So I wrote a bot this past week. It’s a twitter bot (@BloggingBot) & based on my 17 years blogging it makes sentences based on my words. It is surreal to see what it has generated. Because some of them sound like things I might have written. #markovchain #programming #twitterbot
San Diego is not supposed to have sea turtles and yet here one is. Climate change brings a shelled friend on a kayak tour with the excellent @everydaycalifornia in La Jolla. First time going out with them. Will definitely return.
Day 2 of #lightningnow learning about Kanban view inside @Salesforce + bonus t-shirt! Remain impressed by quality of Trailhead exercises for a novice like me. I also like that it’s kind of Shazam!/Mage/Captain Marvel.
[ KNOWLEDGE IS POWER ] Jefferson Building is covered in aphorisms, sayings, tile work, sculpture. It’s a temple to knowledge. My favorite aphorism so far is “there is no work of genius which has not been in the delight of man.” Lots of references to GOD but also ones like this: “there is one only good namely knowledge and one only evil namely ignorance.”
The imagery of the sacred heart, the suffering heart, the thorns, the flames, has always moved me, primally. I can blame and thank my latent Catholicism. I find it so beautiful. A perfect bittersweetness that represents life so well.
Christmastime at Fort Rosecrans. Bittersweet but undeniably beautiful to think of my grandparents Chief Joe Crawford and Jean Crawford who are interred here. So many wonderful memories of holiday times with them.
