Switched from screen to tmux. It took some adapting (after all these years!), but now I'm really happy with it. Also switched from native Terminal app to iTerm. The combination is sweet. (Especially after some custom key bindings.)

This seems similar to what WeHo did for pride.  I think if SF wants to be different, they should do paint an entire street with the rainbow pattern.  Even better, they should find a curvy, guardrail-less bridge and paint that, and then see all the cars fall off the side, and then call it Rainbow Road...

My old friend (and frat brother) Ara Knaian got a Time article about his work, with his name all over it!

This is sort of cool.  Go to the URL on your phone and it'll prompt you with some info about the project and how to begin.  Basically, for every 10 minutes you don't touch your phone, you will provide one day of clean water for a child in need.

Nerd moment: discussing machine names that fit our ST:TNG theme. We already added "spot" (data's cat), so +Jerry Liu suggested Targ, that klingon pet. Also on the table: "Lal" (Data's short-lived daughter), "Ogawa" (the nurse). 

Not acceptable (for length or spelling reasons) are Jerry's suggestions of "Crystalline Entity" and "Lwaxana"...

We were lucky to get a reservation at é by Jose Andrés on Saturday.  I knew that it would be an intimate setting with only 8 seats.  What I didn't know was that the chefs would be on the other side of the bar prepping the food for us, so we got to interact with them.  They really like foam and spheres...

At the state dinner with the French President:
"""
Ms Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the vice-president in the television comedy series Veep , sat next to US vice-president Joe Biden.
“Look who I’m sitting next to,” she told reporters when asked what her favourite part of the dinner was.
“Hey, stop screwin’ around, she’s my date,” said Mr Biden, interrupting, before laughing. “Just kidding,” he said.
"""
I'm such a Joe Biden fan.

[super nerdy question] Anyone know what a typical bitrate of 4k video would be using VP9? My attempts to google this keep leading to layperson articles. It seems based on the spec that you should get reasonable quality out of 10Mbps, but I'd love to hear what youtube is encoding videos as, for example.

Last night, +Nick White opened the fridge to heat up some chili for dinner. We then proceeded to feed the cats, but when we placed the plates of food on the ground, we couldn't find Jack.  We thought he was busy playing with something and would come down later, so we didn't really try searching for him.  And then a few minutes later, Nick hears a thud in the fridge and discovers that Jack was in there.  He's fine, and he didn't seem particularly disturbed by what happened.  

So yeah, in case any of you have ever thought of having Nick and me catsit/dogsit/babysit, you might want to re-think that...

  • Nick White

    Software Engineer at MyLikes, undergrad at MIT, PhD dropout from USC, formerly at Google.

  • Jerry Liu

    Jerry is a Professional Panda Hugger. When he's not cuddling a baby panda, he works on Operations and Customer Service at MyLikes.

  • Kitty

    Kitty sat down in front of the door to a friend's apartment back in 2005, but she couldn't keep her. We couldn't say no. Kitty is very sedate and happy to sunbathe or curl up in a warm lap. Though, she is very picky about which humans she likes.

  • Captain Jack

    We got Jack in 2010 from the LA Shelter. They claimed he was 8 weeks old, but based on his fur and weight, he was probably closer to 6 weeks. He's a mutt, but shows a mix of tabby and possibly bengal. He's completely insane and acts like a puppy, particularly to Nick.
