Last friday I taped an iPhone to my head and ran around Paris capturing the most famous sights in a single (somewhat shaky) shot. Here's the video: http://vimeo.com/12906858
Screen shot 2010-06-28 at 6.40.07 PM.png
*spot reserved for a later comment* - Micah from iPhone
Now we know what that 94 minute video was. :) - NOT THE CRICKET
that explain other FF posts, looking for tapes and where can one upload large video files ;-). - Tzury Bar Yochay
Yeah, I never did get the duct tape though, so I had to use clear packaging tape instead (with a sock stuffed between the iPhone and my hat to get the correctish angle). - Paul Buchheit
Patent it NOW - Josh Haley
Well, this is just genius! - Eric - It's My Thing
When you said you ran you weren't speaking metaphorically. - Eric - It's My Thing
Very Cool Paul! - Jeff P. Henderson
great and inspiring - Nenko Ivanov
this was perfect, I opened up my Paris map and followed you :) - İpek Aral
I'm surprised you were able to follow. I didn't have a map (my iPhone was taped to my head!) so I made a number of wrong turns, though the high-level route was pretty basic. - Paul Buchheit
Saw the vimeo on your stream and watched a little of it. Great stuff! Cool to see new iphone vid quality. (er 3gs? quality, hmm) Oh yeah, and enjoy Paris! - Jay
It's actually a 3GS, not an iphone 4. - Paul Buchheit
I think I might tape a photo of Paul with an iPhone taped to his head to my head because I want to get arrested for being a menace. - Akiva
You can fit an iPad on my forehead. - Josh Haley
Ahhh this explains the "ducktape in Paris" stuff LOL :D (that picture is full of geeky win!) - Susan Beebe
@Paul just curious how much battery did you have left after you were done recording? - BRҰANSAҰS
Something like 22%, as I recall. I had put the phone in airplane mode to reduce wireless consumption and also because I'm concerned that an incoming call would stop the video or something. - Paul Buchheit
Not bad. I guess you could get at least 2 hours of recording on one charge. - BRҰANSAҰS from BuddyFeed
Nice idea, OP - LANjackal
this is definitely on the list of 'quirkiest things ever done with an iPhone'. :-) - Olivia Lovag

I hope this isn't the start of a "people walk around cities w/smartphones taped to their hats" trend. - rönin

If so, it'll just be transitional until smartphones are replaced by glasses-phones. Or smart glasses. Do we have an official name for those yet? - Andrew C (✔)

Forthcoming: Grammatical theory: From transformational grammar to constraint-based approaches
"This book introduces formal grammar theories that play a role in current linguistics or contributed tools that are relevant for current linguistic theorizing (Phrase Structure Grammar, Transformational Grammar/Government & Binding, Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical Functional Grammar, Categorial Grammar, Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Construction Grammar, Tree Adjoining Grammar). The key assumptions are explained and it is shown how the respective theory treats arguments and adjuncts, the active/passive alternation, local reorderings, verb placement, and fronting of constituents over long distances. The analyses are explained with German as the object language." - Maitani

Dancing Plague of 1518 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...
Dancing Plague of 1518 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The Dancing Plague (or Dance Epidemic) of 1518 was a case of dancing mania that occurred in Strasbourg, Alsace (then part of the Holy Roman Empire) in July 1518. Numerous people took to dancing for days without rest, and, over the period of about one month, some of those affected died of heart attack, stroke, or exhaustion." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"The outbreak began in July 1518, when a woman, Frau Troffea, began to dance fervently in a street in Strasbourg. This lasted somewhere between four to six days. Within a week, 34 others had joined, and within a month, there were around 400 dancers. Some of these people eventually died from heart attacks, strokes, or exhaustion." - Amit Patel

[1410.5401] Neural Turing Machines - http://arxiv.org/abs/1410.5401
"We extend the capabilities of neural networks by coupling them to external memory resources, which they can interact with by attentional processes. The combined system is analogous to a Turing Machine or Von Neumann architecture but is differentiable end-to-end, allowing it to be efficiently trained with gradient descent. Preliminary results demonstrate that Neural Turing Machines can infer simple algorithms such as copying, sorting, and associative recall from input and output examples." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Another month, another global heat record broken - http://bigstory.ap.org/article...
"WASHINGTON (AP) — September brought more record heat globally, and meteorologists say Earth is now on pace to tie for the hottest year ever recorded. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Monday that last month the globe averaged 60.3 degrees Fahrenheit. That was the hottest September in 135 years of record keeping. It was the fourth monthly record set this year, along with May, June and August. The first nine months of 2014 have a global average temperature of 58.72 degrees, tying with 1998 and 2010 for the warmest first nine months on record. While parts of the U.S. Midwest, Russia and central Africa were slightly cool in September, it was especially hotter than normal in the U.S. West, Australia, Europe, northwestern Africa, central South America and parts of Asia." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Philosophy Monkey: Steven Pinker - Linguistics as a Window to Understand the Brain
"One of the things I first enjoyed when I was introduced to philosophy was its recursive nature: we could use thought to investigate the nature, the rules, the structure and the limits of thought itself (and what that could tell us about the human mind). For a very similar reason I have a certain appreciation and fondness for linguistics. Most of our communication takes place through language, and linguists are hard at work trying to understand what they can about human cognition, nature and culture, by paying close attention to the way in which we use language." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"In the following lecture, Steven Pinker provides a fascinating introduction to questions such as how syntax (the study of linguistic structure), phonology (the study of sound), semantics (the study of meaning) and pragmatics (the study of the social and cultural role and context of language), all help us to understand how language works. He also provides a lesson on the nature of the... more... - Maitani

Linguistic necromancy: a guide for the uninitiated | OUPblog - http://blog.oup.com/2014...
Linguistic necromancy: a guide for the uninitiated | OUPblog
"It’s fairly common knowledge that languages, like people, have families. English, for instance, is a member of the Germanic family, with sister languages including Dutch, German, and the Scandinavian languages. Germanic, in turn, is a branch of a larger family, Indo-European, whose other members include the Romance languages (French, Italian, Spanish, and more), Russian, Greek, and Persian." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Being part of a family of course means that you share a common ancestor. For the Romance languages, that mother language is Latin; with the spread and then fall of the Roman empire, Latin split into a number of distinct daughter languages. But what did the Germanic mother language look like? Here there’s a problem, because, although we know that language must have existed, we don’t have any direct record of it." - Maitani
"The earliest Old English written texts date from the 7th century AD, and the earliest Germanic text of any length is a 4th-century translation of the Bible into Gothic, a now-extinct Germanic language. Though impressively old, this text still dates from long after the breakup of the Germanic mother language into its daughters." - Maitani

Where do American and Mooser rank respectively on the ethnocentrism index -- the number of times one mentions one's ethnic identity, issues, problems, conflicts and enemies? That's all you need to know about this subject. It's all about several thousand years of extreme ethnocentrism (often expressed as ethnic or ethno-religious nationalism). Some people are much more ethnocentric than others -- some people even make a messianic religion out of their self-obsessed ethnocentrism. - Sean McBride
lol-- Mooser keeps trying to get something out of me that he can condemn and wont accept my honesty about my views which I describe and admit are just my views, not expert opinion. He seems to want me to either totally 'condemn the Jews or totally 'capitulate to the or his Jewish view. - American
Hummmm...where do I rank on the ethnocentrism scale? I would say pretty low most of the time .Lately in keeping with my new theory of 'desensitizing' the Jewish - Gentile enemies thing I have been using my gentile hat to describe how we see certain Jews or certain statements made by Jews just to see if any commenters object to it -so far no one has...except Mooser that is. - American
Quite low, overall. Mooser, extremely high -- in fact, it is his only topic of interest. - Sean McBride
Sometimes one gets the impression that Jewishness is the condition of being recursively preoccupied with being Jewish -- it's not a religious or secular issue -- more a psychological issue. - Sean McBride

"When two friends created the site I Can Has Cheezburger?, in 2007, to share cat photos with funny, misspelled captions, it was a way of cheering themselves up. They probably weren’t thinking about long-term sociolinguistic implications. But seven years later, the “cheezpeep” community is still active online, chattering away in lolspeak, its own distinctive variety of English. lolspeak was meant to sound like the twisted language inside a cat’s brain, and has ended up resembling a down-South baby talk with some very strange characteristics, including deliberate misspellings (teh, ennyfing), unique verb forms (gotted, can haz), and word reduplication (fastfastfast).

Bill Maher Isn’t a ‘Politically Incorrect’ Liberal, He’s Just a Bigot - https://firstlook.org/theinte...

At some point, Bill Maher jumped the shark. - Sean McBride
Bill Maher has been using libertarianism and liberalism as a cover to promote his real agenda -- neoconservatism and Likud Zionism. Many of us were taken in by the scam for quite some time. He's clever, but too much drug use has apparently made him incautious -- he's fully out of the closet. - Sean McBride
Bill Maher is a militant Jewish nationalist who hates Christians and Muslims. End of story. He is basically a Kahanist who specializes in especially vicious hate speech against his ethnic enemies. Forget about the liberalism and libertarianism -- that's a sham. - Sean McBride
