The New World Atlas of Artificial Sky Brightness
How far are you from a naturally dark night sky? In increasing steps, this world map (medium | large) shows the effect of artificial night sky brightness on the visual appearance of the night sky. The brightness was modeled using high resolution satellite data and fit to thousands of night sky brightness measurements in recent work. Color-coded levels are compared to the natural sky brightness level for your location. For example, artificial sky brightness levels in yellow alter the natural appearance of the night sky. In red they hide the Milky Way in an artificial luminous fog. The results indicate that the historically common appearance of our galaxy at night is now lost for more than one-third of humanity. That includes 60% of Europeans and almost 80% of North Americans, along with inhabitants of other densely populated, light…

Mary had a little lamb
Its fleece was white as snow
And everywhere that Mary went
That lamb was sure to go.

So what you're telling me is, every where she goes, she always takes the wether with her?

Remember: as of this election preferences in both houses are entirely up to you. How to Vote cards are optional guidelines, how you actually fill in your preferences is your secret choice.

A similar regime is used for leukemia treatment. Step one, eliminate the immune system. Step two, recreate it. Brutal, but apparently effective.

Just had a very interesting discussion with a co-worker about photography, starting off about film vs digital, but then migrating across to cinematography, and where that might go next.

3D has turned out to be pretty, but by-and-large "meh" in terms of storytelling.

But what about 360 video?

What sort of storytelling can you come up with when you have more than 3/4 of your "screen" out of view, but able to be panned across to?

M.A.S.H. did something like this with the soundscape, where you could tell that there was more of the story occurring off-screen, but what if we could bring that on-screen?

What about the the problems of the technical aids and crew? How do you hide them?

What if you could watch the same movie three times, and see three different stories? Or nine, but looking at the way different bits overlap?

I have a song running through my head a the moment.

I have a song running through my head a the moment. It is from the 60's, about a young lady who has the misfortune to fall for the PM.

Mm -- "Is she really going out with him?"
"Well, there she is, let's ask her"
...

I met him in the House of Reps
He turned around and voted with me
You get the picture
"Yes, we see"
That's when I fell for the leader of the house






I'll get my coat, shall I?
