It's almost like G+ is trying to aggravate me with all these recommended posts by crazy Trump supporters...

Are you curious, concerned, or interested in self-driving cars? Take my survey on self-driving cars: https://sjsu.qualtrics.com//SE/?SID=SV_2rwVzUtamTmWAex. It's anonymous and will only take 5-10 minutes to complete.

For my graduate thesis, I am seeking to better understand the ways in which self-driving cars could change the urban landscape. Your input is important.

Thank you in advance for your participation! If you have any questions, email me at melissa.ruhl@sjsu.edu.

Received my first Soylent shipment. So far I'd say it is pretty good.

An interesting perspective on the difficulty (and importance) of listening to stories of traumatic events as it relates to men listening to women sharing their lived experience.

My own semi-coherent thoughts: The thing about #NotAllMen is that it is trivially true. Emphasis on the trivial. The unfortunate truth is that it is enough men, enough of the time...

If you really feel the need to say #NotAllMen, then it seems to me that rather than spending your energy saying it to the women sharing their experiences you should be saying it to call out other men when they paint all of us in a bad light. It should be those men you are upset with after all.

So somehow I missed this. I think I might have been happier had I never seen it...

With 1 in 4 Americans getting this wrong, is it any wonder that we have such a difficult time with more complicated topics (like climate change)?

Maybe they just don BELIEVE it does that.  Maybe they don't have telescopes.
Sometimes I think maybe its just our imagination.  ha ha.  But I don't have a telescope

Science is awesome
A curved signature in the cosmic microwave background light provides proof of inflation and spacetime ripples ;

This was frustrating to listen to. I was a little floored when he said:

"There will be things in this report that will be disturbing graphically, but I suspect if you had a similarly graphic description of what happens when innocents are killed in a drone strike, you would be equally disturbed by what you read. [...] So, yes, you can find, in any wartime situation, some examples that are unpleasant to read about."

Or maybe more succinctly: "Well, shit happens."

It is best to just assume that everything they say is an excuse or just to confuse people. They do it because they can and that is the whole story. Anything these people say is to get others like them to agree so add to the threat level, or to scare you into thinking that words matter at all to them.

Even the way this report is released is intended to create terror in the populace or increase the acceptable level of violence in the already violent. Being overtly sociopathic and violent to stun you is a technique to create compliance. If you saw it in a personal relationship you mught better recognize it for the brutality it is.

Very nicely presented!
 
Really slick presentation by Mike Bostock using animated illustrations to explain the operation of algorithms. Via +Vik Sohal and +Robert Bridson whose Poisson-disc sampling algorithm is one of the examples.

A little C++ coroutine based task processing library I have been working on. Provides async/await like functionality and generators among other things.
Off and on for a while now, I have been playing around with a little library I am calling taco - for "task coroutines." After spending some time working on a Unity project and after reading through Charles Blooms many posts on the subject (e.g. Coroutine-centric Architecture), I decided to take ...

Looks nifty. Using 16x16 1-bit cubemaps for ambient occlusion:
