Fusion startups

Somehow I didn't know about one of the more impressive companies which is in Orange County. There are a whole bunch of new attempts at nuclear fusion. Perhaps the most impressive, or perhaps just the most secretive, is Tri Alpha Energy.

Southern California might start giving Silicon Valley a run for its money. SpaceX is by far the most exciting thing to happen in space research in my lifetime. Assuming they actually manage to produce reusable rockets, which it actually seems that they will, space colonization will finally be practical. If we also get nuclear fusion, we will finally be living in the future.

Iphone coding

The calflora people are tired of me complaining about bugs in their app. So I decided to see how difficult it would be for me to just learn to code on the app myself.

Step 1: buy a Mac.

Uh, never mind. I don't want to learn to code apps that bad. This explains a lot about why android has been gaining on Apple. It is a whole lot easier for most people to get started coding for an android device since they don't need to buy a mac.
