Here's a question for my network on the interwebs ...

Yesterday, I was sitting and having a stimulating conversation with colleagues in computer science about robots and UAVs.  I know a little about the former (I'm a bit of a geek) and a little about the latter (I've been involved in my employer's efforts to get a COA to fly UAVS).  At some point, someone said that UAVs are robot-like, in many ways (please weigh in +John Siracusa) and then the topic turned to the idea of co-robots.

It sounds like co-robots are robots that work in tandem with a human to multiply the human's ability to achieve some goal or carryout some function.

So my question to my network of interwebian friends is this:  what are some examples of human tasks that could be enhance with co-robots?  Bonus points will go to those tasks that require robots that combine UAV-like abilities with terrestrial (e.g., walking) abilities.

Good news
I am proposing the FCC use its Title II authority to implement and enforce open internet protections, banning paid prioritization, and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services.

Thanks you and Happy Holiday to whoever in Santa Paula found my driver's license and mailed it back to me, today.

Actually, Happy Holidays to everyone, regardless your stripe of faith, be it Festivus Pole or Flying Spaghetti Monster and everything in between.

A christmas letter brought sad news that a teacher, mentor, and friend passed away this year.  John Pfaltzgraff was one of my gradschool profs at UNC.  He and his wife, Nancy, became family friends, and we've stayed in touch for almost 20 years since I earned my Ph.D. 

John was a gentle soul, superb scholar, and a man who loved his family.  He did it right.  And although I think he passed too soon, he probably passed with no regrets.  I can only hope to do as well.

It's always interesting to see something from another's perspective:
The latest installment in a continuing series in which American events are described using the tropes and tone normally employed by the American media to describe events in other countries. NEW YORK CITY, United States—The heavily armed security forces in this large and highly militarized country have long walked the streets with...

I parallel park every day, and this is a good reminder of winning technique.  I forget to turn the wheels at the start.
 
Magic! Look Mah! Parallel parking like a boss.

Parallel parking can be such a challenge when the space is tight.

Some of these cartoons you've probably seen in the last 24 hours, but many you have not.

I know an asshole truly deserving of recognition.  He lives and works in Missouri, however, so I don't know how to give him the recognition he's earned.
 
National Asshole Awareness Day

Based on several threads I was involved in yesterday, I am honored by the recognition of all the hard work and effort.  I'd like to thank my parents and teachers for the motivation and encouragement.  And Aaron James for writing a whole book about Assholes and Bitches*.  And whenever I feel my attitude slipping into friendly or nice or tolerant, all I have to do is read the comments on any article that still allows them, and my strength returns.
