Sky Lanterns at Kayla LaRocco's Party

My old-n-busted phone did better than expected at this low-light task.

Sallie LaRocco was gracious enough to include us in their celebration.  Thank you so much.

Mike and Cherly Samardzija are a quick study at balloon launching.

2-factor authentication, without stress

Using this app on your phone and the desktop removes most of the stress of enabling more secure Internet accounts.

If you haven't done this, take a look and re-think whether or not you can do this.  I'll bet you can, and not be stressed about it.

It was clear to me, I wasn't getting much out of Facebook, the way I was using it...

Facebook has made a ton of changes to the way it works in the past two years, but I was still trying to use it the same way, and failing.  I really didn't know where to start to correct this issue.

My better half, Denise, was clearly getting more out of Facebook than I was, but I didn't think she could succinctly explain what she was doing to get the results.  Once and a while I would look for articles, but I didn't notice many recent guides that focus on the gestalt of Facebook engagement and interest.

Then I happened upon this diamond in the rough.  It's not a polished howto guide and it's really short on comprehensive details.  But it did get me pointed in a direction and started to help me change my thinking so that I could start my relearning of managing my experience with Facebook.

We'll see where this leads, but instead of feeling like Facebook is not a information resource for me, I might be able to cultivate it into something worthwhile.

Be warned "Upworthy" and other link-bait-ish posts, I will be pruning these, no matter what cuteness you send my way ;)

A quick trip to see Stephen and Caroline, they didn't want to look like tourists and be in photos (I get it)...

Saturday was a great exploration of "A palace to $4 Toast", at The Mill.  Followed but a visit to the place that started the whole $4 toast phenom in SF, Trouble Coffe Shop in near Ocean Park.  We then had brunch and Outerlands (http://outerlandssf.com/), which is just down the street from Trouble.  We then went to Golden Gate part and tried to see the Conservatory of Flowers, but it was closed for the day.

We slept trough the category 6 earthquake on Sunday morning!  Then we went to Japantown and enjoyed window shopping at the shops.  We found a trove of books on small houses which were pretty inspiring.  We all could stand to do some downsizing.

On Monday, Denise and I went to Brenda's for breakfast and then really acted like tourists and went on a city bus tour.  We've never done anything like that before, and it was nice to see all of the touristy type things in a few hours.

What does copyright have to do with car repair? As ridiculous as it sounds, sections of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act could actually prevent car owners from looking under the hood—or even protecting themselves from vulnerabilities and malware. But there's something you can do.

Locking down your accounts is hard

Your digital identity, or what passes for one on the Interwebs, might be valuable to someone else. Reducing friction, so you use that identity, and locking it down so someone else can't grab it, is getting tougher all the time.

There are an increasing number of tech options to help, but just because you chain them all together, doesn't yeild the desired results. When the attacker is motivated enough. Security is hard. And what is reasonable for one is on a "one size fits all" answer.

Defending against humans is hard enough. When AI's start attacking, it's going to be pretty much game over, unless you have your own AI to defend you, and you've got mad skillz.

What has me thinking like this? William Gibon has a new book, just out. I won't read it for a while, but I have read the previous books. And I do think that some of his thoughts on AI and human nature hold water (in the small things we live with).

And some I now are moving their photos to Instagram because the feel it will be more private than FB... (Which may well be the case)

Anyway here is one more thing to consider while trying to maintain control over your digital identities. "Go outside", is good advice too.

Drift Trike, grown-up Big Wheel action!

I have to thank Ben Werner for pointing this out to me.  My kids had Big Wheels, but I was too old for them.  And I always wanted something this cool and knew that eventually it would happen...

North Carolina company...  Wear helmets kids!

Verizon Samsung KitKat Phones and Google+ Updates Don't Play Nice Together?

Ok, I was slow to update to KitKat on my old-ish Samsung SIII Verizon phone for a bunch of reasons, but doing so recently, I'm just a bit shocked that all of the compatibility issues are totally nailed at this point.

What am I talking about?  After rebooting a recently updated KitKat phone and auto-updating my apps, I get greeted by:

"Unfortunately VZWAVSSERVICE has stopped" 

We're rapidly approaching the release of Android L (the next version of the phone operating system) and carriers like Verizon can't get this figured out?

It's issues like this that will really make me consider going with a phone that uses a highly stock Android version.

Here's one way to get around this issue, but if you have a sufficient number of apps installed, it is less than ideal, and continues to remind you that Verizon and Google can't play nice...

http://youtu.be/ccEUEqFRQ7k

A fix that I'm trying is less conservative, turning the flagging service off (which I expect is what they would do, if I went into a Verizon store and I asked them to do something).  They would most likely ask me about some service that they want to provide, before doing so.  Here is a link to those instructions:

https://community.vzw.com/message/1126781#1126781

So after turning the service off, I have re-enabled Google Play Auto Update settings.

Agreed, I didn't need to bring Samsung into it, but thought someone might think it could be a handset issue, so I referenced the info. Should have done it differently...
