Bring your daughter to work day? #portal

About a year ago after some review and conversation with friends I decided to put off using Google Keep until it matured a bit.  Today, Keep is one of the few apps I use every day.  Here's why. . .

Keep is NOT Evernote (or Onenote or Springpad etc.)
I love Evernote, for it's rich formatting and how it is able to powerfully convey information.  The problem is all those features slow me down.  Keep is so fast, I mean really fast.  I'm not going to stop using Evernote, but when I don't need the extra features (which is most of the time) Keep is my go to app.

Keep reminders work
Sure, most reminder programs work, but Keep reminders work the way I want them too.  They are simple to set and forget, but powerful enough to remind me when and where I need to know the information. That's what I want, to be able to record information quickly and forget about it, only to be reminded when necessary.

Keep doesn't have organizational tools like tags or folders
At first I thought this was a negative.  I want my notes to be organized so that I can find them quickly.  Then I realized that I don't care if they are organized so long as I can find them quickly.  Keep doesn't let me waste time organizing, but leverages the powerful Google search capability to find my notes fast.

There are still some things I'd like to see from Keep. . . Some touch ups on the web client for instance, or integration of Google Now reminders.  Google Now/Keep reminders seem to work off of the same engine, and it would be nice to see them all/manage them in the same place. Google has been adding features which is a good sign.

I use Evernote almost every day.  That's not going to change any time soon, but Keep has become my #1 note taker.

Step 1: assembly
Step 2: apply labels
Hint: apply labels before assembly

Shouldn't that make it step 1?

I saw someone share this link on Twitter.  It basically revolves around the origins of the cosmos and how Intelligent Design is laughable because it is psudoscience.  

Psudoscience, of course, is the use of scientific-sounding language to describe hypothesis which cannot be reliably tested with the scientific method.  *Intelligent Design most definitely falls into this category.  But so do many other respectable fields of study*.

In fact every single hypothesis I have encountered for the beginning of the cosmos or the origin of life have required fall into the category of psudoscience because they are NON-TESTABLE.  

Should we give every theory equal billing?  No. Should these scientists laugh at theories that are no less scientific then their own? Sadly the answer to that question deals far more with politics then with and real science.
The "debate" over "Cosmos" is making us dumber

I put my house number on my mailbox, then the snow plow drove past and made me wonder why. I guess I shouldn't complain, they never plowed my road until this year when a school bus slid off the road in front of my house.
