I used the app this weekend and while very basic, it is very useful and the open API will be a valuable resource to anyone looking to build a transit/travel app.

Get the app here https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id561507659?mt=8

The API is here http://datamine.mta.info/ I have yet to play with it, but from what I remember it was pretty straight forward.

Anyone going to use the data feed for something else beside finding your next train?
I’d love to hear about it. 

I recently launched a fashion blog, http://sociologyofstyle.com. We’re starting to see some good improvement in our search results position and therefore more organic search traffic.

The chart shows how we’re doing with ALL of the keywords we’ve been associated with. We’re doing even better with the specific keywords we’ve targeted.

We’ve managed to achieve a PageRank of 4 in the short 3 months we’ve been live, for what it’s worth.

“And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer – because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”

This photo shows the collapse of Torrero Alvaro Munera, as he realized in the middle of the his last fight… the injustice to the animal. From that day forward he became an opponent of bullfights.

Update: I’m not the original author of this. I saw it reposted on Facebook and posted it over here (which is why the entirety of it is in quotes). It turns out this story isn’t entirely true. According to Wikipedia he became paraplegic after a bull threw him into the air, and he broke his vertebrae upon landing.

Even though it doesn’t seem to be a picture of Munera, the image is quite striking.
