In reply to: Original Big Bird, Caroll Spinney, Leaves ‘Sesame Street’ After Nearly 50 Years - The New York Times

[...]Spinney said, he was originally asked to play as “a funny, dumb country yokel.”

After a few episodes, Spinney made a suggestion to the show’s producers. “I said, I think I should play him like he’s a child, a surrogate,” he recalled. “He can be all the things that children are. He can learn with the kids.”

That had a lasting effect on Big Bird and on “Sesame Street,” where the character came to embody the tender, nurturing soul of the show.


A family friend took a photo of my face that I don't loathe!

Do you write acceptance tests? I write many of them, always using a spreadsheet. I'm curious to see if folks use other methods of capturing test requirements and results, though. A spreadsheet works, but hasn't ever felt like the right tool for this job.

My gut is to use an org file, but my coworkers aren't always on board with emacs nor org-mode.

In reply to: Forests Emerge as a Major Overlooked Climate Factor | Quanta Magazine

But with powerful computer models that can simulate how plants move water, carbon dioxide and other chemicals between ground and air, Swann has found that vegetation can control weather patterns across huge distances. The destruction or expansion of forests on one continent might boost rainfall or cause a drought halfway around the world.

We’ll have to change our behavior as individuals, too. Meaning, we’re looking at unprecedented change, what is essentially the restructuring of civilization.



On our way home from Massachusetts we got to cross a bunch of covered bridges in New Hampshire.

In the face of things like this I really don't know what to do. I get the importance of action, but as an individual I feel powerless.
