Well, I understand Google is shutting down G+ over the next few months. I have still found G+ a useful source of interesting articles but I guess it is time for me to move over to Twitter (https://twitter.com/nfwarmerdam) for that, and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/people/Frank-Warmerdam/870680256) to keep track of friends and family.

The "Trump Mobile" (or "Trump Unity Bridge") drove past Planet on 9th street yesterday with loud music playing. Very strange. Interesting contrast between it and "Out of the Closet" in the background. Perhaps there is some honest positive intent here, but it certainly felt like this guy had driven all the way from Michigan to troll SF. There were lots of other amazed bystanders too.

Interesting improvements in support for GDAL operating against cloud storage. The relationship between this work and cloud optimized geotiff is of particular interest to me. Also, while this doesn't talk much about /vsicurl/ I often still do my cloud data read access via /vsicurl/ with signed urls, but the fundamentals are similar. But the /vsis3/ and similar tools allow broader file management (read, write, copy, directories, etc).

I helped build the backend for the clip and ship API so it is cool to see Sam Roy using it and writing about it. He is certainly our premier api power user.

This is my preferred flight between YYZ<->SFO, and I'll likely be on it in August. Hmm.

A pretty cool video about our Flock3P launch from Bloomberg. I'm not in the video though I was standing behind the cameraman for a bit of it.

These two guys were good samaritan bystanders killed while trying to protect a couple women on public transit in Portland. Holding it together as a civilization depends in part on the willingness of everyday people to put themselves at risk to contain the dangerous. They are heros. It also hit me kind of hard because I was a bystander to a confrontation at a BART station recently that involved a knife and looked like it could escalate. One good fellow stepped in to try and de-escalate things till the police arrived, and I stayed within a few feet in case help was needed. Ultimately one of many confrontations that ends pretty harmlessly, but it is hard to know.

GDAL/OGR 2.2 released! Great work by Even and the whole current team. No contributions from me (except by proxy through Even).
