Making a filter pass after a great day. Today Aperio celebrated it's 10th birthday (10! how cool is that!) and we had a nice BBQ and speeches and a little performance from the Frozen Sextions, our house band (who are BTW really good).

I love this: TheScientist asks "are trees evolving to start fires?" Roll that around in your brain a little... you could see where it might be a good strategy. Evolution is smarter than you are :)
Awesome! Microsoft is posting seven lectures by Richard Feynman online. If you have never heard him speak, check these out; he is amazing.
ZooBorn of the day: a tiny Tapir. Whoa.
