I should have added some details.  Nate Silver is the guy who's been doing the super accurate election forecasting.  

He licensed the name of his blog to the new york times in 2010 and wrote for them for a few years.

ESPN ended up buying the fivethirtyeight brand and committed a lot of resources into it to expand it into areas like economics and science.

The ESPN-owned site just launched last week.

It turns out that many of the old forest fire lookouts can be rented for overnight stays.  They look pretty bare bones but the views are amazing.

Here's one near lake shasta:  http://www.recreation.gov/camping/Hirz_Mountain_Lookout/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=75234

And a list of available lookouts in Calfornia: https://www.google.com/search?q=lookout+site:www.recreation.gov+CA&hl=en

So cool -- thanks for reminding me about these! I remember hearing about them on NPR years ago, but had forgotten to book a trip. This is definitely on my list of things to do this summer.

Of course, storing encrypted files on a file server counts as providing that information to the NSA.

Check out a new ios game called Threes!
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/threes!/id779157948

Not yet available for android.  Somewhat odd given how simple it is.
