"Every drop of honey is truly a taste of the particular place it was harvested. The diverse flavors of honey range from fruity, floral, grassy, woody or smoky (refer to our Honey Aroma and Tasting Wheel) dependent upon the floral source and where you are in the world. I now know that commercially made honey bears do not express terroir."
Marina Marchese of the American Honey Tasting Society tells us about five honeys from around the world that every foodie should taste.

"That's why I'm really proud of what we did here," he said over his cup of sake. "I'm proud of the big things, but I'm also proud of the little things we routinely did well. Do you know what made me most proud in the meal I served you? The Wagyu beef. It was perfectly cooked."

"The advantage of sous vide," someone said.

"But it wasn't sous vide!" Dufresne said. "That's the thing. It was cooked in a pan. And it had no gray on it! Do you know how hard that is? Do you know how much work that takes? Turning the beef every seven or eight seconds … And so that question you asked me before, about food and music—that's my answer: a perfect piece of Wagyu beef cooked in a pan that comes out without any gray on it. It might not be 'When the Levee Breaks,' but it's definitely 'Achilles Last Stand.' "
"When I first opened, I thought there would be 15 people in the city doing what I do."

"Even back in 1984, Pynchon was warning about how the unprecedented amount of data that surrounds us is subject to both failings in the tech itself, and in those who are allowed to wield it. Pynchon's a Luddite in the “class-warrior” sense that ​Motherboard's Brian Merchant outlined last Labor Day, not in a “I-don't-want-to-check-my-email-anymore,” technophobic one."
Somewhere in the adapting, IV: The Film loses IV: The Book's slight-but-sly critique of ARPAnet, the progenitor of the internet.

Great photos, fascinating spaces. I’d like to see some of these in person.
String & Thread Installations that elevate existing context with their own interpretations, pushing the very concept of space and our experience within it.

"Whipping humanity’s ass at Fishing Derby may not seem like a particularly noteworthy achievement for artificial intelligence—nearly two decades ago, after all, I.B.M.’s Deep Blue computer beat Garry Kasparov, a chess grandmaster, at his own more intellectually aspirational game—but according to Zachary Mason, a novelist and computer scientist, it actually is. Chess, he noted, has an extremely limited “feature space”; the only information that Deep Blue needed to consider was the positions of the pieces on the board, during a span of not much more than a hundred turns. It could play to its strengths of perfect memory and brute-force computing power. But in an Atari game, Mason said, “there’s a byte or so of information per pixel” and hundreds of thousands of turns, which adds up to much more and much messier data for the DeepMind A.I. to process. In this sense, a game like Crazy Climber is a closer analogue to the real world than chess is, and in the real world humans still have the edge. Moreover, whereas Deep Blue was highly specialized, and preprogrammed by human grandmasters with a library of moves and rules, DeepMind is able to use the same all-purpose code for a wide array of games."

"But the star of the dinner, oddly, was something called a Sichuan pepper. I say oddly both because this was Hunan food, and because the object in question is not a pepper.

I have no idea what, chemically, is in these things. I just know that someone should find out (assuming it hasn't already been done). Our host tried to warn us off eating any, but I ended up being the clueless tourist who happened to chomp down on one."

Weaponized IoT experiment and analysis

"Being intrigued by Inception's use of the Internet of Things as a weapon I wondered what other groups are weaponizing the Internet of Things. To find out I set up an emulated embedded system as a Honeypot over the Holiday break. The system I built ran a very minimal build of Linux on an ARM processor. A typical build for many Internet enabled devices like routers, web cams, etc… The system was designed with outdated versions of software and default passwords so to be horribly unsecure. I was hoping to see what other malware there was that is designed for the Internet of Things and I was not disappointed by my findings."
Last month we released our report on the Inception Framework and as part of that report outlined how a nation-state level attack compromised over 100 embedded devices on the Internet to use them as a private proxy to mask their identity
