Little, intense lightning storm.

Oppressive heat in bedroom.

Wind. Trees. The sound of trucks and air conditioners.

The quiet of 0430.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is insufficiently documented

imagine if my brain let me turn all the cool and viable ideas i have into shareable projects

The most common question raised by Galactic Federation students of uncontacted sophonts is "Why did they do that?" and it is almost always asked about Earth Humans.
The common answer is "To show the impossible is possible".
The follow-up question "So is it?" has no firm answer.

Very excited about showing off two robotic vision demos at AUTOMATE 2022, this June 6-9, at Huntington Place in Detroit, MI.

We will be booth 3100, right inside the gate.

Not only have I had a lot of fun hyperfocusing on these, I got paid to do it!

A new fictional work at -- Things That Make Things: "...This is the beginning of a new era for mankind. The era of man's cosmic existence..."
The voice cuts off as I put Lavernge into park and turn her ignition off. A massive building, covered in blue glass and white steel, looms over us as I get out of my yellow car. I immediately wrinkle

Occasionally, you'll see someone argue that a topic is too important to "censor" behind a content warning.

The purpose of CWs is not to prevent people from seeing the warned-about content, but rather to prepare them to see it. That's especially necessary in a forum where posts come through in a steady stream, with barely any transition from one thought to the next. It helps people fight numbness, keep from feeling overwhelmed, and ultimately maintain their engagement with important issues.
