Wish I was a Kellogg’s Corn Flake
Floating in my bowl, taking movies
Simon and Garfunkel, Punky’s Dilemma
Take a look at what Dr Curtis Ebbesmeyer does for a living. A retired oceanographer, he studies flotsam. I was reading about the flotilla of rubber ducks heading Britain’s way after they confounded earlier predictions and made it through the Garbage Patch. Apparently they’re due for landfall here any moment.
And it made me wonder. What if these ducks had had GPS? How much more information would we have gained?
We are heading towards a world where GPS-ed plastic ducks are part of the wisdom of crowds.
