In no particular order:
Roughly halfway through “Gravity’s Rainbow”, have rarely enjoyed a book this much.
Came across some of the best surreal art I have ever seen, in an art gallery in Maui, by Vladimir Kush (see a bunch of examples here, one of my favorites is above)
Saw “Words and Pictures” (because Juliette Binoche), split between good and meh.
(funny Youtube stuff) Stumbled on this olden goldie: two Chinese kids lip-synch to Backstreet Boys in their dorm (remember watching it way, way, way back)
Watched “The Prestige” again (because it never gets old, it might just be my favorite movie of all time)
I like soundtracks, and “Interstellar” was just … exceptional. Here’s something to sample if you’re interested
Saw a few videos of Zizek analyzing movies: absolutely brilliant and now I want to watch all the rest. For one that I particularly liked (and in fact, the first one I stumbled across by accident, see this one for “Solaris”).
… we want lots of cool products “in the cloud.” But the cloud isn’t an amorphous collection of billions of water droplets. The cloud is actually a finite and knowable number of large companies with access to or control over large pieces of the Internet. It’s Level 3 for fiber optic cables, Amazon for servers, Akamai for CDN, Facebook for their ad network, Google for Android and the search engine. It’s more of an oligopoly than a cloud.

- A program must be fast and concise, unless it conflicts with the first law.
- A program must be easy for the computer to understand, unless it conflicts with first two laws.
