Truly amazing…

in these crazy tech times, we often get very jaded from all the tech we ‘should’ be paying attention to or care about – but THIS is truly amazing…. and pretty old-school in many, many ways.

Experimental Solar-Powered Plane Completes Journey Across The Pacific

Experimental solar-powered plane Solar Impulse 2 has landed in Mountain View, Calif., after a three-day flight across the Pacific.

“Good morning, California!” the plane’s visibly emotional pilot Bertrand Piccard told a cheering crowd at Moffett Airfield, where he landed at 11:44 p.m. local time. He’s soon handed an extra large bottle of champagne.

The Solar Impulse team is attempting to fly around the world using only the power of the sun.

Knights of Badassdom….

Saw this fri night with Kerewin. I love the fact that they made a movie making fun of (well, not completely but mostly) LARPing. Which surely is ripe for satire by its very nature. Always great to see Steve Zahn in anything too, although I didn’t even recognize him until the credits. And a great central character by Jackal Onassis! :)

The movie itself is kind of a cross between Scream (being not quite as ‘self-aware’ as that movie but definitely in that vein) vs. Fanboys (arguably much better than this movie for a number of reasons, but also more cutting in terms of satirizing the nerd fanboys therein).

Still, not horrible with some key funny moments, just a bit uneven.

What a great dog. Very sadly no longer with us. I made an 11×17 calendar of him in PDF format you can see at this link. If you are interested in getting your own printed copy, let me know (you can download and print yourself too, np – but note the file is 130mb, so pretty big due to the oversized images). Printing it like I did costs about $35 all told at Kinko’s – which is why I could only afford to do one for Dawniel – if you see her anytime soon, check it out in person – it came out really cool, actually.

B, RIP – you were one of a kind.
