Bad Defaults

It happens to the best of us. In development, everything has to land somewhere. There has to be default behavior where a user experience can be optimized. One example of default behavior is Google search results. The result is that you get the exact pages you want on the first page of Google’s results. I […]


Cambridge Analytica

I recently reviewed the video The Great Hack from Netflix. Upon looking to cite the link above as a source, I stumbled upon a top Google result (currently second only to the Netflix trailer page itself) called What Netflix’s ‘Great Hack’ Gets Wrong About Cambridge Analytica and subtitled: The British consulting firm didn’t steal the […]


Will Tesla Win?

Few (who don’t watch Now you Know or Hyperchange) are savvy enough to really understand what is at stake in terms of becoming the first to solve Level 5 Autonomy. Level 5 Autonomy is when the car can drive itself in any human drive-able condition. Why is Telsa going to win? Well for starters, they […]


Tesla Next Batch Algorithm

//If you are reading this, I suggest you skip it. You have been warned. At some point, Tesla will face the decision: [which car to make next?] Hardware specifics that exist tangibly including paint colour, # motors, performance, battery size, r/l hand drive etc. need to be built in batches. Tesla will want to minimize […]


Starlink could bridge Tesla Camera + AR/VR to Make Driving 30 cars from home a Reality

Tesla has made and kept many promises. Some they have not kept may be because puzzle pieces were missing. With the addition of Starlink satellites, high bandwidth becomes very achievable especially when they have no load on the system. You have a brand new high capacity network with no user traffic. If Starlink is going […]

What makes a better battery?

More juice Faster charging and discharging Longer lasting/more cycles Cheaper to produce/minimal human labour Faster to achieve high volume production Produceable in surplus Resources involved more abundant/cheaper/ more environmentally friendly/sustainable Less friction to achieve high volume production More stable/less likely to explode or catch fire More cold weather endurable/minimal cold soak Self healing if possible […]


Minimising Points of Failure

When it is right, it is right. Code behaves as intended when implemented correctly. One of the best courses to get closest to right as fast as possible is to minimise the points of failure. By focusing on reducing the number of things that can go wrong, you will inherently reduce how much testing is […]


Infinity website UX

So, I received this Infinity Facebook ad It immediately hit me up for my postal code. It doesn’t need to do that. The best a postal code can give you is a neighbourhood. And maybe because of me entering my old postal code from back when I lived in Mississauga, they will start to get […]
