This is a fantastic interview, for anyone interested in policy and tech.
Google’s chairman and former CEO reflects on his first time testifying before Congress, and what Washington does and doesn’t understand about Silicon Valley.

It doesn't sound that good, but I feel like I have to try this drink in the middle.

The Spotify queueing interface blows the doors off iTunes. I have no idea how Apple hasn't figured it out after all these years.

That makes more sense. The Spotify queuing interface drives me up the wall.

Interesting Supreme Court case coming up this year. Is it unconstitutional for the police to put a GPS tracker on a suspect's car without a warrant?
In November, the Supreme Court will hear arguments on a case about GPS surveillance that had some judges alluding to Orwell’s “1984.”

Yeah this is going to be a fascinating case. I'm of the opinion that this kind of police activity should require a warrant - it's different from simply tailing a car or a person, because the government is physically intruding on your private property (which is explicitly forbidden by the 4th amendment) to place a surveillance device. I don't see how it's different from going into someone's house to bug the place, which would require a warrant.

What do the social features in Spotify actually do? Is it really just about seeing other people's playlists? Because I feel like there's way cooler stuff you can do than that.

Ok it's still got some weirdness, but it's way better than it was.

This is amazing.

One of the last pictures I took yesterday - Aurora Australis - the southern lights - dancing with the constellation Orion. An amazing moment.
