Fukushima Live Video Feed

The live video feed below show reactors No. 1, 2, 3 and 4 (left to right) at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. The time and date stamp are visible in the upper right-hand corner of the feed. Fukushima is 11 hours ahead of Eastern Daylight Time in the U.S.

So, for example, when the Fukushima screen stamp reads 2011-06-01  01:00:23, it is 23 seconds past noon in New York on the previous day (May 31st in this case).

Bad Blogger! No More Kitty Porn!

Actually, it wasn’t on-line videos of feline antics that has kept me from you. I’ve been banging out posts pretty much non-stop for my blog, Edison 2.0, at Forbes.com. I wish I had more time to post here at my home-base. But, I haven’t yet found a way to manipulate the space-time continuum so that I can increase the length of a day. (If you know the secret, please contact me.)

Sure, it’s great having a different audience at Forbes, but the fact is that Forbes also provides something The Phoenix Sun doesn’t. It pays the bills.

Since I started the Sun in 2009, it has always been a labor of love — and not because I’m opposed to getting paid for it. Like most independent bloggers, I just haven’t found a business model that generates a living wage (or anything close). So, until I do — or I find a patron, win the lottery, or get a MacArthur “Genius” award — I’ll have to write here in-between the freelance j-o-b-s.

I’d been planning on posting links to all my energy-and-the-environment articles at Forbes, but, well, I’ve been too busy writing them. Today, I’ve posted links to the articles I’ve written during May.

If you’ve found any value in the journalism featured here, you’ll probably like Edison 2.0 as well. If not, your money will be cheerfully refunded.
