You Can't Achieve Equality by Expecting Everyone to be the Same
You Can't Achieve Equality by Expecting Everyone to be the Same
"Speaking up or talking about hard issues like racial bias or diversity, or calling for attentiton to inherent problems, makes it possible I'll misspeak and say something quotable where I don't want it. It's instead much easier to sit quiet and let other people fight their battles - to watch big conflicts and flareups remotely, trivializing someone else's experience, as something that's not happening here. But even in the 'burbs, and in our corporate offices, there are issues. We may not see unarmed men shot 12 times and killed in our hallways, but there are opportunities to bring down or build up our peers daily, and most of us aren't doing much to aid their quiet struggles." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
Great article. (Also, love that second pic of Erica.) - Stephen Mack

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
Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Louis Gray

Using cherry picked religious verses to show how ridiculous another cherry picked religious verse fueled argument is can be fun but it's mostly just saddening.

I propose a new scale. The Showering Scoble Adoption Curve. It's a curve between the awareness/adoption of the general populous and people who would wear Google Glass in the shower. When talking about adoption of a new piece of tech, sit yourself on the curve appropriately.

Dropbox is insane. This policy is nuts: "Question: Will joining someone else's shared folder use my quota?" [Dropbox Help] - https://www.dropbox.com/help...
Dropbox is insane. This policy is nuts: "Question: Will joining someone else's shared folder use my quota?" [Dropbox Help]
Answer: "The size of a shared folder will be counted against the quota of every member of that folder, unless everyone is a member of the same Dropbox for Business account. For Business accounts, the size of the shared folder will be counted against the team's shared quota only once. For all other users, your Dropbox storage quota is calculated by adding up the total amount of data in your Dropbox folder, including all shared folders. As a result, the owner of a Dropbox Basic 18 GB (2 GB + bonus storage earned through referrals) account will not be able to collaborate on a shared folder larger than 18 GB. One reason this policy exists is to prevent people from giving themselves unlimited space by stacking Basic accounts with shared folders." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
My camp is trying to share photos from Burning Man. We started out on Flickr, but Flickr requires everyone have a Yahoo e-mail, and some people resisted. So we gave Dropbox a try. Now everyone who joins the shared folder is out of quota. - Stephen Mack
I guess we'll try Google Drive or Shutterfly next. - Stephen Mack
If people don't want full rez, just upload to G+ and you'll get 2k resolution unlimited photos for free. - Steve and 4 other people
the dropbox thing is baffling. what a strange solution to "we don't want people to be cheap". - Jenica
Steve: G+ might work, although if people didn't want to create a Yahoo account, not sure how they'll feel about G+ accounts. - Stephen Mack
Jenica: I know! It seems completely nuts to me. - Stephen Mack
I think G+ has the same problem as Google Drive right? Do you have a non-google e-mail address I can try to share a GDrive folder with? - Steve and 4 other people
Sure, you could use my @tivo.com address - Stephen Mack
Done. Do you want to share a folder? - Steve and 4 other people
Got it! Thanks, Steve. (Curious: Why do those files have such bizarre filenames?) - Stephen Mack
So what I ended up doing since half of us are on Dropbox already is to use "links" instead of "shares" -- I have one shared folder for uploads, which I then move into the "linked" folder. Still pretty lame. - Stephen Mack
Yup, I have this same problem with Dropbox. We have a license to a bunch of tutorial videos for WordPress, and the creator shares the new versions with us through Dropbox. Each time he shares the updated videos, it blows right through my Dropbox quota, and I have to remove everything else in order to accept the sharing invitation. Then, it gets a little dicey, because I'm never sure if... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Those filenames are just what Amazon MP3 generated, unfortunately. :( - Steve and 4 other people

louisgray.com: Our Smartphones Have Surpassed Their Role as Computers In Our Pockets
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

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

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

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

Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Overhearing ladies complaining about their sleep troubles with their respective husbands. I'm like, "I'm glad I'm not married anymore." 😜
I told my husband the other day that when we move, we're getting separate rooms. My dad & his wife and most of my aunts and uncles have separate rooms. I used to think it was weird, but now I understand it's to stop murder. - Anika
^Yes! Sometimes you just want to stretch all over the bed. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
The bitching from my buddies when we shared a room told me all I need to know about what my wife puts up with. - Eric - Regulate
Paging Louis Gray...Louis Gray, please pick up a white courtesy phone... - Corinne L
We now have separate rooms after my boyfriend's arm dropped on my head in his sleep and he gave me a black eye. He was mortified and decided he'd rather sleep on the futon than beat me in his sleep. I cannot tell you how much better I sleep now that he's in another room... (because of his snoring, mostly - he really doesn't regularly beat me in his sleep!) - WebGoddess
I used to not sleep at the same time as my hubby (because he's a human straight jacket, fresh from a dryer, that sounds like a freight train), but then discovered that my sofa is more comfortable than my bed. So, I have been sleeping there for about the last 10 years. http://www.thisendup.com/item... - April Russo

Utah’s Mia Love to Become First-Ever Black Female Republican in Congress [Slate]

If you're excited about working on 20% projects, you need a new job.

You should quit and work on it full time. - Heisenberg

Confession: I really don't like Python (or Ruby). I must be the only one.
You aren't. - Louis Gray
It's not the usual complaint either. It's not that I want a lower level language. It's not even so much the significant whitespace, although I don't like that much. - Heisenberg
It's that I just don't like the syntax. - Heisenberg
It is suppose to be better, because it doesn't have the "complexity" of the C syntax. I think it is worse because of that. - Heisenberg
My preference is for languages that use the consistency and familiarity of C syntax. Some examples are JavaScript, Golang, and Swift. It's not that I want to share code between the browser, web server, API server, web crawler, and machine learning components. It's that I don't want to context switch on the syntax differences. - Heisenberg
I don't find using __CRAP__ particularly easy to read. I don't like : as an arbitrary difference in statement syntax. - Heisenberg
And the process for the language evolution sucks. It's not just the lack of the switch statement, but the arguments against why it's necessary, and the convoluted 'solutions' for doing what a switch statement does. It's hard to construct and hard to read. - Heisenberg
The explicit 'self' variable bothers me. Even lower languages like C++ don't seem as hacky in their object-oriented language implementation. - Heisenberg
The lack of uniformity in the importing mechanism syntax. The need to use 'reload' instead of 'import' the 2nd time around. 'from module import' vs 'import module'. - Heisenberg
Using 'True' and 'False', instead of 'true' and 'false'. Just arbitrary differences for no particular reason. - Heisenberg
I've never had a problem reading curly braces, parenthesis, or semicolons. I don't find the code more complicated to read because of them. What I DO find more complicated is having to remember using them or not using them when switching between using JavaScript or C, and Python. - Heisenberg
Using 'and', 'or', and 'not' for logical operators rather than C operators ('||', '&&', and '!'). Is it easier to read for a novice programmer? Sure. So is Pascal. That doesn't mean I want to program in it. - Heisenberg
I hate the Egg thing. It's just weird. There's always some egg thingies buried deep in the bowels of a Python web project. Compared to a logical organization like 'npm', it just bites. - Heisenberg
I don't like Monty Python. I think it's corny, dorky, and tired. I'd rather have a language based on Red Dwarf. - Heisenberg
:) - Heisenberg
P.S. I didn't bother going into all the things I don't like about Ruby. Maybe I'll save that for another post that no one will read. - Heisenberg
We're talking about exotic dancers, right? - Todd Hoff
Yes. Ugly ones. - Heisenberg

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

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

Are you feeling ethical now? - Spidra Webster
what the heck is this for? - Jonathan Disher
I feel so ethical now! This is because I'm on the Historical and Landmarks Commission for the City of Santa Clara. State law AB-1234 requires that I complete 2 hours of ethics training every two years. The city holds a group training session every two years but I missed it last month so I had to do the online version offered by the state.

I wasn't sandbagging! I was just in 8 hours solid of meetings during the day, then was focused on the kids until 10:30 (my daughter was having a tough time getting to sleep). I didn't start running until 10:30 -- if I had started running/walking at 9, I'd have beat you. :) - Stephen Mack
