I Know Where Your Cat Lives is a data experiment that visualizes a sample of 1 million public pics of cats on a world map, locating them by the latitude and longitude coordinates embedded in their metadata. The cats were accessed via publicly available APIs provided by popular photo sharing websites. The photos were then run through various clustering algorithms using a supercomputer at Florida State University in order to represent the enormity of the data source. This project explores two uses of the internet: the sociable and humorous appreciation of domesticated felines, and the status quo of personal data usage by startups and international megacorps who are riding the wave of decreased privacy for all. This website doesn’t visualize all of the cats on the net, only the ones that allow you to track where their owners have been.

“The simple truth is that we all share this common sensation, this experience of slashing powder, or weaving through trees, or landing a jump, or watching the sunrise on your drive up to the hill, and just being so F’n grateful that you’ve got today and whatever nature has brought you this morning, and it’s yours to share with your friends and the rest of this ‘tribe.’”

Guy Walks Into a Bar - The New Yorker

So, at around this point, the twelve-inch pianist finishes up his sonata. And he walks over to the bar and climbs onto one of the stools. And he’s, like, “Listen, I couldn’t help but overhear the end of your conversation. I never told anyone this before, but my dad and I didn’t speak the last ten years of his life.”

And the bartender’s, like, “Tell me more about that.” And he pours the pianist a tiny glass of whiskey.

heineken light commercial, featuring neil patrick harris.

Oh just another beer commercial with a celeb… BUT WAIT! This one features PITizens Micah Sherman (The Baldwins, People Improvising) and Happy Anderson. 

Just don’t try to drink beer in front of Micah.

See Micah every Saturday at The PIT at 8pm with The Baldwins!

It’s kind of weird to be scrolling through the old Tumblr dashboard and see a friend from high school in a Heineken commercial with Neil Patrick Harris.
