So, here's a thought. Ignorance is not a defense against illegal action. 

How about he be tried and punished in accordance with the laws on the nation he committed his crimes in. Typical poaching punishment is what? 2-5 years in prison? Go for it. 2-5 years of prison in Africa seems like a good idea.

If this was a first time hunt for him, maybe some leniency for ignorance. But he is far from that, having dozens of big game kills under his belt. He knew what he was doing and most likely was aware of the issues surrounding big game hunting. Saying he thought he was on a legal hunt is just saying, "Not my fault, not my problem". 

What's worse was that it wasn't a clean kill, so that lion suffered with an arrow wound for at least a day. Sickening. 

This person is a dentist. I personally would not ever feel comfortable knowing that the person working on my teeth derives happiness from the stalking and ultimately killing of big game with an arrow. 

Perhaps a poetic justice for this person would be that he finds himself weaponless and facing the predators he has killed on the open tundra.

So the other sad fallout of Cecil being killed is that all of his cubs will be killed by the next alpha male lion to take over his pride.

This is pretty awesome. Good music to go along with the various methods of cellular death. I think that Donald Trump is going a long ways to helping the individuals of the GOP find their own unique voice. This is a really cool video. :)

Wow. 28 is way too young to die. 
The tech startup world has been shaken today by news that 28-year-old Josh Greenberg, co-founder of recently defunct music sharing service Grooveshark, was found dead on Sunday in the Florida apartment he shared with his girlfriend.

It seems with DigiSpark, the main pain point for Apple folks is that the usb contacts disagree on length. An extension cord resolves the problem of a DigiSpark that powers on, but doesn't answer the call of the programmer.

Hmm... I think ultimately, having an array of printers would be ideal. Ie, a couple that are large'ish printers and several small printers to handle faster bulk printing of relatively small parts...

Into week 3 of my healthy salad eating thing. Nice to see the weight drop. But an interesting side effect is that eating restraunt/prepared food that is too fatty or too sweet is very unappetizing and actually borderline unpalatable.

A casualty of this process is the beloved marbled rib eye steak. I still love the taste, but the heavy marbling means a much higher fat content that on the tongue just feels unnatural now. :(  I suppose that's a good thing, the body loves to adjust to things and it's adjusting in a more healthy direction.

My salad:  Lettuce(romain/iceberg/butter) + cherry tomatoes + sliced mushrooms, and cucumbers. No dressing or vinagarettes. Occasionally, maybe a small 4-6oz serving of meat on top(chicken/beef/etc).

Story

Tech-loving, slightly off kilter, random-factoid-regurgitating, kind of guy.
Introduction
I'm just your typical tech-loving, slightly off kilter, random factoid regurgitating, camera loving, weird tech thing building, loving husband, overly cautious father, kind of guy. 

I spent half of my life growing up in Southern California and have spent the other half of my life in the Bay Area. My love of technology(and a good paying job) brought me to the Silicon Valley, but it was love and starting a family(and a good paying job), which has kept me here. ;)

I greatly enjoy photography and just shooting the breeze. Though lately, I've taken up 3d printing, micro controller project building, coding, and even got my ham radio license, though I've yet to engage in rag-chewing on my little 5W handie-talkie unit.

You'll find my various profiles all over the inter-webs. But this is where I spend the bulk of my time, on Google+ or in the Google Forums(The #deltabot forums mostly!).

I currently work for a technology platform centric company based out of San Francisco, but am fortunate enough to work out of the Palo Alto office, where I work with a very energetic and amazing group of engineers.
Bragging rights
Married to an amazingly straightforward, understanding, insightful, patient, and loving woman who somehow finds it within her to put up with me and the cloud of messiness/noise/random ramblings I bring with me. Proud father of an exceedingly energetic, unendingly inquisitive, and a paragon of positivity daughter. Both of whom remind me why life is wonderful.
