@ftrain roustabouts is good. Wintergreen reached its apex at the Garlic Festival in Mountainair.@ftrain our ambitions were more literary but who knows what may have happened had we not disbanded.@ftrain I did decide that one day. It was called the Wintergreen Society and we had a great run in New Mexico.@mpgroome I only watched that one but found it creepy because it's going to happen and that is *such* a great cautionary tale.I always forget not to make eye contact with TVs at airports. Always something despicably horrifying when you least expect it.Some 1st results from the new, higher-energy Large Hadron Collider: a lot going on & best is still to come http://t.co/v68qZtHnGQ

PS. It seems clear that this is the direction we're headed in and that Google would want to take us there.Remember the Black Mirror episode, "The Entire History of You?" Google wants to make that real: http://t.co/dpvNlMEIi9@wello and people got upset about Robocop?! http://t.co/Ba0LLgz3hw

@jason_pontin I miss the early Twitter days but don't find it inutile at all...still about where you direct attention, no? @jack@JamesVictore not because I don't like cute (I do). But because I'm focused and I know my focus would radically shift.@JamesVictore So cute! PS. That's why I don't have kids.What kids draw on the walls of the Imagination Room at Science House. #minecraft https://t.co/QLkg7CLcAJ@JamesVictore Do you have kids? Curious whether that perspective is the result of firsthand experience or observation.@AndrewCrow With a suggestion of some kind?

Thoreau in old age said "If I repent of anything, it is very likely to be my good behavior. What demon possessed me that I behaved so well?"

PS. Any AI that may want humans dead in the future won't learn from observing us how to protect human life. We've got some maturing to do.Observing how we act is probably the worst way to protect us from AI that wants us dead. @elonmusk http://t.co/i0KpgTgvor@doctorow bet that regime melted a few tonguesThanks to @roblanghammer, she only takes commands in Portuguese. http://t.co/LXhaMoBOKA"Well," said James, "apparently a robot killed a man in Germany."Life's work. https://t.co/S9atkHt3E8
