Call Ahead
I hate making phone calls, so I made a service to do it for me. Is a restaurant open? Does a store carry something in stock? Just text us, and one of our VAs will call for you.

I trained an A.I. to Ask Metafilter...
Last time, I trained an LSTM neural network to generate British placenames. This time, I trained one on Ask Metafilter questions to see if the questions it generated might tell us anything about humanity. (Spoilers: yes, of course it did).

Art by Josh Millard
I've been painting a lot lately, exploring in particular mathematical themes and especially variations on the Menger sponge. I'm proud of the progress I've made, and have built a simple site to show off my finished work: Art by Josh Millard.

I've also been writing about art process stuff on my blog, e.g. a step-by-step document of the execution of yesterday's new painting, Five Concentric Wireframe Cubes.

I mentioned this idea in a politics thread and decided to throw it together. This replaces "falsehood(s)" with "bullshit" on any web page. As a bonus, it replaces "false" with "full-of-shit." It makes the news a bit more readable. Screenshot

Is the Future Already Set?
We think the past is immutable and the future is yet to be written. But is that an illusion? Einstein's special relativity suggests that it is, as I explain in this short animated video produced in collaboration with BBC Earth.

Two Asians talk about all of this shit.
Race Invaders is a podcast hosted by myself and my friend Tim Yang, in which we discuss social justice, politics, culture, and probably more geek shit than is necessary, but we like it.

After having read enough articles about exasperation about there being just too much stuff in JavaScript, I decided to write one as well – about my trip to the grocery store!

A long post about three months' worth of mass shootings
I wrote up a list of all the mass shootings that had happened in January, February and March of this year, and posted it to Facebook. Each event had a brief write-up from whatever news source I could find. Following the list are a bunch of words about the results of posting the list to Facebook, trends noticed, and a brief bit about what it's like, emotionally, to actually compile that list.
