Spotted this over on College Humor. I never realised, but for the opening of Back to the Future 2 they reshot the ending of Back to the Future 1 to tie the 2 movies together. The most noticeable difference has to be the haircuts!

Spotted this over on BoingBoing, and thought it was suitably geeky to post. A pentatonic scale is a musical scale with 5 pitches per octave in contrast to a heptatonic (7 note) scale such as the standard major scale. What’s interesting about the pentatonic scale is it seems to be pretty much universally ingrained on the  brain, and is common across many many forms of music throughout the world. And Bobby McFerrin has an rather interesting way of demonstrating this to an audience.

Scott's Walkman Trail

Scott's Walkman Trail

BBC have a great article where they took away a 13yr old boy’s iPod, and gave him a classic Sony Walkman instead.

Born in 1996 (the year i graduated… i feel so old…) this was pretty much the first time young Scott Campbell had needed to deal with old analogue technology, particularly the staple of my youth, the humble home audio tape, producing my favourite remark from the article:

“It took me three days to figure out that there was another side to the tape.”

kids today…

I first stumbled across the Improv Everywhere guys when they did their ‘freeze frame’ at Grand Central Station. In their latest experiments they’ve been cordinating large groups by getting them to download an mp3 file, meet in a location, and all start the mp3 at a designated time. You can find more on Improv Everywhere at www.improveverywhere.com.

Thanks to my programming friend Rich at Satechs for sending me the link. :)
