The Witness currently has to contend with sleep for my time if I'm going to play it at all, because all other moments are occupied by a newborn and toddler. This essay does a good job of explaining why it wins out.

In one sense, seven years of work seems like a lot of time to spend on developing a game. In another, I don’t see most teams being able to deliver a game this whole, for lack of a better word, in any time frame.

If you had told me a couple of years ago that anyone was making a puzzle game about epistemology and epiphany, I’d have laughed you out of the room. That the game ever got made feels like a small miracle. How well it succeeds at doing what it’s trying to do is another.

Now I just need to figure out where I can actually obtain Cardboard.  It's probably obvious, but a cursory google proved remarkably unhelpful.

Starting to question the efficacy of daycare. Every week, Riya is sick by Thursday, and stays sick until the subsequent Tuesday, so we're effectively getting care for 3 days a week. :-/

It may hurt now and it's certainty hard to endure, but she's building up her immune system. Repeated exposure to low-risk pathogens is great for her long-term health.

The feral chickens of Kauai provide a unique opportunity to study what happens when domesticated animals escape and evolve.

It is a wonderful thing that I'm about the same age as my favorite musician. Other artists come and go from my listening as the themes of their music sync up with my life for a time, but the major beats of his life mostly match up with mine. So every album seems to hit deeper than the last.

In the next version of Natural Selection 2 the "play now" button at the top of the menu uses a ranking function I designed. Here's a post about how it works.
The next version of Natural Selection 2 contains an algorithm I designed for ranking servers. It powers the "play now" button at the top of the menu. The goal is to come up with a smooth expression...

"All you need to know about the quality of pasture in the pampas is that cows went feral in Argentina. You can still see them grazing pretty much anywhere there is a horizontal patch of grass, all now firmly back in the hand of man, but still with a happy grassy glint in their eye. This most docile, placid, and passive of large herbivores stepped off the boat, took one nibble at the pampas and made a run for it. It knew that it wanted to spend the rest of its life eating the pampas grass, without outside interference. And the settlers, once they caught some of the early escapees, began to feel the same way about the beef."
04.13.2006 · Argentina On Two Steaks A Day. The classic beginner's mistake in Argentina is to neglect the first steak of the day. You will be tempted to just peck at it or even skip it altogether, rationalizing that you need to save yourself for the much larger steak later that night.

My team at Google has been very big proponents and innovators of USB Type-C. I've worked on two Pixel products now that use the connector and its related technologies (Power Delivery, Alternate Mode, USB 3.1). It really is an amazing little connector.

However, now that there are more and more Type C products rolling out from Nexus, One+, Nokia, and more, this I have found painfully true : USB Type-C will only be as good as its ecosystem, and more specifically, the worst of its ecosystem.

I have started reviewing USB cables on Amazon because I have gotten fed up with the early cables from 3rd party vendors that so blatantly flaunt the specification and I want to hold them to task.

You may not just get weird behavior from your devices with these bad cables... What some these vendors are doing is downright dangerous.

I've been contemplating setting up a blog where I document bad cables and perhaps give some insights into USB Type C as well.

Great food. Good prices. Lots of vegetarian options.

Might be the worst food I've had. The beef had so much msg that my tongue was numb afterwards. My wife ordered a vegetable torta and something was off about the oil, such that it made her want to throw up. She ordered a grilled cheese as a replacement (how can you screw up grilled cheese?) and even that was bad. I don't normally write negative reviews, but I'm still feeling stomach pangs and don't feel like moving, so the best use of this time is warning others about this place. BEWARE.
