Jim was the first person I know to mention meteorologist Jeff Masters, who I've followed ever since (like, almost 20 years).
At the end of the month Dr. Masters is leaving his company Weather Underground, which was absorbed by the Weather Channel and then IBM (!) and will be blogging at Scientific American.
It's the weekend...

anybody ever go to the jane hotel? saw some comedy-type monologue show interspersed with a couple of songs last night. couple of the performer were good including the one i went to see, others not so much. but i was fortunate to get one of the last seats in the balcony though it was on a low couch and i had to spy the acts through the ironwork railing and occasionally fronds from a large plant. place definitely has a wes anderson vibe only slightly creepier. the room was cool though. here it is on its best day bathed in natural light. probably 25% shabbier in reality which is fine by me.
whats this place go for? 2, 300 grand?
