2018 Spring March 26 Monday

65 degrees this morning, walk 35.28 minutes

65 degrees, but a strong wind made it seem much colder. When I was protected by the wind, it felt to to be warmer, but the wind made it feel a lot colder in unprotected areas.

Pace was 30 seconds slower than my goal, even though today I consciously tried to walk faster at times. Either I filled miserably or it would have been a lot worse if I hadn’t tried. Usually my time is much worse in the wind.

Anytime I think about technology talking over the world, spellcheck lessens my anxiety.

Yesterday, somehow spellcheck made “meat” into “meeting”. I know I wouldn’t write “meeting” in that context so it to be a grievous error by spellcheck.

You could argue that I should have caught such a major error and I probably should have, but spellcheck shouldn’t have made it in the first place.

I really wonder how they are ever going to make self-driving cars that will meet the standards of being able to be “self-driving”.

I don’t have too much doubt that they will make adequate self-driving highway vehicles, but I wonder about the current technology being adequate for urban driving or in high traffic areas.

Another example is in the “Formula 1” race this weekend. An algorithm apparently went awry and person who should have won the race came in second because of the error. the error may have been human error, but a true algorithm would have corrected the error!

It is amazing to me that an algorithm would be in the position to cause the leader to make an error and come in second! The limits of technology I guess!

I have been having a lot of vivid dreams lately, but haven’t been good about recording them. This is one I recorded:

Saturday March 24, 2018

Very intensive dream I was on a tour, apparently a bus tour.

We stopped in a small town (not sure why). I saw a store that was closed since it “hadn’t gotten a permit “.

I remember jumping over a water puddle thinking I may as well see the town since I’d probably never see it again.

In general, I think it was a town in Arizona or Nevada or something like that. I didn’t actually see any local residents that I remember, just persons on the tour. it seemed like a very old, small and poor town.

Seemed to be a fairly small bus, kind of like a van.

Startlingly realistic in the sense it seemed real.

A lot of detail which I have already forgotten.

My meatless eating pattern continues. It will continue, at least for today

That’s it for now, Monday, March 26, 2018.
