Yeah G+ has a ways to go to be better. Regardless I think the Turing test is a pretty shoddy way to test AI. It's too subjective anyway. Let's face it, we have a difficult time proving our co workers and people who post youtube comments are actually alive and aware, I'm not sure how we're supposed to do that with a machine.

A good article on how businesses might become the thing that controls gun carrying down in the US. Also highlights how two-faced politicians are on the subject.

After the tragic events in Isla Vista, California, last week, we’ve seen another uptick in talk of stricter gun regulation and the regular depressing response. But while the debate over solving the problems of gun violence legislatively or judicially falters along its predictable path, with feints toward meaningful reform followed...

There are a lot of lessons one might take away from the D-Day landings 70 years ago today. In a time when ugly nationalism is once again on the rise, the one I'd like to bring home is that the defeat of Fascism was a team effort. We know well the roles of British and American soldiers, sailors, and airmen. In recent years the Canadians have finally been getting their due for Juno Beach. It goes beyond that though. There were Dutch, Belgian, Polish, and Norwegian sailors in the Channel; Czech, Polish and Norwegian pilots flying support missions; and French commandos and partisans on the ground. Two months later, when the German army was on the run, it was tankers of the Polish 1st Armoured Division who closed the Falaise Gap. And of course none of this would have been possible if the Soviets had not torn the guts out of German armed forces in three years of savage fighting on the Eastern Front. We would do well this day not to honor just the dead of our own nation, but all those who died to end fascism.

This is my class for the accounting degree I'm taking. It's a really great group. I live in a small city on the east coast of Canada. Half the students in this class are from outside Canada and there are more women than men. Not what I was expecting when I signed up (in a good way).

The demographic for every other class in the college is more like the rest of the province, so this one's very different. The experiences and points of view have been really interesting, especially given the number of presentations about ourselves we have had to do in the current term. We have people from Iran, Ethiopia, Nepal, China, Serbia, Bulgaria, the Phillipines, and New Zealand in addition to the people who were born in Canada.

The class is made up of friendly, intelligent, supportive people who work together well. It's a novel experience for me, and it has been pretty awesome. :)
