The situation here in California is serious and we have to get smart and act wisely. (So does the rest of the world.) But it's not Planet of the Apes serious. Yet.

Lawmakers are proposing emergency legislation, state officials are clamping down on watering lawns and, as California enters a fourth year of drought, some are worried that the state could run out of water.

SO underrecognized and underappreciated.  One of the top 10 to 20 groups of all time.

My Vent Du Jour, sent via the feedback form in Google Contacts:

I knew where my G+ circles were. I knew where my Contacts were. I absolutely didn't want them stirred together. I can't find "My Contacts," the people I've deliberately saved as Contacts. G+ is not Facebook, and isn't that the point? It's supposed to be more global. But I don't want all those thousands of people in my Contacts. Somebody at Google needs to go work for AOL Mail, where they can commit less FUBAR. People actually use Gmail and we need it to be a serious tool for communication, not a social media toy. 

Thank you for letting me vent. :-)

A Way With Words: a meditation on finding meaning. Whose job is it to explain art?

“It’s good. I like it. You sure have a way with words.” “Thanks.” “What does it mean?” That always makes me smile, and a couple of answers pop to mind: “How the hell would I know? I only wrote it.” Or perhaps, “Well what does it mean to you?” Not good.…

This article is really about stress, sleep deprivation, and an interesting yogic breathing technique. That it can be used for falling asleep is tangential, but also interesting.

The simple method takes hardly any time, and can be done pretty much anywhere

Brilliant. Not condoning violence, but explaining that its causes are systemic. Which begs the question: why aren't we all protesting?

A new way to work? i can not wait to test one.!

A little bit more...
This summer, ASUS will launch a new type of Chrome device: the Chromebit. Smaller than a candy bar, the Chromebit is a full computer that will be available for less than $100. By simply plugging this device into any display, you can turn it into a computer. It’s the perfect upgrade for an existing desktop and will be really useful for schools and businesses.

So whether you’re looking for a smaller Chrome device that packs a big punch or a laptop that can do back bends, there’s a Chromebook for you...and for everyone else, too.

Turtles like 'em too! And don't you wish you had tentacle eyes? Some of the humblest creatures have some of the coolest parts. We wouldn't care about smartphones if we had eyes like that.

Can Shatner save us from drying up and blowing away? ...Beam me up, Scotty. There's no water down here.

William Shatner. He’s 84 years old, looks 65, and juggles a schedule that would exhaust a team of 10. Book projects, TV projects, tech projects, horse-riding projects, charity projects. And now, a project to save California.
