NYC Transit Explorer

The NYC Transit Explorer demo shows you how long it takes to get everywhere in your city using public transportation. It also helps you game out different scenarios. Which areas are easier to get to from Point A vs. Point B? Which areas are harder to get to late at night? How much harder will it be for me to get around without the L train?

The next game from Rock Band and Dance Central developer Harmonix is more about mixing music than making it. Called Fuser, the NCsoft-published game lets players explore the fantasy of being a DJ at a massive music festival.

Unlike the myriad critiques of the military that wash over the institution from outside the Blob, this one is written by a professor with 20 years on the inside. He knows the instructors, the culture, the admissions process, the scandals, the cover-ups, and how its legendary “warrior-scholars” have performed after graduation and on the battlefield.

Bakken’s prognosis: the military as an institution has become so separate, so insulated, so authoritarian, that it can no longer perform effectively.
