Turing 25 Blog

My friend Kate Catlin put together this great blog a year or so ago where she asked a bunch of people the question "What would you tell your 25 year old self?"

I spent some more time reading through it tonight and really love the answers people came up with. Absolutely worth reading.

Spurious Correlations

Fun reminder that correlation does not imply causation.

Logical Persuasion

Just as you can not persuade logical thinkers with irrational rhetoric,
you can not persuade illogical thinkers with rational rhetoric.

It is sometimes easy to forget:

you can not persuade illogical thinkers with rational rhetoric.

Limerick Monday

I'm burned out because of technology today. Too much screen time. 

There once was a girl with a phone
Without it, she would feel all alone
On it all day every day
A fucked up price to pay
Sill on the phone, now a bitter old crone

I used female pronouns because the word crone rhymes with phone. The balance of tech and presence is a challenge that everyone faces.

Now time to read a book and let my mind wander.

Warm Day in Boulder

Today was a very warm day in Boulder. It was 50 degrees for most of the day and we still have about 5 inches of snow on the ground. I made full use of the warm weather and hiked all day.

I started off in the morning with Green Mountain Loop

And then went on a run (mostly walking tho :p) from Flagstaff to the top of Sanitas Valley Trail.

Made it back to the car just in time for sunset.

In total I went 10 miles and 4,000 ft up.
