more than words…

First post!

A few interesting things:

  • The Empire State building is getting retrofitted!
  • I met Adam Bly of Seed Media Group on Tuesday. He is the Founder, CEO, and Editor-in-Chief of SEED magazine.
  • I have rediscovered my love for the song “More than words” by Extreme, but now I also love the version played by Sungha Jung (see below).
  • I’m going to see Jake Shimabukuro on May 3rd when he is coming to NYC.

This blog will be dedicated to musings that are scientific, cultural, technological, political, and really anything else relevant in today’s world. I am a scientist by training, so many of these topics will be approached from that perspective but with an interdisciplinary twist because that is what I like to do.

Being in NYC gives great opportunities to meet people, go to talks and lectures, and generally be out there. I hope to write about those experiences a little and relate them to current events. I’ll also give my opinions and interpretations of things I’ve seen, heard or read.

    They talked a lot about retrofitting buildings at the “Greening the Urban Economy” panel (see next entry). It is interesting because a lot of people working in construction etc. will need more training to make a lot of this happen and there are some programs out there from non-profit orgs trying to help.

    I think the coolest part of the Empire State building article was the photograph of the cooling plant. It reminds me of exploring underground maintenance tunnels back in my undergraduate days.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s in store for this blog in the future!
