I’m trying to cook the perfect steak, evenly pink throughout with a thin brown crust — and almost no grey in between. I think the way to get there is via sous vide: To poach a steak medium rare and then to sear on a tasty crust using a propane torch.
My experiments in sous vide starts with a prototype hot water bath in the workshop. I replaced a non-working thermostat in this piece of old lab equipment with the temperature controller for a tropical aquarium. More on the build in a later post, when I’ve worked out all the kinks and housed all the pieces safely.
Likely more symbolic than to have the outcome it pleads for I signed the White House petition to “Remove United States District Attorney Carmen Ortiz from office for overreach in the case of Aaron Swartz.”
If you would like to lean a little into the pain of Aaron’s persecution The New York Times article Internet Activist, a Creator of RSS, Is Dead at 26, Apparently a Suicide and Lawrence Lessig’s blog Prosecutor as bully are good places to start.
