My birthday cake from last week. A film strip for filmmaking, a video game controller for video game making, and fire and tire flip and weight for the Spartan and Tough Mudder races. My wife is the best.

Remember this old joke about the physicist, the engineer, and the programmer in a car that breaks down, and the programmer finally suggests they turn it off and on again and see if that fixes it? Well, turns out the Tesla can get into a state where the touchscreen doesn't work right anymore, and the official solution is to reboot the car with a special combination of buttons that you need to press. Congratulations, the future is here!

In a way, I'm glad Muhammad Ali died quickly. Nothing less dignified than a celebrity in hospital while the vultures are circling outside, trying to cover a new angle.

Remember how Michael Schumacher spent months in hospital after his skiing accident? Not a day went by without another vapid news article reporting that his condition hasn't changed, attempted interviews with suffering relatives that were intercepted on their way to the hospital, and tangential hard-hitting journalism on the safety of skiing and the science behind helmets.

At least this way, we remember him as he was during his heyday, without the deteriorating health and impending death drawn out in excruciating detail by the media. RIP to another legend.

There was a special Black Student Graduation ceremony at Yale for the considerable number of black graduates, which was a great event and had a fantastic opening that I'll post a video of later.

This prompts me to say a few words about the recent Calhoun controversy. Consider a university with a sizable number of Jewish students that happens to have one college called Hitler, which upsets them quite a bit. "But wait", you say, "it held this name for a long, long time, there is deep tradition in this college, and you could say that Hitler was a statesman who brought great infrastructural improvements like the Autobahn, put a great focus on technological advances like jet propulsion and nuclear energy, and brought the economy back after a terrible slump." WELL YES, BUT HE WAS STILL FUCKING HITLER.

Partially self-driving cars are the future. Driving is fun, but long commutes and bad traffic aren't. I drove to work today and tried autopilot, didn't touch the steering wheel or a pedal for almost the entire freeway portion, and it's a different experience. I'm looking forward to when self-driving cars are advanced and ubiquitous enough that you can completely do your own thing while on the road. Combines the productivity of a bus ride with the flexibility of having your own car.

I am. Working on the bus is still better than a self-driving car. But I have to leave work early today.

Facebook's natural search sucks. It's hard to put into words just how bad it is. It can't even handle the most primitive queries. Hell, "Rob's posts" and "Posts by Rob" give you different results (hint: only one of them does what you think it does). I get that Facebook is trying to be smart, but that backfired terribly. What's wrong with a traditional search where you have a bunch of fields to fill in? Like... Find [POSTS] by [NAME/GROUP] on [[NAME]'s wall] about [TOPIC] between [START DATE] and [END DATE]? That would have been infinitely more efficient and intuitive.

The Ticketmaster settlement is comedy gold. You get a $2.25 discount on a ticket (you cannot combine multiple discounts), or possibly a ticket for one of certain events of Ticketmaster's choosing. Somewhere in the offices of Ticketmaster, a few execs are having a great laugh. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/22/business/media/ticketmaster-lawsuit-vouchers.html

The events of their choosing are certainly not bargain bin, but nothing in LA or San Diego at the moment.

I love the spectacle of E3. I don't really care much about the actual content, I just love the lights and noise and the occasional little demo, and most importantly seeing people I don't get to see much anymore.

Story
Introduction
If you add me to your circles, you can expect public posts with the following content:

Photography - My pictures pale in comparison to those of real photographers, but you might like a couple of the shots I post.

Video Games - I just make them, barely play them anymore these days, but I'll post random things about either playing or making games. Note that I will not post about my current employer other than forwarding press releases.

Filmmaking - There'll be an occasional post about that.

Android - I might post things about Android. For information about my apps, add +EboAndroidApps to your circles.

Check out some of my favorite contributions: My photography album and typical post #1, #2, #3.

NOTE: All opinion expressed are solely my own and not those of my employer.

Nice and cozy. Charming interior design. Rooms are a bit dark because of the small windows, the bathroom door would barely close because it's so warped, and other minor issues. Comfortable place overall though.
