Tuesday S&T II
[I1] Is the age of the blog coming to an end?
[I2] How do we have a past and future when the Internet is forever?
[I3] Sounds legit.
[I4] I hate to say it, but I think Getty has a point here. If you want to see an image on a site, I don’t have a problem with site proprietors (who are spotting bandwidth and often created or paid for the image) saying that you need to load the page.
[I5] Freedom’s just another word for the second to last thing you have to lose.
[Sc1] One way to be able to make better guesses at the heritability of genes is to have lots of kids.
[Sc2] Daniel Sarewitz recounts how science got its mojo, lost it, and what it needs to do to save itself.
[Sc3] I’ve been pondering the role urban heat islands could play in theoretical inhabitation of really cold places, so I found this story quite interesting.
[Sc4] Teenagers are enemies of science.
[Sc5] The ultimate longitudinal study: The data of us.
[Sc6] A look at a fraudster’s sham science of food.
[Sm1] The Blackberry carries on. I don’t own one, but I like the idea of some business-oriented phone-maker out there.
[Sm2] Wait, other people don’t name their smartphones?! We have to for our mobile hotspots and bluetoothing, if nothing else.
[Sm3] I’m sure Apple will be fine as market-share isn’t their bag, but I should have known never to worry about Android’s fate because it has a model that’s much more conducive to Asia.
[Sm4] Apple repair centers keep accidentally calling 911.
[Sm5] A mobile phone network on the moon? Cool, I guess. Maybe we can get one in Madison County, Montana?
[Sm6] This gives a real full circle vibe.
[Te1] There is an itch to regulate 3D printers and the Internet of Things. That itch that comes at higher rates from those in the industry.
[Te2] Well, maybe it’s not such a bad thing if the AI doesn’t recognize you!
[Te3] Apple has apparently outsourced some of iCloud to Google.
[Te4] I’m really surprised that Dropbox is looking at going public, given that they have more competition than ever and are hemorrhaging service partnerships. I was momentarily skeptical of Spotify’s decision to go public, but I had no idea what share of the market they held.
[Te5] A look at towers in Beijing that measure pollution.
[Sp1] Black holes are bigger and growing faster than scientists expected.
[Sp2] But… but it can’t just go away!
[Sp3] What if Earth had rings? What kind could it have?
[Sp4] When it comes to space exploration, Africa doesn’t want to be left behind.
[Sp5] The space race is patriarchy, y’all.
