I’m done blaming the police.
So I recently discovered Steven Universe. I fully recommend it (it’s on Cartoon Network and Hulu). Some people on Tumblr, etc. get a little too into it, but it is quite smart. Don’t let the animation style make you think it isn’t.
My thoughts on the talks put forth at the local TED event. Also, if you are in the PacNW, and find yourself at a McMenamins, try the Pike Place Cod sandwich. SoOoOoOo good!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving for those in the US (or not in the US, but who celebrate it anyway). We are reprising our plan from last year, which is to meet up with some friends at the local Brazilian Steakhouse. My Portuguese is a little rusty, but I’m pretty sure the name of the place translates to “Meat Coma”.
This is why science can’t have nice things…
Better pickings this time around. Enjoy folks!
Back from Disneyland. If you find yourself at California Adventure, the ride ‘Soaring’ is a treat. And ‘California Screaming’ is a respectable roller coaster.
Another two weeks, another span of lots of incremental stories, without much in the way of breakthroughs. If this keeps up, I’m gonna have to expand my sources pool.
Thinking about thinking about…
Curves And Surfaces are SEXY!
Pickings were kinda thin these past two weeks, lots of stories that were ho-hum variations on topics discussed before. But there was still some stuff that caught my eye.
The First – Yesterday was Bug’s first day of Kindergarten.
The Anniversary was Saturday, 22 years of marriage. My secret to a happy marriage? I argue with you people instead of my wife. ;-)
Only one link about the eclipse, and it’s minor. You are welcome.
Not a ton of links today, I just didn’t see that much of interest this week.
Why Finland? Because I got a lot of respect for Finland. Lots of the feel-good social democracy stuff of their neighbors, but still have a tradition of not taking crap from the communists next door. And everyone goes about with a puukko. I catch flak from people who freak out I carry a folding pocket knife everywhere I go.
Polygons, point clouds, and polyhedra – Oh My!
The first entry in a (hopefully) weekly series on how we simulate physics, from the basics on.
First day of the official Tech Tuesday!
Tech Tuesday starts in two weeks, not two days ago, as expected, because Will & I have lives.
Just finished a two day Hackathon, and this will be the last Tech Thursday, since we are moving it to Tuesday (where, let’s be honest, it rightfully belongs – Tech Tuesday just reads better).
Release deadline coming up, so light list this week. I also have some other technical posts in the hopper, but I haven’t had time to finish editing them. Hopefully I will next week.
Back from Maui with a fresh set.
I’m in Hawaii on vacation, but I still wanted you all to have something.
Another set of tech links, free of any mention of Hitler or Marijuana!
Another Thursday, another round of tech links! Enjoy!
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not “Eureka!” (I found it!) but “That’s funny …”
— Isaac Asimov
‘The most frightening phrase in the Russian language is “That’s odd.”

More of what Oscar thought was cool in Science.
Another set of tech links. Sorry for the light commentary, busy week at work…
I’m starting to think Will is using me to put these together when he wants a day to screw around and not produce content…
Like Tech Tuesday, except I’ve been busy. More Tech News, More Tech Commentary, More Geeking Out in the Comments.
Some experiences are best shared, because you really DON’T want to experience it for yourself.
Another round of examining engineering tradeoffs!
Materials, Machines, & More! A new Tech Linky!
Wherein I dare to hope…
Time to talk about technology!
Some technology links and light discussion.
