Today: Snorkeled with sea lions, iguanas, sea turtles, sharks, comb jellies, puffers, and rays. Now: tired.

I just went to http://www.google.com/history/ . Every search, most websites that I clicked, image results that I looked at, and youtube videos that I watched. Really, really creepy. Like someone was standing over my shoulder for the last few years and writing down everything that they saw*. I would strongly urge every one of you to go there yourself, today, and take a look-- it will be one of the best demonstrations of internet "privacy" that you will ever see. (Now who else has this much data about you?)

*Yes, there's some freaky stuff in my history, too (I had totally forgotten about debugging wxpython code two years ago).

Wow. I deeply regret deleting everything. Now Google has no idea what I'm talking about when I type in vague search terms relating to ones I've used before.

Serge Haroche David J. Wineland have won the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics.  I've been wondering how long that would take!

Also, I'm personally thrilled to see my name in the scientific background paper for the prize announcement.  =)

I've gotten permission to make and sell these. I haven't made any of them yet, I'm waiting on supplies to arrive. The first one is already spoken for but I'm sure I'll be making more, especially if I see interest in it :)

ROBOT PARTY TOMORROW!
robotpartyrobotpartyrobotpartyrobotpartyrobotpartyrobotparty w00t w00t

Tomorrow (Thursday) is the Robot Party! This Robot Party is VERY SPECIAL because it is taking place at +Evil Mad Science !

They have tons of robots here, the biggest one is the shopbot. We might put the webcam on the shopbot and have it move around! +Lenore Edman & +Windell Oskay will also be around so you can ask them LOTS of questions!

:::

What is the Robot Party?
The Robot Party is a weekly Google+ hangout that brings together robot builders from all over to share their robots, knowledge, and ask questions! It is for all age ranges, young or old, just bring your robot!

To watch the Robot Party, go to the Robot Party page here:
http://robotgrrl.com/robotparty

To join the Robot Party with your robot, watch our Google+ page right here for the hangout! (Usually 5-10mins before showtime)

To see old photos of the Robot Party, check out the flickr collection here:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/robotgrrl/collections/72157629489421269/

:::

Looking forward to hanging out with everyone again! We’ve heard from +Sean Lewis +Eaglesnest Robotics recently and they have been building up their +Christopher Robinson Tiny Tanks, so it will be really cool to see them!

Also since this is on the tail end of RoboGames and the Homebrew Robotics Group meeting, we may have new people!

The bandwidth for this Robot Party seems like it will be okay, the upload speed is 0.27Mbps. We’ll see how it goes

SEE YOU AT THE ROBOT PARTY! Tell all your friends!
