Some amazingly cool visualizations of all kinds of statistical data about the US.
Ever since I found out about the Statistical Atlas of the United States, it annoyed me that there wasn't one in the works for the 2010 Census due to cuts in funding. So I recreated the original 187...

More great stuff on #flexbox  from +Smashing Magazine. I've been a fan of flexbox for ages because of how powerful it is, and the ability to create complex layouts, especially for web apps.

Wow, we saw something similar happen, kind of crazy, but its nature!
 
Poo-nado!

Fascinating post from +Scott Jenson about home automation that echoed many of the things I learned as I put together my home automation system.

I came to the same conclusion that humans aren't algorithmic, but I wanted something that would work when I wanted and not when I didn't.

For example in my system at home, pressing one button puts my apartment in to "morning" mode, it turns on the lights in the bedroom, living room, and bathroom, turns the air conditioner in the living room on (if it's above a certain temperature) and turns the stereo on to NPR.  

When I leave, pushing another button puts the house into "away" mode, turning off all of the lights, the air conditioners, stereo and enabling the DropCam.

Similarly, if the apartment is in "away" mode, and I come home, a door switch on the front door turns on the appropriate lights, if the inside temperature is above a certain level, turns the AC on, and based on a BLE beacon I carry with me, it turns the DropCam off.

Everything is also connected to the cloud, so I can turn the AC on or off, adjust the temperature so it's nice and cool when I get home, adjust the lights, turn the stereo/TV on and off, without being home.

I'll readily admit that this works really well because it's one person in a small apartment, but it works well, and it works every time. Maybe it's not so much macros, but simplification of repetitive tasks. To me, that's where the biggest value comes from.

I think voice control is still a ways off yet, I've looked at a few options, but I'm not sure it's ready yet for what I want to do with it.
 
My latest blog post: Jeeves must go. We are so enamored with allure of home automation that we're blind to not only it's deep downsides but the very practical and valuable things that we can do right now.

I've only got the lighting part of the automation puzzle (so far, but the AC is a compelling add-on). By far the best part is having single-button access to set whole-home scenes. With two kids who are always leaving lights on, this one simple thing makes me inordinately happy.

I totally agree with the idea of the quantified home. My smart switches give me weekly reports of my usage patterns, giving me insight into how I (and my kids) use certain appliances.

Yah, I have grazed others.. but at the time I had used too much of the sitebuidlder templates and did not wish to change the look/feel of the site. Now I have learned so much I am now creating my own simple basic look/feel and have deleted enough template stuff  (To eliminate drag) now that much of it is my own and transfer would not / should not  be all that hard. Question is though which site building tool requires the least SEO and is search engine friendly?
I also don't like following the herd as then I am in completion with them and only blend in with the masses, graveling  for the top of the heavily greased search engine totem pole.

+Pete LePage I am receiving errors within GWT for mobile usability. However, it seems thatvi've followed developer guidelines for mobile. Also, when I run a site: on my domain Google is stating that my pages are mobile friendly. This is a bit confusing. Finally, whenever I check mobile friendliness I receive confirmation that my pages are mobile friendly. Do I still need to take action on these pages?

Woot! My Responsive Web Design Fundamentals Udacity course just launched!

https://www.udacity.com/course/ud893

Start by exploring what makes a site responsive and how some common responsive design patterns work across different devices. From there, you’ll learn how to create your own responsive layout using the viewport tag and CSS media queries. As you proceed, you’ll experiment with major and minor breakpoints, and optimizing text for reading.

Good pizza, amazing (secret - you have to ask about it) wine list and fabulous salads. But the thing that put this place over the top for me was the outdoor patio. It was like being in a small piazza in Italy, eating, drinking and having a great time with friends.

Wow, spectacular dining experience. Did the tasting menu and loved every course. I'm not a big lobster fan but the warm lobster salad left me wanting more. The duck breast over the corn salad was amazing - the corn tasted so fresh and crunchy, the duck was tender and didn't taste fatty at all. The portion sizes were perfect, I left happily full!

Solidly good service with a pleasant attitude, the food was tasty and well cooked. The carpaccio should have been about half as thick as it was, but hell, I got more and it was tasty so I won't complain.

I started the evening with a glass of wine, which tasted a bit off. I asked the bartender if he would pour himself some to see if it was just me, and rather then do that, he opened a new bottle and offered me a taste of that - the previous bottle was off, and he poured me a new glass. I had the filet, which was cooked perfectly, and nicely seasoned. It was a good size, not too much but enough to be filling for anyone who's hungry. I'd definitely go back!
