Got up this morning determined to code something - a change to eyesFinder's upload API, if you must know - worked all day, and here it is 10:00 and haven't looked at a line yet. Oh well, some days are like that...
Have you ever had a time that always shows up on the clock? For me it is 9:39. Seems like every other time I look it is 9:39. My wireless technology post was of course at ... 9:39.
Wild: Gamestop as a fee-free, convenient banking institution. So ... are game preorders considered property or currency?
Neil deGrasse Tyson explains evolution. "Some claim evolution is just a theory, as if it were merely an opinion. The theory of evolution, like the theory of gravity, is a scientific fact. Evolution really happened." Excellent.
Scott "Dilbert" Adams: Guy changes civilization. A congressional candidate who checks his platform into github. Well that's transparency in plan, if not in deed.
Not sure what to make of Facebook's $2B acqusition of VR company Oculus yet. Seems like they must have more in mind than just an awesome gaming experience. (In the meantime, augmented reality gets a boost - along with the visual search technology that makes it possible.)
Meanwhile: the top 8 picks from Y-Combinator demo day. Hmmm. Voice Interface API, Matchmaker Assisted Dating, Synced Cross-Web and Mobile Notifications, Airline Compensation ... doesn't seem like anything interesting in there. At all.
Awesome: First astroid discovered sporting a ring system. That's an artist conception at left, but how cool would it be to actually be there? (Maybe we can do it via Oculus?)
And: Small world discovered beyond Pluto. The solar system is more and more interesting every day ... we need interplanetary space travel!
One more: Cassini points to hidden ocean on Saturn's icy moon [Enceladus]. To discover new worlds, to boldly go where no man has gone before...
