STRAVA Releases New Annadel Park Map

STRAVA Releases New Annadel Park Map

Not actually a new park map… but an actual representation of how the public is using the park.

STRAVA’s reasons for providing the data will strike a chord with many:

“We are providing this information in anonymous aggregate form to help improve infrastructure and safety for cyclists, runners and pedestrians.”

Check out your favorite park, and learn where the secret trails are. Do it quick – I suspect State Parks and other private organizations will put the kibosh on this amazing tool in short order.

Something Stewing

The path forwards…

Been kinda quiet around lately… Well, as usual, the winds of change are blowing again.

Soon, perhaps by the time you’re reading this, there’ll be something fantastic filling some of the multimedia, news & entertainment discussion space here in gorgeous Northern California.

When it’s ready, you’ll be the first to know here.


It Takes An Editor (quitting)

…in order for the press to stop and take notice.

I’ve noticed a trend – that many journalists are much more interested when an Editor-in-Chief of a long-respected technology and culture magazine quits his job to play with toys drones.  Also just heard a primer segment hinting at a bigger audio piece to be aired on Marketplace later today.

“These days, we tend to think of “drones” in a military context. But drones are popping up in a number of fields, including firefighting and newsgathering. A new company that makes them is run by a former editor of Wired magazine and a 26-year-old engineering whiz from Tijuana. Reporter: John Rosman

Going on a Hack Hunt.

Anyone is welcome! – I’m going to bring a quadcopter to give flight to whatever moves the group.  I have a sneaking suspicion I might try and strap a green laser to it… what else should be given flight?  Be there, or be square. 🙂
