Given enough time, even a business starts to collect some interesting stories. And Panic, Portland’s long-standing software company/video game publisher/hardware developer/who knows what, has been around for a long time. Our host, Christa Mrgan, takes a look at the strange, funny, interesting, and useless parts of Panic, through interviews, stories, and Cabel’s rambling asides. Now Panic lore can be shared by everyone, for better or worse.
Steve and Corey speak with Ted Chiang about his recent story collection "Exhalation" and his inaugural essay for the New York Times series, Op-Eds from the Future. Chiang has won Nebula and Hugo awards for his widely influential science fiction writing. His short story "Story of Your Life," was the basis of the film Arrival (2016). Their discussion explores the scientific and philosophical ideas in Ted’s work, including whether free will is possible, and implications of AI, neuroscience, and time travel. Ted explains why his skepticism about whether the US is truly a meritocracy leads him to believe that the government-funded genetic modification he envisages in his Op-Ed would not solve the problem of inequality.

Iodine is a very important element. You will suffer if you don’t have enough of it in your diet. Although some think it dangerous, iodine is actually essential to normal human life. Without enough of it you suffer, either a little or a lot.
It’s hard to get enough iodine in your diet, but it is essential to optimize thyroid function, and the function of numerous other glands. What is it and what does it do? Where does it come from and how much do you need?

The Scientific Problems GTD Solved, Ignored & Spawned with Francis Wade - Getting Things Done DC
A few times a year, we invite outside presenters to our Meetup, Getting Things Done DC (GTD DC). For May 2019, we have one of our regular contributors on my podcast, "ProductivityCast, the weekly show about all things personal productivity," (https://productivitycast.net) Francis Wade, 2Time Labs. —-
Productivity nuts around the world like to know that the approach they are using is backed up by scientific research. In the popular Getting Things Done (2001), David Allen offered few research clues to his recommendations, mentioning a few references in passing and citing no academic papers.
Since then, a number of findings have either come to light or been accepted which support the core of his ideas. However, there are a few which are unproven and some which appear to contradict recent conclusions.
Watch this session to confirm (or refute) your hunches, ready to benefit from empirical data which can help you become a more produce person who acts with a mind like water.

What Permaculture Isn’t, And Is – A Deeper Look Into Permaculture – Part 1 (PVP101) | Permaculture Voices.
No time at the moment to respond in depth to your comments and ideas at the moment. We do greatly appreciate your works and your intentions. A few quick thoughts: – Permaculture, in any permutation, has not become mainstream, or anything close enough to it to give Mark Twain pause. – Permanant agriculture. Why was the meaning of the name changed? Agriculture being not ‘factory farming’, but the production of food and fiber for human use. Without it, humans could (and did) thrive in a non-degraded environment, but as Allan Savory points out, ‘Without agriculture we can have nothing else – no universities, no museums…’ Just to pick out a couple positive aspects of ‘civilization’. – Whatever name one gives to something, others will come along and change the name and/or the meaning of that name. Only the esoteric retains clear definitions. Nor can one control what groups embrace something. Some have said they don’t care for the ‘hippy’ verison or approach to permaculture. But, hey, even what constitutes a ‘hippy’ is largely in the eye of the beholder, except perhaps for extremes. Paul Wheaton was startled to hear he was labeled as a hippy by many: long hair, non-conventional thinking, and speach, and attire, wanting to start a new-fangled version of a ‘commune’ in some remote location that grows a lot of their own food (currently in progress)… yup, that ticks most or all the boxes for many. And he thinks of himself as anything but, more a geek as a software designer, than a hippy. -Growing up in a family of engineers, with engineer friends, in a college town where the engineering school was the main thing going… ‘systems’ thinking was not ever on their radar. Not even for the electrical engineers. – Only in the last blink of an eye has engineering begun to ‘think outside the box’. ‘Systems thinking’ still does NOT consider the full context nor the full range of effects that could/will be caused by any particular action. – Holistic Management does. But the single most valuable aspect of HM planning is this rule: ALWAYS assume you are wrong. With highest regards- RLM
