I just saw this on my Twitter feed, via @doctorow: on-board video of a quadcopter buzzing a Norwegian moose. Let’s all reflect on that for a moment: there was a moose, in the woods, and it was buzzed by a remote-controlled quadcopter. This is the modern world, people. It’s like something out of a Charlie Stross novel.
This next thing doesn’t involve a moose, but I’ll mention it anyway. My friend Emily Mah recently posted an audio recording of an interview we did for Black Gate this past summer. Emily and I were in the same writing critique group for several years before she and her family moved to a foreign country. It was a fun interview, even if she spilled the beans about the greatest writing project in the history of literature: Vlad Jetpack.
This next thing also doesn’t involve a moose, but it’s still pretty cool that Iceberg Ink enjoyed The Coldest War quite a bit. And, following up on my previous post, Pat of Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist has released his list of Hottie Awards. Hooray!
And finally (and also not moose-related), Richard from GiantSizeGeek brought this to my attention: a DIY transcranial direct current stimulation kit. That makes the SECOND consumer tDCS rig I’ve seen in the past year. (I’ve posted about tDCS a few times, and even mentioned this on the Orbit blog this summer.)
I realize I might have overhyped this blog post when I said it contained a few moose. I don’t want to get bogged down in semantics, but that was, in a technical sense, a “lie.”
