[Today’s run: 3.4 miles]

I spend a lot of time these days watching videos on youtube. Usually it is background for doing something else.

I like to watch car repair/restoration, wood working, factory processes, boat building, historical firearms, small engine repair, various stuff. And if I want to watch a movie I will check it out on youtube. I may decide I’ve seen enough and I don’t really need to watch the whole thing (like a clifbooks for movies).

The algorithms at youtube quickly adapt to whatever I’ve been watching recently and throw more of the same at me. If I watch a snippet of Iron Man 3 then suddenly I’m getting all sorts of Pacific Rim and Star Trek.

I’m sure their system has me down as a car rebuilding, gun toting, trekkie redneck.
