Massive visualization uses Google’s Ngram Viewer – a remarkable big-data tool for tracking changes in culture though word usage in more than 4 billion books – to depict political, scientific, cultural, and philosophical themes.

One of the most prominent patterns is the fall of “God” over the course of the 20th century, as well as the rise of utopias – a concept that has always enchanted us – in the aftermath of WWII.

Saddened to hear of the passing of local big band leader Charles Goodwin earlier today. This is truly the end of an era for our region as this iconic band leader passes away quietly at his home. I was fortunate enough to met Charlie and study under him for ever so brief a moment or two, but I always loved to hear him play. This is one of his last performances I captured in Kingsport with the Big Band.
