Director, The Internet Foundation Studying formation and optimized collaboration of global communities. Applying the Internet to solve global problems and build sustainable communities. Internet policies, standards and best practices. Consulting and advising organizations of all sizes. Not for profit. When you get down to it, all these papers on the Internet and published, were originally just letters between friends and people of similar interest. Current projects: Best practices for all Internet sites, and for global communities using the Internet. Improving model and data flows, establishing end-to-end lossless and open channels. Particularly for global scale issues such as "covid", "global climate change", "online education", "solar system colonization", "research", "development", and "learning". Education and Interests: Gravitational sensors, sensor networks, modeling and simulation of all things, encouraging development of a gravitational engineering industry, calibrating new gravitational sensors.

Broken Links on virgo-gw.eu and lack of Internet strategy for gravitation

Hello, I was at https://www.virgo-gw.eu/#about and clicked on “Click here for more information on the Virgo experiment and its science.” to find that the link is broken.  “page not found” “There is no offer for the moment, stay tuned” I am looking at the O3a data at https://www.gw-openscience.org/archive/links/O3a_16KHZ_R1/V1/1238166018/1253977218/simple/ I can download it and read it

Feedback to Hotjar at iopscience.iop.org Is there anything more we could do

https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1361-6382/ab685e Dear HotJar and IOP Readers, Your questions are too specific. I came here because of a search on Google for gravitational waves software, particularly how the signal on the two arms of each detector is extracted from the single interference strain data. Now your articles are all in text and pictures, so I have

Comment on Fusion Rockets Video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STtXdpD8LtM Neutrons have a permanent magnetic moment and can be accelerated (controlled) by magnetic gradient fields. This included dynamic gradients of many sorts. And nanoscale fields. search “neutron acceleration” and “neutron deceleration” to see people have not ignored the need to control and use neutrons. There are a thousand times that many people working on

Comment on CTBTO web pages – Infrasound and Gravity

CTBTO Webmaster, VDEC contact: I did a screen clip of the page at ctbto.org/specials/vdec/  You can see that it is overlaying text over text.  I highlighted the overlay and could sort of read it.  I found the “here” to find the VDEC application form.  I changed the magnification of the page but that just makes

Trying to suggest better ways to use live webcams, Contact Form limited

WMAC Trentham Camera 1 Live Stream I came across your live webcam at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjYnPVzwYbk Wellington Model Aeroplane Club, Radio control aircraft and multirotors (drones) at https://wmac.org.nz/ Please put a link to your organization below in the description. Also tilt the camera up and show the sky not that roof. It is OK to have tilt.

Compressible Euler equations for the vacuum, comments and suggestions

https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Geng-Chen-21 Large solutions for compressible Euler equations http://people.ku.edu/~g828c364/application/Euler.pdf Geng Chen, “compressible Euler equations” shows up on the Internet 109,000 places.  There are hundreds of variations of that term and related models.  I try to find and classify and organize everything on the Internet. “euler” “compressible” “vacuum” “gravitational” has 134,000 entry points “euler” “physical vacuum” has

Comment on Live YouTube video of Meteor echoes

LIVE Radio Meteor Echoes Stream from Scotland Looking at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaNkjWkpOdE Should it say “MegaHertz”? not “Hz” Just searching for “radio meteor echoes” I see 60 MHz and 50 MHz. 3.5 MHz, 29 MHz, 1300 MHz, 1.98 MHz, 143.05 MHz. Seems like “it depends” but no one has written it down in a concise rule book.

Comment on Houston Astronomical Society Star Parties – Elon Musk All Sky Cameras

Steve and Amelia Goldberg, If Houston Astronomical Society (HAS) would share recordings online, then star parties can be continuous and world wide. Soon, in human terms, there will be people observing from the far side of the moon and from Mars. So I hope Houston Astronomical Society will be a world leader in online community

Archiving and Sharing lossless sky data for all the people on earth

Dominic, I spoke to Chuck Allen, vice president of the Astronomical League, yesterday — https://www.astroleague.org/al/general/contact.html “The Astronomical League is composed of over two hundred and forty (280 now) local amateur astronomical societies from all across the United States.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astronomical_League (pretty thin description) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_astronomical_societies We talked almost an hour about the growth of Internet sharing (I

Thank you to Jonathan at Bangor University for Reference Image

The Grid:  https://csee.bangor.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/regular-grid-random-colours.png Jonanthan, Bangor University: https://csee.bangor.ac.uk/cy/project-rainbow/create-a-coloured-grid-in-processing/ Jonathan, Thank you. I was working on a simple camera calibration and needed a good target. Your random colored grid made a great clear image. Correcting the camera colors, positions and intensities is much easier with a quantitative reference. The only suggestion I have is to also have the Javascript
