On Being Tumblr

On Being Tumblr

On Being with Krista Tippett is a public radio project delving into the human side of news stories + issues. Curated + edited by senior editor Trent Gilliss.

We publish guest contributions. We edit long; we scrapbook. We do big ideas + deep meaning. We answer questions.

We've even won a couple of Webbys + a Peabody Award.

What an absolutely splendid way to usher out the day, thanks to explore-blog:

This is amazing: A mesmerizing Beach Boys vocals inspired by the physics of church bells from Alexander Chen, who wrote code to draw a circle for each note of the song using a mathematical relationship between a the circumference of a circular surface and pitch. A fine addition to these synesthetic visualizations of music.
