catalyst: 25

on Sat, 10/15/2016 - 12:53

Recorded live on 2016 Oct 10 at Dogglounge.com.

This was my 25th set at Dogglounge – at least counting from when I started playing a named, committed-time set on Sundays (and not counting the “guest” sets I did before I was invited to start playing regularly).

Thanks to Odogg for such a great station, and thanks to all the loungers who listen – and contribute to keep the station online.

Tracklist available either at Dogglounge or Mixcloud linked above.

Factors driving self-driving car adoption

on Tue, 10/11/2016 - 12:57

I have an informal wager running with a handful of people on the following question:

What year will cars that are autonomous-capable constitute over 50% of the cars sold in that model year?

I began this wager in 2015, and I said "within 7 years". Giving myself credit for the fact that 2016 model year cars start being sold in late 2015, I'm going to clarify my prediction to say that the 2023 model year is my target prediction.

I acknowledge this is optimistic. Here's a list of the beliefs that drive my prediction (which I may update from time to time on this blog post):

  1. Technology will

Recorded live on 2016 Sept 25 at Dogglounge Internet Radio.

I had spent the weekend on Cape Cod with friends, in a lovely home owned by another friend. The love of place and time we shared inspired me to play a beach-y set. There's also some real oldies in here, for all the oldies in our group. ;-)

catalyst: summer's end

Recorded live at dogglounge.com on 18 Sept 2016.

Outside the window of my in-home studio the leaves on the trees are starting to turn yellow and fall to the ground. I love summer, but fall in New England is a glorious time. The weather is awesome, the colors of the trees become incredible, and the feeling of holidays approaching is fun. So, seasons move on, and we must live with it. (Though none of this inspired my set – just the set name & artwork ;-)

Trackless either at Mixcloud or Dogglounge.

Recorded live at dogglounge.com on Sunday, 11 Sept 2016. (Tracklist shown there.)

September 11 is a difficult day for me. It is the anniversary day of my wife’s and my wedding, so it ought to be super-happy.

But it’s also is the anniversary of the tragedy that happened in NYC, when planes hit the World Trade Center, killing over 3,000 people. This evil gets remembered by society at large on this day, so it’s difficult for my wife and to feel like it is a wonderful anniversary day. (For many years, we left the USA during this date just to escape the press remembrances.)

So this day’s set
