Lightmapping…

A special light painting tool displays radiation levels in real-time at the gates of a ruined church in Starye Bobovichi, Russia.  Here white light shows contamination levels up to 0.23uSv/h, while orange highlights elevated levels – from 0.50uSv/h to 0.85uSv/h around the gates.  30 years after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the schoolyard still contains areas of elevated radiation levels.

This is incredibly useful and absolutely stunning…

Photographer Greg McNevin overlaid measurement graphs on images to visualize the amount of radioactivity in Chernobyl.

This is a perfect example of the power of data visualization. It makes complex things visible. This has so many uses for other parts of the world and situations (gas leaks).

Can’t wait to see what he does next.

Reflections…

Life is busy. Regardless of your profession. Saying your “Busy” has become a status symbol which takes aways from our abilities to pause, reflect, and gain clarity.

I’m taking some much needed time (in bed mind you) to reflect on the past several years, as I’ve been caught up in the whirlwind of work and schedules. This reflection doesn’t mean I’m dwelling on the past, but rather, I’m seeking inspiration for the future.

Friends:

It’s imperative that we make the time to separate ourselves from work to enjoy our friends, family, and significant others. It’s a constant struggle to make the time but it’s important. Afterall, these people give me strength, encouragement, and make me laugh. A computer screen and a pay check can’t replace this.
