Yesterday's #brew  day (again with +Jesse Roberts, and others), complete with brew cat. Today's fermentation photos, from this morning (clean blow-off water) and this evening, shortly after lifting the temp control to allow for some wonderful warming and making this more of a Belgian dubbel/dark strong ale.

Those watches. So slick, if it actually works like that.
 
Sharing what’s up our sleeve: Android coming to wearables

Today we’re excited to extend Android to wearables. And we’re starting with the most familiar wearable—watches. We’re already working with several consumer electronics manufacturers, including Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung; chip makers Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm; and fashion brands like the Fossil Group to bring you watches powered by Android Wear later this year. If you’re a developer, check out developer.android.com/wear to download a Developer Preview so you can tailor your existing app notifications for watches powered by Android Wear. Look out for more developer resources and APIs coming soon.

Do YOU know where the Ukraine is?

Study from Washington Post throws out a nice tidbit...even when controlling for other demographic factors, people who didn't know where the Ukraine was located were more likely to support military intervention. Interesting tidbit along the lines of our #LSC875  analyses...

OK, and here's the first such watch. If you can get their website to load, it has all the sample images from Google's Android Wear demo video. About time someone got a smartwatch design to be classy!
 
It's time a watch told you more than just the time. http://goo.gl/pQdeAM

18 hours after pitching the imperial IPA with WY1272, it's quite happy. Even noisier now than when I took this a half hour ago. +Jesse Roberts, we done good.

Some of the new features include an add-on for tracking changes, one of the biggest things that I miss coming from Word.

An interesting entry into the Chromebook world. High-powered, long battery life, the Chromebook 2 from Samsung sounds like it could be a serious competitor when it launches in April. http://blogs.computerworld.com/laptops/23599/samsung-chromebook-2
