November 18th, 2016

Welcome.

There are only six more Fridays left in 2016.

Use them wisely!

And now: the links!

The Roaring Twenties

“An interactive exploration of the historical soundscape of New York City” (in the 1920’s)

A cool project to support the book The Soundscape of Modernity.

Suggested by the podcast 99% Invisible.

QuickDraw

QuickDraw

“Can a neural network learn to recognize doodles? See how well it does with your drawings and help teach it, just by playing.”

A pretty fun guessing game (for the computer.) Amazing.

Inside AirBNB

A really well-made map-based view into how AirBNB is being used in Los Angeles (only.)

There is a LOT of data here. Well presented. Interesting.

Monster Milktruck!

Drive a milk truck across roads supplied by Google Earth satellite imagery.

The gravity is a little weird so I ended up flying quite a bit. Still fun.

Bonus Link!

Airports Furthest From Their Cities

[self explanatory]

Almost all of them in Europe. (No shout out for Vancouver?)

And so there we go, hey? All done, riiiight?

Thanks for following along at home.

Happy Friday!
