Very interesting.

The most important musical form of the 20th century will be nearly forgotten one day. People will probably learn about the genre through one figure — so who might that be?

Is there anyone more self-aware of their fame than John Malkovich? These photo recreations are brilliant - I actually had to put my finger over the moustache on the Dali one to make sure it was Malkovich!

Now you can not use screen savers on your phone instead of not using Daydreams. 
Google added Daydream to Android way back in Android 4.2, and Google proceeded to do absolutely nothing with it. Well, almost nothing. It's used on An... by Ryan Whitwam in Android N, News

Charlie Brooker really is a genius. This perfectly sums up my view.

That's why there's alcohol. I'd rather dance than talk to people any day.

This is a very interesting article on tech psychology.





Maybe the fact that this guy worked for Google is why "Plus is dead", 'cause they wouldn't stoop to LinkedIn's level. /joking

And yes, the irony of posting this on social media doesn't escape me.

A gold rush themed park could easily be hokey and lame, but thankfully Sovereign Hill is not. There are tons of activities, many are performed authentically (or at least as far as I can tell) by people who really seem to enjoy what they're doing. My kids really filled in a day, and we went back the next (tip: if you get the desk staff to stamp your entry ticket, you can return the next day for free). My only reservation is that the night time sound and light show isn't that great, particularly for young kids who get alternately bored and then frightened by the effects. But for a place where you can actually pan for, and possibly find, gold, as well as holding a $150k bar of gold in the "Gold Pour" display, it is good fun.

Hop Temple could easily be dropped into Fitzroy or Brunswick and it wouldn't be out of place. An alleyway entrance into a grungy converted garage leads you to a bar with a big focus on beers, and the range is impressive. We also had some great value burgers and pizzas which arrived impressively quickly and were very tasty. A great little Ballarat spot.
