First geologic map of Ganymede made with Voyager data. A drone that can sail around the world. Why is North up? Only 20 years to go before Climate Change destroys the world.
“To make matters worse, the more successful an open source project, the more large companies want to co-opt the code base. I experienced this first-hand as CEO at XenSource, where every major software and hardware company leveraged our code base with nearly zero revenue coming back to us. We had made the product so easy […]
A new app from Radiohead. Polyfauna. Lua. I love the one page complete syntax description. Towards Go 1.3. Interesting to see how the hello world size has increased over development. Bloat is hard to deal with. NaCl looks very interesting. So many memories spurred by just a Restart prompt or two. OS/2! Workbench!

A game looking to “drone source” the entire planet. It’s not about coding, it’s about solving problems. “Like Kickstarter, Indiegogo, RocketHub and other crowdfunding sites to emerge in recent years, Experiment.com allows individuals to donate to projects and receive a gift in return. Unlike those sites, which include art, film, dance, technology and other categories, […]
A new program for art supported by Google. I wonder if openFrameworks can be deployed via Compute Engine? “The real artists of today will not find favour with us, or with our institutions, maybe not even in their own lifetime, because their work is not for us. It is for our great grandchildren. That said, […]
“… the DARPA Open Catalog … contains a curated list of DARPA-sponsored software and peer-reviewed publications. DARPA sponsors fundamental and applied research in a variety of areas that may lead to experimental results and reusable technology designed to benefit multiple government domains. The DARPA Open Catalog organizes publicly releasable material from DARPA programs. DARPA has an open strategy […]
forgotify.com: “4 million songs on Spotify have never been played. Not even once. Let’s change that.” Aruduino + touchscreen = joy A mystery signal from a helicopter. A great technical detective story.
HeartSync looks like a very interesting interaction. I’m looking forward to some time with Spacebrew. Kind of holodeck.
Being a man. I think the scariest thing of all is that there isn’t an overarching world conspiracy, rather that no one is really in control. Rory Stewart agrees: “But in our situation we’re all powerless. I mean, we pretend we’re run by people. We’re not run by anybody. The secret of modern Britain is there is […]
