Birds!
Eagles, crows and why some birds in NH have it better than others
By Jeff Mucciarone jmucciarone@hippopress.com

Sitting quietly on a man-made perch, Jim Cowan’s gyrfalcon was all tension. The large bird’s head was seemingly on a swivel, its talons gripping the perch itself. Occasionally the bird would spread its wings revealing a three-and-a-half-foot wingspan and its dark grey plumage. The gyrfalcon’s front is beautifully checkered white and gray. Every now and then, like it was shot out of a cannon, the bird would explode off its perch, characterized by the sound of its powerful wings beating the air. The bird would fly a few feet and then fall back once it exhausted the length of its tether.

TECHIE: What gadgets do to us
Warning: contents may be paranoid
By John “jaQ” Andrews  jandrews@hippopress.com.

Awesome technology has a dark side.

I don’t mean nuclear bomb, with great power comes great responsibility type stuff. Mundane things subtly affect what we expect from other people, and what other people expect from us. How weird is it to meet someone who doesn’t have an e-mail address? A cell phone? How about a car? A thermostat? Indoor plumbing?
