“If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don't bother trying to teach them. Instead, give them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.” ― Richard Buckminster Fuller

Nerdy but Good at it... my blog and my motto.
I actively search for:

People doing clever and cool things.
Artists showing off their latest
music that doesn't really fit in a genre.
Makers makin' stuff
Anything about 3d printing, 
Anything about tech shops, fablabs, and hackerspaces
Writers giving advice
Futurists making educated guesses, including singularity followers.
All things Nerdy, yet awesome

About 1 day ago When you look at these little bots comically falling over, kicking the ball, and waddling around... remember they are improving at a geometric rate... lasts years robocup entries were not as skillful as this years. Next years will be far more impressive.

I'll bet they will be better than me this decade, (granted, that's setting the bar low) and as good or better than the best humans in the next decade.

About 9 weeks ago A local 3d printer shop in Buenos Aires built this as a request from his mother, for around 200 bucks. Expect a LOT more of this sort of thing.

About 10 weeks ago A research team at Rice University created medical gel that can regrow bone tissue anywhere. Doctors can fill an area on the body with the gel and let the patient’s stem cells do the rest. http://engt.co/1g8DuQB
