If you watched Spike Jonze's new movie Her, you probably also spent a few subsequent hours listening to Alan Watts (1915–1973) interpreting Eastern thought.

I don't usually do #caturday photos, but just wanted to say that sometimes I really envy my cat.

On this Fourth of July weekend, anyone who thinks social democracy is un-American doesn't know their history.

2,200 Radical Political Posters Digitized: A New Revolutionary Archive from the University of Michigan 
I recently heard someone say his college-bound nephew asked him, 'What's a union?' Whether you love unions, loathe them, or remain indifferent, the fact that an ostensibly educated young person might have such a significant gap in their knowledge should cause concern. A historic labor conflict, after all, provided the occasion for Ronald Reagan to prove his bona fides to the new conservative movement that swept him into power.

I <3 this era of artwork. I've a huge print of a suffrage poster in my living room, and it always gets comments.

Who Owns Your Face? http://trib.al/DrWj1ty
In June, government talks about how best to regulate facial recognition algorithms fell apart. But should a company need your permission before scanning your face? And does the technology really work?

Just use a famous person's face as an example. Say, Taylor Swift.

If the company is using a capture of her face for security purposes (as in a casino) to prevent loss, that's clearly non-infringing use.

If they use it to sell products or services, that's infringing.

The best case is always to simply ask. If a hotel chain wants to use my face to speed check-in, assign room preferences, or even to provide a cordial greeting - just ask if it's OK to associate my face with that use.

Odds are, if a company isn't willing to ask, their use is something I wouldn't approve of.

Isaac Asimov reads aloud  "The Last Question" in one sitting. It appeared in the November 1956 issue of Science Fiction Quarterly and Asimov said it was "by far my favorite story of all those I have written."

Woohoo! That is all. =^.^=
Animals have biological needs, says Agriculture Minister Pierre Paradis, whose new legislation includes fines of up to $250,000 for those who are cruel to animals as well as jail time for repeat offenders.

Trixie!
Trixie Garcia, daughter of the late Grateful Dead founder Jerry Garcia, was among the 40,000-plus fans who were brought to tears at the first Fare Thee Well concert on June 27. It was there, high above the stage where the "core four" (Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann) performed alongside Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio and keyboardists Bruce Hornsby and Jeff Chimenti, that a perfect rainbow appeared.

A crowd of approximately 10,000 people filled a sports arena to capacity in Wisconsin on Wednesday night in order to hear the person who has called for a "political revolution" in the United States explain why he should be the next president.

I'm hoping he is not like the other candidates and is true to his word!

Story
Tagline
A father, husband, programmer, librarian, and tattoo and sci-fi fan. A vegan, Quaker, Buddhist, and introvert. A 1979 Westfalia owner. And, a perpetual rambler who is rarely at ease.
Introduction
My tagline probably says it all, but in case not:

"Anything you want to know, just ask me,
I'm the world's most opinionated man.
I'll give you an answer if I can
Catch one passing through
That feels right for you.

Anything you want to know, just ask me,
It's worth every cent it costs.
And you know it's free for you,
Special deal.

Anything you want to know, it should be perfectly clear.
You see just beneath the surface of the mud,
There's more mud here...
Surprise." -- David Crosby

Things that interest me (feel free to add me to related circles):
  • Animals (veganism, vegetarianism, psychology, etc.)
  • Music (folk, rock, acoustic, bluegrass, old time, etc.)
  • Science (astronomy, cognitive science, health, etc.)
  • Programming (Java, XQuery, PHP, XML, etc.)
