Nine Day Weekend
Today was the first day of a nine day weekend. I think I like phrasing it that way, it makes it feel like less of a significant bit of time off and so I feel better about not actually doing anything of note. I’ll still probably be bored by Monday afternoon. Biked again today. The weather was much nice than last weekend - almost 20 degrees cooler. With today’s 63 miles, I hit 400...

I write about keeping up my weekly cycling average, then get this forecast: Guess I won’t get another ride in until Sunday then… Also, I mused about finding new music last week, and Scalzi posted a thread on Whatever on that same topic. Coincidence?! …Actually, yes, it is.
Ever had to explain String Theory via text message? I got this text from Koala late on Thursday: I just heard this craziness about computer code being discovered within string theory.

It’s not an easy question to answer - it is perhaps easier to answer the question of the genres of music that I...
Not an April Fool: Social Media & Privacy →
I was going to write something about the “Girls Around Me” essay that was posted on Cult Of Mac a few days back, but Charlie Stross beat me to it.
