NYC Nostalgia, Interview With Livestreaming Guy

12/12/2021

Nostalgic NYC stuff.  I operated a blog title called "Tech for the City" very briefly while there.  I tried to dig up unique technology for exhibit at the blog, and at some point finally decided to walk up and interview this guy -- an early live streamer before Periscope and live feature components of Twitter and the like.  He was a regular at Union Square Park.

He had some beef with Turkey politics and I believe he was in some kind of voluntary exile.  Livestreaming was his chosen opposition voice, and he was certainly committed to it.  

Not exactly sure what happened to him, but I do know from his blog at the time he was staged to head back.  He was pissing people off, I hope he is okay today wherever he is.

The Jump On Turnstiles

03/15/2021

Whoa!  Spotted at the Allen Medical Station.  I encountered these new turnstiles wrapped and staged...for implementation?  I need to Google this. 

For the non-Buffalo reader, currently NFTA (Niagra Frontier Transit Authority) uses the honor system for fares.  These pictures suggest we're going to a more conventional turnstile system.  

We're going to get turnstile jumpers!  More and more like New York City each day around here.

Speed Camera Ticket

11/27/2020

Video demonstration of the speed camera ticket and its website. It's better full-screened. 

I'm going to guess that most people here in Buffalo have yet to be issued a speeding ticket resulting from a violation caught by one of the city's new speed cameras. 

I am ashamed to admit that I was negligent and reckless enough to be someone  that was.

If eventually you do yourself, this video shows off the ticket that you can expect to receive, and a quick walk through of the website where you will be allowed to view your violation and either pay the fine, or initiate the process of contesting it.  

As it appears, I apparently triggered the camera exactly one minute and 46 seconds into the control period (meaning, the 15 MPH speed limit I violated had just kicked in at 7:30 whereas I caught at 7:31) sooo, yay for my timing.
