The fuel for furious hacking, when you been up since 3am fixing someone else’s code

Don’t be fooled by the “we care about privacy” smokescreen from Google and Facebook; they’re still leaving themselves with an all-access pass to your data to continue doing evil axios.com/what-apple-facebook-

wonder if this is why my massive Photos collection has barely uploaded anything, after two days? (or perhaps it’s the fact my Photos file is now ~500GB)

One of my “favorite things” at GT is the set of websites that you can only access from off campus via VPN (requiring you to manually enter a Duo 2FA code), but then require you to log in and do another round of Duo 2FA. “Hell of an over-engineer!”

Got spam from @georgiatech Athletics; I admit I’m finding the subject line “Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate” pretty tone def in our current world. Yes, I know it’s an old slogan about a childish “rivalry”, but it’s kinda pathetic that a university is frivolously encouraging “hate”.

I made the decision on the weekend (for various reasons) to pull most of my photos into Apple Photos. Photos is taking … a while. I may have miscalculated? 🙄

I’ve been working OT for the past few weeks, not really playing or watching Overwatch; just peeked at the app and caught the last few minutes of SFS beating VAN in the stage 2 playoffs … first loss for VAN! Wish I’d seen it, actually ….

Serious Webcam Upgrade

While I'm not a professional streamer, as a remote worker I spend a lot of time in video conferences. So I upgraded my "webcam" to a Canon Rebel SL3 (aka EOS 250D).

Looking for good people who have interesting things to say about AR/VR games and the web. “Asking for a friend”

Especially interested in ideas about the place of big sites (kongregate, itchio, etc)

Just released the 2nd update to our WebXR Viewer app this week; getting ready for a middle school class I'm going to teach on "Telling Stories using AR", starting this Friday! itunes.apple.com/us/app/webxr-

Upgraded son’s iPhone for his bday, his old SE has become my fav AR dev device. Weird. It’s more than fast enough to do WebXR/AR (using WebXR Viewer), and it’s nice and small

Weirder; it’s faster than the X series phones for this. Something is amis

See you in the Clyde Auditorium (remote, VR edition!) for the opening keynote! It’ll be 4am here in Atlanta, but I have coffee!

(Accessible through our Discord server at discord.gg/QGDUnNm )

That moment when you realize you left a Hubs tab open in one of the CHI channels, because someone starts talking to you over audio (!!) … ghosts in the machine!

(Also: hmm, I wonder if anyone was in the room when I was having “debugging challenges” yesterday… eeek)

We’re getting our Discord server set up with Hubs rooms for the 17 CHI livestreams, starting tomorrow!

I’ll be here watching the opening keynote, 4am EST. If you’re not at CHI, and want to hang out with others watching the streams, come join us.

A little home made lardons makes the Brussels sprouts taste better ….

Call for Mozilla Research Grants for 2019H1 are open! Detailed topics we’re interested in, and instructions for submitting, available at mozilla-research.forms.fm/mozi

Is my GT school faculty email list trying to tell me something?

(2/2) To support our social VR CHI video co-watching, I created a discord server, where we’ll find each other and organize (note: hubs can be accessed on desktop and mobile, you don’t need to use VR). If you’re interested, join discord.gg/pKeU5K9
