This whole movie was so epic - watched it last night - Eminems phenomenal track serves it well too. Was motivating to hit the training gym hard this morning.

Yesterday 47 years ago MLK was killed, and RFK delivered what may well be the greatest, most moving impromptu speech ever. I don't really know how he could possibly prepare for such a difficult speech (the audience, mostly black, hadn't heard the news yet) in just 30 minutes. Yet it easily ranks among the very best speeches ever given. Simply amazing.

flying butterflies
 
The German company Festo has produced some amazing flying robots, and their butterflies are the latest example of beautiful motion.  (If you like this you'll love their 2012 bird, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnR8fDW3Ilo.)

Nice article here by bill gates - explores making a better system for preventing epidemics - focus on solutions rather than existing shortcomings.
We need a global warning and response system for infectious disease outbreaks.

Did you know? Our national forests are declining by an average of 10,000,000 acres per year while only 30,500 acres a year are restored.

I used google wallet (had to use google wallet for google IO last year) - (found google wallet annoying at first - but this process was easy - i'd say it was actually easier than paypal)

Will anything supersede twitter as the place to follow people? Interested to see how they prevent bias toward early adopters & how to prevent stagnation. They should make it easier to unfollow people IMO (or remove noise somehow)

hmm eventually everyone you know will have a unique ID and there will just be different apps that help you catagorize people of the world into different groups relevant to you and then different services such as twitter will just act on those groups. The bias comes through search ranking algorithms and suggestion algorithms. although I'm sure there will be plenty of algorithms which don't contain such bias.

I've seen some desks made of cardboard that are quiet sturdy, that might fit the bill :-)

Jonathan gave me some excellent advice and recommendations. We have a complex project - moving a large existing course reviews platform (StudentCourseReview) to a new single page application. Jonathan asked great qualifying questions to see where we were at and what we needed, and then clearly communicated key insights and objectives that made it clear we needed a slightly new approach. Thanks Jonathan - hope to work with you again in the future.
