Given the long weekend, Saturday and Sunday were atypical days. I took our dog, Quincy, in to the vet to have his foot rebandaged (post-surgery for removal of a growth). I met with a friend I haven't connected with in a long time. And Nanette and I had dinner last night with friends, a couple who is relatively new to the area.
I learned a few things. Here we go:
- Increasing the dose of antibiotics by 1/3 might stave off the inflamation and possible infection Quincy's dealing with
- Moore's law & Metcalfe's law - taken together - seem to outstrip our ability to understand and appreciate the pace of change (and the implications of that change)
- Moore's law: the number of transisotors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit has doubled approximately every two years. The trend has continued for more than half a century and is not expected to stop.
- A friend has undertaken a deep dive into Bob Dylan. He recommended Biograph. I love it.
- Another friend talked about net-neutrality policy issues and a move to create a Broadband Technology Advisory Group that screens issues before the FCC sees them
- Moving all my music/business book library from the second floor to my basement studio requires about 5X more time than I would have predicted.
