Among other things I am testing these days there’s @producthunt. Most useful website I’ve seen in a long time. Too bad I can’t comment there
If you hear voices in your head, that’s bad. If you hear piano music in your head, that’s not so bad, particularly if you’re a professional pianist. Yet Gergely Bogányi still found it disturbing, because the sonorous quality of the music in his brain exceeded the sound a piano can actually pr…

You may remember neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis — he built the brain-controlled exoskeleton that allowed a paralyzed man to kick the first ball of the 2014 World Cup. What’s he working on now? Building ways for two minds (rats and monkeys, for now) to send messages brain to brain. Watch to the end…
Survey reveals a few interesting numbers about Apache Spark: http://t.co/4FEisLoxnq < Really skeptical about this. Unrealistic % for Azure
My hopes now lie in @Nilas upcoming email client: http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/27/next-gen-email-platform-nilas-previously-inbox-grabs-8-million-preps-its-own-email-client/ (I am highly skeptical, but let’s see)

Every developer knows how tough it can be to make a living on the App Store. There’s a lot of money being made there, but it’s not spread very evenly. Those at the top of the charts make the lion’s…
I funded the campaign. It won’t work, but if it works, I’ll start reconsidering my position about miracles.

Self-portraits of medieval book artisans are as exciting as they are rare. In the age before the modern camera there were limited means to show others what you looked like. In the very late medieva…
One of the most fascinating talk I have ever seen.
Deborah Gordon studies ant colonies in the Arizona desert to understand their complex social system. She asks: How do these chitinous creatures get down to business — and even multitask when they need to — with no language, memory or visible leadership? Her answers could lead to a better understan…
