I'm traveling to France this September with my mother and we're going to be there during the Fête de la Gastronomie, which is great! Except that I don't know what we should do or how we should do it. [more inside]
Nanowrimo, Inktober, One Book July...where can I find a list of such challenges so that I don't miss them next time? [more inside]
I found a job I liked, but it's too far away for me to commute every day. How can I pitch myself as a contractor / consultant for the parts of the job that can be performed remotely or on a part time basis? Many snowflakes inside. [more inside]
I recently interviewed a Turkish band who introduced me to the group 'Roadside Picnic', who make fantastic, alluring left-field hip-hop. I've been hopelessly hooked on this live version of what I presume is a new song from the duo. It's titled "Bir Ustamızın Havası", and I'd love to know what the song is talking about. [more inside]
I'm using my iPod's built in voice memo tool. It's ok, but I'd like one that is entirely voice activated. That is, I don't want to have to control start, stop and other features by touching the screen. Is there one that will respond to simple voice commands? If not, how about for Android OS?

My organization is going to begin conducting larger telephone surveys than we have in the past, and needs CATI software to facilitate this. We need something that will track contact attempts, outcomes, etc. as well as allow the interviewer to read items and enter responses. Google tells me there are a lot of options out there, but I can't find anything that compares them by price, features, user satisfactions, etc. Have any of you used a system you particularly like (or one you hated)? Are there specific features you think I should be filtering on? [more inside]
Is there a particular culture that devised and then used this sort of handshake? [more inside]
In the last episode of the new Cosmos series, (someone portraying) Fritz Zwicky appears briefly, to sort of stare and blink and then make a gesture like this. He died in 1974. What is the source of this footage? Is it an actor (with an oddly non-speaking role, and no acknowledgment yet on IMDB), some sort of CGI magic from photos, or archival footage? Our household is unreasonably curious about this.
We want to see the parts that showcase China's natural beauty, what we couldn't see anywhere else, what will likely be gone by the time we return next time. But we are limited by traveling with a super flexible 2 year old, and we don't have a ton of time. What do you recommend? [more inside]
