In Denver @ GopherCon Machine learning workshop.

"Forget War and Peace—nothing could be as uninteresting as 99 percent of the stuff people post online. "

Lillian and I escaped the room.

Most tutorials for the top shot consist of two steps:

A proximate cause is an event immediately responsible for some outcome, as opposed to the root cause - the ultimate, "real" reason something happened.

To diagnose the real cause, you can use "5 Why's" method.

For example, a problem:
I got a speeding ticket.

- Why?
Was driving too fast. (Proximate cause)

- Why?
Was late for work.

- Why?
Woke up late.

- Why?
Went to sleep late.

- Why?
Watched Netflix whole night. (Root cause)

It looks like my social networking stuff is moving towards Keybase. @agocs Are you on?

I need to start coding up some more activitypub stuff.

One of my jobs is to type Google searches for my father and read him the results.

Talked with my buddy Chad about getting our podcast going again. Hope we can figure out schedules.
