Happy to see this being discussed publicly!
'BeyondCorp' plan prefers analysis of user behaviour and device state instead

I've been unimpressed at the last two meetings I've attended by some of the skype participation.  On the other hand, I was able to fully participate by skype myself with a Royal Society consultation, because there was adequate technological and organisational support such that I was able to fully participate in all discussions, even coffee.  So I'm trying to come up with guidelines that strike a reasonable balance.

So nothing divine or happy belongs to humans apart from just that one thing worth taking seriously, as much insight and intelligence as is in us, for, of what’s ours, this alone seems to be immortal, and this alone divine. And by being able to share in such a capacity, our way of life, although by nature miserable and difficult, is yet so gracefully managed that, in comparison with the other animals, a human seems to be a god.

Even this would be a huge improvement:

* Boston

* NYC

* Philly
|
* Baltimore
|
* D.C.

(sorry Acela, 3h45 Boston->NYC isn't "high speed")

Pharmacists are great; they caught a billing error & passed through 4 pairs of hands in < 5 minutes. Way, way better than the CVS in Plainsboro, my doctor in Plainsboro told me that and it was true.

Nice coffee shop. Music was a little annoying: exactly what you heard on the radio in the midwest in about 1984. But mellow and good vegan choices.

These guys are great. TBH I only ever get the veggie pizza, but it's awesome. We ate once at the restaurant; that is not fancy, prefer getting them delivered :-)

This place is a post office. It has all the things you need, stamps, boxes, tape, cards etc. for purchase. It's clean. I was there before Christmas, it had two people working hard & professionally, who were familiar and friendly to the regulars, professional and friendly to everyone else despite an insane line of people who came at the last minute when they were meant to close (fortunately we'd come 20 minutes *before* the close.) I think reading the low reviews here tells you exactly how hard it is to work a job like this. I have a lot of respect for government workers.

Beautiful wide open yet cosy space built in 1910. Certainly the best-smelling pub I've ever walked into. The Thai food is fantastic & very authentic (at least as I was tutored by a Thai friend; I've never been to Thailand myself). The only sad thing is that it's a Fuller house, and the Fuller beers are no better even that close to their brewery.
