Emotiv Insight
TIL this now exists. I haven't been following brain-computer interface (BCI) research since 2012, but it was in a state of total revolution then, if only in its infancy as a technology. And lo and behold, coming this summer... a true end-user product that really can connect your mind with a computer. Think of the gaming possibilities alone.

This is a nice, in depth article about the conflict that's been brewing in San Francisco between tech boom new-arrivals (such as myself) and the people who have been here longer--who hate it. Touches on the iconic Google Buses, the housing shortage and eye-watering rents, the evictions, the VC funding shift to SF, and the history of growth control and NIMBYism. Being a villain in this story has been an interesting experience.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostracism

This is a really interesting approach to getting the worst assholes out of political office...

In ancient Athens, once a year, they'd vote on the politician they thought most destructive to the democratic process. The chosen politician would then be "ostracized" -- banished from Athens for ten years.

If it were toned down to being banished from holding political office, I'd support a Constitutional amendment along these lines.

Help my friends John and Muse recover from a devastating fire at their home and workshop, the Doghouse.

Early this morning (9/15) a fire broke out at the Doghouse of Angela Sanders aka Muse and John Williams. Details are still emerging but they did suffer some serious injuries escaping form the 2nd floor windows and the dogs are being treated for smoke inhalation. They have lost EVERYTHING in the fire. They don't even have shoes. Founding members of Jerk Church, members of the Man Krew and more both have given so much to the Burning Man community over the years and were married just a week or so ago on the playa at the Jerk Church Cathedral. Please help them recover. Please donate generously.

WANTED: PROJECT WORKSPACE/STORAGE AREA

I'm looking for a place I can stage my gear for Burning Man prep and do a little project work with electronics and power tools. My stuff fits on a 5x8 trailer, which is where I'd probably keep it. Ideally I'd like a little space in a warehouse or workshop, but it can be indoor or outdoor as long as it's in or near San Francisco, a safe place to leave my stuff and relatively flat. I'm willing to pay for the use--and pay rent if I could also keep my things there going forward.

If you can help me or know someone else who can, please reply or message me. Thanks!

Vacation (or lack thereof) in America.
I just got back from an amazing vacation. I believe in working hard, but also in playing hard and experiencing the world. The devotion to relentless workaholism I've seen in numerous professional settings (both HR-enforced and self-inflicted) is unbalanced, short-sighted and counterproductive. Having another week or two off a year isn't going to negatively impact anyone's success, and no one should be treated like a slacker for it.

Ok, so Google retired Google Reader, and you liked it. Hopefully that caused no permanent emotional scars!

I doubt I'll use Google Keep--I'm a relatively happy Evernote user--but it looks like a promising product to me. Retiring an aged RSS reader doesn't seem like that good of a reason to nix it.
