Stats, I AM IN YOU!

We all know about the “I AM IN YOU!” meme started by Wil Wheaton. It is all the rage on Twitter – but how popular is it? And what are all the people “in”?

I pulled tweets with the substring “i am in you” from Sat, 10 Mar 2012 15:28:22 to Mon, 12 Mar 2012 05:27:13 and decided to look into this.

So that’s roughly 38 hours worth of tweets and after removing retweets as best I could and tweets that said “i am in your” or similar stuff that didn’t matter I ended up with 277 tweets.

That’s one checkin every 8 minutes or so. That’s probably somewhat less than what Foursquare gets but still a fair amount.

Below is a table of the results in a totally unsorted way. Obviously there are still some tweets in there that don’t conform to the meme and some retweets I didn’t correctly weed out, but it is still really fun to look at. Now this just needs to get hooked up to Google Maps and I think I could be onto something kinda fun…

Feeling Sophisticated

On our way home the hotel the wife and I decided to stop by the ARoS Art Museum in Aarhus. We had been talking about it for a long time but never got around to it and after a relaxing weekend without any kids it seemed appropriate to finish it off by being sophisticated (or at least pretending to).

The new rainbow thingie at the top of the building is an incredible sight – even if I haven’t got the slightest clue as to what the artist was trying to say with this work. There was also an exhibit where you were walking around in rainbow colored fog with very low visibility. Combine that with a bunch of school kids running around in there and you get quite an exciting experience.

The runaway flip-flop

Don’t expect anything about electronics here – by flip-flop I mean the shoe.

I get home from work on Friday and I notice that the daughter’s flip-flop is looking kind of lonely.

I feel so lonely...

I ask her about it and get the reply “it’s on the roof” as if that’s the most natural thing in the world. She goes on to explain how it got up there and apparently it all makes perfect sense to her but all I am left with are more questions. Kids.

The roof, the roof...

Luckily for me the son is an avid collector of all kinds of stick, twigs and branches so I pick out a nice long stick with a V-shape at the end and lift the flip-flop down from the roof. Yay, dad is a hero!

Together again

Not the most interesting story but it felt absurd when I was in the middle of it, so I had to write it down.

Foo Fighters Concert, Copenhagen 2011-06-21

I went to see Foo Fighters live in concert in Copenhagen yesterday. A great experience that I shared with 17000 other people.

I left from work early to take the train to Copenhagen and the train was filled with other people going to the concert so there was a lot of talk about music and an all-round nice atmosphere.

After getting off the train at the central station in Copenhagen I decided to walk to Refshaleøen where the concert was. It was a pretty long walk so luckily I had decided to walk by the pickup spot for the shuttle buses and one came along just as I got there so I took the bus the rest of the way.

Apparently there were no roads where we were going as the bus dropped us off and we had to walk Lemmings-style along a long marked path.

You can almost hear the Lemmings theme tune

It's somewere behind there

Audience parking

After sitting and waiting for a while we were let in (around five o’clock) and I headed for the inner circle to get a nice spot (which proved to be no problem at all since there were maybe a hundred people in the inner circle when I got there).

Waiting

The empty stage

Then I waited again for Biffy Clyro to get on stage. I had never heard of them before and didn’t really expect much when they took to the stage shirtless (with the exception of one guy wearing a nice shirt and black pants and jacket). I was blown away from the first second. These guys know how to rock. Even without me knowing a single song they had me completely entertained for the hour or so their set lasted. So I am now a Biffy Clyro fan.

Biffy Clyro

After that there was some more downtime while the crew took everything apart and set up the new instruments for The Gaslight Anthem. Another band I had never heard of.

The hard working crew tearing stuff down

The Gaslight Anthem didn’t impress me in the same way as Biffy Clyro had. They are a New Jersey rock band and the lead singer had great charisma and an amazing voice that reminded me a bit of Springsteen. Their music as a whole in fact seemed to me as what Springsteen might sound like if he more of a hard rock edge. It wasn’t until the very last song that I really started to warm up to them. I may have to check out some of their music – I have feeling this is one of those bands that you can get really into after listening to their songs for a while.

The Gaslight Anthem

After The Gaslight Anthem were done with their set the crew got back to get rid of their stuff and unpack the Foo Fighters’ gear (which was all shinier and just nicer then the other bands’ stuff – but I guess that just the way it is). At this point I was honestly thinking that the Foo Fighters would have difficulty delivering the same raw energy that Cliffy Byro.

Foo Fighters took to the stage around nine o’clock, the crowd roared and everyone was blown away by the first four songs played back to back. They continued to deliver a show of amazing quality with a song selection that was pretty much perfect for me. How they managed to keep up the energy level without dropping dead I don’t know.

I sometimes wondered if his head would fly off

I tried to record some small video clips to get a feel for the mood and energy but due to the loudness of the music the sound came out all distorted and useless. So there are only pictures.

The show was over about half past eleven and with all the people there it meant I had to walk quite fast if I wanted to catch the last train home. So I moved (somewhat elegantly) through the crowd and when I got to the shuttle buses I (barely) managed to squeeze into the last one available. However due to all the people pouring out the bus was completely stuck… And time was ticking away. After nearly ten minutes I decided to get out and walk as fast as I could to the central station. Google Maps said I would be 5 minutes late for the train so I picked up the pace a bit more.

By the time I got to the drop-off point for the shuttle buses I was sweating a bit more than I would have liked but at least Google Maps now said I would be at the train with 3 minutes to spare. Not satisfied with this (as I needed time to buy something to drink) I hailed a cab and was at the train station 15 minutes before the train was set to leave. And then it turns out that all the 7-Elevens were closed. What is the point of a 7-Eleven if it closes at midnight? So nothing to drink for me.

I got on the train along with a lot of other people and was fortunate enough to get a seat and I even managed to sleep a bit on the way home.

Got home at six o’clock in the morning, took a shower, helped a little bit with getting the kids ready for school and kindergarten and then crashed in bed for a few hours.

If would definitely go to another Foo Fighters concert – and if Biffy Clyro is ever in the neighborhood I recommend checking them out as well.

Business Cards

The kind folks at Inedo were generous enough to send me a small stack of their Just-In-Time business cards. Now let’s see if I can remember to bring the along with me.

They are a neat idea and hopefully it will give a more personal touch than my standard business cards.

A trip to the circus

The whole family went to see Cirkus Arena and we all had a great time. There were some amazing performers, great shows by the animals, and a funny clown. What more can you want from a circus? The theme was “circus under water” and that combined with skimpy outfits made for a great show for all the dads in the audience – perhaps even bordering on too graphic.

The daughter was amazed by the choreography and gymnastics, the son really liked the animals, the wife pretty much enjoyed everything (combined with the fact that it was something we all did as a family), and I was entertained by every act that had an element of applied physics – and of course the women in the small outfits.

I am not that much into circuses but all in all it was a fun evening.

Blekko Swag

The nice guys and gals at blekko sent me stuff. Trading cards and a t-shirt. Thank you very much. Try out blekko if you haven’t already done so.

Mechanics, computer scientists and project management

This morning I dropped off the old car at the shop and later today I can come and pick up the new car.

When I asked one of the mechanics when I could come by for the new car his first response was “the guy who will be working on your new car isn’t here, so I don’t really know. Let’s go ask the foreman”.

We go ask the foreman who almost immediately says “let’s say 1 o’clock”. As we walk back to the garage the mechanic responsible for the new car walks in and the foreman asks him when I can have my new car. The reply is “now…”. The implication being of course that he has done this so many times before that it practically takes him no time to prep a car.

The foreman goes on to list the various jobs that need to be done for the car to be ready. The mechanic then says “let’s say 12 o’clock, then”.

The foreman turns to me and says “you can pick it up at 1 o’clock”.

I left the shop thinking about all the similarities between this experience and pretty much all projects I have ever been involved with as a computer scientist…

Bad Science

Read Bad Science by Ben Goldacre. A great and accessible book about the problems with homeopaths, nutritionists and journalists being unable to report properly on science stories.

I suck at writing reviews… Just go read it.

New (used) car

Yesterday we signed the papers for our new (used) car. The car will be a Mitsubishi Colt Inform+ Coolpack 1.3 from 2005 that has gone 81.000km. It has just been serviced so we should have two years (or 20.000km – whichever comes first) before we need to have it looked over.

It has an annoying sound coming from the ventilator fan but that will be fixed before we get it. Along with the car we also get a set of winter tires and when we hand in our old car they will move our P-watch to the new car. All at the reasonable price of 75.480DKK.

Hopefully by next Monday we will be driving around in a new car – and pictures will follow by then.
