Wow, good on Salesforce.com. Nice to see them follow through.
 
Wow.

This morning, Republican Governor Mike Pence signed the controversial bill into law, despite vocal objections from Salesforce, along with Gen Con, a $50 million annual gaming convention, Fortune 500 member Cummins, Eskenazi Health, Eli Lilly and Co., George Takei, Pat McAfee, Jason Collins, the mayor of Indianapolis, and the State of Indiana's tourism board, among many others.

The CEO of major U.S. corporation is following through on his warning to the State of Indiana to not pass a discriminatory "religious freedom" bill.

That is great! Maybe this kind of pressure will change the playing field.

This not good. I remember reading 10 years ago about forecasts of the Atlantic circulation slowing in coming decades and the impact it would have. Jolly old England is going to need to bundle up a lot more! Even the beaches in Spain won't be particularly warm if I re!ember right. But I think Boston might warm up a bit, maybe even get a bit more snow. ;)

We made the top 100 companies to work for in the US! This is actually quite amazing as 5 or 6 years ago this would have been completely unthinkable. Cadence had the reputation for buying technology but not developing much internally.

I am amazed at the change Lip-Bu Tan has made since becoming CEO. He put smart technologists in charge, fired the people who tried to play politics and constantly beats the drum of driving internal development. And funds it.

You sure did make a great move!  You may be the first person I've known who works for a top-100 company! And to think, I'm even related to you!

Fun show with the security researchers from +Galois, Inc.​ talking about cyber-physical security and how one can do things like remotely disable the brakes on most cars. They were the ones who demonstrated just that on 60 Minutes, and this show goes into far more detail about techniques such as formal proving of software systems. Interview starts about an hour in.

Just stumbled on this post, a very interesting take on the past elections. Unfortunately it's both insightful and depressing, at least for anyone who would like to see Washington become even slightly more sane. 
For Republicans looking for ways that the party can once again take the lead in building a nationally relevant governing agenda, there is one vital takeaway from this year's election. It starts wit...

For computer folks... A team found a vulnerability in a common hotel WiFi router that let the completely take it over. The vulnerability? An unauthenticated rsync daemon with root access! Yes, they could slurp off the whole setup and write back whatever they want. Convenient, no?

I read this as I am about to checkout of a hotel. I may have to peek and see what routers they use...

F# is up to #11 on the Tiobe Index??? Popularity indexes don't mean much but I'm surprised because a couple of years ago it was a niche language. F# is perhaps my favorite language in terms of the balance of expressiveness, performance, and crazy low rate of errors in running code but it feels more foreign than a lot of languages. The focus is on functional, rather than object-oriented, programming and it doesn't use syntax with a C-lineage like  C++, Java, C#, etc. I think it has a lot to offer so I'm happy to see it growing so quickly, I'm just pleasantly surprised. #FSharp
TIOBE Index for March 2015. March Headline: All time high for F# at position 11. Microsoft's programming language F# is about to sneak into the top 10. It is not clear why F# is gaining popularity. Possible reasons might be the F# web-programming framework WebSharper and the promotional work of ...

This is a nice change from the standard "we're completely screwed" view of our healthcare system to a more positive "we're slightly less screwed than we thought" view. :)

+Jason McCampbell we all pay for it in our taxes and everyone has access to it. Had this system in New Zealand, Australia and UK - all the places I have lived. To me, access to health care is like a human right. Can't imagine what it's like to have to mortgage the house so a child can get treatment.

We finally made it out to see our first movie in ... a year or two? .. and saw Citizen Four this weekend. It's primarily the interview footage of Edward Snowden as he starts to take Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald through the documents he leaked and their realization of the magnitude of it (we're talking Pentagon Papers-level). It's well done and good for starting a discussion for sure. I only wish perhaps they provided a bit more context for the magnitude of some of the capabilities in place in terms of what can be captured and analyzed. Either way, it's a good story and interesting to see the actual footage - not actors.

Crazy, I drove past this Denny's just as the fire department was arriving. It was pretty clearly toast at that point already. I hope the roof repair company has good insurance. 
12:12 update: A Denny’s restaurant in Northwest Austin was destroyed in a fire Saturday morning, according to fire officials.

Food is ok, maybe trying a little too hard. Beer list isn't bad, has a couple of good beers.

Clean, descent wifi, and walking distance to a number of (mostly chain) restaurants. The free breakfast is considerably better than most, including made-to-order omelets and pancakes. Easy access to the Coyote Creek run/walk/bike trail is across the street.

Great place for kids, we go for the playground. Burgers are fine and they have a better than average (for kid-oriented burger places) selection of healthier options. Beer selection is improving, too, though I'd like to see more local beers.

Both of our kids love going here and the teachers and staff are excellent. They have a wide variety of activities for the kids from leaning shapes and colors to splash pad time. They even offer swimming lessons and have brought in a petting zoo before.
