It's on Ep 4 right now, but I'm rather enjoying this 

So far, it feels very much like a TV adaptation of Alex & Ada

In a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a 'Synth' - a highly-developed robotic servant that's so similar to a real human it's transforming the way we live.

And I do enjoy an AI/replicant story in which I can root for the other side

One of the things that has me jazzed about the new VR revolution is that we may have some fairly high quality choices and different approaches. It'll be interesting to watch how it shakes out.
 
Yay! Consumer version of Oculus Rift finally announced. It's called just Rift, and it's coming in Q1 2016!

Surprised they're not trying to hit the Q4 timeline instead for the holidays. But getting it right is more important to us, consumers. 
Since the earliest days of the Oculus Kickstarter, the Rift has been shaped by gamers, backers, developers, and enthusiasts around the world. Today, we’re incredibly excited to announce that the Oculus Rift will be shipping to consumers in Q1 2016, with pre-orders later this year. The Rift delivers on the dream of consumer VR with compelling content, a full ecosystem, and a fully-integrated hardware/software tech stack designed specifically for v...

I'm not going to just come out and say it's aliens, just infer it with a low frequency response.

I don't care if you called Avatar an "anime" because baby benders tore my heart apart.

If you are a business associate: I recommend you put me in a Circle you don't include in your home stream, unless you really want to. My business page is where I post most business and technology related stuff. Just haven't figured out how to use that to do Hangouts and well, Hangouts.

So anyway...
Parent of two, gadget junkie, fan of scifi & fantasy across medias. Gamer of sorts, but by no means expert.

From 2312
the truth is we are here to inscribe ourselves on the universe, and it is not inappropriate to remind ourselves of this when blank slates are given us.

I write with invisible ink.

Figured I'd put in the obligatory What to Expect statement here:
Nothing
I don't operate on a script, and my nature is easily deduced. But a couple of starting points...
  • Not open to conversion, please don't bother
  • Love Android, Google fan
  • Everything is a Remix comes closer to my views on innovation than, say, Apple
  • Socially liberal; I believe the remedy to what ails us is innovation, cooperation and education
  • Sex+ in theory, fairly asexual in practice
  • Social Justice Druid/Ranger adapted for city living
I am generally not a voracious public poster. I'll sometimes post to Circles, but those occur organically. I tend to Circle those I see engaged in conversations which I am in, or watching. I use the search bar up top to look up interests.

I tend to be more of a person that comments than one who broadcasts or initiates.

I've no interest in the numbers, SEO or enhancing my visibility or increasing insert pitch here.

I'm not a cipher, as everyone leaves footprints, no matter how lightly they try to walk.

"I much prefer the sharpest criticism of a single intelligent person to the thoughtless approval of the masses" -- Johannes Kepler

It has been a fairly good school for my sons. Religious bent is an acceptable trade off for focus on academic achievement and better opportunities. Wish the arts and other non athletic extracurricular activities got more attention. An inordinate emphasis on money, both culturally and socially. Rather ostracizing for those coming from a lower socio-economic status.
