The books we had when we were kids that made us enamored of tech were unapologetically utopian. Now, we build systems that in some ways go beyond those visions. Yet we accept that economic control and modes of life are in the hands of our betters (recast as turtlenecked geniuses).

Technologists should be unapologetic socialists if they want to remain unapologetic advocates of ever more technology.
We need a future where the robots benefit all of us, not just the rich.

Awesome day in Zillertal. We decided to stay overnight and are enjoying our sweet, sweet pension.

Excellent documentary, but as usual I can't just leave it at that :D.
Last night we watched Particle Fever, a movie about the CERN atom smasher. It was very entertaining and full of suspense…

a little less dramatic but the man wins (while making a lot less racket)

Well, I didn't make it to Bad Tölz, but I hit Dietramszell, just about 25 miles. My feet were just too sore to push the rest of the way. I hitchhiked back home, since the bus from that town only runs on weekdays (?).

Sounds like your getting soft in your old age...at least you can still tell the boys, " when I was a kid...I hiked 25 miles on the weekends for fun.." :)

Okay here is a story I actually did write though :p http://www.mountainwerks.org/cma/2014/riki_kaiser.html
Predigtstuhl Nordkante (IV+). 22. June 2014. Over the years since Riki and Arne moved away from Lehel, Riki and I have kept up climbing practice at the Thalkirchen gym. She learned a lot over that time, and was ready to go climb something outside. But trying to find a full day with good weather ...

My wife went there today because we lost the nuts for a wheel on our kids bike. The guy there said "it's complicated" and "you should go back to the place where you bought that bike" and went outside to talk on his phone and smoke a cigarette. He didn't even have the courtesy to say "no, I won't help you" he just walked away. He is really unfriendly, and we actually went there 3 different times each time giving him another chance but now we just had enough. I'm really sorry to write this, I never wrote a bad review of any place, but this guy is just mean, mean, mean.
