Visualizing how Neural Networks work. This gave me a much deeper understanding of how hidden layers and hidden units affect the learning process.

Oh God, the lazy nerd in me is sooo excited. If Amazon Fresh only were available in Germany.

This has been announced at the last i/o. I have been waiting for it ever since.
 
Chrome apps/extensions commands¹ can now have global scope in Dev Channel which means they work while Chrome does not necessarily have focus.

As you can read below, the Google Play Music Mini Player App² is already taking of this for our greatest pleasure. And if you're not happy with the default shortcuts, you can customize them at chrome://extensions and click on the "Keyboard shortcuts" link at the very bottom of this page.

Be aware that global commands are not enabled by default yet at the moment in Chrome OS.

This reddit thread is one of the best in a while. The linked video is both hilarious and genuinely interesting/intriguing.

A small update on my Chromebook full-time experiment:

I feel like the Zed Editor[1] has made it viable. I use a remote workstation hosted at Amazon. Why Amazon and not Google's Cloud Platform? Because Amazon has an Android App[2] with which I can start/shutdown my workstation easily.

I feel pretty comfortable doing Go and web stuff so far. Let's see how far I can take this.

When I heard about GitHub's Atom, I was actually excited. Being on a Chromebook Pixel full time, a proper web-based editor sounds really good. Sadly, Atom is still a packaged app fur OS X only. Enter Zed.

Let's see if I can start working more comfortably and ditch Koding.com all together.

I just installed a major firmware upgrade on my Synology NAS (DS411j to be exact). Turns out, I can now stream from my NAS to my #Chromecast  - my HTPC can finally be put to sleep.

Thanks to +Hasan Hosgel for bringing this to my attention
