Hi blog public, how y'all doing? Staying home and safe, I hope ... and so is this a weird time or what?
And so today I escaped for a bike ride, and read a bit, and ... blogged!
By far the best thing about the Coronavirus? The way ordinary people have responded. Everyone is nicer, more patient, more understating, more willing to help. It's a pleasure to be a human being right now, as we unite against this horrible pandemic.
By far the worst thing about the crisis? The US mainstream media response. Most seem absolutely determined to hit us over the head with their negative opinion of President Trump, regardless of the relevance. Whether you like him or hate him, you cannot condone this unprofessional behavior.
From Lab Soft News: Some Details about an Emerging Healthcare Service - Hospital-at-Home. Enabled by telehealth technology!
News I can use: the best smart bikes for Zwift. I'm going to get one ... just haven't decided yet which one. And by the way, Peleton is all very exciting, but they have a closed network; you can only ride Peleton courses and take Peleton classes and only on a Peleton bike. Zwift is wide open, and it's where all the pros are riding to keep in shape.
More news for me: Tour 5 National parks from home. Honestly put on your headphones, maximize your browser (F11), and enjoy. WOW. Kayak through icebergs!
Congratulations to Powerline on their 1 billionth pageview. Quite a few of those are mine... Onward!
SpaceX-ing out: successful deployment of 60 [more] Starlink satellites confirmed. When we're all working from home, we're all going to need high bandwidth and low latency.
21st century headlines: NASA fixes Mars lander by telling it to hit itself with a shovel. I love it.
Visual Capitalist: Mapped: every object in our Solar System. Awesome! - click to enbiggen amazingly. (Does not include all the Starlink satellites ... yet!)
So there's a new iPad Pro, and if you want you can see it on your own desk. I tried it and poof there it was. I love the way it figures out where the surface is, that's much more impressive than the actual VR somehow. Try it!
Waiting for Mandalorian Season 2 and finished rewatching Season 1? Okay then, here you can watch a combination trailer for Season 2 and making-of for Season 1.
