The Charlotte Airport digital art...

As I travel around I get to see some really interesting things. Those giant LED displays most airports use to sell advertising have been thoughtfully re-invented with an inventive twist.  These led blocks - and they are large - have been programmed to display airport data.  Data Sculpture and Data Painting... what an interesting idea!  The data is real operational numbers that are processed at the airport during the day, so they change as the flights and flight operations change...

4.4 Million people come through CLT every year.  These data driven artistic displays take flight landings, takeoffs, luggage movement and gate changes to name a few things and drive algorithms that swirl, twist, stir, emerge, billow and throw blocks of shapes in ways that change organically as the airport "lives."

Happy Thanksgiving everybody, I my hopes for your happiness and health.

Fall has come again...

First Boy Scout Camp near Hudson - we stumbled upon this memorial on a lovely fall day.  Later that evening we enjoyed a great concert with Divina and the Vagabonds.

I don't know what it was about last weekend

But I saw three Bald Eagles - big and magestic

On a flight from Waterloo to Northern Wisconsin we flew over this farm.  I've never seen support for a politician like this before.  I mean real, genuine grass roots support!
That's all for now!
