Planning trips, wave is invaluable. I'm an avid rock climber, and I used wave to constantly update people on trips, and used interactive maps to plan them (the map feature is arguably Wave's best gadget).
I also use wave to keep action item, backburner, and reference lists for myself and my business partner.
Lastly, I attempted to use wave instead of a forum on my website. It would've been great, but no one fucking knew what it was. In my opinion, wave's failure was a marketing one, not technical.
Lastly, it's more convenient for collaborative creative content generation than any other tool. The slashdot community, believe it or not, is the opposite of Wave's target market.
I hope Google has a replacement brewing for my purposes.
The Forever War is one of my favorite SciFi novels - I'm pumped for the movie. Now, if only they'd make Ender's Game...
The companies and senior FCC aides have been holding private meetings since June over the regulations, known as net neutrality rules, according to disclosure statements on the agency’s website. Issues include the extent of FCC power over Internet service providers, and whether phone and cable companies can favor some traffic, such as making their own videos run faster.
Art Brodsky says that the FCC is playing a dangerous game of "lets make a deal" If you are an Application Service Provider or sell SaaS, or are a Web 2.0 company, any threat to net neutrality is a threat to your business model. If you have an opinion about net neutrality, now is the time to make yourself heard. Note — comments to the FCC or any other regulatory agency are considered public records and will be made available to the public."
I'd like to know how low in latitude the Auroras reached - I'm around 44degrees north, and after seeing them once before, I'd travel quite a distance to view them, as long as I can make it to work tomorrow...
Damned weather systems are making things difficult, though.
Also, I'm interested in how high the Kp index needs to be for Auroras to be highly visible at my latitude. I went to school in Potsdam, NY, and was lucky enough to see a spectacular display right overhead one late fall night during finals week... spectacular enough for me to lose even more sleep while crunching for a final exam.
