Your newest delivery man A few evenings ago, as the library was closing, I was sitting in my car in the parking lot catching up on some things on my phone. Suddenly I heard a tap at the window. There was a woman outside and she was pointing toward the sky. I got out to find out what she was so excited about. There were some red and green blinky lights hovering in the air above the street a half of a block away from where we were sta...

You may not need to upgrade to Windows 10 I have long waited for the day that the platform I use would be primarily the internet browser. Years ago, I installed a Linux based desktop distribution and stripped out much of the software aside from Firefox. This was when Google Docs had yet to become Google Drive and Google’s Chrome browser was in very infantile stages. It sort of worked. There was not much for web based services for vid...

I read a book and then wrote a thing saying that it is a pretty good book and if you are looking for something to read you might consider this book.
Time to read a bit more. I am not sure what lead me to reading this book. It was certainly a recommendation that resulted from the use of some algorithm, probably Amazon or Overdrive, based on books I have read in the past. But I have no idea which book or books that I have read provoked this recommendation. Many times throughout I found myself wondering how this was related to other books I have enjoyed. Nonetheless, it was an excel...

Food. Mmmmmm....

#GMO   #HR1599   #Food  
Created by man or by nature? Some folks seem to be up in arms today because of a vote in the House on GMO labeling. In a 275-150 vote, the House passed HR 1599, the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015. Rep. K. Michael Conaway (R-TX) issued a statement today about the passing of this act saying, “Advances in technology have allowed the U.S. to enjoy the safest, highest quality, most abundant, diverse and affordable supply of f...

I have been admiring the images coming from the New Horizons spacecraft. I have also recently enjoyed The Pluto Files by Neil deGrasse Tyson. I wrote about it.
On this eve of the Pluto flyby of the New Horizons spacecraft I could not help but think of how much has changed for the planet since the probe’s launch over nine years ago in January of 2006. Indeed nothing actually changed for Pluto itself, but for the way we define and classify him (her?) and the presumed hundreds of other celestial bodies like it. See, when New Horizons launched, Pluto was still classified as a planet. In August o...

Everblocks are a life-size version of the locking blocks you know and love. They're more than a toy. They might be a real method for building.

Self-driving things. My take. Part II
The new Tesla? Code named T-Edsel? This is a follow up to part 1 of Kirk's look at self driving cars. I cannot say I particularly enjoy driving. I enjoy the convenience that comes with driving. I like being able to go anywhere I please at a near whim. But the experience could be improved as far as I am concerned. I could find better use of my time than staring at the road. Sometimes, if I have the extra time, I take public transport...

Introduction

I stay at home with my six year old son, Jupiter, and my three year old son, Tsunami. I am a software guy and otherwise a technology geek. If it talks in zeros and ones, I want to be its friend. I enjoy spending spare time with my life partner, Chris. I believe in the good of humans and see no need for (or evidence of) divine intervention. Overall, I try to be the good sort of human toward others that I would like to see other humans be.
