Weekend, yay, don't have to work, however I still wake up before dawn today and it is nice and quiet at that time so I can think and play 16384 which has cured my addiction to 2048, by giving me a harder puzzle. It feels like you are very creative when you just wake up and perhaps I should setup the blog earlier and type rather than play, who knows maybe some ideas will be useful.

Today I was thinking about how to better do sustainability and use prison labor to feed itself, after all they got nothing bit time to work on farming. I guess that was the logic behind prison ships to Australia.  Maybe someday we will colonize the universe the same way. I am not sure why in this age of technology we still burn fossil fuels to move tractors and food to cities. I often wonder what life would be like in the countryside, if we were tech workers there. There is no reason we need to commute to our tech jobs. But farming isn't easy and we probably don't have the skills so back to my premise of farming prisoners, might be a good way to reform people by teaching them farming and tech out in the countryside.

Last night watched Shark Tank for a few min, than 20/20 had an interesting case, that they managed to work into the morning news, oh TV what a wasteland of commercials and factory built programs, but it is easy to turn on and you get so much content on an antenna these days.

Not quite sure anymore who I am writing for, I know the ads on a blog don't get you any money.

I had a great followup session on IoT using the Electric Imp. Result is I can now do stuff like: and a light turns off on my Imp. Or the next iteration was curl -H "x-api-key: somepassword" because we do need to have security built in :)

We even touched on the Rocky Framework.

new body

Given that we get old and our bodies get worn out and broken, I would like to be able to upgrade my hardware.  However I guess the closest thing to this would be reproducing and programming the new firmware.

Burnout and Ops

I burned out at a start-up some 3 years ago before I got a stable good job with a large company.  Back than I was hoping to give the developers some more power and get them to define the kind of servers that we would need so that I can automate the starting of these servers on AWS.  The guy who hired me was talking to his next job he saw the writing on the wall.  This talk is very enlighting, wish I had listened to it before the job

Little Bits

These look like they would be fun and educational, however they aren't cheap.  I am thinking of getting one for my 6 year old, maybe in a year or now, haven't decided.

you can buy one plus one today

Funny that for black Friday the only concession One Plus One gives is that you can actually buy the phone.
