An Afternoon at Kelating Beach | Beautiful Things I Saw Today
There are so many beaches in this tropical island of Bali, Kelating beach definitely is not the best one, but this lesser known beach has its own charm. Today I spent a lovely beautiful afternoon at the beach. It was cloudy and windy, but still it was a beautiful day.

Can AI digest this?
Recently, I felt so sick reading about someone bragging about his "achievement" having his collection featured by G+ with thousands of pluses, and he was giving "advice" to real content creators and cockily bragging about how he has achieved all those "successful" posts through his "smart" posting habits.
What made me feel so sick is that, this guy didn't create anything, he just simply pulled those images from the internet, and posted them into his collection, and for some reason due to trending themes or other factors, G+ picks it up, and made that collection trending over and over again.
Some say those who are running G+ today have no idea what they are doing. This collection has been selected to suit the taste of a small group of people running the show simply because it appears to broader audience. So original content creators are less important in that sense. If that's true, I think the future of G+ is sealed, maybe it is about time a strong believer like me admit that I have been wrong to have always stood up for G+ and maybe it is time to stop inviting people to G+.
But let's stay positive. I would like to say this is an AI failure.
Have a look at this beautiful image from my friend +Alex Lapidus​. Can AI picks it up as art with its beautiful flow of light that transforms our notion of digital photography from the rigid bit-to-bit patterns to a more humane abstract? I have doubt that any state-of-the-art algorithm today can do that, but we are humans, maybe we can come up with a better idea, as users of G+, to make G+ a better place. The new G+ transformation is set, I hope there will be no more major changes, so it is up to us to use whatever is left of the old G+ to make this a better platform. I share the frustrations of many, but I think we can do something to make this platform ours again. What do you think?

Multitudes

Some abductions happen not with a bang, but with a whimper. In transit, day after day, week after week, the multitudes cease to notice their surroundings; they trudge back and forth as their world slowly fades from around them...
