I don't really want to know how this story ends.
 
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) introduced a bill to extend through 2020 a controversial surveillance authority under the USA Patriot Act.   “The move comes as a bipartisan group of lawmakers in both houses is preparing legislation to scale back the government’s spying powers under Section 215 of the Patriot Act.”   
The move comes amid a bipartisan bid to scale back the government’s spying powers under the Patriot Act.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that he has not visited my personal web site.

The only time I respond to recruiters is when I tell them something like "You know how sales and marketing likes to say that they can do their scummy ad campaign because they are distinct from engineering?  Well, I have seen your company do awesome engineering, but I would never consider working for your company because of their past industry practices.  <examples>.  Good luck filling your position."  I know it doesn't move the needle, but maybe if it's a good recruiter they think about moving to a better company.

It's just a matter of time before I give in, buy one of these and then worry endlessly that I'll crash it into the ocean.

According to my Facebook feed, the Sifteo crew that was acquired by 3dr a while back was highly involved in the Solo.

Turns out drones are now illegal in NC so I'll have to find something with good enough range that I can stay hidden.

+Ray Cromwell I can't reproduce it now but it has happened several times this week. Each time I'm trying to paste a URL taken directly out of Chrome's omni bar and my Cmd-V's produce only frustration. I even pasted into sublime text to make sure there was something on the clipboard. Not sure what's going on.

Oh, c'mon. Compared to the amazing view of the shotgun shack hanging off the outside of Elliott St. Pub? This beautiful view of the ocean has nothing on that.

Some days I learn a thing and I feel incredibly dumb for having worked around its (assumed) absence for so long. TIL something obvious, non-blocking send using select on Go channels. Man, how did I not know about this and I feel like an idiot because it now seems so obvious. (I included non-blocking recv just for completeness).

The problem of discoverability of new features of a programming language is still hard. And worse yet, you cannot truly understand it, until you have used the features. Not a critique of +The Go Programming Language  but just any APIs or programming languages.

I ordered some shoes off of +Cabela's a few months back and ever since then our mailbox has been filled with shooting supply magazines. My wife is really pissed at me because she thinks I'm hiding a stash of AR-15s somewhere in the house. Cabela's, I really just wanted the shoes now you are both irritating me and sending me a means to acquire weapons.

How many threads does it take to start Android Studio?

Over 100, I guess.

This app must be using that trick that +James Robinson taught me where you just keep adding more threads and your code just keeps getting faster.

Story
Introduction
I'm Design + Engineering. I used to work for Google on Chrome & WebKit. I'm responsible for the existence of Speed Tracer and I was an early member of the GWT team. Before that I studied under John Maeda at the MIT Media Lab. And before that, I co-founded Connexxia which was kind of marketing through social networks before that was a good idea. I'm also a triathlete obsessed with swimming, cycling and running. More at http://kellegous.com/about.

Alas, if you didn't make it to the Indian Pass Raw Bar in its prime you missed the magic. This place was a local treasure of fantastic food and the ultimate in laid back coastal atmosphere. Fantastic steamed and baked oysters coupled with serve yourself beer from the cooler, I planned trips around returning to this place because each experience was memorable. This year, though, the magic is gone. The popularity has destroyed this gem of the forgotten coast. First, we had trouble getting seated. There were a number of people waiting, but that wasn't the issue here. Either due to lack of organization or favors for locals, we were repeatedly moved down the seating list. It took an uncomfortable discussion to bring this to someone's attention to finally get us a seat. The food was as wonderful as it ever has been. Strangely, though, our order never fully made it to the table. After some time we asked only to find out they were out of oysters and hadn't bothered to tell us that our food wouldn't be coming. The super casual checkout, which was once charming now became the subject of suspicion as we spent the trip home discussing whether they had charged us for the food we never received. The consensus was that they must have, given the price. We left hungry and focused on the disappointment. I have never left the Indian Pass Raw Bar focused on anything but the positive experience we had just had. Oh but if you had been to this place in its prime. It was a treasure and sadly it will be missed dearly. If you missed, I'm sorry but there is no more magic here.
