Did you ever wonder why phone numbers are seven numerals long? Or why the idea agile (e.g. scrum) team size is 7-12 people? I just came across an article is referenced in a couple of books I've read recently:
And finally, what about the magical number seven? What about the seven wonders of the world, the seven seas, the seven deadly sins, the seven daughters of Atlas in the Pleiades, the seven ages of man, the seven levels of hell, the seven primary colors, the seven notes of the musical scale, and the seven days of the week? What about the seven-point rating scale, the seven categories for absolute judgment, the seven objects in the span of attention, and the seven digits in the span of immediate memory? For the present I propose to withhold judgment. Perhaps there is something deep and profound behind all these sevens, something just calling out for us to discover it. But I suspect that it is only a pernicious, Pythagorean coincidence.
This is just great. Stevie Wonder performs a version of Sesame Street on the show circa 197[?]. Killer.

Friday night was Radiohead with Eric. It was, how you say, incredible. Very dramatic without being too pretentious. Watching the band in Berkeley's Greek Theatre one couldn't help but feel like we were witnessing he show of the year...the summer fog pouring in just in time to dance with the stage laser lights. I've got a recording of the tour for those that are jonesing. Drop me a line and I'll help a brother (or sister) out.
It's like Flickr for the blackmail crowd. It's Extortr.

What do yo get when you cross indie filmmakers with local travel experts and the interweb? Probably something that looks a lot like this. I'm headed to NYC next week for a the day and hope to take advantage of what seems to be a pretty robust NYC Metro section. I hope to report my findings back to you, my occasionally loyal readership.
