- Beau Cronin is building a climate change sim game, called Earthers, based on real climate models. You can help build it!.
- @Astro_Kate7 is back from the International Space Station where she was the first person to sequence genes in space.
- A floating tour of the international space station. The first 5min are a must-watch.
Something that struck me in this video: how lived-in the halls of the space station are. Boxes of spare parts, mail, equipment are lashed to every available space. Simultaniously DIY and high-tech.
- Recording Coral Reef soundscapes with ROVs.
Cities are like compost heaps – just layers and layers of stuff. In cities, the past and the present and the future can all be totally adjacent.
– William Gibson
- Deep Drive uses GTA 5 to train self-driving cars.
- Enchanted Objects: thinking of IOT in terms of enchantments cast on everyday things. A good design lens for a future where everything is a little bit smart.
There is no Moore's Law for software.— Grady Booch (@Grady_Booch) October 31, 2016
Why isn’t there a Moore’s Law for software productivity? If our software abstractions were composable, one would expect exponential increases in leverage as larger building blocks are composed from small building blocks, which are composed from smaller building blocks…
Which reminds me of that famous Alan Kay talk where he compares computational complexity to biological complexity:
Ok, that’s it.
