Dear anti-Trump protesters. Thank you for exercising your right to do so. But please remember that the other side did this same kind of thing when Obama was elected. With the same chants and slogans. With the same worries and concern about their families and their futures. Then they went back and regrouped and put found a candidate who idealized their worst fears and distrust, who would reinforce these misconceptions to gain his own power. When you have worn out your shock and anger and cried out your sadness, please remember that your next step should involve finding candidates (plural!) for every level of government who can restore #hope, who can repair and rekindle #faith in our system from within, and do so without resorting to the idea that we need to break everything before we can #rebuild it.

You can't fail if you don't try. You can't learn if you don't fail. Don't be afraid to fail.

Go be good nerds and join me in supporting this great fund raising effort. Then go vote for the charities that you want your donations to support. Anyone want to make a video for +Akili Dada ? ‪#‎dftba‬ #p4a2015

My thoughts go out to my Muslim friends and their families, whose lives will be made more difficult by those who will react exactly how ISIL/ISIS hopes and use the attacks #Paris  to show off their bigotry and ignorance by acting out against anyone different than themselves instead of standing in solidarity with those who have nothing to do with the attacks.

One of my favorite Wingman events.  Time to get your #craftbeer  on.
It's time for Denizens of the Dark!  Don't forget to check out our latest beer releases, too.

Score 1 for Apple on the OS upgrade front.  Never had an issue.  Windows 7 to 10 didn't work with the auto-updater, so I had to find an ISO and burn a DVD (good thing I have an MSDN account through work).  Then the install was about 8GB larger than it should be, so (now that my license is supposedly upgraded so 10 will continue to work on this computer) I reinstalled 10 from scratch.  Nope, no license and no way to activate windows.  A few web searches later and I figure out how to get in touch with MS tech support.  Thankfully, MS seems to hire competent support people and after another 30-40 minutes of her connected remotely into my computer and poking around on things, I have a working Windows 10 install.  All of this because I wanted to poke around for 10 minutes and see what all of the fuss is about (and maybe eventually play Fallout 4 when it comes out).  And now I've confirmed that 40GB is nowhere near enough space for Windows (it takes up about 12GB more space than I was lead to believe) so I may need to go through all of this again after I repartition my Mac to make more room for Windows.  Yay.

Be careful where you source your photos.  But seriously, Google has a good copyright infringement case here -- Amazon didn't even bother crediting the photographer.
One more reason to be certain that +Google Cloud Platform has the world's best infrastructure: while bragging about their network, a competitor shows images of Google's network.  (Happened last week, see screen capture below.) Thanks for the acknowledgment, +Amazon Web Services! But next time please show our logo on the slide :-)
