Interesting data point - the deep oceans are buffering heat generated by greenhouse effects (95+% of it) - possibly to be released on later generations. It hardly seems possible, but the article appears to suggest that some artificial mechanism for converting that energy to useful work would be preferable to the alternative - hot surface temps and storms.

I've been switching from sitting to standing when typing every 30 min (or when I feel tired) for years. I feel like its a great way to manage back pain and maintain something of a healthy posture. Probably less productive than sitting, but I'm trying to play the long game.

Just found this New Yorker cartoon and it hits on something. I do "feel" more productive standing, but I know I knock out more stuff when I'm sitting. They lend themselves to different tasks for me. Something that I am sure is an individual thing. I might reboot pomodoro technique for December to see if I can find patterns.

'Forced arbitration rigs the game in favor of big corporations and against consumers and employees. And recently, a New York Times investigation has exposed just how prevalent this damaging practice is; indeed, the story almost certainly affects you, personally.' Al Franken, Reader Supported News

This TPP thing is a disaster. It's so bad that even the governments that are ratifying it will almost certainly suffer enough from it that they will gut it over time. But that might take years.

If you want to take a chance on internet activists to prevent a whole lot of unnecessary suffering, this is not a bad place to put five bucks (or five BTC). I found I had a lot of little bitcoin wallets laying about and consolidated them into a donation. Check your wallets.

This is nice to see in a whole bunch of ways. Might stop by and see if they need any help.
This group of geriatric engineers probably can’t stop global warming—but maybe they can cool down a few hot spots

CERT compromised. But we knew that.

I'm not sure how much material this measures. I assume a piece the size of the aperature. It might detect heavy metals, if you get lucky or take a whole lot of samples. That would be useful.

Pocket spectrometer lets you measure the molecular makeup of nearly anything http://inhabitat.com/worlds-first-pocket-molecular-sensor-measures-the-chemical-makeup-of-everything/
The SCiO is the world's first spectrometer that fits in a pocket, and it can measure the molecular fingerprint of just about anything you see.

People, we need to get people together to talk about this, immediately.  I've met this guy.  He's awesome.  He helped free a country in the arab spring.  He's just done nothing but good.  Very valuable human.  I'm sure the Syrian government has a price in one form or another for his release.  Just keep resharing this until we get the right people on the case, please.
 
Bassel Khartabil, a leading figure in the Syrian Open Source software community, has been imprisoned by the Syrian government since March 2015, accused of "harming state security". The UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has declared his imprisonment arbitrary and called for his immediate ...

Introduction
I am fond of those photons reflected from cute things.  Sadly, few of my non-animal friends supply these.

I can fix or destroy most things in about an hour, although I often avoid this.

Dana Street is a Community Center that happens to be a coffee shop. The *people* in the local Mountain View community are the only reason to go there. I have been going here for 20 years. Nine out of ten times I go, I have an interesting, intelligent conversation with someone. This is how you visit Dana Street: 1) Have nothing to do 2) Order whatever, it doesn't matter, it's all average fare. That's not what you are there for. Joke with staff, they are usually responsive to that. 3) Sit with other people, hopefully at the big table or outside at a table, so you can chat. 4) Strike up a conversation, get to know them. They are interesting. 5) If there are musicians playing, enjoy them. If you are a musician, bring an instrument and play around with it outside, someone will probably join you. Rinse. Repeat.
