True Detective Season 2 really was that bad. (Looks the entire series is finished.), stay off of the drugs. #thisisbeyondlame idea 'AI' can be a single unified layer on the phone OS reminds me a little of this. We have silos for a reason
Retweeted by LessienI'm taking the rest of the week off.
Retweeted by LessienHilarious response to "that guy 🙄"
#IAFT! read from @jasonfried.
I *cannot wait* to hear to uproar if the keyboard rumors are true. /via @markgurmanOLED bar makes adding new OS X functions simpler. Don’t need to ship new hardware to add a Siri button, for example.

Retweeted by LessienMinority Report justice (pre-crime prediction) is active in America. Did you know that? while I'm on the subject of criminal justice, worth watching Bryan Stevenson's incredible TED talk. to welcome an AI/ML led future? Read Propublica's article on racial bias found in crime prediction software.
Not a drill--anyone who has seen #GameofThrones and is up please slide into my DMs. I really need to talk this out.

Retweeted by LessienFor those enamored with “The Innovator’s Dilemma” philosophy, it’s worth reading Andy Grove’s “Only the Paranoid Survive.”Every company with moderately competent management fears being disrupted. It’s rare that companies are blindsided or asleep at the wheel. @matthewmspace @drbarnard Fall is tame by comparison to pre-WWDC.Every year at around this time, the doomsaying reaches a frenzy. Calm down…Amen. My liberal arts education was not job training. It taught me to think critically and problem solve creatively.
Retweeted by LessienFantastic opinion piece, especially for those intimidated by computer programming or who think it's not for them. Faust recommends reading 'To Write Better Code, Read Virginia Woolf'

Finally! "This is ridiculous. James Madison, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton — they all wrote under pseudonyms."
Retweeted by Lessien @justinfadams No, that's not what I mean. Laughing can be OK. I'm talking people with the giggles. It's awful.Ugh, giggly podcast hosts… @danielpunkass Berkshire Hathaway is patient money (unlike Icahn) but very few stocks in their portfolio are growth. Interesting for Apple.Icahn out. Buffett in.
@rickblauraya pun intended.That was an amazing episode of Game of Thrones. Dany’s scenes were lit.At this point if Daenerys Targaryen set foot in Washington DC she would somehow be the President by the end of the day. #GameofThrones

Retweeted by LessienHow long until Jimmy Iovine gets pushed into a purely emeritus role for Apple Music?Millions of people hate Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Both are winning. This has never happened before.
Retweeted by LessienChip cards in the US are terrible and ridiculously slow."The original Siri wasn’t supposed to be a clever AI chatbot… But nearly all of the partnerships were dissolved once Apple took over." #sighAnd… this is what the ex-Siri team is doing now.
