Link. Obscure but useful.
I pick the scenic route from Madison WI to the Dells. Old highway 51. 20% slower, 1000% more interesting.
Google Maps lets me do that. And five minutes later it reroutes to a faster way. The freeway.
The AI maximizes utility. Once my preference counted, but now only speed matters. The human makes too many low utility choices.
So I add a waypoint. It seems to pin the right route. Once I hit the waypoint though the route flips again. It needed more waypoints to keep on track.
Finally, frustrated, the AI sulks, rerouting endlessly.
This is the future.
“The universe has created an observer and now, in an act of quantum measurement, the observer looks back and creates the universe.”

Something like this I think. But not a full Boltzmann brain. More like the origins of life on earth. A small fluctuation of quantum foam that does a local measure. The Planck unit of measurement, or pmeasure. That propagates, and in no-time at all we have a slice of universe. Bit like every stone block holds every sculpture.
Maybe explains Fermi Paradox?
Link. Also some legitimate sellers. Amazon’s counterfeit sales can be a weapon
Link. I had no idea. Accepting gay scouts caused Mormons to leave, now Boy Scouts want to go coed.
Link. “Come Thanksgiving, they most likely will still be here”. #MAGA Trumpkins.
Link. Wheeler channeling Einstein. One answer to the mystery of everything is that there isn’t anything.
Looking forward to real-time video avatarness on my 2024 TeleHealth doctoring. Hair from thin white to a hint of silver full, wrinkles gone, eyes wider and twinkly, chin advanced.
Link. I presume they mean white college educated women. That was the target group.
Link. Humans invade the Americas.
Link. We are obliged to read the stories of the dead.
Link. 2019 will be great
Link. Needs refresh.
Link. Apple incompetence.
Link. I doubt genetics are that simple, but do believe placebo response varies. None of this is news to physicians. Placebos common in VHA system.
Link. This is why I’m relieved, even satisfied. Also, Walker gone.
Link. It works.
Link. No sh*t. The dominant societal force of the past 60 years has been the weakening of patriarchy. Al Qaeda feared this too.
Link. Pro single core only 15% faster. 8 GB 256. Prices going up everywhere.
Link. I don’t recall ever knowing this.
Link. My iPhone 8 was a great choice. Still is.
Link. The best people I’m sure.
Link. My daughter has one. It’s big and heavy and Face ID doesn’t seem better than Touch.
Link. I spent my professional life trying to build a better EHR. Why we all failed is an untold story.
Link. Yikes. What an obscure problem. See post for workarounds.
Link. I love how he resurfaces and reorganizes old blog posts. There’s a lot to read here.
Link. WTF. Explains why some machines seem lemons and others are fine.
Link. They always seem silly to me. Like old ink-computing enthusiasts.
Link. Art will be fun to study as I age. I know so little.
Link. “Promising” wouldn’t justify a clinical trail for most meds. The MS benefit is only one that looks interesting.
Link. And some have a visceral dislike for #metoo. It’s not a logic thing.
Link. Fox effect spreads.
Link. “lived long enough for the world to pin your eyelids back and burn reality into your retina”
Link. I missed this blog somehow, it’s not new. Anyway, more signs of life. The big one will be image integration. And please, please, fix tags (tag maintenance is lousy)
Link. I missed this from June. Noted as a sign of continued Simplenote work.
Link. I never did buy the “vascular” model of migraine.
Link. Superb, and a long back catalog for me. I usually skip the first 5-10 minutes of chatting though.
Link. Arghh. Until I learn more I’ll let borderline risks slide.
Link. iCloud is overdue for some maintenance.
Link. A Fox-like island where negative words are not heard.
Link. This is a big failure on a key initiative.
Link. As a customer there is something to be said for a weaker Apple. They need me more.
Link. I’m in
Link. Five terms is a lot for a loon. Must be a scary district.
Link. Millenials aren’t young enough. You all can relax.
Link. Been a problem for decade. If true we have EU to thank.
