The Internet is a mess. It encourages duplication, falsification, and excludes more than it includes.

Hi, Ann O’Keeffe. I am titling this “The Internet is a mess. It encourages duplication, falsification, and excludes more than it includes.” In the last 30 years I must have said to myself, a few million times, “Why are there so many topics where people all over the globe work on them, but never ALL

Cream Cheese, Jalapenos and the future of the human species

Cream Cheese, Jalapenos and the future of the human species I am trying to reduce my use of butter, so rather than making toast with butter I used cream cheese today. Since I am curious about the health value of foods as a topic on the Internet, I decided to add diced jalapenos. Then, because

Thermodynamic Clocks – Time reversible systems, quality, gravitational detectors, solar system coordination

Shawn, Thank you for thinking of me, and sharing. The gravitational energy density (and the usually much smaller magnetic, electric and thermodynamic energy densities) control the rate of chemical, atomic and nuclear events at any location.  The most often used phenomena are “gravitational time dilation”, “relativistic or general relativistic corrections (from velocity and gravity)”.  An

Comment on The 49 dollar, 500 WattHour eBike Battery video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FwA_s9Ovxc You talk about motivations for watching and DIY at about minute 14. The reason I am watching is I have a lifetime of learning how things work, what they can do, and how to put them into different combinations. Often the off-the-shelf parts don’t fit, or are overkill or too expensive. Mostly they just

Comment on Figma video – make your own interactive global forum, let everyone use it for free

How we Jam: FigJam for Designers at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoCRiAWNEYI You took an interactive and collaborative environment and transferred it to a one way only, no feedback format when you put this on YouTube. You should have Figma be able to talk to the whole Internet (about 4.8 billion with some access) and then listen and let

Calibrating and documenting all images and videos on the Internet – Half Sky and All Sky Cameras

Facebook AllSky group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/172438633343696 I have found thousands of live web cameras on the Internet. Here is one that has stars often – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mb2ZzwShJog I saved a screen print of the whole page when found good stars. Then I opened that in an image viewer and clipped the sky. I went to https://nova.astrometry.net/upload and

Comments and questions for Facebook InTheSkyOrg and In-The-Sky.Org

https://www.facebook.com/intheskyorg/ All the material you post here. Is it also on your website? Can you index and organize it? If you post the same item several times, can you keep things together? You have good tools on your site, but they can be improved. There is no standard best practices form for easy and traceable

Comment on Flywheel energy storage experiment video

Electrical tests! | 2 Mechanical Battery by Black Sahara at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiOf_-0aFP8 I like what you are doing or I would not comment. Please get a stand for your camera. Learn to solder. Learn to use sound card oscilloscopes and spreadsheets. Keep up the great work!! Thanks for the videos!! Put a “support” “donate” button somewhere.

Post on the Facebook “Allsky Camera” group about satellite transits of star and other things

https://www.facebook.com/groups/172438633343696 Dear Allsky, I went through over a thousand live webcams on the Internet to see what people are sharing live now. My estimate is somewhere around 10,000 overall. Many of them have half sky (show half the image with sky) and in those they will capture comets, meteors, satellites, stars, planets, planes and many

Solar system colonization – needs and opportunities, “working globally” becomes “working solar system wide”

With LEDs going to lower and lower energies, moving electrons is probably less expensive than digging holes and trying to concentrate the rather thin light on Mars. I was gathering what groups and resources are needed to send small nuclear packages to Mars to provide the energy needed. The old dream of atomic energy was
