Similar programs have been slammed across multiple high schools across the country. This is in part because there have been cases of schools using keyloggers to violate expectations of privacy. More importantly, these programs often, rather than attempting to diffuse the situation, are designed to simply make the problem go away. It can be logistically easier to simply suspend a student, even if all they did was post a joke in bad taste.

I appreciate the reasoned, discussion-based approach to diffusing potential violence, based on publicly available data. As it’s presented here, this seems like a well thought out plan.

And yet there’s something about cops showing up on your front door with a screencap of your Facebook profile that’s really creepy. Maybe it’s that this type of program requires care, common sense and a tolerance for risk that is rare among bureaucratic types.

Handmade media controller based on the m0 trinket and a neopixel strip. Super hackable and does volume control and play/pause.

Almost forgot the food! dining cars have a limited menu, but what they have is really good.

After reflecting: Some of my favorite parts of traveling on the Southwest Chief (CHI to LAX, and back)
- Thunderstorm over the Kansas plains at night.
- The Mississippi river crossing.
- Trains crossing in the fog.
- Mountain passes on the CO/NM border.
- The Pecos Wilderness area in New Mexico.
- The Albuquerque water stop vendors.
- Sunrise over NV/CA.
- 6 days of being disconnected from the world with nothing but a laptop and a (virtual) stack of books.

I found this yesterday. If both Neil's can have impostor syndrome, then yeah, there aren't any grown-ups. 💙

They love-bomb us when we try to break away, piling on the free data or device upgrades, making us click through page after page of dark pattern, telling us no one understands us like they do, no one ...

@palinuro we will be publishing a shipping schedule in a few days :)

The culmination of a nice hike...

Also, I don’t think I have ever been at a planetarium show where the presenter got so into the role. Props for an awesome performance.
