I had a great time chatting with musician and sound engineer +Andre Louis (@FreakyFwoof on Twitter) who created all the sounds for the app BlindSquareApp: http://blindsquare.com/
 
Conversations with Siri: Special Guest Andre Louis
We chatted with musician, technologist, and Periscope addict from London, Andre Louis, otherwise known as @FreakyFwoof. How does someone who is blind use Periscope, and how does Siri and similar assistive technology help those with a vision impairment to live an active life online and offline.

All music used in the show was created by Andre Louis. www.andrelouis.com

The Earth Pyramid Incubation Centre opens next month at the Matrix Global Schools in Malaysia.  This is where the +Earth Pyramid will be constructed. World renown construction engineering firm +Arup is heavily involved in the design, planning, project management and construction of the pyramid. 
 
Putting the Earth in Box - the Earth Pyramid Time Capsule
Here's an example of the carved stone block that will contain the time capsule. Note the fine detail of the countries depicted on the globe.

This smaller demonstration model of the Time Capsule box will go to Malaysia for the opening of the Earth Pyramid Incubation Centre on July 26-28.

Apple HomeKit Posts a List of Siri Commands, What You can and What You Can't
HomeKit, Apple’s initiative to controlling home automation that was introduced last year at the Worldwide Developers Conference, has been in the market for nearly twelve months now. Just recently Apple updated an entire list of commands that you can give Siri for taking care of Apple HomeKit enabled devices.

I've attached a couple of examples that I tried out on my iPad after reading the article.   Here are a few more that you can ask:

“Turn on the lights” or “Turn off the lights.”
“Dim the lights” or “Set the brightness to 50%.”
“Set the temperature to 68 degrees.”
“Turn on the coffee maker.”

Bragging rights
The first computer I ever wrote a program on had no keyboard, no mouse, and no screen. The input was via a card reader, the output was a dot matrix printer and his name was 'Fred'.
