Beautiful story told in cast iron and spring steel.
Chris Herridge spent eleven months painstakingly rebuilding the engine of his Triumph Spitfire Mk3, and photographing the process. Over 3,000 photos later, and he created this amazing video of an engine being disassembled and rebuilt.

Superb, had I done something similar when I helped rebuild a Jag V-12, the movie would have run to over 3 hours, rivalling Titanic both in scope and tragedy...

Don't do this. Please.
For web developers, exposing your .git folder to the world is a novice mistake. It allows anyone to download your entire source code repository, which often includes database passwords, salts, hashes, and third party API keys or usernames and passwords. Over the years, for another personal ...

ONE woman shown and she appears to be doing assembly. For a company whose market is women.
Bogus.

More than you ever wanted to know about the application of copyright law to dreaming neural networks.
 
Q: So, Andy, who owns the copyright to DeepDream images?

A: Uh. That's a good question. I have no idea.

Q: So, why are you posting about it? 

A: Because my law school mentor, +Annemarie Bridy, does have some idea. 

Q: And what's the answer, according to her?

A: Basically, "no one does," because AIs don't have legal personhood. But apart from that, the answer is surprisingly complex, and touches on US case law, French surrealists, 'pataphysics, and computer science. Worth reading if you have the time and the background.

"Our doors are open and will remain so until every addict who seeks help with their disease has treatment. You will always have a place to go as long as this police department stands."

That's the Police Chief of Gloucester, MA talking about their new drug program. They're calling it the Gloucester Initiative.

Here’s how Chief Len Campanello says it works:
"Gloucester will NOT charge any addict who comes to us for help.
We will fast track them in treatment and support their family. You will receive no judgment; just professionalism, respect and compassion."

The chief says "Addiction is a disease not a crime. We can’t arrest our way out of the epidemic.

The Gloucester Initiative has been in operation now for about a month.

And the Chief just posted this update on Facebook: "We have, as of midnight last night, taken in 55 persons with addiction.
All placed, all in treatment. We received great news today from our first intake...he is over 30 days clean and sober. We continue to encourage persons with addiction to come in and get help."

"The are no catches."

"We feel this program is the first day of the last recovery process a person with addiction will go through. We say this because we tell each of our program intakes that whatever they do after they walk into the police station, we will be there. Whether they are able to succeed or whether they relapse, we will be there. We will help again and again and again until they no longer want help."

"We know there will be setbacks for people."
"We don't care."
"Come back."
"You're still in recovery."

"We know some people will relapse."
"We will not judge you."
"Come back."
"You are still in recovery."

"Just as a cancer can go into remission only to appear later, we know addiction is hard to beat. 60 police officers, 40 Angels, and an entire community will have your back."

"You must do your part, but we will refuse to abandon you, forget you, or ignore you."

"You will receive the respect and dignity you deserve here, without judgment, without coercion, without charges."

"Your life has meaning."

"We are partnering with almost 30 treatment facilities who feel the same way."

"Not one person who has walked through our doors has been turned away."

Chief Len Campanello

“A reporter asked one of my officers last night:
‘Do you see a common thread in all addicts?’

Without hesitation, the officer responded:
‘Absolutely..they're all human beings.’

I'm wondering what a crew like VNV Nation could do with this 😊
Sunhouse is raising funds for Introducing Sensory Percussion on Kickstarter! The nuance and control of an acoustic drum. The limitless possibilities of digital sound. A true leap forward in drum technology.

I remember my Amiga fondly 😊
 
Love, love, love it. I may buy one just to put it next to my (still working) C-64! :)
Commodore is bringing back back the 80's. Well, sort of. A new Android phone bearing the Commodore name arrives later this week, complete with an emulator for C-64 and Amiga games.
