Mars So that in 20 years I can look back at this.....I just went downstairs with Oskar and looked at Mars. He was very excited and when Mars was behind a cloud he said "Mars Gone. Wheresit gone?" in his usual cute questioning way.
I also saw it last night 2 mins after it was at its closest.
Maybe its my imagination but the sky looks red tonight and did so last night. I wonder if this has anything to do with Mars?
neuronwave is the personal site of Ben Hosken. I am the founder of Flink Labs, a data visualisation studio based in Melbourne. Previously I founded AgentArts, where I developed a recommendations system that we ultimately sold to MSFT.I have two patents, one in Recommendation Systems and one for a datamining algorithm I invented. I have a strong interest in physical computing, emergence, self organising systems, immersive games, bluetooth ad hoc networks and other fun things.
A while ago I built and ran Blog Change Bot - an AOL IM Bot which notified you when blogs you like are updated. I also built IcyPole, a bluetooth based P2P mobile phone app in 2004. With Suzette, I've built Playground Finder - a community contributed site for parents to find playgrounds nearby and while traveling for their kids to play in. Its a "playground" for my social, location, community and mobile interests.
I live in Melbourne with my wife Suzette, son Oskar Tex and my little girl Jasmine
