Triangle Google+ HIRL309It is 2013 and it is going to be the year of Google+.  We are already seeing an increase in interest so let's get together and talk about it.  The event will be at Johnny Carino's Italian Restaurant in Brier Creek near the Target Greatland.  At the end of lunch the "gurus" will be doing a 5 to 10 minute _speech_ on something to walk away with.  Just being able to try something new in the months of January and February should be worth the price of admission. I hope to see everyone there.  January Triangle Google+ HIRL2013-01-15 11:30:0037

Still not quite your daily-driver, but a promising development nonetheless.

Called Stella Lux, the new vehicle can seat four and has a range of up to 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) on a fully-charged battery pack, according to ElectricAutosport.

Stella Lux
Welcome to the era of solar-powered cars! ;)
A team from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands has built a four-seat, solar-powered car. The team claims it creates more energy over the course of a year than it uses to drive.

The Stella Lux features solar panels on the roof with a redesigned body with an air tunnel through the middle of the car, which helps reduce the amount of energy needed to move forward.
There's also a tube that runs from the front to back that holds the battery cells. 

Stella Lux is also a smart car that is connected to the Internet and uses a custom-built navigation system called the Solar Navigator that enables the driver to select the most energy efficient route or the quickest route.

That rocks!

Prompted by a recent post of +Gary Munroe's, I decided to do a quick search of my personal photo library (https://photos.google.com) for the term "rock" just to see what popped-up.

Well.... you really can't do much better than this when it comes to results, can you?

"The growth of the total amount of solar deployed around the world continues to look exponential, with a growth rate over the last 23 years of 38% per year. Over the last three years it’s slowed to a mere 22% per year. All exponentials become S-curves in the long run. But for now, growth remains rapid, and may indeed accelerate once more as solar prices drop below those of fossil fuel generation and as energy storage plunges in price."

Oh, this is just so hauntingly glorious!!!

Not only is the atmosphere captured here simply marvelous, but the foresight behind the processes that lead to these trees looking like something from some alien word is very very commendable, as well!

This region of forest in Basque country has been harvested for charcoal for many years, not by clearcutting, but by systematic pruning. This has caused the trees to grow with very long, spidery branches, even as the forest itself remains intact – and the resulting setting is haunting. Oskar Zapirain's photos are well worth the look.___Oh, this is just so hauntingly glorious!!!

I occasionally will write a long article. This article is, I have to say, longer than even what I would write. But it explains a tremendous number of really important things extremely clearly: power production and use, the history of cars, how these things all fit together, and how Tesla is trying to change that. There's no way I could give you a useful short summary, because the point of this article is that, by the time you're done reading it, you'll understand all of the things well enough that you can join in very serious conversations about them.

So don't feel compelled to read this at one sitting -- but this is an article you may want to bookmark, and read bit by bit, because by the time you reach the end, you'll have learned a lot.

I like to think that I stay up on the various technologies that would make such a thing possible, but I completely missed this (and it happened back in 2012!).

SolarWorld points the way to solar mobility. In 414 days the solar powered SolarWorld GT traveled a distance of more than 29,000 kilometers (18,020 miles) on its journey around the world 2011/2012. During the trip it not only crossed four continents and 16 countries, but also the equator – twice.

Hilarious!

"The car actually has an electric motor and a microscopically small battery, but they are only used to start the petrol engine – the electric motor does not drive the wheels. The petrol engine then uses a tank full of gasoline, a fossil liquid, to propel the car by exploding small drops of it. It is apparently the small explosions that you hear and feel when the engine is running."

Arcade revenue and CS PhD's, eh?  I buy it!

This is a veritable treasure trove of useless but fun data!

Spurious Correlations is a website that charts interesting correlations between wildly varying datasets. The project is meant to promote empirical research and interest in statistics. So while correlation does not imply causation, the relationship between people drowning in pools and Nicholas Cage film appearances is still eerily similar.

We heard a little about that at the tour I had recently...

p.s. this is to help us sound smart at the BBQ later on today, or when the robots turn off the grid and we haven't for a Tesla battery :P

$3k for a battery system for your home that will supply all your power needs at night, while using solar panels on your roof to generate day power and excess for storage...this is exactly what California and other sunny places need.

Given the low numbers, what do you think are realistic prospects for electric cars in Canada?

It starts with an idea.

Sure, a purely solar-powered car may still be a bit of a pipe-dream at the moment, but if no one's working to overcome the few remaining technical challenges (and, believe me, there really are only a few), it'll never become a reality.

I've been following Electric vehicle and solar-power technology closely for the better part of two decades, and this is one of the few times I've seen someone taking a serious look at marrying the two technologies outside of a University setting, and whether Hanergy has the ability to achieve this goal, their work will surely serve as a stepping-stone to someone who will make it happen.

The Perfect Song

I think I found a song to be played at my funeral pyre ceremony....before I get floated down the river in a viking boat set on fire. Let it then be said that I really loved mashup covers.

My first glimpse of Yosemite.

I only had time to see just a small corner of the park while I was there, and pictures certainly cannot do it justice, but I'm not going to let that stop me from trying....

Well, I'm down to about 4,999 more images left to process...

Due to technical difficulties, I've only been able to process a couple of pictures from my recent vacation, but this one's most certainly a keeper...

The internet is a place of wonder. v2.0

(Representing the complete opposite end of the creative-spectrum from my previous post, perhaps?   ;-) )

How artsy are you?  Very cool - art books from the Met!  Openculture.com also has other free (and great) downloads as well.

I have a small favor to ask...

I'd like to introduce you to +Mark Rosenbauer  

I discovered him just before Christmas over a year ago, and I think he has one of the most amazing voices I've ever heard.  I've gotten to know him a bit through G+, and have learned that he is a fellow Introvert, and that self-promotion is something that does not come naturally to him.  This can, you might imagine, be something of a hinderance in a profession that's probably best well-served by someone a bit more out-going.  

I just saw that he's going to be undergoing spinal-surgery next week, and will have to put his career on hold for a while.  I also happened to notice that he doesn't have much of a following at the moment, so I thought it might be a nice pick-me-up for him during this difficult time to know that his work is appreciated and that he willbe mis... more »

This will be my last recording/video for the foreseeable future. I'll be undergoing spinal surgery on April 14, 2015 for the removal of a "benign" nerve sheath tumour in my lower spine.

Charlie Chaplin's song Smile" has particular resonance for me at this time. This was recorded March 31, 2015.

The  possibility of surgery has been looming for a while but I've been hoping that this would not be the outcome, but alas, I've been told in no uncertain terms by my surgeon, that this is the best time to have it done.

And so it goes...___I have a small favor to ask...

Please, take just a moment to go check out his work.  If you like what you hear, just let him know that; if not, please just move on to the next post in your stream.  He's a very talented and very gracious fellow, and I promise you that it'll be time well-spent.

Here's to wishing you a speedy recovery, Mark!

Administration Staircase, Blue Hour

This image was shot during blue hour inside the Administration Building at the former Hudson River State Hospital in New York. I really do love this staircase. Sadly, blue hour never lasts as long as I would like, so by the time I took the 3 shots necessary for this pano, it was dark and the blue hue was gone.
