We have not been very good about coming to scout meetings.  Tonight we make a rare appearance.   Can’t get him engaged in anything anymore.  Maybe a teen thing?

Quick, nutritional dinner before class.  Day two of jet lag is always the worst.  Last thing I need is night classes right now

Predictability

Google knows what you search for.  Amazon knows what you like to buy.  Your cell phone logs your location (so do the photos you take and upload).

Philosophically, the argument against free will is the argument that you are only making choices based upon your personal experiences, the situation you are in, and your predisposition.  Of course you went to Applebee’s this week.  Given the choices available to you, that one fits your profile best.

As more and more of this information is shared on social media (and on collected on google, amazon, Netflix, your locational habits via cell and photo) and then compiled, sold and profiled, it might just be possible that an algorithm might know your destiny better than you do.

Thoughts?   If an entity really wanted to profile you… how accurate would it be?

Despite a little jet lag, I feel very good about the trip.  Broken showers, being trapped in the stairway, long flights and the disco Canadian.  Good times.  It’s difficult to have 7 people get along so well on vacation, we did wonderful.
