Robot reconfigurable environment under a glass canopy- it sounds like a dream.
http://www.theverge.com/2015/2/27/8121229/google-new-glass-mountain-view-campus

The one modern pragmatism that's only crept into my brain as I've drifted past adolescence and youth, sound. Buildings grant us isolation. So a reconfigurable environment needs to be both reconfigurable, but also impressively rugged, able to guard against the vibrations of everyday existence.

Otherwise I'd be more seriously planning all those hanging #unmaterial tree-bunkers younger me dreamt of.
Earlier this week, The New York Times reported that Google was set to submit a proposal for a new campus in Mountain View next week — and now we're getting our first look at that proposal, thanks...

Dear +Linus Torvalds, can we get a coordinated Linux 5.0 / GCC 5.0 release? For no particular reason? Sure, 4.x (likely consisting of 4.0 alone) could have lasted longer and some people might wonder. But what a chance we have now to make a funny moment that few would or could expect.

Almost 9 months since AMD announced 4x/8x A57/ARMv8 running Opteron A1100. When it gets here we'll probably all be excited, but I have trouble imaging any of these first try 64-bit ARMs are ever going to be taken as seriously competitive with x86. I guess I don't really know- the Nvidia X1 leaks blew away the other ARM cores, 4x wins, &c, and it is like to be awfully low power. Yet x86 has remained a world apart. We don't know quite how many well-known tricks AMD is throwing out, but the high-density layers, the shift for efficiency looks big in affordable x86 land. Will it get low enough? Will performance remain sufficiently in advance of CPU?

Does it matter? Isn't the future about introducing new factors, not fighting over who is finding today's sweetest spot on the performance curves?

So build HSA out. So integrate fast power-efficient cpu-efficient networking interconnects to connect up the many many cores. So keep attaching 4, 6 display outputs to cores. So keep building great GPUs. Make sure wireless, storage, all the very high bandwidth peripheral interconnects work great. So put wireless on chip. So build fast local stacked memory systems. So release/bundle ever more system on the chips.

The cpu wars are a distraction. It's the capability wars where real differentiation is to be got.

Women, I'm sorry, you're so much easier to tease and taunt (and otherwise out of rightly misregard) we think we know together how much better you are.

It's easy for men to forget that the everyday (or other) fancies they cross (that comes out or over) don't make them defilers, don't exclude them from erstwhile and honestly going about and yes sometimes slipping under that spell fall, interpersonal or sometimes out of or into awe and majesty.

The whole of causes feel set up to betray us, to always have been slipped in by the slippery miss step over commitment making forces. Left/right scuttle. Playing as flatlanders to a mirth less toothy grin, the pawing alpha animal, fate.

Cannibal Ox is back, & Blade of the Ronin is flipping great. Amazing beats. Listen now on Pitchfork, coming March 3rd.

Also digging the samurai vibe- getting a good Glitch Mob'ish like feel off it.

I'm kind of embarrassed we havent seen more people take up Nvidia's offer. Jetson TK1: a relatively low power board (<10w) for relatively cheap (<$200) with USB3 (way ahead of the crowd), usable GPU + actual Linux support (over time). Not just barebones- 2gb ram/16gb storage is onboard.

It's a little smaller than what one would get off the swank AMD mini-itx APU. TK1 in compare: about the same net price ($70 board+$70 cpu+$60 ram+storage), less wattage way less cpu less gpu, less connectivity. I guess you'd have to want to love small then. Ok, have found a new assumption: we're missing out by not building small AMD APU systems.

The Android sticks, at under $100, are tempting. But them and their GPU's linuxability skates from ok to poor, and their connectivity is poor, real bad with a lack of USB3.

I do hope we see Carrizo arrive in some well-connected #DenseCompute forms. And I do hope it is indeed a readily HSA compatible unit, for that too will be very interesting. NVidia, X1 looks interesting. If you can give Carrizo a solid run, that'll be most impressive. And I don't think AMD is going to leading fast enough with new embedded chips; you appear to have a sizable first mover advantage. Please do make sure to get X1 in actual people's hands.

Whoops leftover.

The really bad is actually dumber. The everyday fancy brings a shame sure. The complexities of how & why, wave hand, whatever. The other side is that we forget identities not feeling shame. We're surprised sometimes when not. We forget there are times when not captured in fancy, lose the self that's not lose down in.

Do create community networks. And do publicly and visibly cooperate with the feds. No one else will.

Open networks of the future expose as much network performance, as rich a set of operations and management metrics, as they can. Open networks are as much about connecting people to their networks as to the intertwined mass internetwork in of the world. A community net is one for communing not only across, but for intimateing directly with, facing as present other coming to find

Much more important to have an individual personhood than an or any kind of interpersonal one

There are a lot of ways in which #AugmentIntellect  abuts and runs up against the #RentSeeking titans that consume and consume and consume, the semi-immortal (yet still for all the advantage beyond the concievable that they are, gobsmackingly fallible/sometimes-self-destructive) growing titans that dwell far beyond the day to day. There's a pivot, from the old person-level adagae that absolute power corrupts absolutely, to a more wary problem of amassed powers, of stable power-bases. Some of it has to do with blocking permission, the obstruction to the workings and flailings of the small that their presence and actions create, but development of mega-entities, of fixed structures is it's own byzantine horror unto itself. That which is incomprehensible is free from acts of human correction? Where to with this opposition, and where to with what is innate about what has risen out of a once great age of prosperity?
