There were thoughts of filling this with a little more substance and they were summarily disregarded. It’s going now, or never.
Smaller post means less content, but there is still plenty to read. From quantum physics ruining your day [again] to problems with traffic systems, from GPS screw-ups to the end of the internet, real life with internet lag to future seeking movies, photography to the art of making a globe map, fish that walk and horoscopes. So let’s keep it short and jump in:
Well, there’s been a lot read and a lot discarded over the past week. And a lot has been linked below. Perhaps a little excessive, most likely just excited.
So, let’s dig into everything from monkeys to spiders, from satellites to automatons, from doctors to bus drivers, from videos to headphones, from plants to skeletons, from donuts to clean water, from videogames to obsolete computers, from Alzheimers to neuroscience, from criminals to references, from crabs to talking plants, from holograms to algorithms, and finishing off with somebody’s take on how we see Christmas:
So, this is late again. Because reasons and bacon and frogs’ legs. And candy. Delicious candy.
Random stuff in here, from the past couple of weeks. Nothing much since has been that interesting. People spying on people like it’s a surprise, and the same old same old. Read through and tell us what is actually in here. It should be good.
Let’s get this one out before it’s more than week since the previous. Very few categories this time, books, art, news, internet and technology, and of course the obligatory humour and horoscopes. We’ll run through some takes on Disneys business model, various writers rules for writing, privacy and the Big Gs as well as some satire on the subject, a note on why brand name awareness is important, speculation on new phones, an older article on mafioso coders, books in the palm of your hand, their hovercraft is full of eels, how to quit the big Fb, and advice on taking the best selfies from the best of the best.
So, let’s start with Disneys latest anthropomorphic venture:
So there’s quite a few technology and internet articles in here and a larger than normal number of links to movie and television stuff. Two doctors make an appearance – Who and Doctor[ow], the seedier side of the interwebs gets a run down, malware detection for mobiles, everyone’s favourite “WW”, VR making people sick, stupid theives, maps that never happened and maps that correlate the unrelatable, Cookie Monster wants it, advice for artists and role players, warehouses and horoscopes, a song of meat and vegies, the original jpg girl, baking companies going ironic, pictures from space, Bitcoins, bunked scientific theories, getting lucky in your underwear, copyright vigilantism, the return of Omni, cutting up time and some tomfoolery from the AVN Expo, last year. Yeah, I know, it’s late.
