The day after (the New Hampshire primaries): wow, I can't believe Bernie Sanders actually beat Hillary Clinton (yay) and by 20 percentage points (double yay). And wow, I can't believe people are still supporting Donald Trump (boo), and Jeb Bush still has support too (double boo). Sort of a regression to the mean from Iowa, I guess. Next up is South Carolina...
Mark Suster: the resetting of the startup industry. "Much has changed in the past four months of the technology startup world and how outsiders value the business." Regression to the mean.
This you have to watch: impossibly strong winds stop professional cyclists cold. Yes the entire peloton comes to a standstill with riders falling off their bikes etc. Wow. I thought that only happened to me and my friends :)
From John at Desk: the customer is right (and wrong). "The customer is right about the experience today and wrong about what the experience will be tomorrow." I think that's right.
One year of Apple World Today! Congratulations to them. My advice, should they choose to take it, is to concentrate on features and analysis, and leave the news to big sites like Engadget. That's what makes John Gruber and MG Siegler worth reading.
Noted: Firewatch could be the prettiest mystery you play this year. It could be the only mystery I play, too, but "pretty" and "interesting" have me pretty interested. The trailer looks great.
Reviewed: Ark Royal, the first of a new science fiction series I've started to read, by Christopher Nuttall. So far I like it a lot, reminds me of the Hornblower series but moved from the oceans of the 1800s into space.
To be read: Free Bitcoin textbook from Princeton. "It's over 300 pages and is intended for people 'looking to truly understand how Bitcoin works at a technical level and have a basic familiarity with computer science and programming'." Huh, stay tuned.
So be it, New Hampshire is over, and we're on to the next. Onward!
