Pirate 3.0? Google & Bing are about to make it harder to search for illegal streaming & download sites. #seo

Both Google & Bing are supposed to work to demote pirate sites in the search results + remove from autocomplete. And they are required to show progress by June 1, 2017.

In the Gaveyard - Bluegrass Jam

As part of my job I stay at the Sheraton Framingham, Massachusetts, for my monthly visits to my company's headquarters. Each February I'm there to catch a bit of the Joe Val Bluegrass Festival that takes over the hotel for a weekend every February.

Nice to have a little magic happen on a routine business trip ;-)

"Perhaps the major limitation of AI can be captured by a single letter: G. While we have AI, we don’t have AGI—artificial general intelligence (sometimes referred to as “strong” or “full” AI). The difference is that AI can excel at a single task or game, but it can’t extrapolate strategies or techniques and apply them to other scenarios or domains—you could probably beat AlphaGo at Tic Tac Toe."

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg​ has published a 6000 word manifesto on Recode​ that outlines his vision for a world brought closer together to solve it's problems through social media.

This is a time when many of us around the world are reflecting on how we can have the most positive impact. I am reminded of my favorite saying about technology: "We always overestimate what we can do in two years, and we underestimate what we can do in ten years." We may not have the power to create the world we want immediately, but we can all start working on the long term today. In times like these, the most important thing we at Facebook can do is develop the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us.


A summary and explanation of the manifesto:
