Wool hat: check, PNW rain coat: check, once again riding public transportation to and from work: awesomeness and nice to be working in a city again.

There is a script I can run at Amazon to determine how many employees started after me. I started 2 weeks ago. 13,027 people have started after me.

Yup that pretty much matches the C500 degradation curve for 300 or however many days you charged in a year...

Ten years ago, one of Johnnie Walker’s best-ever ads was an epic history lesson. An amazing 5 min continuous cut.

Classic Li-Ion degradation curve. Take it to one of those repair places to swap the old cell out with a new one. Loss can be 20% in 500 cycles. Then it just follows a curve down.

I had a 4hr meeting today that began with 45mins of reading 6 page documents without a word spoken. Then the discussion began. There is no path to cheat with misleading graphics as the salient points must be described. A big transition for me (a visual guy) and fascinating!

Oh my! I hit print for the first time yesterday in one building and went to another building, badged into the printer and the doc magically printed out. “Look ma, no printer drivers!” (Even from a mac)

This is pretty cool and inclusive: you can choose what pronoun you want to be addressed as in the Amazon phone tool. :)

A great letter from an intern helping drive STEM learning for girls. I learned a lot from this! (Ok full disclosure: she’s my daughter!)

New commute to Seattle. I’ll start biking soon. Is gas a sin or is it Mit Kohlensäure?
