I am SO FREAKING EXCITED ABOUT THIS. Though I shall wait a bit, maybe til January, before I buy it, because it's a tiiiiiiiiiny bit expensive for me right now :3
 
Boo! Just in time for Halloween, we’re serving up two new treats for Android fans: KitKat (Android 4.4) and Nexus 5 developed with LG. Super excited to take the wraps off KitKat - packed with lots of cool features that deliver a smarter and more engaging user experience. And in Nexus 5, Google Now and Search are always at your fingertips or activated with a simple ‘Ok, Google’. Now is evolving with many new powerful use cases to bring the right information from across the web to you. 

Also really excited that Kitkat will work on 512 MB devices, so that all entry level smartphones can get access to the latest version as well. This will really help us get Android to the next billion users...

Been a busy week for me and I have some catching up to do outside work -- ‘Ok, Google, ideas for last minute Halloween costumes...’

A Primer on Sexism
I frequently find that I'll post something about feminism, and shortly thereafter within the comments section there will appear a young man who lacks the basic background knowledge to participate meaningfully in the conversation: he doesn't understand what "privilege" means, for example, or doesn't get why affirmative action isn't the same thing as sexism.  These individuals are problematic, because the time spent educating them is time taken away from participating in the conversation at a higher level yourself.   What they need is a primer, a basic introduction to the problem, the terminology, a sort of remedial level feminist introduction so that they can be sent off to learn the basics and then return when they're prepared to participate in the conversation at a meaningful level.  

Here's a nice primer I recommend.  It was written from the perspective of sexism in tech, but can be used as an introduction to feminism in general.

Here's an early computer pioneer. It's Margaret Bullen pictured two weeks ago and 70 years ago when she would have been working on the world's first electronic computer. Her job was to wire the Colossus computers at Bletchley Park. "I can't believe I was doing all that wiring for a couple of years and didn't ask what it was all about -- but that's the way things were back then!"

She came back for the opening of the Women in Computing Gallery at TNMOC and was pictured in front of the Colossus Rebuild.

Randomly rewatching. Alas, if only the 'Harmony' ship had not been recently resurrected...

Happy Ada Lovelace Day!  In 1843, Ada wrote a method for calculating a sequence of the Bernoulli numbers with Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine.  This algorithm is widely considered the first computer program ever written.

In honor of Ada Lovelace Day, share your favorite women in #STEM stories with us using the hashtag #AdaLovelaceDay .  Who inspired you to get interested in science, technology, engineering, or math?
