The rich people will have robot chefs. The rest of us will realise that food can be printed.

Bring on the replicator!

I would buy it at $10000, not over! Because you can have a real person cooking for you for many years with the price of $70k!! Longer than the life expectancy of the robot certainly, and you don't have to prepare the ingredients for the human.

I made the mistake of clicking on a link from reddit yesterday, that took me to one of these videos. Now youtube is serving me up more. Normally I would just click the 'not interested' button, but I can't stop watching. This narrator is so unbelievably ignorant that is just embarrassing to watch. Like a car crash, it's hard to look away.

I feel like giving these videos more traffic, then more people will understand what a looney he is.

Until then I think I'll just go outside and see the ISS fly over, just to be sure it's there of course

I hear the NZ is planning to lower the threshold for GST to be paid on goods purchased overseas, from 400 to 25. NZ retailers say this is good.

NZ retailers are so bad at stocking a wide range at decent prices, we'll still buy online, at least to get the cheapest price, and then give the money to the government. So how is it better for retailers?

+andrew mcmillan I doubt they'll compete at all, because they don't have the volume.

+Josiah Spackman I agree.  The MotoX is the better build, better reputation, not better specs, but at least I don't have to wait and beg for an invite to give someone money!

I think the talk about A.I. will cause the Streisand Effect. The more experts talk about the dangers of A.I., the more the generals will want it.

Yep. I think a lot of really cool things are possible, but just like everything else we'll probably introduce our own bias and totally yes, we might lose skill sets. I think that's already been happening. I really like Google and Wikipedia, and I think it helps find knowledge, but doesn't really - replace is the wrong word here, but along those lines.

I'm not sure where we are going if in theory most work is automated. I think people still want to? I hope the drive for making and doing things is never lost, because yeah, that doesn't look like a good future at all.

Story
Tagline
I'm some dude that was born, learned to do some basic stuff, went to school for AGES, went to hard school for a bit of paper, worked a while, then a bit more, found a girl & married her, worked some more, reproduced, changed life around, reproduced again, found a camera, started learning stuff all over again, got fat, bought a bike, pedalling lots, getting thinner. Oh, and I do stuff with numbers, lots of them.
Introduction
I'm told people actually read these, so here's the main pieces to me.  The rest you'll have to figure out.


I Like People that Discuss Things
Google+ has become a diverse source of information for me.  My circles are varied and I have cultivated them so that their occupants are thoughtful commenters that like to respond.  Please be one of those people.

I post on varied subjects
I will post on everything from lolcats to quantum theory.  If I find something I thinkis cool, I'll share it.  But I wont post too much or too frequently, and try to restrict posts to the relevant community.

I love data analysis
It's my job, and I tend to analyse most things I come across. I specialise in operations analysis, so supermarket queues can be a fun time for me.  I love seeing the opportunities to improve efficiency, or reduce complexity in processes.

Honesty is Very Important to me
If I post something that you don't like, please say so.  I might not remove it or change my position but I still would like to have the discussion.  We're swayed by the people around us, and I have many opinions/thoughts that are derived from other's input.  Part of the sharing experience in Google+ is meeting people that aren't afraid to impart some knowledge my way.

I Very Rarely Get Offended.
I post links, comments, and photos to start a discussion or gain your feedback. If you don't like what I say, tell me, or disagree with me. But since my kids often see my stream I wont tolerate bullying, nudity, or porn in my feed, you will be blocked.
