Google Plus still does not support uploading of SVG images. How old fashioned can it be? https://ello.co/ddailey/post/dXvrPgZqylWNKip4Cppsiw

Marvin Minsky 1927-2016 An obituary (of sorts) https://ello.co/ddailey/post/w7RBsxG2lGKJQNSYhEDU9A
Alaskan Anecdote number 12. Walking on the frozen ocean with Marvin Minsky and his wife Gloria. An obituary of sorts. Photo from Boston Globe. Those of you who have consented to endure my Alaska anecdotes, probably didn't imagine that among those anecdotes would be an obituary. Neither did I. Nor did Marvin Minksy, I am sure; though, in his wisdom and humor, I think he would have found it both predictable and fitting. Neither of us, I would s...

http://floodwatch.o-c-r.org/ Floodwatch: "a collective ad monitoring tool for social good"
WHY. We spend hours a day online, and we see ads on every webpage we visit. But we don't have any way of tracking the ads we're being served — we don't even know how many ads the average person sees in a given day. The ad industry currently has the power to gather whatever information they want ...

cool and warm at the same time!
 
Project Sunroof shows how much sun your roof is getting. It's a very different view from what I'd seen before. Glad I was able to contribute to this launch.

fascinating.
 
Get ready for the most cheating in a U.S. federal election in modern times.  This will happen for two reasons. First: "legal cheating" such as gerrymandering and voter suppression laws have reached their effectiveness limits and they can no longer compensate for  increasing demographic disadvantages facing the Republican Party, as well as the hemorrhage of intelligent conservatives (e.g. scientists, law professionals and military officers) who can no longer rationalize any continued relationship with the GOP’s plummet into lunacy. The second reason for panic is simpler – if a Democrat enters office in 2016, the courts will eventually rule that corporations are not “people.” They will rule that it is okay to limit the buying of elections. The courts will also (winds are blowing) finally end the travesty of gerrymandering.
 
Fortunately for Rupert Murdoch, the Kochs and their Saudi partners, there is an ace up their sleeve. Through shells, they own every company that makes voting machines in the U.S. Machines that have proved to be easily hackable.  In blue states, this does not much matter, since most of them require that voters be provided with a paper receipt that then goes into a box, the old-fashioned way. Back-door owners do not dare attempt major exploits, wherever random precinct audits could nail them.  But red state voters seem blithely trusting of electronics – so long as it’s mostly white males pulling the levers.
 
Now comes a smoking gun. Without paper audit trails, the cheaters in pyrotechnically-corrupt Kansas thought they were safe, till mathematicians arrived!  “Analyzing election returns at a precinct level, Wichita State mathematician Beth Clarkson found that candidate support was correlated, to a statistically significant degree, with the size of the precinct. In Republican primaries, the bias has been toward the establishment candidates over tea partiers. In general elections, it has favored Republican candidates over Democrats, even when the demographics of the precincts in question suggested that the opposite should have been true.” http://americablog.com/2015/08/mathematician-actual-voter-fraud-kansas-republicans.html
 
Hence, shouldn’t Tea Partiers be just as angry at the Murdoch Machine as democrats are?  Shouldn’t they make common cause over just this one issue?  “According to their analysis, Mitt Romney could have received over a million extra votes in the 2012 Republican primary, mostly coming at the expense of Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. President Obama also ceded significant votes to John McCain due to this irregularity, as well.” 

Could this underlie some of the support for Donald Trump – the only GOP candidate with the guts to tell off Murdoch and his machine? Read this article and see how Clarkson has been blocked at every level with a consistency that shows complete, Orwell-level contempt for even figleaf accountability.
Statistical analysis shows what could be widespread voter fraud favoring Republican establishment candidates. Kansas is blocking attempts to confirm it.
