Imagine what would happen if we rejected other products with DRM. I didn't think the average person would know or care about Keurig DRM. A 25% stock drop gets CEOs and investors thinking about DRM. What will Keurig do now? https://defectivebydesign.org/

Some good information about the politics of science and why it matters. 
Since the 1980s. the distrust of scientists in the United States has become a growing ideology used for political purposes. It is extremely dangerous to our democracy. Obama touched on this very subject recently while speaking to the League of Conservation Voters.

Good article. Sad so many people believe these non scientists. These people - politician, preachers, cult leaders - are sheep having lost the ability to think for themselves. And question both theories and the counter theories.

Why does a comedy show do a better job at explaining Net Neutrality than network TV? It's worth a watch when you have 13 minutes.

I think the answer is that most ISPs are also TV companies, and they can easily stop people from speaking out on TV.

I watch lots of music videos and this is the best one ever. Get good ear buds or listen on a good stereo. Today is the last day it's available. Copyright even messes up space. 
A year ago, Col. Chris Hadfield posted a stirring home-brew video of him performing David Bowie's Space Oddity--while afloat in the International Space Station. For copyright reasons, today's your last chance to watch the video. 22 million views later. Sheesh.

I've been an adobe fanboy since the early Pagemaker days. I've spent thousands of dollars on Adobe software. I continue to use many Adobe products almost daily but since Adobe moved to subscription only, I'm stuck on the version 5.5 with no hope of moving forwards. I also want to move to an all cloud based environment. 

I've been a long time reader of John Nack blog. He has been my face to Adobe. I'm thrilled that he is moving to Google. I hope he can make Google a great photo edition company. He would not leave Adobe unless he has the opportunity to make a major impact on cloud based photo editing. Good move Google!

I had to cut my IT spending by over 50% so CC subscription was not possible. A few years ago I would have been the first to sign up.

Installing software seems so outdated. Being able to move from phone, table, laptop and desktop with all my data accessible is a great feeling.

I feel that Adobe has the best design programs for professionals who work on powerful desktops all day. But that's 1% of computer users.  +Julie McCoy let me know how CC works out for you.

I love that you can design and print a kayak. You can have as many colors and pattern as you want. This is the first printed kayak. It will get much better. I can have the kayak I've always wanted. For only $500, 42 days of printing, 56 pounds of of ABS, some silicon and about 20 pounds of bolts, washers and nuts. 
Ever wanted to buy a boat but couldn't swing the cost? Well, print one. That's what the guy behind Grass Roots Engineering did.

Totally agree that he's a geek but it looks like a nice shape. Just imagine if you could print a mold of the kayak you want and have it made in fiberglass. Deck lines and hatches would be easy to design into the mold. Bulkheads get added after. I'm sure every kayak manufacturer will be designing kayaks this way. How about a 3D printed fiberglass kayak?

I was on a business trip and needed a proof copy of a brochure printed. I walked in not knowing anything about the place and was greeted by professionals who knew what they were doing and could handle the job. I expected to pay more than having it printed at the Staples down the street but the price was great. I ended up having the print the full run of the brochure and they shipped it to in New York. If you need anything printed, I would head there.

A great addition to Saugerties. The park has a couple of miles of wilderness trails and some beautiful places to sit. Scenic Hudson did a great job allowing people to hike and see the Hudson River. This park is new and I'm sure will get other improvements as time goes on. There is also a nice beach to land on with kayaks at the southern end of the park. It's a great kayaking trip from the Esopus Creek in Saugerties or from Tivoli. Walk or kayak but don't miss it.

[edit] It has closed down. Have been here for dinner a couple of times. Once to hear Myles Mancuso (great) and once for their Friday DJ night. The layout with lots of rooms and outdoor speakers is fun for dancing on DJ night. It's a little harder if you want to "see" the band. The food and the service is good. Rhinebeck has lots of good places to eat so The Art Bar needs to keep working on their menu. We miss some of the middle eastern items they don't offer anymore. The bar area is also nice to sit at. We plan to go back again.

There is free live music everyday. This is a non smoking lounge but open to the bar areas that are smoking. The Rush Margarita is good. I'm alway surprised that the place is mostly empty. Two favorites are Goodman Fiske Duo and Ann Michal. Both very different but fun.

Great live music and no cover fee. There are always people dancing. Friday and Saturday nights are extra fun with two bands. Don't miss it! The Jalapeno margarita is a great last drink of the night.
