More About Reality Simulation Theory

I think I wrote about Simulation Theory a while ago on here (oh yeah here it is, I forget what I said). Basically, it's the idea that maybe our whole world is a simulation,and it's been getting so much press for the last year or two. One thing I love about it is just...

What Eggs Like

Sometimes I remember I should be posting and I feel bad, but then I think about all the really terrible posts I don't tweet, and I feel better, responsible even. That's me, a good, responsible blogger, not posting a bunch of crap just to put in hours. Now however,...

New posts coming – I’m in a new business

I'm starting a new business, it's not totally internet. I'll be doing posts about it really soon. Maybe endless posts, I don't know - everyone always thinks they'll do that, but then they don't, but I do envision lots of posts. I'm gonna close that Patreon if I can...

The Most Expensive Mistakes When Starting a Blog

Sorry, this title is probably misleading or sounds clickbaity. I'm not trying to do a clickbait - I'm actually trying to save all my clickbait karma for when I need it. My plan is that this blog is going to be thousands of posts about uhh.. whatever the point of this...

US/Canada Import Place

I just remembered a sort of weird thing. For those who don't know, I'm in Canada. You can order almost any American item, and find most of them in stores too, but now and then you run into a brick wall. For various reasons (some dumb, some logical), you just can't get...

Patreon Update

So my Patreon campaign is going about about how I expected, not incredible, but it's early days. The way I figure it, if you're going to make it to 1 million patrons/month, you have to start at the very bottom. I was thinking of a few ideas to pump up the campaign,...

How I Back up My Personal Files

A friend of mine sent me a question about backing up personal files. She said this: What is the best way to buy long-term cloud storage that is private, secure, resistant to destruction? Archival storage for personal files... maybe 1TB total, more if it's affordable I...

What Actually Is Machine Learning?

Now that I've posted two things about going to the ML conference, I've had two people I know ask me about machine learning. For all the attention and press that the field has received, it seems that a lot of people still just don't quite understand what it is. I...

Steve Jobs

I just want to post something quickly. I've been working on some stuff for this blog, and I should have new content quite soon, but in the meantime, I want to talk about Steve Jobs. I don't think any blogger has ever done that. A lot of people know about Steve Jobs,...

Driving Confrontations

This is off subject, but I just wrote the title for this post, Driving Confrontations, and is it just me or does it sound like it could be the name of a prog-rock album? I'm picturing an album cover now with three cars that have been outfitted with space shuttle...

Instagram Spam-following Experiment

I've only mentioned this to a few people, but I've been doing an Instagram experiment for about a month. It involves my normal account, as well as a new fake account I created. I didn't come up with any really amazing insights or discoveries, and I wasn't sure what to...

I Have a Better Idea than Curing Death

So many scientists and dotcom billionaires are working on curing death. The idea is that death by old age is a terrible bug in humanity, and something that should be fixed immediately. Preferably before these guys die. I understand this. I know personally when I think...

Deer Family

I went to a conservation area two days ago, just for a walk, and I only took my new film camera (from this post). I've been to this area before, and it's kind of cool, but I didn't think it was that amazing. After walking around for about 45 minutes, I came around a...

Nikon F4

After writing the post about the designer Giorgetto Giugiaro, I did end up getting one of the cameras in the post. I did a bit of wheeling and dealing on Kijiji (which has killed Craigslist in Canada), and got a Nikon F4S from a nice guy who used to do wedding...

Human Consciousness

I've always wanted to figure out the whole deal with human consciousness, so, a while ago, I got a book about it. In the past week, I finally got around to reading it, and guess what: The author doesn't know what human consciousness is. I don't want to get too angry...
