The Perils of Streaks - MacSparky Whenever an app has a streak option available I either remove it or break it right away. Trying to keep a streak overtime will make me anxious
It is both interesting and scary to imagine what would have happened had Steve Jobs backed down to the RIAA demands to disable Audio Hijack Pro. I am not sure podcasts would be what they are today if he had.
As I stood on my balcony this morning I noticed a few buds appearing on one of the trees. There is no green as of yet, but still a sign of the coming spring.
I was listening to Waveform Episode 161 yesterday and they were talking about the ability of AI to fix photos. Maybe I am in the minority but I don’t always want my photos to be fix, sometimes the mistake is what makes the photo special. Also the ability to erase items and people easily gives a false representation of reality.

What Makes Some People Liberals and Others Conservatives
This was an interesting Scientific American article on why some people are conservatives and others are liberals based on how they see the world. There is a survey that will let you know where your primal world beliefs fall compared to the average.

How to Grow a Conspiracy
Within a day of reading the 15 minutes Cities article about the latest conspiracy theory, that the government is trying to control our movements by preventing us from going more than 15 minutes away from home. I saw the following article City planners are questioning the point of parking garages and thought if someone believes in the first conspiracy I can see them saying, “See they are trying to take away where we can park our cars, next thing they will be taking away the cars themselves,” and so the conspiracy grows.
