The election is about which available candidate will do a better job. Full period. Stop. Do I still like Sanders and wish he were still in the race? Of course. There are people I like even more and who I think would do an even better job than Sanders. They were not candidates in the primary so I (enthusiastically) backed Sanders at that stage. Now Sanders is no longer a candidate (yes, there was all kinds of super shady stuff going on, but the reality right now is that he's not a candidate), so I enthusiastically back Clinton as the best available candidate. "Bernie or Bust" is basically tribalism masquerading as idealism and is an irresponsible stance as a citizen.

Yes.  I wish we had a different system, too.  We don't.  Given reality, it is indeed irresponsible not to vote for Clinton.*

* With possible exceptions for very well informed voters gaming the system in states that are overwhelmingly one way or the other.  Even so, I don't think this is the election to risk it.

Recently read Seveneves by Neal Stephenson. Sadly, didn't like it: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1316451859
In a word, disappointing. I do like the concept of the story, but I find the execution... lacking. I enjoy and recommend to others pretty much everything Stephenson has writt...

+Jay Sachs Your mileage may, of course, vary tremendously. It clearly appeals to many people, given that it has 4/5 stars on goodreads (and is actually doing slightly better than Snowcrash on that system).

Job change announcement - on June 3 my employment at Williams comes to a close (quite amicably). I have various plans and ambitions for post-Williams work / life, but I'm not moving on to a specific other job (though I am open to discussing things if you know someone whose looking). It's been a good run (about 13 years), I'm very glad to have had the opportunity to do the work I've done there, I look forward to keeping in touch with the many friends I've made during that time, but it is time for me to be doing something different.

Intriguing post looking at MB personality types with respect to certain types of thinking about the future (in the realm of societal change driven by decreasing energy/resource availability): http://physics.ucsd.edu/do-the-math/2015/04/programmed-to-ignore/

I think the question is, "How do we recruit some extroverts?"
