The Internet was invented in 1934 (sorta)

The Internet was invented in 1934 (sorta) | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
Forget Al Gore....

 

The Internet — at least as a concept — was invented nearly a century ago by a Belgian information expert named Paul Otlet imagining where telephones and television might someday go.

 

That was one of the topics in a wild discussion on the history of the Internet, and its future, at the recent World Science Festival in New York City.

 

The unofficial guest of honor at the panel was Vinton Cerf, know universally as the "Father of the Internet" for co-inventing its fundamental technology, a system for routing packets of data around the globe called TCP/IP. Working on a U.S. Military project called ARPAnet starting in the 1960s, Cerf and colleagues developed the tech that would eventually become the Internet that dominates our lives today. 

 

But panel member Alex Wright, who heads up the "user experience" team at The New York Times, reminded the audience that the ideas leading to the Internet have been around a lot longer. (Wright is also the author of the book "Glut: Mastering Information Through the Ages.")

A runner fell in front of her, she picked her up, and she did not think twice about it. At least two people caught the act on video, and it went viral. This was Saturday.

 

On Sunday, scores of new Facebook friends messaged Vogel that she was a hero.

Meaningful, thoughtful interview with Ravi Shankar's daughter, Anoushka

Meaningful, thoughtful interview with Ravi Shankar's daughter, Anoushka | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
Legendary sitarist and daughter of Ravi Shankar performs live at New York's City Winery

 

There was a time when Anoushka Shankar’s music fell under her father’s shadow — how could it not, when you play the sitar and your father, Ravi Shankar, just happens to be the most famous sitar master in the world?

 

But Anoushka has established herself as an extraordinary musician in her own right, with her own distinct voice. In London she recently won the Songlines Music Award for Best Artist of 2012. Her new album, “Traveller,” finds her exploring the common roots of Indian classical music and Spanish flamenco. She says the technical challenges were formidable, but the music explodes with an intensity that makes it all sound natural — and beautiful.

 

And as she explains to SOUND TRACKS reporter Arun Rath, she managed to get it all done through the pregnancy and birth of her first child, who now travels with her on tour.

Tired Of Mowing Your Lawn? Try Foodscaping It Instead : NPR

When the economy began its steep decline in 2008, almost everything related to housing hit the skids, including the lawn and garden industry. But one sector escaped the pinch: food gardening.

 

In fact, food gardening sales nationwide have spiked 20 percent since then, and they've stayed there. While many households started growing food to be more budget-conscious, some are deciding vegetables and fruits can be beautiful, too.

 

In the extreme, edible landscaping or foodscaping can even mean replacing grass with something edible. For Jeremy Lekich of Nashville Foodscapes, the world is already his salad bar.

WATCH: Anne Hathaway Dreams A Dream In 'Les Miserables'

WATCH: Anne Hathaway Dreams A Dream In 'Les Miserables' | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
"Les Miserables," director Tom Hooper's large-scope follow-up to "The King's Speech," is a star-studded affair, but only one marquee player gets center stage in the film's first teaser: Anne Hathaway.

 

If Hathaway's version of "I Dreamed A Dream" sounds raw, that's because Hooper reportedly had the actors sing their performances live on set, a tactic rarely done on big-screen musicals, which allow many singing performances to be fixed and tweaked in post-production.

 

Watch the trailer above; "Les Miserables" arrives in theaters on Dec. 14.

The Antikythera Mechanism - 2D

More than 21 centuries ago, a mechanism of fabulous ingenuity was created in Greece, a device capable of indicating exactly how the sky would look for decades to come -- the position of the moon and sun, lunar phases and even eclipses. But this incredible invention would be drowned in the sea and its secret forgotten for two thousand years.

This video is a tribute from Swiss clock-maker Hublot and film-maker Philippe Nicolet to this device, known as the Antikythera Mechanism, or the world's "first computer". The fragments of the Mechanism were discovered in 1901 by sponge divers near the island of Antikythera. It is kept since then at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, Greece.

For more than a century, researchers were trying to understand its functions. Since 2005, a pluridisciplinary research team, the "Antikythera Mechanism Research Project", is studying the Mechanism with the latest high tech available.

The results of this ongoing research has enabled the construction of many models. Amongst them, the unique mechanism of a watch, designed by Hublot as a tribute to the Mechanism, is incorporating the known functions of this mysterious and fascinating ancient Mechanism.

A model of the Antikythera Mechanism, built by the Aristotle University in Greece, together with the mechanism of the watch and this film in 3D are featuring in an exhibition about the Mechanism that is taking place in Paris, at the Musée des Arts et Métiers.

Israël, la terre promise des séries

Israël, la terre promise des séries | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
Malgré l’exiguïté de son marché, Israël produit de brillantes séries. Une effervescence due à la créativité des auteurs et à un public sensibilisé au drame quotidien.

 

Israel, Jordan on the future Hollywood? The question does not seem so farfetched. Since the success of American adaptations of the series Be Tipul and Hatufim , respectively psychoanalytic In analysis and paranoid Homeland (an American ex-prisoner of war in Iraq, is suspected of working for Al-Qaeda), the eyes are on the Israeli production.

 

The Series Mania festival in Paris recently allowed to shed light on a generation unfamiliar with VO. At first glance, it resembles other: there is the political satire ( Polishuk Minister and his little clumsy lost in the intricacies of government), from melodrama to make you cry in the cottages ( The "A" Word and his autistic kid music lover ) or even a Lost Local ( Pillars of Smoke , being transposed U.S. for NBC).

"The Israeli public is bored easily"

 

The scale is yet different. "The market is small, the budgets are minimal: the pilot of Homeland costs as much as two seasons Hatufim! " says Gideon Raff, creator-writer-producer of both series, invited by Series Mania.

Shakespeare's first theater discovered under London pub

Workers renovating the area behind a London pub found something they definitely weren't looking for: the remains of Shakespeare's first theater.

 

The Curtain, which predates the more famous Globe Theatre, was opened in 1577and likely hosted the first performances of popular English class assignments "Romeo and Juliet" and "Henry V." The Curtain was home to Shakespeare's acting company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men, until the Globe was opened.

 

The location of the Curtain was lost by historians shortly after. "I love the fact that we are excavating London, and slowly clearing away the miserable piles of Victoriana and Empire," Dominic Dromgoole, the Globe's current artistic director said, "And revealing the wild, anarchic and joyous London which is lurking beneath."

Mars One plans human colonization of Mars by April 2023

Mars One plans human colonization of Mars by April 2023 | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
While we dream about living or visiting a Martian planet, Mars One is executing the most ambitious privately funded space mission yet. The company has set a deadline for April 2023, the month that a human being will first set foot onto Mars.

 

With NASA’s budget cut, privatized space travel has become the next frontier for wealthy businessmen with dreams of becoming the real-life Tony Stark. Among the dreamers, there are some that are acting out on loftier ambitions. Forget the moon; the team from the Mars One project is setting out to make the colonization of Mars a reality.


The private Dutch company Mars One has set an ambitious deadline for the first permanent Mars colony: April 2023. For those who opt to settle on Mars, there will be no turning back. Their residence on the dusty planet would be permanent, although every two years, the established colony would welcome new residents, thereby slowly growing the Mars-based community.


Mars One initially plans to send over four astronauts in a journey that will take a mind-numbing seven months. Come 2033, the program hopes to have over 20 astronauts living on Mars.

Remember when Louis CK was ranting about how everything's awesome and nobody's happy? If you're one of the people who can relate to how far we've come along in the past decade or two, ...

 

Created by Brendan Chilcutt, the site archives a few sounds that might have you nostalgically playing them over and over again. There’s everything from the sound of dialing a rotary telephone to the sound of a floppy drive chugging away.

 

If nothing else, listening to the sound of a screeching modem kicking into high gear will make you eternally grateful for your 24 hour broadband connection, and not having to argue about getting off the Internet so your mother can make a phone call.

 

At the moment, there’s only 15 sounds, which we’ve been obsessively listening to for the past half an hour, so Brendan, can we please have some more?

SFU Pipe Band at New York's Lincoln Center

The Simon Fraser University Pipe Band celebrates its 30th anniversary with a concert at New York City's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, recording as ...

 

There’s been much to celebrate of late within the Vancouver bagpipe community. First, we had the city’s reversal of a ban on piping buskers—with Mayor Gregor Robertson taking the matter to heart, promising via Twitter that “There will be no ban on bagpipes or drums busking in Vancouver — not on my watch!”

 

And on Friday (May 4), the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band performed at the famed Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York, which was recorded as the band’s 11th CD. The performance was followed by a weekend of teaching workshops by the band at Archbishop Molloy high school in Queens, as part of the Highland Arts Festival.

 

According to a news release, Ontario’s Caledonia & District Pipes and Drums band were so keen to meet the SFU pipers that musicians piled into two trucks and drove 10 hours to NYC to take part in a workshop.
