Recently on Twitter as @dffmonolith
Most of my writing these days is in 140-character chunks, and here are my most recent tweets.

- Cool: quantum teleportation over 7km distance: https://t.co/gkHFyTvI2c Just a short jump from 1 photon to a human, right? :) #BeamMeUp
- Interesting examination of when card-based interfaces can hinder users' ability to understand: https://t.co/3iwQ24hjEj

Help Us Look for Aliens!
Whether you believe in Benevolent Overlords or BEMs, it behooves us to find the aliens before they find us. You know they’re out there, and it would be a lot less disruptive to find their radio signals than it would be to welcome them in person. The SETI project has been searching for years, using hundreds of thousands of computers to process data from Arecibo using the BOINC distributed computing screensaver.
If you have some spare cycles, join my team: AstroScum — Team 747680. Our combined score is pretty good for only 3 people, but it’s tough to compete against those with access to server farms. Join my team and share the credit when we discover the first verifiable alien signals!
