There is an incredible amount of insight here that echoes a lot of things other smart people have been saying (+Jeff Jarvis).  

That said, I think "I have valuable opinions and information, and you should (have) listen(ed) to them" is more accurate, but I'll grant that "Why wasn't I consulted" is a better sound-bite.  [See what I did there? I didn't see it until after I wrote it and re-wrote it.]

This looks interesting, especially since it includes ZigBee and Thread, and decent hardware resources.  Seems to have come completely out of the blue - anybody have any insight / background?  (+Dave Taht ?)

I, for one, welcome our new overlords. https://abc.xyz/
As Sergey and I wrote in the original founders letter 11 years ago, “Google is not a conventional company. We do not intend to become one.” As part of that, we also said that you could expect us to make “smaller bets in areas that might seem very speculative or even strange when compared to our ...

TIL several things, among them:

1. "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" is an enjoyable spy-action-thriller, maybe even great.  I was able to maintain "suspension of disbelief" far more successfully than with many other similar movies.

1a. Being an arrogant DB of an actor apparently makes you well suited to playing a character of similar traits.  Tom did a good job being Ethan. (You don't have to like him as a person to enjoy his characters. :-) )

2. AMC Webster is far and away a better experience than Regal Eastview.  Bigger and sharper screen, better sound, better seats, and cheaper tickets.  Highly recommended.

3. If you log into IMDB on your phone (Google, FB, and Amazon supported, and non-invasively so for Google), you can very quickly mark movies to be saved in your "watch list", while the trailers are running.  +Kara Purcell Walsh​ ​, this may help us not lose track of movies that look interesting, but don't show up on streaming for so long that we've forgotten about them.

Happy 22nd Birthday, Debian!  (Still my favorite Linux distro.)
Yes, that's an actual scanned printout of the Debian announcement. I received such an overwhelming number of responses I had to print them out to avoid filling my 500 kilobyte (!) disk quota on the...

PSA: the Chrome Hangouts App finally works on OS X.  (Not the Hangouts Extension; the App gives you a single tabbed window instead of floating windows for each conversation.)  So much better!

(Note that this must be a new thing, since the screenshots on that page don't reflect the current state.  They still show floating bubbles like Facebook's "ChatHeads"; I'm very glad they changed.)

Microsoft AutoUpdate uses 100% of one CPU core on my MacBook Pro, WHEN PAUSED. Get it together, folks.

Maybe Two Thoughts, but there's enough thought-provocation here to spark hundreds more.

I chuckled: "The current 2015 cruel joke is that to identify a new Silicon Valley start-up opportunity you just have to figure out what your mom no longer does for you now you've moved out of her basement and productize it."

You can call it a "Blog" all you want, but it's not really a blog if you don't have a feed URL (RSS or Atom, I'm not picky).  I'm looking at you http://2ndscale.com/rtomayko/

It takes a village tribe.  Couldn't do my job half as well without the people I work with.  Y'all are awesome; End-of-the-Month deadline met with an hour and a half to spare.

Tonight was the 4th time my wife and I have dined at Bistro 135, and we have been delighted every time. Earlier meals were more intimate (twice for Valentine's Day), this time we came with a larger group for her birthday. Every dish was remarkably good and distinctively unusual without being pompous, and the service was exceptional. (Every recommendation we got from our server Katelyn was perfectly chosen.) Great balance of pleasant music while still allowing easy conversation. My only regret was that there wasn't a truly exceptional, more expensive wine for the occasion; the wine list is very good (and affordable), but not great - it would be nice to have something to reach for when the occasion called for it. Highly recommended.

Great atmosphere, convenient location right on the canal in Fairport. I only wish they'd switch to something other than Finger Lakes Coffee.
