher’s twitter visualization, I’m thinking of the article Kenyatta forwarded on about random quantum walks at sub-atomic speeds in photosynthesis, olfactory processing, and human information processing:
“Art map master Eric Fischer is back to make cartographic sense of all that location data you’re giving away for free on Twitter. This is New York, with New Yorkers’ trips routed and their geotag density mapped out in “10000 points, 30000 vectors.”” From Animal New York
this is amazing.
I love that it looks like neuron groupings.
DARPA is funding research into an interstellar starship. But it’s not for a BSG prequel, as I discover in this new piece for Talking Points Memo:DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, is planning on disbursing a $500,000 grant in November for interstellar starship research. Though the agency’s plan sounds more like subject matter for a prequel episode of Battlestar Galactica, the agency is hoping starship research will lead to very real advances in science and industry.(via DARPA Is Funding Interstellar Space Travel | TPM Idea Lab)
When are we going to cut the B/S and rename DARPA, NASA?
