Burning Man 2011: Rites of Passage - Burn Night Timelapse Video

I had an amazing time at Burning Man. This timelapse is one of the few recordings of any sort that do the event justice.

I’m loving Mapnificent, which visualizes how fast you can reach various distances with public transit. This view shows what I can reach in “at most 15 minutes” from my apartment.

Russia in color, around 1910
This particular example is an Armenian woman in modern-day northwest Turkey, in the Caucasus mountains. She’s probably about the same age as my great-grandmother who lived somewhat near there until the Armenian genocide.

On my flight home last night, we flew over a thunderstorm with lots of lightning. My pictures look like crap, but this pic I found is a fair representation of what I saw for 10 minutes.

This is pretty much my life.
Some other xkcd love while I’m at it - fourier transforms, my job, and several fascinating infographics.

A series of side-by-side historical and modern photographs of my neighborhood in San Francisco.  This one is most striking - there was a church next to me 50 years ago!

Taco Town Taco
Saturday Night Live-inspired: crunchy beef taco with nacho cheese, lettuce, tomato and southwestern sauce wrapped in a soft flour tortilla with a layer of refried beans in between, then wrapped in a corn tortilla with a layer of Monterey Jack cheese in a deep fried gordita shell with guacamole sauce baked in a corn husk topped with pico de gallo, wrapped in a crepe, filled with egg, griere cheese, sausage and portobello mushrooms, all wrapped in a chicago-style deep dish pizza wrapped in a blueberry pancake and finally deep fried with spicy vegetarian chili dipping sauce.

A lot of people don’t think there’s much to do in the south bay.  After living here 4 years, I have many things to recommend, and I made a google map out of them.
