Computer-controlled transportation seems a much better bet than relying on distractible humans. This forecasting scenario makes me feel optimistic for the future.

I built my first website around 1997. Reading this piece got me reflecting on what has changed in 18 years. Still loving it!
MY WEBSITE is 20 years old today. I'm dictating these remarks into a tiny handheld device, not to prove a point, but because, with gorgeously ironic timing, my wired internet connection has gone ou...

If you ever feel like life isn't worth living, would a video of Mr. Rogers breakdancing make you change your mind?

Too good not to share. I started with Photoshop 2 and 3 in 1997, with the advent of layers. Can't say I'm a fan of the cloud model pricing, however.

There’s no doubt that 2014 was a tough year. But Bill Gates looks back at some of the bright spots—including saving more children’s lives, making a breakthrough on TB, and hitting a big milestone in the fight against AIDS.

Michelle Obama, killing it with her Tuskegee University commencement address. Moving, meaningful, appropriate. So much admiration!

What foods are water-intensive? Surprisingly, lentils take more than eggs. Gardening in the desert, I look for plants that can grow with less, like onions, tomatoes, and okra.
With California's drought worsening, there has been a growing focus on the ; amount of water needed to produce certain foods.

Damnit, who's cutting onions in here. Oliver Sacks, one of my favorite authors.
