This past weekend, I rode in the 2013 Levi’s Gran Fondo in Santa Rosa, CA. I did the Piccolo (~35 mile) course, but due to mechanical issues, completed it extremely slowly. The Strava file below only captures the first half of my very leisurely ride.
This past weekend, one of my great friends, Halcyon, moved in with another of of my great friends, Charlie. To celebrate Halcyon’s arrival, they threw a party in their apartment in Chinatown. Charlie has a reputation for composing musical ‘evites.’ He asked me to compose the most recent one — this is what I came up with. Now that the party has happened, I feel confident I can publish it without fear of causing uninvited party guests.
In recording this, I used a lot of vocal layering, a lot of autotune, and a lot of other acoustic sounds (e.g., oboe accompaniment and hand claps). I like the sound a lot, and am hoping to use it in some more serious music sometime soon.

I just published my first post to the TrialPay Enginerds Blog. The post details some work I’ve done to categorize offers from TrialPay’s advertisement network as “similar,” and identify “communities” of offers. There’s also a neat visualization of an adjacency matrix, which I built using d3.js. The visualization is an adaptation of some work done by Mike Bostock.

My improv team, The Carole Bourne Identity, performed at Endgames Improv’s Harold Night this past Thursday (February 21, 2013). We performed a harold based on the audience suggestion “Yahweh.” Check out a video of the performance below!
