We definitely are not alone in the universe.

Took a drive to see the windmills yesterday. These were constructed a couple of years ago about 30 miles east of Colorado Springs, south of Calhan. Each blade is 92 feet long, and they were turning at 4.1 seconds per revolution in the strong breeze yesterday. The tips were traveling at 98.5 miles per hour - screaming fast, though it looked very serene. There were easily 500 or so of these in the general area. Over 40 in this picture alone.
Oh, and the cows don't seem to mind.

Very nice. We have more going up on the eastern edge of the county. I think that there are about 25 already up.

Contrary to Etsy CEO Chad Dickerson's thought, this is a TERRIBLE idea.
My wife sells on Etsy and tells me daily of the screwups they have and the pain they caused sellers. Unfortunately, some people rely on this site for their living and Etsy continuously gets things wrong, costing those sellers time, money and reputation.
The CEO is proud of the fact that no testing is done, and every developer and product manager can update their live site. Testing is accomplished by the unwary users who start to complain on forums when things inevitably go awry.
Through continuous build and regression testing, you can achieve the same level of innovation and keep your users happy.

"‘We do something on the engineering team called continuous deployment’, explains Dickerson. ‘That’s a fancy way of saying that we’ve given every software developer, every product manager the ability to change the site at any time. Back in 2009 when we started this approach, not many companies were doing this. Typically, websites do a release every two weeks. We release or do code deploys about 35 times a day [this has since increased to up to 50 times per day]. The really exciting thing is that there’s no central authority that manages the releases.’"
Imagine you work as a developer for Etsy. In case you haven’t heard of Etsy, it is a marketplace where people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods. It has 1.5 million sellers, almost 22 million active buyers, and in 2014 it had gross merchandise sales

You are right! It's hard to believe this is actually a thing, given that most developers write buggy cod to start with.

Flying the Albatross is fun! Once you figure out the light touch needed to control it, you can easily go around the globe in one flight.
Here I take it out on a cross-the-ocean flight, then back again towards the north to search for an anomaly I spotted with my scanning satellite. There is a deep well in the Mountains, but no visible structure.
The controls on the Albatross are touchy; to turn, only use the roll controls. You can maintain level flight by adjusting the engine speed. I didn't know these things taking off, so I lost both landing gear on the outset. Jeb didn't care he just wanted to fly. He did have a rough landing though back at KSP.

It took me about an hour of wall clock time. I tried physics warp, but that interfered with the pitch, yaw and roll too much to be useful.

I feel like +Patrick Stuart and +Jason Sholtis need to see this if they haven't already. Altamura man. Possibly 130,000 years old. Current thought is that this neanderthal dude was wounded, fell upside down in a crack in a cave, and died of starvation. But only the calcite remembers.
