I had a paragraph-length idea to blog, so I put it in three places.
On the new blogging software I'm working on (private, sorry).
On Facebook, as a post (a perfect fit).
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..."
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.
