Re-read my first longform piece on Bitcoin from 2011 tonight, and it's certainly interesting to compare the stark contrast between the ecosystem and the discourse around it at the time -- a time when most journalists in and out of tech didn't understand it and considered it either a scam or stupid -- then and now.

Bizarre Facebook behaviour: There is only one person on Facebook for whom I get push notifications to my iPhone every time they post something. They happen to be the one person who I've hidden from my feed. I wonder if some engineer is playing a joke on me.

Quiet, or everyone might start to think that facebook does not care about them.

Mixed feelings: new season of Chuck starts tomorrow. Good because my son insists we watch it together and every minute with the kids is great. Bad because I secretly really, really hate that bloody show, it just gets worse with each episode.

Unfortunately, he's not quite ready for The Walking Dead.

Dick Smith has discontinued their Funway into Electronics kits just as Axl is getting old enough to start learning, and everything else widely available for kids these days is stupidly dumbed down (like this sort of thing: http://www.theelectronicshobbyist.com/kit/snap-circuits.shtml). Anyone know of a good alternative available in Australia?
