2011-01-14 03:02:00
A year and a day after the horrific events of the 2010 Haiti earthquake, I am unveiling a tool that lets you visualize all the Twitter chatter that took place shortly after news spread through the Internet.

New Years Predictions for 2011
2011-01-02 07:23:00
The idea of predictions and resolutions for New Years is fairly stupid were it not for the fact that I've been doing this already for several years and it's always interesting to see what I've predicted in years past.

A rather linguistic Christmas to you all!
2010-12-25 21:36:00
Some interesting observations this very merry Christmas day: Why do some songs refer to the First Nowell and others the First NoŽl? It turns out that Noel itself comes from the Middle English nowel, which in turn is from the French noŽl, a variant of nael, from the Latin natalis, or "birth" (day).

My first quarter at Stanford
2010-12-19 00:44:00
It's not very often that I write about specific personal experiences much anymore, but I feel like I stand to make an opportunity to share a bit of the last few months as a way to be able to reflect upon these later on in my life.

Across the Olympic finish line
2010-03-01 03:02:00
It’s great now that video replays are common we can all share in snippets of the wonderful Olympic s (never mind the fact that the only US licensed provider of live streaming and video from the Olympics is NBC). I’ve come across the following that I’ve saved for future enjoyment (click for larger versions): Nikita Kriukov and ...

Comparing Navigon, TomTom and Sygic iPhone GPS apps
2010-02-12 03:51:00
It’s hard not to get lost and wonder how you could live life without GPS. While many people now have standalone GPS units or embedded systems within their cars, it helps to have GPS on a unit like the iPhone in order to keep tabs on parked car locations or simply navigating by foot. (And ...

Mujer a la deriva / Woman adrift, private collection. The more I think about it, the more angry I get. Just recently, a columnist for The Atlantic, Lori Gottlieb, published a book called “Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough”. It was based on the columns she had written, which began with The ...

The social network of driving
2010-01-31 03:58:00
An interesting article about the psychology of driving suggests that as cars become more “safer” they allow drivers to take more risks. It’s something that has crossed my mind more than once in my drives up and down the East Coast. Here are some of my thoughts. 1. Driving is perhaps the only social interaction environment ...

2009-08-09 17:20:00
The recent return of Laura Ling and Euna Lee from 140 days of captivity in North Korea is cause for much celebration and happiness. They are safe and unharmed, and the rest of the world can now breathe easily knowing that they are back home. Ever since they were captured, vigils were held all across ...

Driver?s license? Check!
2009-08-01 17:41:00
I think being able to drive is almost a quintessentially American rite of passage from teendom to adulthood. Even before having a serious boy- or girlfriend, even before seriously considering investing in one?s college education, even before setting in stone one?s career choices, everyone has a license, and not having one is peculiar. The ...

A perfect killing solution?
2009-07-26 05:51:00
The BBC Horizon channel recently aired UK MP Michael Portillo’s attempts to find a humane solution to execution (see it here). He sets out looking for a method that a) does not require medical expertise, because doctors abide by the Hippocratic law, preventing them from doing anything that will contribute to death, b) is quick and painless, c) ...

Don?t believe your eyes
2009-07-25 19:26:00
You probably won’t believe me when I say that the two bands of green and blue are actually the same color. It’s a bit easier to see when you isolate the bands: The actual color has hexadecimal value 00ff99, which is lime green. The orange and pink swirls interspersing each area tricks our eyes to seeing ...

This book is a visual narrative and history of the Swarthmore Fire and Protective Association, the volunteer fire company I was a member of for four years. It’s small, but it’s rich with first-hand documents dating back to the 19th century. The book was published as a commemoration for the company’s 100th year of existence.

The problem with browsers

Opera Unite, Firefox 3.5, Internet Explorer 8, Chrome, Safari 4. The recent spate of browsers that will “revolutionize the way people surf the internet” seems to be as prolific as the emergence of search engines (read: Bing, WolframAlfa, Cuil). I didn’t even know half of these existed. It certainly doesn’t help it with the common consumer ...

Home Sweet American Culture

As I have had the opportunity of house hunting in the past few weeks in a few areas of Massachussetts, it gave me a few things to consider. Some homes are just too darned big, in my opinion, but clearly aren’t big enough for some. The American Dream, if there’s any remain of it in the present ...

Reflecting Upon the Swarthmore Experience
2009-06-02 23:31:00
It is hard to be unbiased towards one’s alma mater, particularly since college experiences do not often give opportunities for comparison. Undeniably, though, the college experience becomes a defining point of one’s mental and social capacity, and the fresh, straight-out-of-college reflections I write here will be interesting to revisit at a later date. What Swarthmore has ...
