I always think that I’ll get a bunch of work done on transcontinental flights. Finish up those overdue articles, prepare classes in advance, read papers from the literature.

Then I end up staring out the window for most of the flight.

Over Utah, I was struck by how much the landscape resembled the views radioed to Earth by the Huygens probe as it drifted down to its final resting spot. There are networks of channels cut by intermittent streams, ridgelines, clouds, and dry lake beds.

As a result, everything that I’ve been promising — the next contest dataset, a description of last week’s winning system, an overview of the updates to the downloadable console, the launch of Systemic’s second phase — it all gets pushed back by one more day.
