A little unsolicited advice for those applying for web development positions.

Please stop listing your role from a bootcamp as "Software Engineer". Making it look like a job is not helping you out.

Haven’t built any robots in awhile, so I’m putting my new printer to use to build an Otto Humanoid wikifactory.com/+OttoDIY/human

Shipped a small utility: podcastfilter.com. It allows you to filter a podcast feed by matching terms in the episode descriptions and returns a new feed URL containing just those matched episodes.

Nvidia just replaced video codecs with a neural network.

I don't even wanna think about further implications like faked recordings, online impersonation or the impact on Hollywood productions.

Got social.robtarr.net up and running after a bit of work and help from @adam. Hoping that this can get me back into social media without all of the noise.

I also love owning this content!
