Gotta love that porch life.
Stop thinking, just do the work. The thinking can come later, and you’ll have perspective on it.
One of my favorite GIFs of one of my favorite NASA visualizations to preview Monday’s It’s Okay To Be Smart and get you excited and all that jazz. Think you can guess what tomorrow’s vid is about?
Blue = sea salt
Green = organics
Red = dust
White = sulfates
Check out the full NASA video below, featuring simulated global “stuff in the air” over a two year period on Earth. Ain’t Earth beautiful? (Even if, as in this case, it’s a 3 million processor-hour computer animation)
I could look at this all day.
- Resilience over strength
- Pull over push
- Risk over safety
- Systems over objects
- Compasses over maps
- Practice over theory
- Disobedience over compliance
- Emergence over authority
- Learning over education
The page includes a little description/explanation of each principle.
Thinking about this again.

most HTTPS websites on the Internet still don’t support forward secrecy, which means that a large chunk of your past communications with those servers is vulnerable to decryption when private SSL keys are compromised. For example, if someone has been intercepting your HTTPS-encrypted messages to Yahoo for the past several years and then stole a copy of Yahoo’s private key yesterday with Heartbleed, they would be able to use it to go back and decrypt the previously-unintelligible recording of your old communications today — if those communications weren’t made using a forward-secrecy-enabled connection.
In the aftermath of yesterday’s events, it’s clear that forward secrecy is necessary to protect against unforseeable threats to SSL private keys. Whether that threat is an existing or future software bug, an insider who steals the key, a secret government demand to enable surveillance, or a new cryptographic breakthrough, the beauty of forward secrecy is that the privacy of today’s sessions doesn’t depend on keeping information secret tomorrow.
It’s time the internet starts to embrace the importance of security the same way it did design the last ten years.
In Vivian Kubrick’s documentary on the making of The Shining, several crew members can be seen wearing a black sweater with “The Shining" in red letters, and a white hawk hovering above the text. The hawk is a nod to Stanley Kubrick’s production company, "Hawk Films Ltd."
These custom sweaters were given as gifts by actor Jack Nicholson to everyone on the crew during the production.

Heart rate, temperature, respiration, and perspiration: These are our autonomous functions—our core physiological processes—that signal stress or arousal and can betray our otherwise cool exteriors. Stanford researcherGregory Kovacs is reading these signals through a modified Xbox game controller. By adding a new, sensor-laden back plate, he can measure heart rate, blood flow, rate and depth of breath, and how hard and fast the user shakes the controller.
In response to these measurements, Kovacs has designed a game that can maximize excitement by adding more stimulus (like bad guys or explosions) whenever a gamer’s heart rate drops. Or it could do the reverse, ramping down the zombie factor for someone who wants to take it easy (but insists on playing zombie games to do so).
all sensors all the time responding to all the things.
