Todays bedtime story was "Can you explain how hey google works?"
So we talked a little about what a computer is, and why I won't call it an asisstant but a speech-computer. It's a computer where the UI is speech.
We talked a little about the difference between local and cloud computing and how the little box we have isn't all that smart.
It's not helpful to let formfactor decide what is or isn't a computer.
My doughter is such a nerd, and she mostly gets it from me 🤓
I had two problems this weekend.
1. ) A giftcard that was about to expire, that I had said I would use for something unneccesary for me.
2. ) The only mouse we could find for Ebba that she liked the looks of, and I could motivate the price of, wasn't in stock.
The kind of backwards solution that worked for us is that I got the mouse I've been eyeing since it came out in September and Ebba got my old one. If she ends up using it a lot we know it's worth looking in to "her" mouse again later.
I'm thinking of trying to swap the battery on my old phone. Just for the learning experience and the fun of it. But I also think it could be a slight upgrade for Ebba if I puööed it off 🤔
It was a working phone, it just didn't work for very long. And I wasn't about to do my first repair on a daily driver.
Maybe some weekend soon 🤷♀️
This entire week have been full of teaching. I'm doing the same lecture every day this week for different people. It's entirely fun. But I've done almost nothing else at work 🤔 #work
In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
