@Charles, Max....I don't mind heights and would go and stand on that boulder.  I might even throw myself off with a parachute,   But I would NOT walk across that rope!

I had to leave the chat early, but one thing caught my eye when I went back and read through it all:

"@Caleb: I kind of think the term IoT will just go away.

I wish ... but I disagree ... once a "meme" has taken hold and started breeding ... it's %^&^ difficult to stop"

 

Remember when "Office Automation" was the rage that was going to take over the world? Also, "Desktop Publishing"? I haven't heard either of those in a long time

 

It is difficult for labels like this to go away, but "IoT" is pretty awkward in my opinion. But, I don't have any suggested replacements to offer up.

@FlyByPC: "Max -- no time to explain. Reverse the Z-axis direction, and quickly!"


LOL ... And if I called my wife and said something equivalent, her immediate response would be "Why?" and I'd say "I said ther'e no time to explain!" and she woudl reply "Why not?" .... and so it would go until I hit the ground :-)

@junko: I must say the view of the cloud is Beautiful!

I agree -- this is a mind-blowing picture -- but I'm glad I'm not the person in it :-)

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
