Fascinating. "Imagine if voice calls operated this way and your carrier could decide if you could receive a call from your bank, your grandma or your doctor based on whether they’re on some carrier-approved list. Seriously, imagine that. Zero people, probably even the carriers themselves, would support that plan. Yet it is exactly what happens with SMS, and it’s assumed that’s just how it is. This situation exists because SMS is not afforded common carriage protection like voice is."
People have wondered how an Internet without net neutrality would work. Net neutrality is more than just a debate, it’s not a hypothetical, and it’s real..

#autoawesom  of a shot mistakenly taken as I was putting my camera away.  This is ridiculous.

That 120 film everyone's suddenly shooting on these days is pretty expensive, too. You got to be careful.

Do you play Kerbal Space Program? Do you have an Android device? Well then consider downloading this nifty reference app, Kerbal Space App, lovingly constructed by +Jim Pekarek 

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.amagi82.kerbalspaceapp

It's super shiny and it's FREE. (Also he is using it as a resume as he applies for actual programming jobs, so reviews and feedback would help him out a lot!)
Kerbal Space App allows you to access an extensive variety of information a...

You may notice my G+ profile photo on there.  It's from this past week's Whiskey Wednesday, the theme of which is "Nils is King for the Day."  Everybody wore nametags that said "Nils" and crowns with my face wearing a crown on it.  It was very meta.

More like, how can you bear not to ride to work?  It's the best part of my day.

It's raining a lot in SF and the winds are very high, so the Bay is grumpy.  I shot some video on my walk from the Embarcadero to my office.  It was pretty intense.

Felicia Day wrote one of the most heartfelt, sad and powerful responses to the whole #GamerGate  nonsense that I've yet seen. I don't know how you could read it and not be profoundly angry. Or if you're part of #GamerGate , feel guilty for your involvement in the debasement of gamer culture and the harm you're doing to women in gaming. (Post is here: http://thisfeliciaday.tumblr.com/post/100700417809/the-only-thing-i-have-to-say-about-gamer-gate)

And predictably, within minutes she was doxxed in the comments. Offering profound proof of exactly what she'd been saying.

And then Chris Kluwe tweets the really killer point, in the screenshot below. (For context, Kluwe's profanity-filled rant on the evils of #GamerGate  can be found here: https://medium.com/the-cauldron/why-gamergaters-piss-me-the-f-off-a7e4c7f6d8a6). I can't imagine how any rational observer, putting these all together, could possibly deny how problematic #GamerGate  really is.

If anybody tells you it's about "ethics in journalism" you know immediately that they're an asshole.

I will only post one shitty cellphone photo of the fireworks today.  I think this gives a pretty good idea of the atmosphere, with the fireworks exploding half in the fog and half below it.  It was gorgeous.

+Beth Winegarner can comment, but publicity-whoring personal injury lawyer with a taste for wacko clients seemed to be a large part of it.

They give away pant-leg holders advertising cycle-injury representation in SFBC's BTWD goodie bags, which is how the subject came up.

Awesome.  This was one of the least-clear turns on Market.  Glad to see some positive changes being made (and just in time for Bike to Work Day, as often seems to happen here).
Doing the Wiggle should be a little easier, thanks to new green-backed sharrows and plastic posts installed by the SFMTA last week. These help bike commuters navigate the entrance to the Duboce bikeway, at Market and Buchanan Streets. The sharrows are intended to establish a clearer path for ...
