This occurred last night while driving to a friend's house with my wife.

Me: Oh, that is a bunch of Amazon Prime vans!

Wife: What is their group noun? A flock?

*thinks for a moment*

Me: No, an Optimus. An Optimus of Primes.

Wife: I hate you.

Oregon School Shooter, Kip Kinkel, is interviewed for the first time

This article is a long one, as I post it on the blog I'm only about a 1/4th of the way into it. So far it is a recounting of Kip's childhood, as far as I can tell it's almost entirely based on Kip's retelling of it and some corrolating notes or research by the author. The article touches on a number of topics, including mental health, prison reform, and gun control. I don't know enough to take any position as it relates to Kinkel, I only vaguely recall his shooting incident. Enjoying the read and getting a look inside his head, even if it has to be taken with a grain of salt since it's coming from him.

Paul Miller: Offline

Through a rabbit hole of looking at blogs, I came across a link to this archive of articles from 2012 on The Verge. Nearing 10 years old, it's an interesting look at one guy's attempt to live without the Internet for a year, back in the early days of smart phones. I'm about 1/3rd of the way into the archive and enjoying the reading.
