That makes it less than half of MySpace. Every other network you can think of far surpasses this. I think it's even less than Orkut had.

Meh, I still see good stuff here, and it's layout for content is unique and encourages the things I like.

Yes, Pi day is arbitrary and a little silly, but a day to celebrate mathematics is still a swell thing to do!

I find this pretty interesting. The overview page includes what we know so far about the electronics.
 
Nengo is  open source software for simulating human brain.

To predict the future, you need to keep your ear to the ground and your eyes on the horizon. In other words, you need to be pretty big-headed to think you can predict the future.

To protect against ransomware (CryptoLocker et al), I created a second user account, created a folder that only that account has permissions to, and scheduled a task with that user's credentials to copy all my documents to a sub-folder in the protected folder.

This will only work if the ransomware runs as a user account, and also does not obtain administrator permissions that can modify the permissions on the backup folder. It's also more storage intensive than a proper offline grandfather-father-son, but if it gets too bad it is easy to clean all but the most recent backup.

Are there any other problems I didn't realize? This is dramatically easier than setting up an offline backup or paying someone else to do the same.

I might go back to using Opera. After version 12, they rebuilt from the ground around webkit, quite sensibly. However, they murdered many of my favorite features in so doing. I gave it another try today, and most of my favorite features are back:
* single-key shortcut for next and previous tab in display order
* ctrl+tab for most recently viewed tab
* mouse gestures

Still missing:
* vertical tab bar with page thumbnails (ctrl+tab can show the thumbnails nicely)
* IRC support. This doesn't really belong in a browser, but now I need another program
* Ctrl+# to open that numbered page from the speed dial
* Themes are less robust

New features I like:
* bookmarks management, perhaps good enough to get me back to using bookmarks instead of remembering URLs
* pages render correctly (those designed for webkit, which is now every web page)

I always love these optimistic visions of the future that seem to come out regularly from Microsoft and Corning. Inventing a fake future in hopes that the real future somehow shows up and mates with it.

Such an incredible photo, I hesitate to call it an infographic.

Inventing a fake future in hopes that the real future shows up to mate with it.
Introduction
In addition to futurism, I like to think about datacenters and global scale. The first is a hobby, and the second is a career that enables much of that future :)
