The Canadian winter lost the plot for a moment, so the Tiger and I pounced!

I got into it through the TV show, but the books quickly take precedent. I identify with Quentin more than the review, but his evolution is what got to me. He starts off so unfinished and finishes so completely, he's hard not to admire. Grossman is a fine, self-aware story teller.

Two days of chasing Virginia spring waterfalls down winding mountain roads on two wheels? That'd cure the winter blues.

"“We noticed early on that when people from the tech community help, they’re very interested in metrics,” Kyriell Noon, senior director of programs, tells me. “They want to see the data, and they want to know the ROI for their giving.”

“They’re obsessed with impact!” Glide’s James Lin joked.

On its surface, impact would seem a reasonable obsession if you’re sinking time and money into helping people in need. But here’s the thing: When you’re working with layers upon layers of brokenness—when you’re confronting the worst of what our economy can do to people in 2016—the ROI can be minimal."

Not just in helping with social issues. This kind of thinking infects #edtech too. Data and change driven, willfully ignorant of complex, non-linear problems - and then left wondering why an ipad for every kid didn't work the way they thought it would. That kind of thinking drives #tech and infects its educational outreach.

Good piece of writing there +WIRED...

Cabin fever is peaking as the ice accretes outside. Dreams of going as far south as you can easily go ensue...

In the depths of winter, a #motorcycle  diary: #winter   #maintenance  on my +Triumph Motorcycles Tiger - +BMW Motorrad  #restoration  at DK Custom Welding & Design in Salem, and an insightful +MotoGP +Öhlins Racing AB video on how #motorbike  suspension works - all wrapped up in some #MotoGP   #Sepang  pre-season escapism.

In the strange mediascape of 2017 it has all gone sideways

I'm really starting to miss credible journalism. I know we live in the brave new world of amateur everything (news, politicians, presidents), but social media driven news is like throwing gas on a fire.

What's a long Canadian winter without watching the #Dakar  and thinking of inaccessible bucket list #motorcycle  items to check off?

Think +Zero Motorcycles will have a Dakar capable electric bike by 2019?
