Hey , Seattle, I am in you for another day. I have pushed my flight back to leave around 11 PM, so I have all of (today) to do with as I wish. What I wish probably doesn't involve nearly as much walking as today did, because today's walking went over first hill.(Why Seattle does not have the reputation for hills that San Francisco does is beyond me.)
So anyway, what should I do with the day? What have I seen a listing for but don't know is the greatest thing that's happening? What's the secret brunch place that I have to go to? Where, within a reasonable drive, should I go look around at things?
I'm starting from belltown (the ace hotel, the closest thing to a dorm i've stayed in since I was living in a dorm, but not bad for all that.)

I spent today at Pike market, the pinball museum, eating dinner at Maneki, and then the hike over first hill to Maggie Moon's.

Sadly the root beer store in Redmond is closed tomorrow.

(Before that I had a lovely morning with +Kee Hinckley and Molly wandering Pike Market and eating All The Food. Thanks for the company and guidance!)

Due to the snow, this is postponed a week. That means I can make it! However, due to the additional snow, I'm stranded in SF for another 3 days so I won't be making it after all. Y'all should still go.

Once a year, Tech Squares has a one-night 'overview' intro. It's a lot of fun, and can help convince you that yeah, you really want to take the full 13 week class that starts 2 weeks later.

Sadly, I won't be there, but lots of other nice people will be.

You should try it!

So, I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts today, and it was a story that the host had done for a different show some years ago, but it's very relevant here.

Dis anyone know if +Henry Lowood knows about and has been archiving Glitch?
I can't see how he'd have missed it... :)

Listening to 99% Invisible (153- Game Over (R))

<p>A few months before the end of the world, everyone was saying their goodbyes.<br />
The world that was ending was The Sims Online, an online version of The Sims. Even though The Sims was one of the most popular computer games ever made, the massively-multiplayer online version did not do well.<br />
Despite rebranding the game as EA-Land, sales did not improve, and EA Games decided to pull the plug.</p>
<p>This is a collaboration with Robert Ashley from A Life Well Wasted and originally presented on Snap Judgment in 2010.</p>

Is there anyone willing to climb a fairly steep hill to help me hold a portal for (at least) one more day? Or however much beyond that you actually need to get the next guardian level...

... Our I could be told about the Seattle Pinball Museum, and then spend about six hours playing pinball, eventually staggering out to have some sushi. Take that, plans.

At least I'm on a later flight out tomorrow... And I have a $100 credit on Alaska Air for yesterday's 3h delay due to loose carpeting.

  If you need any proof of how much Country pop music sucks nowadays, look no further than this video which dissects and mashes-up six Country songs. All of them sound alike. There ain’t nothin’ “original” added to the mix. “Original” never got anywhere close to the these songs to begin with! In fact, the evidence so damning, YouTuber Sir Mashalot created his own Top 40 Country pop song. I created this mashup as an experiment to see if I was c...

Introduction
I believe that G+'s rules about pseudonymity and anonymity were wrong-headed, potentially dangerous, culturally deaf, useless, and basically stupid.

I'm also frustrated that they managed to have seemingly neutered a site that could've been So Much Better than FB.
