Some things I loved about this -

The relaxed swing of your banjo playing.
The environmental sound. Crickets?
Nice filming. Good angle and light.

Painfully hilarious. I had to turn it off.

I was in the middle of refactoring a system, and realized how important a part of life factoring is. Or how important a part of thinking it is. So I flashed back on how tiny and irrelevant it seemed in the day in math class when factoring was introduced.

How is it that factoring is taught? It's about finding the least common denominator. Simplifying fractions is the purpose, like trimming 2/4 down to 1/2, so you can compare it easily to a number like 3/2.

And how many times in my life have I used it for simplifying fractions in a literal sense? A few hundred times at the most.

But factoring for the sake of problems outside of arithmetic, that's another story.

This is exactly what Neil deGrasse Tyson was on about when said studying mathemetics was good for kids because it helped them lay down the neural pathways for rational critical thinking/problem solving -- even if "you weren't going to use math the rest of your life".

Found a great use of Circles in G+:

Was about to unfriend an overposter, so that his posts don't drown out people who are interesting but less verbose. Then I realized I could create a dedicated "overposters" circle for all these folks.

Now I can add Scoble back.
