Rocket moving to the pad tonight

In my head I read the above, which +SpaceX just tweeted, to the melody of: Blackbird singing in the dead of night. Exciting time to be alive.

Coming for brunch

We had two treats today (so far!): blueberry muffins hot out of the oven, and the sight of a hummingbird getting her nectar and ambrosia too.

The Force is strong in my family

Squee-ing with the rest of the internet and Planet Earth. In case you just got in from a galaxy far, far away, here's the new trailer: http://youtu.be/ngElkyQ6Rhs

My dad sneaked me into these movies when I was underage, in ridiculous old apartheid South Africa. That'll do for Throwback Thursday too! : )

I remember when the special editions came out in cinema, I watched the originals on VHS for weeks before. I got a bit excited like I did watching those originals. #chewiewerehome

Sacca and the skater king

This was a lot of people's favourite fireside chat of the conference I went to, because of the killer combination of cool and down-to-earth. Hawk and Sacca are full of heart and focused on philanthropy too.

They came across as regular guys, extolling the hustle. In fact, this is the interview in which Sacca said he couldn't wait for the (tech bubble) crash because it would weed out everyone but the hustlers.

Jason Calacanis is one of the best interviewers on the planet right now, teasing fall TV. Like the man said (on TWistartup's Twitter page): This show is your MBA.
Today’s episode features two superstars in their respective fields. Tony Hawk is the masterful professional skateboarder who catapulted his sport into the

The dread pirates robbed us
Game of Thrones leak

'Sadly, it seems the leaked four episodes of the upcoming season of Game of Thrones originated from within a group approved by HBO to receive them,” HBO said.  “We’re actively assessing how this breach occurred."

Ironically, the latest leak comes just as HBO is making GOT available to non-subscribers via HBO Now and Sling TV and is premiering the show simultaneously in 170 countries so fewer fans are tempted to go the piracy route.'

UPDATE 9 AM : HBO just issued a statement addressing the leak and the measures the network is taking. "Sadly, it seems the leaked four episodes of the upcoming season of Game of Thrones originated ...

They are a valid mode of self expression to me. The only reason I don't post many is because I am not often in a mood to appreciate the ones I take:) I still take them. Just sayin'. If your muse says post it you must post it in order to be true to your artistic heart.

This is the droid you're looking for

Who doesn't want a BB-8? It's just become the world's most desirable tech toy. Sign up for email updates! : )

What I want to know is: how did people think it was CGI? Did they not see 'handlers' in the wings and the cutie rolling onto the stage during the press conference -- not to mention the discussion that ensued? I guess not. If they could make R2 work all those years ago...

Here's footage, during which they acknowledge that CG would have been easier: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABzjUf3E_0c. The decision not to go that route bodes well, I think. 
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a small startup began a journey. And we're beyond excited to share the details with you as soon as we can.

Ever-increasing deviation from positive control

Delicious deck-view footage of Falcon 9's near-miss: 'the valve controlling the flow propellent and oxidizer to the engine wasn’t moving as fast as it should have, which meant the control impulses from the rocket’s computers couldn’t be acted upon as quickly as they should have been. This situation led to corrective control impulses, which in turn couldn’t be acted upon as quickly as they should have, leading to an ever-increasing deviation from positive control.'

My heart always lifts when Elon Musk makes another attempt at what is fated to succeed, sooner or later. Victory is inevitable. It lifts because, apart from the obvious (slipping the surly bonds of earth through his vehicle and vision), I am watching a mutation of the Moon landing. One day, perhaps five years from now (four?), it'll be Mars.

I am as united with others in the moment of liftoff, as everyone was around their TV sets -- as my kids and I will be around this screen for Mars Colony 1. More fortunate still, we get to liveblog it, or message eachother in real-time about it and share footage like this a little while later.

Via +Ars Technica, with the quote from this article: http://arstechnica.com/science/2015/04/spacex-releases-deck-camera-footage-of-falcon-9-almost-landing/ 

Edit: +NASA has already begun the journey to Mars. : ) http://www.nasa.gov/topics/journeytomars/index.html#.VTVIcFJVZis.google_plusone_share
It's close—but not quite close enough.

Pop goes the word

Content companies are hot property and Japanese co, Rakuten, has been buying them up: first Overdrive, now Popsugar. 

+楽天市場 will acquire celebrity news and  lifestyle content startup, google.com/+PopSugar, for $580M (there are so many pages but I couldn't plus mention the main one. Aargh!). I've really enjoyed them through G+ and I'm very happy for them. 

Husband and wife team Brian and Lisa Sugar founded PopSugar, in 2006, after a suggestion by blogger Om Malik that Lisa turn her celebrity gossip hobby into a company. Brian became CEO, Lisa Editor in Chief, and they added venture capitalist Michael Moritz to the board. --  +Wikipedia
