I saw these interesting stats on SportsCenter tonight. My final four picks were: Texas, UCLA, U Conn, Villanova. Hey – one out of four ain’t bad.

Sirius crosses 4 million subscriber mark
Sirius Satellite Radio announced yesterday that they crossed the 4 million subscriber mark. It took them a little over 3 months to grow from 2 million (September 15th, 2005) to 3 million (December 27th, 2005). It took less than 3 months for Sirius to go from 3 million to 4 million (March 20th, 2006). If they keep up this growth rate, Sirius would end the year with over 7 million subscribers. Sirius’ stock is up significantly over the last week on this news. XM reached 6 million on January 4th, so they will need to announce something about passing 7 million in the next week or so to keep pace with Sirius. I’ll be updating my XM vs Sirius total subscribers graph when I get the latest numbers from XM.
Rephotographing my neighborhood
Rephotographing my neighborhood in San Francisco. The photo on the left is from today. The one on the right is from 1953. That’s Twin Peaks in the background. The neighborhood in the foreground is called Miraloma Park. Best viewed at full size.

Battle on Wikipedia over Marina Girl definition
If the denizens of the Marina do not fall into the category above (single), they are married and possess one child. The Marina child is less than 5 years of age and often responds to such names as “Cole”, “Spencer”, “Madison” or “Dakota”. Last names as first names or geographical locations to which either Marina parent has never been are currently all the rage. The Marina child can be found on any weekend morning being pushed or carried by either parent down Chestnut or Union Streets.
