Daily Reminder

police.jpgCrime is everywhere in this city - even right outside my front door. The police chased this guy down and then tazed him. No idea what he did, or why his pants are down.

It goes to show that even in what is considered to be one of the safest neighborhoods in Baltimore, there is still no escape from the crime that infects every street of this city.

I'm amazed at how I've never seen any sort of police presence until after a crime is committed; then there's no shortage of swarming boys and girls in blue.  I don't think I've ever seen an officer standing on a street corner or sitting at an intersection in their car.  I have no idea what they do before a call goes out, but crime prevention based on a constant police presence does not seem to be something high on their list of things to do.

XMPP in Bioinformatics

Came across this paper today:

I'm pretty excited that there is anyone else in Bioinformatics that even knows what XMPP is.  As the amount of data that is transfered via networks to servers that run processes (e.g., many methods being released today provide an API) increases, protocols like XMPP will need to take over and leave HTTP based ones (SOAP, REST) in the dust.

Hurrah!  I'm excited.

Also came across this article: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10706945 - and all I can say is that I'm speechless.  The trial participants must be quite....interesting...

New pics of Baltimore / the new apt soon....
