I saw this, and thought of +Andrew Wilson. Somehow, this reminded me of you. ;-)

Hi, +Tom Wilson. So, which reminded you of your Dad: the stealing video games part (which I must admit I haven't), or the reading Chaucer and Boethius part (which I must admit I have)?

The article is hilarious.

Happy Halloween! +Radhika Jagannathan​ and I dressed as Dug and Kevin from Up, on our way to the Disney World Halloween party. "Oh please won't you be my prisoner?"

Today, I learned something new. Among the many famous "Tom Wilson"s out there, one of them was a record producer. Not just any producer - he produced "Like a Rolling Stone", "Sound of Silence", albums for Velvet Underground, Frank Zappa... Dude was a legend!

Wow. That's some name to live up to!

Got my Brass Rat after sending it in to be resized. They obviously remade the ring, which I guess is to be expected for a stainless steel ring. I've missed having it - my hand felt weird without it.

The new version will take some getting used to, though. This ring hasn't looked so shiny in more than a decade!

The +Tribeca Film Festival held a screening last night to honor the 40th anniversary of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I got to watch Holy Grail in a beautiful theater, followed by a Q&A with the 5 surviving Pythons!!

Watching an awesome movie with a ton of fans was a huge blast - but the real highlight was obviously the Q&A. It turns out that John Oliver was the host, which was pretty awesome!

Because this is Monty Python you're talking about, the panel quickly degenerated into "Let's troll John Oliver". John Cleese at one point walked off stage and started doing shadow puppets. The Pythons pulled their chairs into a circle around Oliver, or turned backwards in their seats.

And then, after leaving the stage to thunderous applause, the final slide projected on screen - "Piss Off". How very Pythonesque. :-)

It's finally happening - http://officialandroid.blogspot.com/2016/02/embrace-your-inner-gaming-hero-with.html

This has been such an amazingly complicated launch. The amount of effort it's taken to get here is beyond belief. I'm so excited to finally be able to share this with the world. :-)

Huge congrats to the team - in particular, the amazing +Dan Rodney +Ben Frenkel +Duncan Curtis and +Yuval Peress for all the work here.

Fans of baseball and great quotes alike lost something special today - Yogi Berra died last night. :-( "Nobody goes there anymore - it's too crowded" is one of my personal favorite Yogi-isms, but they're all pretty amazing.

Is "it's like déjà vu all over again" another one or is that someone else's?

I'm glad to see the Supreme Court get something right for once. We need some decent news in this country.

(Note - I haven't actually read the full opinion yet, so I don't have any thoughts on the basis of the decision. I'm just happy the outcome is the right one. I have some reading to do now. :-) )

Justices Roberts/Scalia/Alito/Thomas - welcome to the wrong side of history. This will be a case that future generations will read and marvel at the fact that it was a 5-4 decision.

I'm so glad to see this continuing! +Martijn Stevenson​ and +Christopher DiBiasio​ and I had a blast building the ramp in 2005 - and it's awesome to see it going strong 10 years later. :-)
 
Dropping a donated, no-longer-functioning, and irreparable piano off of Baker House has become an annual MIT tradition, marking the last day students can drop a class. Yesterday's double-piano drop did not disappoint! Watch: http://mitsha.re/1JyYAS7
