Tale of 2015 blogging

I had a paragraph-length idea to blog, so I put it in three places.

  1. On the new blogging software I'm working on (private, sorry).

  2. On Facebook, as a post (a perfect fit).

  3. On Twitter as a tweetstorm using

The paragraph

Google just learned about movies in a new way. I went to see The Martian last friday. I guess they figured out what I was doing, from my location and the amount of time I stayed there, when it started and ended. They figured out I was at the movies, and that I went to see The Martian. So now they're making movie recommendations in Google Now that say "Because you saw The Martian..."

The response

What's realllly cool is that I got a response from the product lead at Google Now, clarifying. I responded on Twitter.

There's a bunch of extra work, but the result is gratifying. I learned something about the software I'm using from the person who develops it.
