Headlines from the future: "Sony releases never-before-seen comedy from early 21st century about pre-unification Korea."Ha. I was reading the Wired article about how it wasn't North Korea when a NY Times notification arrived to say it is. The world moves fast!@pmarca You have any security companies in your portfolio who could help @SonyPictures? Seems that'd be a better defense than rolling over..@VirginAmerica Kudos to "Kelly" at BOS who looked up my cell phone and *called me* when my upgrade became available. Awesome service! <3@SonyPictures cancels their debut, demonstrating (1) companies need to take security seriously and (2) hackers should keep hacking. Sadface.On the 3rd Business Day of Christmas, #BLAHAirlines gave @stanine, 3 decaf coffee cups. #5BizDaysofXmas http://t.co/M25TI7arst

Apple stopped selling in Russia. “We apologize to customers for any inconvenience.” Ha. “We don't serve you any more.” Pretty inconvenient!I cannot imagine the profound anger, sadness, and hopelessness of the *hundreds* of parents who lost their children in Peshawar today. Wow.@me1000 Products don't have feelings! They don't love you back! Even @davemorin has to admit that. ;)Don't celebrate your awesome product. Celebrate your awesome team.Acela train from Stamford to Boston: at least three dudes carrying bags of dirty laundry. To bring home to mammy. Merry Christmas, ma!

Academia has its own type of black swan successes in the form of young, ingenious professors. Case in point: http://t.co/t10bgudnNJ@airliners_net That appears to be an A319.If I were the governor of Kansas, I'd invade Missouri, take Kansas City, and rename it Missouri City, KS.

The human brain evolves a short-term "register" for what's stored in your computer's clipboard. Its ability to keep current is impressive.@chrismessina What is a "document scanning app" in 140 characters or less?What's the difference between "clouds and sun" (Saturday) and "intervals of clouds and sun" (Sunday) in the weather forecast??

Our tech advances so fast, and our space probes move so slowly, that the latency btw launch and arrival at a target is massive, technically.When NASA launched New Horizons on the way to Pluto in 2006, the best digital camera was 8MP. NH arrives in July ’15. http://t.co/wFKXhv644B@mattcutts @nwsbayarea What's the real surface area of one of those pixels?

Not really being negative. Just playful. I'm excited about 4K!@stevesi Good thing I watch TV from a distance of six inches! Otherwise I wouldn't be as excited. ;-)@maxcroser @pmarca I wonder what it said about a man in 1888 to be clean shaven! (And I wonder what the equivalent 5% behavior is today.)Magazines used to seem normal. Now they feel lavish and even wasteful to me.

On Sex and the City, Big was a character who permanently lived in the back seat of an Uber.Restaurant websites.Great to see the @WomenWhoCode crew at @Inkling tonight!Even well-intended tweets about the sensitivity of this topic are getting me into trouble on twitter. Damned if you do, damned if you don't!@jeevesmeister Maybe "PC" is the wrong term. I just think if you feel like *you* (female, black, gay) are "taboo," it's not very welcoming.@jeevesmeister Interesting. My take is just that well-intended people worry about offending people when talking specifics race/gender/etc.Political correctness suppresses uncomfortable conversations about diversity at work, which leads to less diversity. Kind of ironic.
