ni9e.com now evan-roth.com


The rumors are true…. ni9e.com is now evan-roth.com. For various reasons I have decided to leave behind the URL I registered almost 8 years ago for something a bit less creative and more self aggrandizing. Those of you nostalgic for what once was can always take a trip down memory lane and still enter the site through ni9e.com for old times sake. I’m going to keep the blog URL at blog.ni9e.com as a terrorist fist bump to the place where it all started. All of your old bookmarks (both social and otherwise) should still work. Management would like to thank you for your continued support through this time of corporate restructuring. And now for 9 line breaks of silence for an old friend:

White Glove Tracking


White Glove Tracking
Creating a data source together one glove at a time.
This is a new project by myself and Ben Engebreth. If you are bored at work you can take part by helping us find every white glove in Michael Jackson’s first televised performance of the Moonwalk.
There are 10,060 frames of video in Michael Jackson’s 5 min 34 sec nationally televised landmark performance of Billy Jean. The White Glove Tracking project (W.G.T.) is an effort to isolate just the white glove from this moment in pop-culture history. Rather then write unnecessarily complex code to find the glove in every frame of the video I am asking for the assistance of 10,060 individual internet users to simply click and drag a box around the glove in one frame. In the end this data will be shared freely for all to download, visualize, and use as an input into other digital systems.
