Nice to see my colleague +Travis Deyle getting some press -- he was doing cool stuff at X (which of course I can't talk about) and now he's off doing a startup. 

Do you like tube amps? My colleague Raj Apte does, and pointed me to this little beauty. Too bad the list price is $85k. http://www.alumrocktech.com/amplifier.shtml

Just for fun. This is me doing a 405 lbs straight bar dead lift with no straps or weight belt for assist. I go for two reps, do one solid and have a grip problem and abort the second. A new personal best.

I'm attending the MIT Media Lab 30th Anniversary event. It has been great to see old friends and make new ones. The lab is heading in a good direction. #medialab30

This should be pretty interesting.  Check it out.
"On You: A Story of Wearable Computing" is opening at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA this week
(http://www.computerhistory.org/visit/)

Clint Zeagler and I are setting it up today.  The exhibit shows why devices like Glass, Fitbit, LG Tone Pro, and Vuzix M100 were not possible until recently due to challenges in power, networking, mobile input, and display.  We have approximately 50 head-mounted displays as part of the exhibit.

Here is a preview:

Google’s attempts to fight the surveillance gag order angered the government, with the Justice Department stating that the company’s “resistance to providing the records” had “frustrated the government’s ability to efficiently conduct a lawful criminal investigation.”
