    @doctorlinguist Is this a linguistic objection/criticism?

      @literary You will. It may take some time, but eventually you will find a job that is rewarding and with an organization that recognizes all that you bring to the table.

        @variablepulserate Yes, but I suspect that vehicle size is the sweet spot as far as energy consumption. The 11 bhp figure would rise for a larger car, with consequences for storage in the capacitors. Interesting nevertheless. Need an AsymCar on this.

          @literary Aw, nuts. So sorry. :-/ Did they offer any useful feedback? It's worth asking them what they think would make you a stronger candidate, for future reference.

            @variablepulserate Yes, this technology seems a better fit for a predominantly autonomous environment than today's human-driven one in which we "arm" ourselves to do maximal damage to other motorists by buying the biggest cars we can!

              @lechindianer Good to hear. I pointed someone to Krita just about a month ago who had no idea it existed. I'm very pleased to see continued progress with it (and inspired to get back to my own project…)

                @lechindianer Nice to see Krita's progress. Hope the Kickstarter is successful.

                  @variablepulserate Interesting. I started watching that episode last week but didn't have the time then. How is it in crash testing, though? Given the behemoths it must share the road with, that's a tough first move.

                    @clarkgoble Definitely true. Ultimately, I think agents are to be *interface* optimizations, allowing us to move from direct manipulation or imperative command to natural interaction, but it's a long road ahead. @johngordon @jws

                      @clarkgoble Well, like I said, Arment has the newer podcast with David Smith that keeps each episode to "under 30 minutes." There's also Clockwise [www.relay.fm]. I think many people are realizing that rambling interminableness isn't cute. @joanna @johngordon @jws

                        @cgiffard Very! I'm not much of a gamer, but when I first saw it I thought it was something I had to give a shot! That it actually progresses slowly unless you move makes it playable for guys like me who suck at FPSes :-P

                          @joanna Before ATP the three of them had a car-related podcast called Neutral. They'd always veer into tech topics in the aftershow, which is how ATP got its name: Accidental Tech Podcast created while recording a car podcast. @clarkgoble @johngordon @jws

                            @joanna Believe me, at one point (when I used to listen to ATP regularly), I had to ask myself what I was doing with my life. I think I listened for the first YEAR or more, because I listened to their previous podcast. @clarkgoble @johngordon @jws

                                @0xmf Well, I had closed (and opened, and closed) my laptop several times, while leaving the tab open. I could see the web socket simply being closed, eventually.

                                  THIS. >> @joanna: I'm mildly interested but that interest is capped at 30 minutes, max. << @clarkgoble When I wrote Better Podcasts, [oluseyi.info] I was lambasted and insulted by some, but now "short podcasts" are all the rage.

                                    @clarkgoble @johngordon @jws They go on for 3 hours???? Nope. I'm mildly interested but that interest is capped at 30 minutes, max.
