Thoughts on Artificial "Intelligence" and Cyborgs

By Chuck Posted: Nov. 14, 2019, 1:20 p.m.

It may be considered odd in this day and age, but I still like to read from paper. Books and magazines don't mesmerize the brain, and I feel like I get more cognitive bang for my buck when reading from them. Even if our screens aren't hypnotizing us, reading from paper reduc...

That will not be allowed to happen.

Wait a minute, Chuck, didn't you just sa...

On the Nature of Love and the Love of Nature

By Chuck Posted: Aug. 16, 2019, 4:52 p.m.

(Clever title, right?)

"Love" and "Nature" are both widely used words and, as such, betray the inadequacy of words. We use these words all the time. We see them in the media, in advertising. It seems to me that most of us don't even know what they mean, really.

I'll just st...

I really don't mean to be pedantic or anything like that. This is more for me. If someone else finds it useful, that's groovy, but that's not the point.

Here it is in text form. Feel free to share.

RIP, Gadget, Best Cat I Ever Knew

By Chuck Posted: Aug. 13, 2019, 1:44 p.m.

This is going to be a long one. It's not possible to do justice to how I'm feeling about saying goodbye to my old friend and 10-year family member, Gadget, the best cat I ever knew.

For one thing, I'm feeling conflicted about the way in which we did it. I'm against euthanasi...

Everything is perfect now. I have exactly the multimedia blogging platform I have always wanted. The only thing left to do is to add some great content, and the prospect of doing that excites me.

Tabling the Video Thing for Now

By Chuck Posted: April 18, 2019, 8 p.m.

My attention is focused on another more exciting project at the moment. The foray into the wild, wonderful world of video encoding, streaming, and hosting was most informative and will be useful like all knowledge, but my energy is better spent elsewhere at the moment.

I will...

Everything works out the way it must

By Chuck Posted: April 15, 2019, 8 p.m.

It has no choice. How could it work out any other way?

The question, then, becomes, "How must it work out?"

Well, destiny is death. It must work out that way. The taxes thing... pretty sure that was invented by a guy on Madison Ave (or more likely a girl on Madison Ave, and ...
