So I did a thing!
 
Our SF developer meetup has come and gone. Here’s what you missed: http://bit.ly/1eXxLxk #socialdata #developers
A special thank you to everyone who made it out, and to the DataSift team members who came to support our first SF dev|datasift meetup! For those that missed it, this week we had our first San Francisco meetup, at the awesome Intersection for the Arts. Our next meetup will be in <a href=http://www.meetup.

Lately I've been enjoying a lot of new music. Honestly, having played with (and paid for) Spotify, Last.fm, Pandora, and now Google Play (with whatever they call their radio thing?), I'm really enjoying the ability to find legitimately new music, not just have ever station trend towards the same stuff.

I've found that they generally match one another feature-for-feature. I like the time- and activity-based stations for Google ("You're driving home on a Friday night, here's some up-beat indy house with female vocals"). I found Spotify tended to repeat itself too often, and music discovery wasn't as easy for me. I've also not used it in over a year, and I know they iterate rapidly.

I also like that with Google Music, you can upload up to 50,000 tracks of your own and they get included in radio stations, playlists, etc. 

Both have similar offline functionality (you can even take a few hours of a radio station offline). Riding BART with intermittent cell data on the way to work hasn't ever been an issue for me, because it pre-fetches a few songs at a time when signal is good. AndroidWear and Sonos integration (two techs that I use regularly) are excellent with Google, and I know Spotify is on Sonos but I haven't tried their mobile app w/ Android Wear.

Best part, if you have a Chromecast at all, you can go to http://chromecast.com/offers and get a 90 day trial.

Interesting 2014 report on Silicon Valley and San Francisco as compared to the rest of the state. Looks at a number of interesting economic and demographic stats.

The struggle is real.
 
I need everyone to realise... this is actually how I live.

Interesting article. Actually applies to your job as much as it might your relationship.

PS. Both are fine :-) 
Nobody likes to think about ending a relationship, but sometimes you have to face the hard truth: things just aren't going to work out. Here are four of the biggest things to look for in a toxic relationship.

This was an enlightening article for me. Both are fine on my end too, but one of the points definitely threw some things into perspective for me.

Give it a shot!
 
Hi! My friends and I made an app, and we'd really like you to check it out. It's a smart dating app that helps you plan out dates! Fast and friendly, we hope you love it as much as we do.
Welcome to Cuddli beta! There may be bugs. Please help us test it :)Cuddli ...

Hey guys. So, I owe you all an apology.

While I was not paying attention, lighting toys got WAY BETTER, and as one of your resident light geeks I feel bad for not informing you.

Tonight, I spent about an hour assembling a Fadecandy board and running through a visualization system called Processing.

First self-designed 3d printed project part. Until now it's been other people's stuff or random artwork. This is the baseplate for a custom inductive charger. Housing will print tomorrow.

Feeling very accomplished.

Nothing in your current device is sensitive to all but absurdly powerful magnetics, aside from the compass (which might get a little confused, but you're not navigating from your fridge).

I could probably make you a case that you could drop your tablet into. A few neodymium magnets like these would be more than powerful enough to hold it up.

That said, you'd need to increase friction, because fridges are pretty slick. Some rubberized feet or even just foam pads that compress would be enough to hold it on, most likely.

Is your fridge flat on the front? I forget.

My favorite thing about 3D printers is the sounds they make when printing. There's this happy little robot toiling away in the corner of my office, making EXACTLY THE SOUNDS I was promised by 80s and 90s sci-fi.

And what is it doing? Building a freakin' thing in the real world that I made with CAD software.

While poking around and looking at various sites and designs, (about to start building wedding site), I came across this: A Bootstrap theme using Google's "Material UI" principles.

http://fezvrasta.github.io/bootstrap-material-design/

Honestly, pretty cool. Considering using all or some of this on the wedding site. The cards look-and-feel matches what we're going for pretty well, I think.

Introduction
My name is Brad Hubbard. Throughout my career, my enthusiasm for technology has taken me on an amazing journey. I've managed telecommunications hardware and software product lines, written and launched my own web and mobile applications, and scoped and architected hundreds of technology projects. I have a passion for tackling interesting problems, and collaborating with driven people to build great things. Right now I'm taking on social and big data at DataSift. 

In my free time, I play with leather, swords, and lights.

Some of the best burgers in town. The Old Town location is the only one with chili (and chili dogs). Also, the Swiss cheese makes for a much better burger than the standard "cheddar"

These guys have a weekly deal called "Taco Tuesday" where you can get two tacos for $3, and two Pacificos for $3.50. It's nice, because getting two and two comes out to exactly $7. It's become a tradition with my friends, and the food is quite good. Carnitas has some kick to it, and the chile verde is awesome.
