Today marks an alarming record: for the first time in recorded history, there are three Category 4 hurricanes simultaneously moving across the Pacific Ocean. From left to right, these have been named Kilo, Ignacio, and Jimena; Ignacio is currently headed towards the Big Island of Hawaii, while the path of the other two isn't yet clear enough to know if any islands are in danger.

#FeelTheBern

You know you want to.
Bernie Sanders will become the Democratic nominee, primarily because people trust him and polls are finally beginning to reflect the energy and momentum of his campaign.

Yup. It's a good time to switch from Linux (as it's being colonialized by RedHat) to BSD.

This is really good. I've heard really good things about Netflix.

Look, they're just collecting harmless meta data, OK? So can we just drop this whole ... oh my ...

These digital nomads are going to sail the world while they work

Coboat sounds like the Holy Grail for traveling freelancers: They could sail entire oceans — choosing from destinations like southeast Asia, the Maldives, the Caribbean, Mediterranean and India — and have the opportunity to connect with communities far outside the 9-to-5 world.

Other similar programs have popped up around the world, including Hackers Paradise, which takes computer engineers on 2- and 4-week working adventures, and Remote Year, which provides participants with a coworking environment in a different country each month.

Where Coboat differs from other programs is that instead of having workers move around the world, it has the world move around them. And Coboat's founders want to encourage collaboration between the individuals on board; they hope the tight quarters foster innovation and eventually action. In other words, they want it to be more than a party boat.

+humza shakir, you should get on board (literally!) with this and build a cluster inside the boat to serve piratebay.org traffic. The Internet was made for the open seas!

Amanda Lin has just published a new article on the 120 most helpful websites for writers in 2015 and featured Contrary Brin as one of those sites.  
https://geediting.com/blog/the-120-best-websites-for-writers-2015/

Probably of more value to writers than my blog would be this popular page of advice that I put up.  It has my best practical suggestions... and the sidebar contains other links.
http://www.davidbrin.com/advice.html 

See also this entire Scoopit of advice compilations! http://www.scoop.it/t/advice-for-writers
There are many websites about writing around, but it's time consuming to sort the decent from the mind-bendingly awesome. So here's a list of the best 120!

I suppose there's something wrong with my OS too!??? Oh, wait. Yeah, there is: systemd. The one good thing I can say about systemd is that it has provided more persuasion than anything else for me to ditch Linux and go BSD. Maybe the disenfranchised Linux crowd will do that too. Let RedHat have Linux all to itself. It's what they want anyway.

For context, systemd is making it's own `su` command now [http://goo.gl/8lWa1P]. Is nothing sacred!?

Chicken and waffles is not a thing so much in CA as it is in the South. So its great to see these kinds of dishes accessible here. Go and get the chicken and waffles. You won't regret it.
