It's basically summer, guys. We're a week away from February which is a month away from March which is the magical month when spring officially starts. We're almost there. You can almost feel the non-freezing April showers and smell the May flowers.

But first, let's finish this Friday strong. Here at Gizmodo HQ, we've had a busy week gearing up for the Future Initiative. We've been reflecting upon the racist, utopian history of Oregon. We've been recovering from the news that Microsoft is actually doing something cool. It's been a good week.

So tell us what you're up to this weekend. Tell us how thrilled your are to buy your won holodeck glasses one day. Tell us about your vacation to Portland. Tell us about the future. Heck, tell us how excited you are about the warm weather—or how much you love cold weather. Let's talk about whatever.
