Pluripotent LIAM Hack

by Mark Luffel

At Octane they were playing Animal Collective, all of the old baristas (Gavin / Josh / Ben) are either working different nights or have new jobs now.
Rob suggested the name “LIAM” for this hack, as an anagram of (AI + ML). He also said something about Oasis, but not because there were any British pop-rock stars in attendance.
