Google has hired 4chan founder Chris Poole. He's joining Photos & Streams, the team that oversees Google+. Will he give us thousands of convenient meme shortcuts?
Google's long suffering social media efforts are about to get a little help from the creator of one of the Internet's most controversial communities.

I guess Google wants to push the community aspect of G+.

A new stable catalyst (based on ruthenium) can be used to create methane directly and repeatedly from CO2 captured out of the air, with a conversion rate of up to 79% of CO2.
(Phys.org)—For the first time, researchers have demonstrated that CO2 captured from the air can be directly converted into methanol (CH3OH) using a homogeneous catalyst. The benefits are two-fold: The process removes harmful CO2 from the atmosphere, and the methanol can be used as an alternative fuel to gasoline. The work represents an important step that could one day lead to a future "methanol economy," in which fuel and energy storage are prim...

Time to wind down Google+... it's not getting any livelier here. Just finished changing all Google+ photo gallery links on my blog to Google Photos, and also removed the Google+ contact/author link from my blog header. Google has not been using the G+ author metadata for a while so it's just taking up space. I'll keep the account up for now but don't expect to post much in the future.

Windows 10 Fall Update: some nice new features are unfortunately dwarfed by an impressively cumbersome update process. Do we really need to replace all device drivers to get colored title bars?
Windows 10 just received its first major feature update, only known informally as “Fall Update.” The name was not changed to Windows 10.1 or the like, although System: About in the Settings app now…

Your post-apocalyptic fallout shelter had better contain a broad selection of printed books...

Also, digit formats come and go. I can't reinstall my old disc-based games on my PC because I unhooked my DVD drive for my computer in order to make room for another TB drive. I've rebought older PC games on Steam because I can't be bothered to find the disc and plop them down in a DVD that is no longer hooked up.

I still prefer to draw on paper and read D&D rules with the heavy books even though they're easily on PDF format. There's something about the tactile feel of paper.

Right on cue... Google revamps Google+ to focus on communities & collections. All the rest is "drastically simplified." Arguably those are the only things that are popular on G+ so this change makes sense. Opt-in for now on the web, the mobile clients will arrive shortly.

If you remove most other features then whatever remains are by definition the product's strengths :)

Finished Robert Ardrey's 1976 classic, The Hunting Hypothesis. Highly readable and broadly plausible, though I cannot vouch for every detail. Recommended for anyone interested in human evolution.
