Interesting times. I’m in San Francisco on Ribbit work, and it looks like I might be here for some time, thanks to the fallout from the Icelandic volcanic eruptions. I’m scheduled to fly out Tuesday, let’s see what happens. No point fretting about what I cannot change.
There’s always a bright side. Like finding out that the hashtag for related incidents is #ashtag. Or discovering this site, flightradar24, which plots the positions of all planes in the air, identifying each plane by its callsign. Blue crosses are airports. Yellow planes are … you guessed it.
I love sunrises and sunsets and crepuscular time as well. I was hoping that people would post photographs of tonight’s sunset as seen from Northern Europe, and I wasn’t disappointed. Thank you Bram.
There’s more. Just take a look at the flickr group here:
I found this photograph hauntingly beautiful. Maybe it’s the jet lag. But I loved it. Thank you Steingrimur.
Wondering why there’s flight disruption in the UK and Scandinavia? Here’s why.
What intrigues me is that the photographs were uploaded nearly a week ago. What happened in between? Do volcanic eruptions of this sort sometimes decide “No, we won’t spew forth any ash”?
I felt certain that flickr would have photographs of the event. The world of Now is not just about Twitter. It’s about the web. About all of us.
Thank you Steingrimur.
