Tim Cook recently penned an op-ed in Time Magazine, You Deserve Privacy Online. Here’s How You Could Actually Get It. “I and others are calling on the U.S. Congress to pass comprehensive federal privacy legislation—a landmark package of reforms that protect and empower the consumer. Last year, before a global body of privacy regulators, I […]

RSS is Always Dying
January 17, 2019

I came across RRS feed in the early 2000’s through great Indie apps on the Mac like Net News Wire and others. It was a great was to aggregate all the news for hundreds, and when things got really crazy more than a thousand sites into a single convenient location. You could sync all the […]

Ars is reporting to have a new 5GHz chip, that will not exactly be available for retail sale this year. the chip company is asking system builders to bid for the chips in an online auction.

New Setup
January 15, 2019

There is something about a new setup. You get to start over, clean, void of distractions. The possibilities are endless. That is the part I really enjoy, like many I assume. I recently set up this publishing site, a backend to manage it, a service to backup and secure the data, and on and on. […]

Giving a Talk, Realizing
January 10, 2019

Time Tracking
January 08, 2019

There is always a time during the week when I think, “what have I been up to this week?” What do I have to show for being on the computer at night, checking my phone 139 times a day? What do I get out of this? In the spirit of ‘More Content’, I am giving […]

Free as in Beer?
January 08, 2019

Today Github, recently acquired by the new Microsoft, announced unlimited free repos for all. This is an interesting turn, after wide spread outcry and running to places like Gitlab after the MS finalized the purchase last year. I am more and more skeptical of free services, as we all should be I’m looking at you […]
