Crime-Fighting Robots Go On Patrol In Silicon Valley « CBS San Francisco

Stephen Mack
I'm not a natural-born citizen, but if I were to run for President, my platform would hinge on not just the usual liberal stuff I always go on and on about like voting rights, freedom of choice, minimum wage, drug legalization, etc., but these two items I would push in particular:
100_9385[1].JPG
1. No more time changes, ffs. - Stephen Mack
2. Before Halloween, ONLY Halloween decorations. Before Thanksgiving, ONLY Thanksgiving decorations. Christmas decorations, carols, and sales before December 1 will be considered treason. - Stephen Mack
In conclusion, please vote for me in 2016. - Stephen Mack
Mr Mack! Mr Mack! If I could follow up on #2, what is your position on seasonal latte beverages? - Andrew C (✔)
It's a weak platform but it does benefit from being achievable so that's something. - Mark H
Andrew, thank you. This is difficult to say. You may have seen press reports about some of my earlier papers, written when I was in college (and highly impressionable), endorsing pumpkin spice lattes, eggnog lattes, peppermint lattes, and other similar fare. Let me be clear: I WISH TO REFUDIATE ANY POSITIVE WORDS I HAVE EVER WRITTEN IN THE PAST ABOUT SUCH ITEMS IN THE MOST STRIDENT... more... - Stephen Mack
Mark, my staff and I thank you for the glowing endorsement. I will now kiss your wife and/or baby and firmly shake your hand while gazing around the room. - Stephen Mack
FLIP-FLOPPER - Andrew C (✔)
I can agree with most, but I would propose a change in #2. Christmas decorations are only allowed the earliest of thanskgiving weekend. Its the long weekend to spend to put everything up. And they must be taken down by the 15th of Jan (This is leniency due to vacations, trips, and recovery from the holiday hangovers.) I would also like to offer that valentines and easter decorations/gifts/mentions are not allowed until a month before the actual holiday. #DownwithHolidayCreep! - Me
We have no babies (by choice) and my wife finds public displays of affection from strangers abhorrent. You'd still have our vote if you campaigned in a mankini, though, because we welcome challenging politicians. - Mark H
*puts on ball gown and beret* - Johnny from iPhone
*digs for blackmail material on Mr. Mack, hopes to make a fortune* - Brian Johns
CW, I would hereby like to offer you the position of Running Mate. Mark, you are hereby hired as my wardrobe consultant. Johnny, you are elected Chief of Chief of Staff. Sparky, you're going to be BUSY, there's an awful lot of dirt out there. Fortunately, I believe that thanks to my two positions enumerated above, I will be elected in a landslide despite my youthful "indiscretions." - Stephen Mack
You want us to elect you on your number 1 and number 2. Sounds like a typical politician to me. #shitofthebulls - Kristin
Stephen, I'd like to be your press secretary. This is a campaign I can get behind. - Corinne L
Welcome aboard, Corinne! Kristin, my #2 doesn't stink. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Where were you born? - Meg VMeg
Don't answer that, if it's, like, related to a security question or something. - Meg VMeg
My money is on Kenya. - Kristin
Ha! (England.) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
One of us!!!! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
That's all the time we have today for questions. - Corinne L
*is escorted off-stage while holding up Nixon v-fingers and making Howard Dean yelps* - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Stephen, you are the bright spot in my evening. Want to come take over Sacramento city government with me? - Corinne L
Sounds fun! Are there a lot of kickbacks in it for us? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Of course! How about arena naming rights? Or perhaps free parking in perpetuity? - Corinne L
When are you going to post your birth certificate? And your income tax? But mainly your birth certificate? - Stephan
Please hold all questions until our next press conference tomorrow at noon Pacific Standard Time. Thank you. - Corinne L
You won't be running unopposed. I'll be running against you on a platform that includes year round egg nog, requires some actual pumpkin flavor in all things "pumpkin spice" (not just the spices), and allows nothing Christmas related until Santa enters Macy's at the end of the Thanksgiving Day parade, the way it should be. Halloween things will be allowed year round, for the benefit of... more... - April Russo
I want to pick this thread up and hug it. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Please refrain from touching the candidate, sir. Thank you. - Corinne L
PEOPLE OF FRIENDFEED: I'd like to announce my third key platform item: Any big-box retailer that opens on Thanksgiving will be levied a special tax on sales on Thanksgiving Day -- at the rate of 100%. - Stephen Mack
Can I be the one Fox News interviews after I accuse you of an impropriety and then rescind my statement? #iwantmy15minutes - Janet from FFHound!

The First Real Reason We Need To Sleep - Business Insider
"Scientists have just reported the first major mechanical reason our brains need to sleep — certain cleaning mechanisms in the brain work better when we shut the brain down. Just like how dump trucks take to the city streets during the pre-dawn hours because there's less traffic, our brain's cleaners also work best when there's less going on." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet

Karl Stefanovic's sexism experiment: Today presenter wears same suit for a year
"Angered by the sexism he saw being heaped upon his female colleagues – and attempts to downplay it – Karl Stefanovic decided to conduct an experiment. He wore the same blue suit on air, two days in a row. Then three. A month ticked by without a ripple. Now, a full year has passed – and he is still wearing the same cheap Burberry knock-off, every morning, on Channel Nine's Today program." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"Not a single audience member has asked about it, he says. Fashion commentators and other media also seem oblivious. Yet co-host Lisa Wilkinson still receives regular and unsolicited fashion appraisals, as she revealed in her well-received Andrew Olle lecture last year.

Show all
"The prevailing mantra holds that as our phones become increasingly smart and constantly connected, that we're walking around with the equivalent of computers in our pocket. These intelligent devices can do practically everything their PC predecessors could, from email and web browsing to document sharing and creation, music and photos, and any application you can think of. In fact, I'd argue that we're not only seeing people spend more hours with their mobile devices than traditional PCs, they're more functional as well - as the smartphone has surpassed the PC. Ever try taking photos with your iMac? It's tough." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
Your phone wants to kill you. ~Amy Pohler - Eric - Regulate from iPhone
Was this prompted by being asked where you got that graph, when it was from Fitbit's web site? It struck me how phone-centric we are these days. - Bruce Lewis
@Bruce it wasn't prompted by Stephen's asking about the Web version. I've been thinking about this for a few weeks, as I was using my phone and then put it down to pick up the laptop, and started thinking about all of this. - Louis Gray

FF Team, how come you can't find your Twitter friends on the service any longer? Is this due to Twitter changes? Are there plans to restore it? Thanks.
Screen shot 2010-10-14 at 12.37.45 PM.png
yes, this. - holly #ravingfangirl
If you put &source=twitterandroid at the end of the REST request, I bet they can punch through any of twitter's API changes. - Andy Bakun
did not the twitter API change some time ago ? - Peter Dawson
Yes and yes. - Benjamin Golub
thanks Louis this is a huge loss to the service you provide guys. Find your friends › Find Twitter friends Finding your Twitter friends We could not find your Twitter friends. - Thomas Power
This has been fixed. - Benjamin Golub
Something fixed on FriendFeed? Hmmm... - Cliff Gerrish
right on. thanks again, Ben! :) - holly #ravingfangirl
I'd be happy if I could get my Twitter to import again. Has not for... months. - Alix May
Yes Cliff, things do get fixed here. Not always as quickly as we'd like, but that's universal. - Bruce Lewis
Ben is awesome, of course. Thank you sir. - Louis Gray
Things get fixed but no new features will be added. - Akiva
something wrong with ff. - Tayfun Yaşar
Like Alix said, importing twitter not working still... - Cem
Ben: keeper of the flame. - Laura Norvig
Thanks Louis this really does need fixing FF is the only place that aggregates twitter feeds well - Thomas Power
Fantastic Ben, Louis thank you so much. - Thomas Power
Bipolar owl: I'm sorry you feel that way. I actually did commit a change that fixes this and a few weeks ago another change that fixed adding Twitter accounts. Unfortunately both fixes are for public Twitter accounts only. It looks like you have a private account. Stay tuned! - Benjamin Golub
Thanks for the fixes and the great attitude Ben. I imagine there isn't a huge incentive to continue to patch things around here, but it's clearly a great product and people are still passionate about it. Rock on, dude. - John

Map: The Africa without Ebola - The Washington Post - http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...
Map: The Africa without Ebola - The Washington Post
"Despite clear geographical limits to the Ebola outbreak, many Americans seem confused. How else could you explain the two Rwandan children sent home from school in New Jersey, despite the fact their East African home country is Ebola-free (and further from West Africa than New Jersey is to Texas)? Or the resignation of a teacher in Kentucky due to a backlash to her traveling to Kenya? Or the significant cancellation of tourist trips to places like Kenya, Zimbabwe and South Africa? These countries are nowhere near the West African countries where Ebola is actually a problem. Frustrated by this, Anthony England, a British chemist who earned a doctorate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has spent a significant amount of time in sub-Saharan Africa, decided to make a map to help explain what countries currently have Ebola cases and which don't. You can see the map above." - rönin from Bookmarklet
I think what surprised me the most when I first learned about it and what most people still fail to grasp is just how large of a continent Africa is. - rönin
The state of geography education in America is, like the state of most education in America, abysmal. Our understanding of African geography is likely worse than our understanding of the geography of any other continent. That's really saying something, since I would be willing to bet most Americans couldn't find half of the 50 states on a map without a few hints. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist

My conclusion after using Inbox for several days: After using e-mail for 28 years, I do not wish to completely transform my e-mail workflow.
I think I'd feel the same way. - Tamara J. B.
I find it interesting that Google is still trying to reinvent something which has become in so many ways a footnote in Internet history. I don’t know many people who rely primarily on e-mail to communicate outside of their jobs, really. - Akiva
Lucky! How did you get it, Stephen? - Louis Gray
^ hehe, very funny. - Stephen Mack
I really just want an email integration with Slack. I could just make a few channels and have all the crap funneled into them. - Heisenberg
If I was on mobile a lot I think I could really get used to it and appreciate it. I heard Leo Laporte say it was the first time he got to Inbox Zero ever and he loves it. But it's not really Inbox Zero, it just looks like it. I think that's the appeal. On laptop/desktop it doesn't make much sense at all. - Laura Norvig
+1 Laura. It seems like sweep is just a more polite word for delete. - Todd Hoff
The bundling is pretty good, though. Today I have: 25+ Updates, 25+ Promos, 25+ Social, 25+ Forums, 25+ Finance. NO REAL MAIL. Thanks for pointing out I have no real friends, Gmail. - Laura Norvig
Hasn't social conversation largely moved to social networks and away from email? - Todd Hoff
OK phew. I'm glad I'm not the only one who really isn't all that taken with Inbox. I want to like it more. I just...don't. Hoping that changes over time. - Hookuh Tinypants
For fine-grain control, manually setting up filters is best via the regular gmail web interface. However, for rapid consumption (and reduction to zero inbox), it seems Inbox is like a hack saw, suitable as mobile app. Thinking of a pin as another sort of star with snooze function appear useful. As for reminders: there are those generated by Gmail tasks, Keep, Google Now ("remind me to... more... - Adriano

I would love to try Slack but I work with a bunch of dinosaur luddites. Well, about 75-80% of my team. - Laura Norvig
We use Slack where I work. It's pretty cool. Got a friend of mine that's working on a dedicated Slack client for Windows, that can be minimized to the tray, so you don't have to keep it open in a browser tab. http://www.donationcoder.com/forum... - April Russo
We just adopted Slack. We like it. Integrates nicely with Jira. - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Slack would be a useful collaboration tool for TiVo to discuss implementing a screensaver. - Heisenberg

Yeah, I never did get the duct tape though, so I had to use clear packaging tape instead (with a sock stuffed between the iPhone and my hat to get the correctish angle). - Paul Buchheit

Very Cool Paul! - Jeff P. Henderson

this was perfect, I opened up my Paris map and followed you :) - İpek Aral
I'm surprised you were able to follow. I didn't have a map (my iPhone was taped to my head!) so I made a number of wrong turns, though the high-level route was pretty basic. - Paul Buchheit
Saw the vimeo on your stream and watched a little of it. Great stuff! Cool to see new iphone vid quality. (er 3gs? quality, hmm) Oh yeah, and enjoy Paris! - Jay
It's actually a 3GS, not an iphone 4. - Paul Buchheit
I think I might tape a photo of Paul with an iPhone taped to his head to my head because I want to get arrested for being a menace. - Akiva

Ahhh this explains the "ducktape in Paris" stuff LOL :D (that picture is full of geeky win!) - Susan Beebe
@Paul just curious how much battery did you have left after you were done recording? - BRҰANSAҰS
Something like 22%, as I recall. I had put the phone in airplane mode to reduce wireless consumption and also because I'm concerned that an incoming call would stop the video or something. - Paul Buchheit
Not bad. I guess you could get at least 2 hours of recording on one charge. - BRҰANSAҰS from BuddyFeed

My impressions of Ello so far
ello-ss.png
Show all
1. It's a stretch to call it "beta" -- seems more alpha level in terms of stability or feature set. - Stephen Mack
2. It's completely illegible to me on my mobile device. Like, I literally cannot read the light gray text on either the white background or the black background at the font size being used. - Stephen Mack
3. Zero privacy controls, and that's by design. That's causing some consternation: http://notyourexrotic.tumblr.com/post... - Stephen Mack
4. When the site is working, and when viewed on a desktop/laptop, the design feels responsive, elegant, and is very generous in terms of displaying artwork. As an example, try looking at this guy's feed: https://ello.co/justincline (I think that should work for anyone, even if you're not signed up). - Stephen Mack
They should probably warn people that it wasn't designed for IE. I'll have to wait until I get home to see if all the issues I'm having are browser-specific or the site overall. For now it's just clunky as hell - very alpha more than beta. - Hookuh Tinypants
Hookuh, ah, I hadn't tried IE. Sorry to hear. I've been using Chrome mostly. - Stephen Mack
Yeah, the privacy stuff (and inability to block) is too sketchy for me. I could wish Tumblr were better in this regard, but even some rudimentary controls are better than none. - Jennifer Dittrich
A friend on FB called Ello "Tumblr for adults". - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew, that's apt. A random person commenting on a friend's FB post about Ello called it, "It's similar to twitter but not a clusterfezzik of communication going every which way. Also its design is very minimalistic and it feels like being in a really expensive and trendy Soma restaurant where it's dark and the menu is in 10pt Courier font and the portoins are really small." - Stephen Mack
Looks good but clunky to navigate. And this posting/commenting thing is confusing to me. ETA: Ahh, it's just automagically prepping me to post on someone's feed. I get it now. - Corinne L
Well, it's no Facebook... *runs* - MoTO: #TeamMarina
The search is a bit slow, but I imagine their systems are a little busy. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Yeah, the whole thing is a bit slow. - Stephen Mack
So it's just like FriendFeed except for no privacy, no private groups/rooms, no DMs, no auto-import of feeds/RSS, no IM/Alerts (not that it works here anymore), no friend-of-friend discovery, no bumping of posts up to the top, no bookmarklet, no support for #hashtags, no real-time or pause, no custom lists of friends (everyone's either "Friend" or "Noise", no My Discussions link, no... more... - Stephen Mack

Although I played sports my whole life I have never heard the "n-word" used more than our neighborhood courts when the 8 and 9 year old boys are playing. It's every other word whether a coached game or pickup, yes most players are black. Normally I'm just passing by not my problem.
But now we have a boy and if he wants I'll teach him basketball. He would play with those boys too. What am I supposed to do to handle that? What is he supposed to do? - Steve C Team Marina
Teach him to be respectful. - Janet from FFHound!
You're going to want to explain the context of the term. You don't want him saying it thinking it's a term of endearment when it will likely be looked at as disrespect. - Eric - Regulate
I know literally nothing about parenting, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. I do spend a lot of time reading and thinking about racism, and probably the most helpful thing you can do for a young person is educate them about the historical context of racism. That's how I got into this, being assigned Black Like Me and the autobiography of Frederick Douglass in school. Racism... more... - Lo
J Smooth makes a case for the "standard" of use here: https://www.youtube.com/watch... I get what he's saying; that it's the relationship people have with each other and with certain words that affect usage and received meaning. Like me calling my wife "honey" verses a perfect stranger. But I don't completely buy it. Even among "us" context is important. As it was with the... more... - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Somewhere down the line, using "nigger" even affectionately didn't sound right coming out of my mouth anymore. I can't explain why but it's something akin to calling my wife "bitch". I couldn't do it, even in jest. And she wouldn't allow it. I think it's instructional that in my generation, you couldn't get away with using nigger around your elders until you had some years behind you.... more... - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Bottom line, I'd suggest advising your son to avoid that minefield. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Thanks peeps, he would definitely never say it if I had anything to do with it but will still be surrounded by it so I'll have to explain it to him like Lo said. And since I have coached many sports and teams before I'd have to figure out how I'd deal with it from that angle too. - Steve C Team Marina
I don't have a problem telling kids or even grown people to please not use the n word so much. Usually people aren't even aware they're saying it so often. And in Oakland, the SE Asians & latino kids use it more than a lot of the black kids! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Jennifer Garner's Passionate Speech on Sexism in Hollywood: Ben Affleck Is Only Asked About His Co-Star's ''Tits''
""The fact that there even needs to be a Women in Hollywood event is a little bit sad," gorgeous Garner said during the annual event at the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills. "I mean, the men in Hollywood event is every day—it's called Hollywood. Fifty-one percent of the population should not have to have to schedule a special event to celebrate the fact that in an art that tells the story of what it means to be human and alive, we get to play a part."" - Eric - Regulate from Bookmarklet
You'd think that the editor would have tripped over that "gorgeous Garner" the same way I did. I mean, way to undercut the quote. - Steele Lawman
I guess their idea is that it's only sour grapes if women who aren't gorgeous say such things... - Spidra Webster
Wow, I didn't even notice that, but it is E!. - Eric - Regulate

Recurring dreams: 1. I'm in high school and I can't remember my locker combination, and 2. I keep thinking that I have missed a ton of assignments and am failing the class.
I know that dream. - Big Joe Silence from Android
Do you have your shoes on? For some reason I'm always barefoot as I try to navigate those hallways - WarLord
I have my shoes. - Mary Carmen
Actually, that dream was my senior year. - Big Joe Silence from Android
I have those as well! Also: 3) I'm graduating from high school for the 3rd, 4th, 5th time because I kept going back to try to get better grades. I suddenly realise I'm a married mother of two hanging out with 17yo's and wearing a uniform but that's not weird. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Then there's the dream where I'm trying to text or call someone, and for some reason, I just CANNOT type in the right combination of characters/numbers. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Anxiety about the new boot camp experience and fear of failure? - Janet from FFHound!
No clue. But I have anxiety so it makes sense. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I have that dream all the time. That, and the one where I'm running away from people with guns through a factory while I'm protecting a baby. - Steven Perez
In my recurring dream, I'm not wearing trousers and I'm going around trying to find some trousers to put on before the people around me realize I'm not wearing any. - bentley
