What was intended to be a 2-hour leisurely bicycle ride turned into an epic 8-hour trek through the backroads of Namyangju and, ultimately, along the Han river back to Hannam dong. What a way to spend the day.
Tonight my wife and I finished ~3 weeks of binge watching all 5 seasons of Breaking Bad. What a ride! Being as immersed in the internet as I am, it's hard to see a popular series after its run its course without any spoilers crossing my path, but this time I only got a minor one (courtesy of a clip from the Emmy Awards). It was worse with season 4 of Walking Dead, when someone posted a RIP for one of the characters on Facebook while I was still watching season 2. Now we're looking for the ne...

Happy anniversary to me. This month marks 10 years that I've been a nonsmoker. What a tremendous difference that has made in my life. If you're still smoking, I invite you to join me on the other side. It's a very different world.
Pics from DConf 2013 at Facebook. DConf 2014 kicks off in less than six hours... and I'm not there :( Early in January it was a certainty that I'd be going, but it's just not in the cards this year. Aside from the great lectures, it's the valuable face time with all these guys I've been collaborating with online in one form or another for the past decade that I'm going to miss.

I got an email from a Google Talent Scout asking if I'd "be open to discussing 2014 prospects here or otherwise to keep in touch for the future." He says he's been checking out my open source work on github-- which, from my viewpoint, is extremely limited in scope and not very Googley--and that it's potentially a great fit at the company. My intution is that this is a sort of blanket email sent out to people who use github. At first I thought it was some sort of phishing scam, but the links...
Ken Ham (of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum and the Ark Park) is in a snit because Pat Robertson said, on the air, that the earth has to be older than 6,000 years. He posits a rebuttal for each point Robertson made. Just two of the countless interpretations of the infallible word of god. Bot of them are true Christians, of course, even if they can't really agree on what that means. https://www.facebook.com/aigkenham/posts/750013111695714 For a third perspective, see PZ's commentary...
