"I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who took part in the 5th anniversary surprise party – especially to Sofia for organising the whole thing, to Yuhki for helping her, and of course to Nils, Peter and Martyn for playing such wonderful notes that night. I really had no idea. This is what I call a real family. I will hold this memory forever in my heart. Love, Robert" (founder of Erased Tapes)

Sea Bites: The line between bravery and fear for a bite out of the sea.
A short documentary by David Beriain.
The wind roars. The sea crashes against the cliff. Two meters of rock, that is the strip of water and oxygen where the goose barnacle grows. Two meters where the sea shows no mercy, and beats with millenary strength. A line of waves and foam where Serxo and his comrades fight for a bite out of the sea.
A line between bravery and fear. Between recklessness and common sense. Two meters without margin of error. That is where the barnacles live. Where Serxo lives.
SEA BITES is the battle against the sea from some warriors that don't consider themselves heroes.
HRF’s Disrupt North Korea project aims to help civil society groups operating in South Korea to hack North Korea in three ways:
Balloon launches carrying information and equipment over the border.
Radio broadcasting using short and medium-wave signals.
Smuggling equipment and information through routes along the North Korean border with China.
Timelapse of the observatories atop Mauna Kea, Hawaii. The summit is at an altitude of nearly 14,000 ft and is the premiere site for astronomy in the Northern Hemisphere. As an astronomy graduate student at the University of Hawaii, I've enjoyed excellent access to the facility. Some of my favorite still images of Mauna Kea can be found at sgphotos.com/photostories/maunakea.
Music: "All is Violent, All is Bright" by God is an Astronaut.
Standard disclaimer: Mauna Kea contains delicate ecosystems and is sacred to the Hawaiian people. If you go there, please be sensitive to the cultural role of the mountain and obey the rules contained at ifa.hawaii.edu/info/vis/visiting-mauna-kea. Permits are required for large groups or commercial filming, and more information can be found at the link. And above all, please be safe—accidents are much more likely when you combine high altitude, sleep deprivation, cold, snow/ice, and darkness!
