I'm a huge fan of third wave psychology (I sometimes wish I'd persued it as a career), but this article presents a critique of the recent upsurge of "mindfulness" and assumptions it makes.
Dear Internet, do you know the interior dimensions of typical minivans as they are in the US (Chrysler Pacifica, Dodge Caravan, Toyota Sianna, Kia Carnival ...). It is mainly about the clear height and width of the rear sliding doors or the tailgate. In addition, it would be good to know on which models you can simply take out the back seat. I would like to know if I can get into the vehicle with my wheelchair (via a ramp). Thanks for any info and also for sharing!
As always thanks to cryptome's job we can feed our paranoid side.
The fantastic Prof Elaine Chew is now at Ircam and looking for a PhD student, post-doc and engineer to join her COSMOS project. It will use data + citizen science to study musical structures created in music and unusual sources like cardiac arrhythmias. http://cosmos.ircam.fr/?cat=139
Personal data protection and free software: what about git commit history? If someone asks for removal of his/her name and email address, do we have to comply? Or can the exception of "legitimate interest" apply? After all, quality and security of code requires an audit trail.
(Similar issue with blockchains, of course.)

@tsturm @globalc A famous one from my line of work was this: “when it rains on Wednesday’s, the CRM is slow.” True story! The explanation was that the database was rebooted every night and if it rained on Wednesday, somebody had to drive their kid to kindergarten and thus wasn’t the first person in the office, didn’t start the report they usually did, thus not storing the good execution plan in memory for the rest of the day. From then on, the CRM was slow. 🙈
