Needed more in-depth details but the line "sure go ahead and mix a few special characters into your password if it makes you feel better" is pure gold and deserves a Pulitzer for this alone.

Amazon HQ2 ..... 2 years later

Just heard on @NY1 that 2 years later ....the Amazon HQ2 development site is still an empty abandoned lot. 

Good thing @AOC blocked it ....would be a real shame if we had high level white collar tax paying jobs in Queens.

History that pervades for decades

 Really interesting article in the WSJ today
https://www.wsj.com/articles/if-then-review-big-datas-baby-steps-11600439888?fbclid=IwAR2bkBhszL7bQmrz5P0ZfGaTOtmZM8jVVkxXapxYbfGE_WvXrG7q2gB1lrc



I love the idea of "forgotten knowledge' eg an entire industry does something in a certain way or format.....and no one knows the history of why or that they stand on the shoulders of giants.

I wonder how many Australian politicians are thinking about this and how we can use this to get Australia ahead globally eg how do you think Australian politicians/teachers would react to putting a camera into classrooms to monitor attention.
