Suggestion: try showing friends and family a realtime object recognition demo during the holidays- my family was pretty amazed. All hot dog not a hot dog jokes aside the general public doesn't really realize how far along some of these technologies are.

Wow. Over 15 years ago I wrote a super simple tool to recognize "moving hand gestures" from a fixed camera location. Look at what can be done today on a phone (gif)!

If we fail to stand up to President Trump, we will be sending a message to all future presidents that they can simply ignore our system of checks and balances.

I usually use Gmail in Safari. It has its own problems but still sucks less than the app.

The number of times that the auto wipers have come on in LA on the 10 consecutive dry day is silly. And the menu to shut it off is two clicks, why?

I am also almost finished with Broad Band by Claire Evans. So many accounts of internet history that I was unfamiliar with; it was awesome to hear those stories.

The book provides a glimpse into how one person survived horrors mentally. There are critiques of the author and the work that should be read as well. It also has had a large historical readership in America so is of interest for that reason as well.
