Well this is an interesting quandary..
Google’s self-driving cars are designed to exceed the speed limit by up to 10 miles per hour because stubbornly obeying the law can be a danger to everyone on the road. The legal and philosophical consequences of this fact are fascinating.

The article fails to mention this: Solomon curve. It's the reason behind this decision.

To all the people who whine about inequality in the workplace...

#genderequality #tech
Silicon Valley has long suffered the reputation of being unwelcoming to women, from brogrammer attitudes to sexist apps to gender inclusivity, but whatever problems women may have with the tech industry, wage discrimination isn't necessarily one of them. New research shows that there is no statistically significant difference in earnings between male and female engineers...

This song is so catchy. And a Scotsman! How can you go wrong?

We have Comcast. We also have around 15 internet connected devices in our home at a given time. We have 3 small businesses that rely on internet connectivity to function. There is no reason for ISPs to implement data caps because it doesn't cost them any more money to provide bandwidth for 500gb of data than it does 50gb. This is nonsense and is only going to hurt small businesses and consumers.

Looks like Comcast is quietly pushing a 300 GB cap and overage charges

Summary: Comcast is expanding its usage-based broadband trials. Given the larger roll out, it looks like a 300 GB cap plus a $10 overage fee that gets you 50 more GB is the winner.

I got a notice once that I alone racked up to just shy of that amount.  I was backing up my music library to http://music.google.com and uploading a lot of videos that month. We were at 240g

"I’m utterly preoccupied with the laws of colour. If only we’d been taught them in our youth!" - Vincent van Gogh, about 4 November 1885

Van Gogh created several studies of autumn leaves in that period of which this is one of them. This painting is now in the collection of Museum +Boijmans van Beuningen

I was thinking about this all day today.

Well said.
What stops you from creating right now? How do you start creating again? It's not as tough as you think it is.

I've been addicted to this game for about 6 months now, and a lot of his ideas are quite novel.

I think if anyone were to do something like this, it would be Google. As evidenced by the fact that Niantic Labs is hoised by Google and uses their servers.

#ingress #google #localbusinesses
I recently got a new Android phone and found a little card in the box advertising Ingress, the “massively multi-player location-based alternate reality game from Niantic Labs at Google.” Ingress had slipped past my notice despite Greg Sterling’s mention of it nearly a year ago. Yet, here it was, already preloaded as an app in […]

I love this. It makes me feel like less if a failure as a photographer.
 
All Egor from +ULTRAsomething photography asks is that 8% of his shots be successful and shares why this is the perfect solution for photographers: http://bit.ly/16YDbkH

As fall began to give way to winter at Endeavour Crater, Opportunity cruised deeper into her campsite on the western side of Solander Point in October, heading for a site that may contain clay minerals and the rover's next big discovery, and the Mars Exploration Rovers mission trekked another month closer to its 10th anniversary in January 2014.

Not only do they have some of the best pizza in town, but they're open late so it's an easy stop on the walk home from the bar.
