I think there are only two pictures of the Las Vegas killer that the news have been displaying. Both of them are somewhat out of focus and he looks a bit wasted. I’m surprised there are better pictures of him in the age we live in with camera phones and such.
One of the more touching stories I heard of the massacre was a woman running for cover but stopped to render aid to a victim. She knew there wasn’t going to be any hope for the victim, but didn’t want him to die alone.
When I first saw this article I thought it wasn’t going to be very substantive; however, I found it to be pretty insightful. It’s an interview with a conservative Christian author who didn’t vote for Trump but understands why many Christians did.
Sometimes I asked friends questions they may feel are odd. Stuff like, “How often do you call your parents?” Since mine are no longer living and I’m still relatively young, I wonder how often I would call my parents. In college, I always called home Sundays at 8:45 PM to catch up on things.
Google has an interesting new product, Google Clips. I think it’s one part neat and one part creepy, and at $249, very pricey. Here’s a WIRED article about it.
Google Clips is a camera, but it only has some of those parts. There’s no display. There’s a shutter button, but it’s completely optional to use. Instead, it takes pictures for you, using machine learning to recognize and learn faces and look for interesting moments to record.
Here’s how it works: you turn it on by twisting the lens, then you set it down and forget about it. Clips then watches everything it sees in its 130-degree field of view and records little seven-second moving images of stuff it finds interesting. It learns faces over time and tries to take more photos of those people and fewer photos of strangers. It can also recognize pets.
