in the merry month of may

My same-sex marriage map got some link love from Metafilter (thanks kernelm!) and somethingawful, oddly enough. And twitter, come to think of it. This added up to 225 hits over the past 3 days, which is a lot for me.

I’m not sure why it makes me so excited to see people linking to my stuff – there are no ads on the page, and presumably most people click on it, take a look, think “Neat!” (or “What a piece of crap!”) and move on with their day. I guess it’s a measure of fame or prominence, however slight.

The government just released data.gov which is a collection of parseable data from various government agencies. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of too interesting stuff there yet, but there is a a contest to write a cool app. (the first entrant is FBI Fugitive Concentration!)

The Dallas Cowboy’s new stadium has the world’s largest HD video screen.
