Dan Goodman's prediction and politics journal.

Wednesday, April 14, 2004

Wednesday April 14, 2004. This LiveJournal entry by matociquala on writing -- specifically, on getting inside a character's skin and on inpositioning -- was just what I needed. (For definition of inpositioning, see the entry.)

I'd meant to write "Well Met..." from inside the point-of-view character's skin; but I'd gotten distracted by background and plot. So, I started reworking what I'd thought was full first draft. As of now, I have about 700 words of (knock wood) genuine first draft.
There will be more description in that part, but that will come later.

Background detail I hated to give up mentioning: sexual services cooperatives.
spam subject: "First Arabic karaoke in the world" I think this claim is unlikely to be true.

By looking back, scientists see a bright future for climate change
Dake Chen at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and colleagues report in the April 15 issue of the journal Nature that an improved climate model, known as LDEO5, for the first time predicted every major change in the temperature of the tropical Pacific Ocean over the past 150 years with up to two years of advance notice.

Seat by seat subtitles in cinema
A US company is developing a technology for cinemas which could provide subtitles to individuals in different languages or to deaf people on a seat by seat basis. The system can provide text to mini-screens at specific seats. The top part of each personal screen is clear allowing the viewer to watch the film, while the bottom acts as a mirror reflecting subtitled text from a video projector at the back of the theatre.
