…Twitter went wild during the Super Bowl?

Twitter Super Bowl Map

If you haven’t already, be sure to go play around with the Twitter Super Bowl Chatter Map on The New York Times.

The map itself shows the location and frequency of commonly used words in Super Bowl related tweets, and you can compare things like player names and emoticons to specific milestones in the game to see where people were talking about what, for how long and how intensely.

…Tesla had tallent?

What do you do with a tesla coil, talent, and time? Program it to play the Super Mario Bros. theme, of course. Apparently:

    This is a solid-state Tesla coil. The primary runs at its resonant frequency in the 41 KHz range, and is modulated from the control unit in order to generate the tones you hear.

Though I’m not sure what that means exactly, I do know that electronic music will never be the same.
