RWET: Assignment 3

I have to say, I feel like this is the first time since I’ve gotten to ITP that I’ve actually understood APIs and JSON. That being said, I wanted to make sure I could actually get some data to work with so I spent a long time just building different search queries with the NYTimes Article API. However, I struggled to find something of particular…conceptual interests. After running a bunch of different combinations, I thought about the NYTimes Real Estate section. I thought about urban gentrification and Brooklyn. And then I thought about…space colonization. I guess I’ve had the anthropocene on my mind, and the very real possibility that we’ll one day have to start looking outwards for new places to inhabit.

So I tried mashing snippets from a NYTimes search query with a json file I generated from this subreddit.

I was able to get both sets of content (with a lot of wrangling on the subreddit json trying to figure out how to access the post content) (this stack overflow post helped with figuring out how to even make requests in the first place. But when I tried to use the mashup code that I’ve used in the past, I was only getting individual characters. Here’s that code:

While this is still something I want to debug (perhaps there’s a problem with the line recognition?), I also wanted my poem. I saved each set of content in separate text files and tried opening them in the code. Here’s one of the outputs:

Sales are about to begin at the Baltic, an 11-story condominium rising on the corner of Baltic Street and Fourth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
First, locate a good, easily terraformable or habitable planet in the target system (it doesn’t need minerals, but that’s a bonus). Second, ship infrastructure to the planet. Civilian colony ships will begin delivering colonists. Third, set up automated mines and mass drivers on rich planets in the target system. Set the mass drivers to deliver to your main planet.
The actress lives with her husband, the chef Gabriele Corcos, in Windsor Terrace.

Though at this point it’s taking freighters from the fringes about 9 months to make the trip to earth and 18 months round so I’m not sure how sustainable this is. But nothing has really shown up to make me want to commit to a forward military maintenance base anywhere in my empire.
The sale of the group’s headquarters, along with two other properties owned by the Witnesses, has the potential to bring in $1 billion.

The hosts of the new Cooking Channel series “Extra Virgin Americana,” live in a Brooklyn townhouse.
Do people set up outposts just for the sake of claiming systems, even if they’re useless?
With New York City real estate prices skyrocketing, new services aim to help city dwellers decide whether to move beyond the five boroughs.
Can I just leave fuel and ordinance on the planet? I can’t think of any facility that houses fuel/ordinance on earth technically…

im a bit of a noob, so i want to say thank you for your advices 😉

Woody Guthrie, in writings uncovered by a scholar working on a book, railed against Donald J. Trump’s father, Fred, or “Old Man Trump,” who was his landlord.
In the above I’m not super excited to dedicate resources to building up a colony that can support 25M or more colonists…should I just drop a few automated mines and a deep space listening facility?

Or another (shorter) one:

Like one of the systems adjacent to Sol I found has 1 barely habitable planet, no moons and no particular mineral concentrations. I haven’t surveyed the potential jump points yet, but assuming I find some…does it behoove me to set up a colony?

And another remix:

This week’s subjects include shared electric bills and strict rules in co-ops, and problem in rent-stabilized apartments.

Co-op liquidity requirements, running out of hot water, and circumventing a no-pet policy.
