Talking wireless alerts on WCCO

John Hines of WCCO-AM and I discussed the new Wireless Emergency Alerts, implemented by the federal government, which will warn smartphone owners about dangerous weather, AMBER alerts and even national emergencies, with the text-like notifications coming from the President himself or herself.

Julio's bookshelf: read

MacArthur at War
liked it
This sweeping account of Gen. Douglas MacArthur's Pacific exploits during World War II is heavy on the minutia but nonetheless thrilling. This isn't an adoring account, either, but a warts-and-all tale.
The Menopause Book
My wife pulled this out and jokingly asked me if I wanted to read it. Challenge accepted. I learned a lot.
The Wedding Heard ’Round the World: America’s First Gay Marriage
really liked it
Decades before Minnesota legalized same-sex marriage, the authors (who are a couple) pushed boundaries. A good read.
Armada
"The Last Starfighter" with a twist, this grabbed me more than the author's earlier, better-known "Ready Player One" (which I never finished).
Everything That Remains: A Memoir by the Minimalists
it was ok
I had a hard time getting through this disjointed narrative. It's in some ways a rehash of the authors' earlier minimalism manual. Not impressed (but I like their blog and podcast).
