First Half of 2016 Blows Away Temp Records - Being the hottest half ever recorded

See why (eco+public health+etc reasons) i installed solar panels equivalent to planting 322 treeshttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/FHtw2ri5Dq8 and why i drive an electric car equivalent to planting 382 trees (if the oil car would be refilled weekly) ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/TQboBAji7uo.
If your panels produce more electricity than you use, you get free charging for your car too, like me. :)

Don't tease us, J.K. Rowling!
The author's riddles might reveal some huge clues about her upcoming screenplay and *maybe* Harry Potter.

Writer Creates “Color Thesaurus” To Help You Correctly Name Any Color Imaginable
Ingrid Sundberg, a writer and children’s book illustrator, created a very useful infographic chart for anyone struggling with color names. The writer says that she loves to collect words that can help give her stories variety and depth.

“I’ve learned that we all have different associations with color words. For example the color sapphire is a light blue to me (since that’s the color of the sapphire on my engagement ring), but a sapphire can also be a very dark blue. I doubt there can be an “official color guide,” as color is so subjective.”

“I’m currently working on a visual hair-color thesaurus and a visual emotions/facial expressions thesaurus. They’re really fun to make.”

Except no monitor or viewing device really displays quite the same colors as another monitor or viewing device...

"There are a myriad of ways someone can answer the simple question: How are you? Often this question is sort of asked as part of a basic exchange of pleasantries or as an aside while two aquaintances pass in the hall. Sometimes I even find myself asking the question without even really listening and/or waiting to hear the answer, which is perhaps part of the problem in and of itself..... Ask someone how they are and 95% of the time (I’m not being scientific here, but you get the point) they’ll reply with some variation on the theme of, “I’m good! Busy, but good,” or “Crazy busy! But it’s all good stuff."...Somehow busyness has become a middle class marker of a good life. It means that your time is put to good use, you are in demand and you are by no means underworked. If it’s your boss asking, it makes it clear that you are working hard for the money. Or perhaps it shores up our sense of self and helps us to feel popular and in the know...

But what happens when we are busy, even with good things, and we lose our sense of connectedness to this very core of our being? What happens when we simply become what we do and our whole sense of self-worth is wrapped up in those things rather than the core of who we are? What happens then when there is nothing left to do? Or maybe the very idea of there being nothing left to do is far-fetched enough that it’s not even worth considering. So I commit myself to two things:

No longer asking “How are you?” as a throw away question. When I ask, I want to be have the time and energy to invest in listening to and fleshing out the answer that comes.
No longer answering that question with “busy” as my default answer. I want to stop making busyness a mark of prestige, popularity and/or personhood."

“If we lived close to nature in an agricultural society, the seasons as metaphor and fact would continually frame our lives. But the master metaphor of our era does not come from agriculture - it comes from manufacturing. We do not believe that we 'grow' our lives - we believe that we 'make' them. Just listen to how we use the word in everyday speech: we make time, make friends, make meaning, make money, make a living, make love.” 
― Parker J. Palmer

This is really cool, and also really terrifying, at the same time.
This Kickstarter-funded Pocket Drone is a foldable, flying "multicopter" that its creators dubbed "the GoPro of drones."

Video of the introduction of Eightly by Andy Grignon at LeWeb today

Here is my Age of Context talk. Shel Israel thanks for helping me figure this all out.

The designer (Bill Bull) who did the iPod and QNX did my slides. Beautiful! I will never look so good again!

Thanks Rackspace for sending me around the world to collect all of this future tech.

Seen on me is Estimote Bluetooth Low Energy Beacons. Oakley AirWave ski Goggles. Qualcomm Toq smart watch. Google Glass. And my sweet Scott Jordan ScottEVest leather jacket holding it all.

Sign up for Eightly at http://www.eightly.com/ -- coming in 2014.
