it’s been a super busy year so far and i have had a little time to reflect recently

i did the research/experiments for two conference papers this year and wrote and submitted them in my spare time while working at an early stage startup

i am ready to retire

okay so regarding turnout i was incorrect—i was looking at this site last night:

results.enr.clarityelections.c

where the “ballots cast” label apparently meant “ballots counted as of recently”

turnout actually was way better than i said before

(thank you to all the people working very hard to get more people to vote and keep people engaged.)

(please though, if you can, don’t text me next year. please.)

i get it—1/3 of the voters in CO are independents and don’t like anybody telling them what they can’t do and don’t like the government having too much money.

turnout in left-leaning counties was ~15% and turnout in other counties was ~30%.

good job voters. really way to go.

colorado: okay got it yeah cool cool, tax payers’ bill of rights, y’all don’t like raising taxes cool cool

colorado: should we ACTUALLY RAISE TAXES to fund water projects?

voters: probably yeah

colorado: noted.

(i mean, good outcome on that one but 🙄)

voters (2012): TAX POT AND PUT IT TOWARDS SCHOOLS!!!

voters: ugh, i wish my kid could go to school 5 days a week and these roads are in terrible shape

colorado: should we keep taxes we already collect to fund schools and roads?

voters: HELL…no, refund it to me myself

always dress like you’re gonna do laundry tomorrow, i always say

last night i stepped onto a platform to flail and honk through a harmonica to try to curry the favor of two ladies

it did not work

they did not give the flower

Earlier this week, a paper from a project I’ve been working on was published on arXiv:

arxiv.org/abs/1909.09024

Thankful for the opportunity to work with Steve and hope the work is helpful to those trying to accurately assess the quality of distorted speech.

i weep for want of a place to put AIM status messages on New Internet

REY!

DON’T GO TO THE BJORKSIDE!

DON’T YOU DO IT!

Anyone know a good dev or two in Boulder? I'm looking to hire. Full stack preferred , GIS experience is a huge plus.

I don't want to cheer too early, but all the last runs got almost there (and did not end up in pot-space or some cloudy blob). This one is using AMSGrad which seems to be less prone than regular Adam to explode suddenly when it is already very close.

me: working from home gives me the opportunity to focus on tasks free from the the distractions of a noisy office!

brain:

TROUT

TROUT

LET IT ALL OUT

THESE ARE THE FISH I CAN DO WITHOUT

SALMON

I’M TALKING TO YOU

SALMON

me: cool never mind
