So, I was watching my son leash the dogs to take for a walk, and for some reason I thought of George Jetson.

The Jetson's house, George takes the dog for a walk on this treadmill hanging over the edge of nothing, poking out into the cloud.

And I thought about why we have to walk the dogs so regularly.

What happens when Astro does his business? It's flung off into the void to land on the house of their neighbor in the cloud layer below?

Why do I think of these things?

Based on his work on liballocs and related.

liballocs: "a runtime system and C front-end for tracking allocations and their types, at run time, across a program's entire address space, with good performance (think: 0--10% slowdown)."

Radio broadcasts leave Earth at the speed of light. Scroll away from Earth and hear how far the biggest hits of the past have travelled. The farther away you get, the longer the waves take to travel there—and the older the music you’ll hear.

Wow, I used to make sandcastles like that when I was a kid.

(albeit with less amazing engineering)
Somerville resident Matt Kaliner's marvelous creations are celebrated on design websites—and have even inspired an Internet hoax that Scientific American tried to debunk.

Introduction
If you're adding me to a circle because you know me, send me a message so I can add you back (preferably via email or just post a message with the distribution set to "+Peter da Silva") because I can't keep track of notifications well enough to be sure I haven't missed someone... especially those of you who I know by an uncommon name.

If you're sending me a notification or an invitation to a community, and you don't know me, I *will* report you for spam. If you're sending me an invitation to a community and I do know you, I will just take this as permission to get sarcastic about it. This includes game notifications. I don't play games in Google Plus. I don't want to play games in Google Plus.
