Moving Forward with a Data-Driven #E-rate Modernization Process

Sort of a policy/data wonk type of blog post. I mention it here mostly because the two broadband maps touted in this post fail to show anything for Alaska. In terms of broadband we are sort of primitive, but we do have SOME fiber. 

We in Alaska are kinda used to be left out of national data maps, but it is still sort of annoying. 

I’m very happy with how these flowers came out. They’re in planters at my workplace. 

Two May 2014 views of the Rhapsody of the Sea departing Juneau Alaska. 

Some March 2014 photos from downtown Anchorage Alaska. I love sunrises over the water. 

Some March 2014 pictures from near the Juneau Airport showing off clouds playing with the Mendenhall towers. 

I’m posting these photos now because I finally got a new cable for my Nikon Coolpix P100 and so can let these pictures free. 

These are my inside looking out pictures of the 2014 start of Alaska’s Iditarod dog sled race.

They look bad? They’re meant to demonstrate what happens when you’re too lazy and comfortable to go where the pictures are. 

Take chances. Go outside. Don’t be lulled by the comfort of staying where you are.

Wild & Free Mushing - Eureka, AK


Eureka Alaska is a place in Southcentral Alaska with 19 people. I wonder if each of them own at least four dogs.

Why sunrise is a relative term in Juneau

According to Weather Underground, local sunrise was at 4:52am. While it did get light around 5am, the sun did not climb above Mount Roberts until 7am. Was like flipping on a light switch even though it had been bright enough to see by. 

I’m writing this on a rare cloudless day in Juneau. That makes the effect more pronounced.
