Broooooklyn

November 26, 2012

The Brooklyn Nets won the first NBA battle for New York against the Knicks in the new Barclays Center. So many fun things about this:

– Hearing the crowd chant “Brooooklyn”

– Watching it on TV and seeing the going to commercial shots of Brooklyn and thinking, “that’s my neighborhood”.

– Quality NBA hoops 5 blocks from my place.

– Quality sports in Brooklyn period.

– Seeing Beyonce in the stands

Seriously, it’s all good.

Sales are up 800% today…


Tech to the rescue–sort of

This web site showing gas stations in the Sandy affected area that actually have gas is really cool.

Though as of right now, it’s still a depressingly small number.

Seriously, this is Mars

I still think we are all a bit blasé about the fact that we have a rover on Mars sending us back high res pictures of itself and Mars.

This is crazy cool stuff.
