While the words home and surveillance, taken together, might bring to mind dark premonitions of a dystopian future, there’s a new pane in the window between observer and observed: Dropcam BabyGoatcam! More > >
Gothamist takes a swing at the NY Post’s floridly hyper-active coverage of last week’s CitiBike/Greenwich Village kerfuffle, in which an EMS crew was forced to negotiate a 39-space bike kiosk when called to the rescue of a 92-year-old resident of E. 13th Street, with this juicy bit: “Though the Post is congratulating itself for its victory over Satan CitiBike…”
As of this writing, the joint effort of Citi and tech superstar Emperor Penguin Michael Bloomberg has provided a slick blue website which does not sport a working interactive map. An interactive map or two, yes. An interactive map that works, no. You can, however, try to download the app.
The NYC Open Data Tumblr leads to an interactive map that will help you to plan your trip “from one station to another.” Frankly, I could have biked across the Williamsburg Bridge faster than that map will load (Mac/Chrome), so, score another point for NYC Big Tech.
Well, one way or another, it’s here, and so, without further ado, we present Satan’s Big Bike Station Map to Everywhere (except Satmar Williamsburg). Click and enjoy—this one works!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, everybody! Make it a G train weekend, because the L is not running.
According to the MTA’s Weekender you’ll spend it anywhere but on the L train between Lorimer Street in Brooklyn and 8th Avenue in Manhattan.
The shutdown starts tonight, Friday, May 24, and continues through Memorial Day. Service is scheduled to resume Tuesday, May 28, at 5 a.m.
Meanwhile, listen to native Oklahoman Woody Guthrie, remember our countrymen in Moore, Oklahoma, and have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
