Dear Netflix,

According to this article (http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-32052736) Top Gear presenters are on the open market. You should seize this opportunity and put UK Top Gear on the global platform it deserves (so us in the US don't have to wait for new episodes).

This is an opportunity for you netflix, get on that. Suggested names to avoid copyright/naming issues: "Flop Flear", or "Schmop Schmear"... it doesn't really matter, people really just want to see Clarkson, Hammond, and May together driving things that go fast.

Dear creators of Banshee,

You should seriously consider centering an entire spinoff series around Job. 

That is all.

The NYT did a piece on vaccination rates in California. There's an interesting map visualization to go along with.

The CDC claims herd immunity needs a 92-94% immunization rate to be sustainable.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/02/06/us/california-measles-vaccines-map.html
More than a quarter of schools in California have measles-immunization rates for kindergarteners that are below the standard the C.D.C. says is needed to maintain so-called herd immunity.

This is an awesome read. Puts a lot of perspective on technology and science IMO.

In case I haven't said it for a while... I hate javascript. There goes half a day looking for a name collision.

One of my big fixations has been namespaces. Issues seem to creep up around them all the time as systems scale. I've thought for years that the SSN system is fragile and should really be rethought - in a world where many bit uniq identifiers are possible and don't require human readability. So why do we still have SSNs? 

I just noticed I wrote "unique" as "uniq". As a unix/linux nerd, I'm keeping it. 
 
correlation may not be causation, but it might be identity.
by Bob Sullivan, ThirdCertainty The next time a company tells you that it wants your information, but “Don’t worry, it’s anonymized,” don’t believe it. A group of researchers from MIT proved this week that it can identify almost anyone using just four pieces of information in a supposedly anonymized database of credit card transactions — …

I've always pronounced "uniq" as the singular of UNIX.

Here's some interesting data about the rate of measles cases before and after the introduction of the vaccine per state over time.

It would be interesting to have a similar visualization of rate of autism cases. I bet there's no correlation between the uptick in autism diagnosis and the introduction of the vaccine.

Not that anyone who does not vaccinate their kids cares, but Tynan DeBold and Dov Friedman for the Wall Street Journal show the change in number of cases for various diseases after a vaccination is...

Embd is a golang toolkit for raspberry pi and now supports the second gen. This should be fun.
