Springsteen in the USA: 40 years of Touring as a Study in Spatial Diffusion "As a geographer, 1500+ shows over 40 years is an opportunity to map...how phenomenons such as innovation, fashion, or disease spread geographically. Except in this case the contagion is rock ‘n roll."

Team Coco Hits The Road

Conan O'Brien announced a tour via his new Twitter account today. Entitled "The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on TV" tour, Conan picked 30 cities to travel to, but the demand has already been so great that additional dates are being added. The title references the fact that because of the terms of his exit agreement with NBC, he is prohibited from appearing in another television show until after September 1. Conan O'Brien's new Twitter account previously posted on MeFi. I'm guessing he's gotten the hang of it fairly quickly, given this was only announced via Twitter.

Around the world on a Dream Machine

Around the world on a Dream Machine — 77 years ago, the giant German airship LZ-127 Graf Zeppelin left Lakehurst, NJ on an aerial world tour sponsored by American media mogul William Randolph Hearst. The airship's gondola carried 20 passengers in high-tech style, including: U.S. Navy observer Charles Rosendahl; English pilot, Zeppelin frequent flyer, and Hearst reporter Lady Grace Drummond-Hay; and Japanese naval aviator Ryunosuke Kusaka. The 41 crewmen were captained by Dr. Hugo Eckener, Zeppelin champion and the world's best airship pilot. The hydrogen-filled LZ-127 flew over the Atlantic to Germany, Siberia, Japan, over the Pacific to California, across the United States, and back to Lakehurst. The 20,500 mile, 21-day flight—with 12 flying days at ~80 mph top speed—defined airship travel's golden age. [More inside]
