Trying to buy a Nexus 4, but shopping cart is buggy. All I get is: "Oops, we had a problem with your request. Please try again." Wow.

Does anyone have experience with datakind.org? Seems like an interesting way to learn data science skills while doing something useful.

Whether or not marijuana is legal has little bearing on my life, but I do want to see an end to the pointless and destructive war on drugs.

AOL up 45% today -- another reminder that it's hard to pick stocks.

Maria Klawe is awesome -- it's hard to make headway on messy issues like gender inequality in CS, but she does it with aplomb (and w/o resorting to divisive identity politics). I had dinner with her once when she was a dean at UBC and it was clear she was going places.

I love the anecdote that she recently learned how to skateboard. Also the "second-body problem" inversion with her husband Nick [who taught me how Turing machines work back in 1999].

Yup. I'm in the same boat, but it's just not going to happen before Christmas :(

From Scott Adams:

If you want an average successful life, it doesn’t take much planning. Just stay out of trouble, go to school, and apply for jobs you might like. But if you want something extraordinary, you have two paths:

1. Become the best at one specific thing.
2. Become very good (top 25%) at two or more things.

Canada deprecates the penny!

Would be nice for this to happen in the US, but of course the penny is a symbol of freedom and protected by the constitution, so that'll never happen.
