Walk NY Pride.

I walked through the sixth avenue, following the pride parade, with two ambient kids. I got a "Go Dad!" cheer from a tired group of paraders.

I picked up a pie of Joe's Pizza and walked home. An old man walking the opposite way said, "Hand over Joe's and we will call it a trade," as a way of negotiating a passage across a tight sidewalk spot on the west village. 

I am glad strangers in NY still find a  way to create moments. 

Some Uber Humor

Got into a Uber car, shiny and Prius.
Driver said, "Buckle up, it is the law."
Few minutes into the ride, honks and near-misses,
and I said,  "Also, a good idea."

Kearns in News

Morgan Stanley hires Michael Kearns as their AI expert and here is their announcement.

As an aside, financial institutions are/have been  dipping into the ML/AI pool. I am curious to see what the battle of the GAN armies from different finance players (for modeling risks, strategies, trading) produces as the eventual market.
