The future is now.

I was very, very tempted to stand in line at the mic during Q&A time. Just to let Brad Bird know that at the end of Iron Giant, when the Giant flies headlong into that nuclear missile to save Hogarth and the town from annihilation, I didn't get choked up at all. I'm far to manly to have shed a single tear, even when the Giant remembers Hogarth telling him that he can be whoever he wants to be, and he says "Superman" before sacrificing himself at the edge of space. It must have been someone else getting all emotional about it, maybe someone sitting right behind me in the theater so it seemed like it was me, but it wasn't me, like I said, I'm too tough.
Athena: " Daddy, you should go on moms walk dot com."
Me: "What? Oh, is that from that commercial we saw on TV earlier? Why should I go there?"
Athena: "Because you're SOOO SLOW! Hahaha!"
Later, after applying salve to that epic burn, I mention it to Ann.
Me: "So she told me I should go to 'moms walk dot com'."
Athena, chiming in: "Yeah, because when you try to run with me, you're too slow!"
Me: "Yeah, I got it, kiddo."
Athena: "Slow like walking instead of running like me."
Me: "I got it."
Athena: "Slow like a snail. That's how slow you are daddy."
One of the things that I think has helped me as a manager is being genuinely interested in what my teammates are passionate about outside of work. Not feigning interest, being interested. It's surprising how important it is to take some time, maybe grab lunch, and just listen.
we should totally go, you know, for the children. Inspire a love of engineering in them, via robots destroying each other.

Your feelings are real. They just happen to be factually wrong, and completely missing the point. This article from Cracked explains the situation really well:
I guess they are covering all the exoplanets.
I don't think Lifehacker can solve the problem by asking their readers to pay money for good applications, but they make a good point. If there's some software that you use on a regular basis, why not pay a few bucks for it? This applies to Android and iPhone apps as well.
Coasting by with the free version is very, very tempting - everyone loves free stuff! But maybe if more people were willing to devote a fraction of their yearly Starbucks spend to getting the paid version of their apps, fewer companies and developers would resort to bundling crapware.
That time and I were at the Little Sahara Sand Dunes in Utah really really early in the morning on a dark, clear night...
Conditions were perfect to photography the Milky Way, and the results from my Nikon D750 blew me away. Who knew there could be that much detail in the night sky???
This is a two-exposure blend. One for the stars, another for the light-painted sand dunes.
