memorial day weekend:

In honor of Memorial Day I had planned to read an article in Wired Magazine, the one with Heroes' Masi Oka on the cover. The article: "Escape from Iran: Inside a CIA Covert Op."

But as you know, the Best Laid Plans...

Instead, I read about a Green City/Urban Development project near Shanghai, on the island Dongtan, by ARUP's Chilean architech and Urban Designer Alejandro Gutierrez.

Like a PBS show about a subject you know little about, it open my eyes to the problems of Urban Planning. A good Article, from one of "My Favorites" magazine.

I also did a bit of Online Programming Study on Python's number and list handling ideas.

And speaking about numbers, Jack Sparrow (aka Johnny Depp) took care of business on the holiday weekend with these numbers:

The Top Five

#1 "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" ($142 million)
#2 "Shrek the Third" ($69 million)
#3 "Spider-Man 3" ($18 million)
#4 "Bug" ($4.2 million)
#5 "Waitress" ($4 million)
