Link. He needed an editor.
Link. High on “moral outrage”. But there is no money in sobriety.
Link. Smart money bets no sterile neutrino. Smart money is boring.
Link. No rush
Link. Wow. That is so … boring.
Link. Hope 3D touch dies.
Link. A classic rant, but needs repeating every few years. My only explanation is that our business models reward waste.
Link. This is more important than you think.
Link. Can’t manage books from High Sierra.
Link. Reminds me of ancient imessage activation problem. It is worse in ios 12 on my test phone.
Link. This is a problem in healthcare now. I never pickup. 90% of my voice calls are scams.
Link. Watch the bets smart money makes. How do we bet on China to win?
We are not the 1%. Maybe the 4%? Relatively wealthy. Lots of degrees. Decades of education. Resources.
So we shouldn’t know much about life with government support. We have children with cognitive disadvantages though, so we do. They live in the government support world (in large part because, fairly soon, we will be dead).
Among the things we have learned:
- There is an immense amount of paperwork to complete — and it never ends.
- Critical paperwork constantly gets lost. Perhaps a 25% loss rate? This part surprises.
- Every time someone exploits a weakness a new rule is glued on, the system gets more brittle, and error rates rise.
- Nobody knows how it all works. There are numerous conflicting models of the system but they are all incomplete and inconsistent.
This has a lot in common with American health care (though the paper loss rate is worse). The root causes may be similar, we Americans seem to be unusually good at creating large scale dysfunctional systems.
Perhaps one of our Celestials will fund a research program into why we do so badly.
Link. The consequences are still unfolding.

Link. Immense profit goes to the ruthless.
Link. “The complete street perceives the street as a space where different transportation modes can coexist: not only cars, but also buses, and lanes for trams, bicycles and scooters” And pedestrians. It will be a hell of a fight.
Link. Apple has two inconsistent databases for managing device DRM.
Link. Interesting to see how this played out. Thanks to streaming RetinaLock is closer than ever.
Link. It’s not a fix for Apple’s 10 year Apple ID/DRM fiasco but it’s the hint of a beginning of a fix.
Link. I need to test this again in 2019. Doubt it’s fixed though. Very hard bug to describe.
Link. Apple should hire me.
Link. This is a big help for parents. Changing passcode used to require redoing restriction configuration.
Link. I’ll need a new case. Should it be one that mounts a lens?
Link. XR is good value for photographers, XS is an expensive lens addition. Not unthinkable though.
