You haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen a library with slides. Nothing beats education with a playground environment, and one dude came up with a way to mix the two: Put a slide smack dab in the middle of a goddamn library.
So, you’re into photography and film-making, but you don’t have Exxon’s budget. That’s OK, according to Blackmagic Design. They just made a camera that costs a little more than the beer budget for a party, but with very impressive capabilities, all within one very compact device.
I normally don’t write about the military, but this is awesome and could be used for defensive purposes. The US Navy has recently gotten involved in a project that, by 2014, will have solid-state lasers deployed aboard ships. The level of awesomeness here is not to be underestimated. This is Death Star-level stuff!
There are a lot of dumb-ass people in the world who don’t do their research but vote politicians that perfectly represent them into office. And that’s what the guv’ment counts on. They count on you not having enough time to read through all the shit they write. They count on you perpetuating their jobs because, well, “things weren’t so bad forme when he served a term.” Today, we’ll discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of Internet-related legislation and how … Continue reading
Not too long ago, I wrote about a printer that makes images using water droplets. It seems that someone has taken an opposing direction: Lucien Langton, a guy who has a lot of time on his hands, has created a printer that prints with fire.
Despite innovation being held back by policy, it always manages to happen anyway. A while back, the 3-D printer has allowed people to give the middle finger to gun control. Today, people are using 3-D printers to give the middle finger to mother nature.
Isn’t that just awesome? Now, instead of screaming at an ATM because you can’t get your money out, you get in a private chatroom with some girl or dude who calms you down and points out that the gun you just pulled out won’t really kill the person behind the screen.
I previously wrote about why SEO is bullshit, so I thought, “If no one shot me until now, I guess that’s a green light for me to write another ‘bullshit’ article I was planning.” Since you folks enjoyed it so much, I thought it would be appropriate to cover a broader topic: Fanboyism. Fanboyism is a theory, much like Communism, that stipulates that if you stick to something long enough, you’ll actually achieve something. Look how far that got us … Continue reading
I said it. Search engine optimization (SEO), a practice held up for many years as a great way to get your page on the top of Google’s search results is (mostly) a bullshit practice nowadays. Most people in the SEO field are as clueless about Google’s algorithm as psychics are about electromagnetism.
Internet service providers can be frustrating. Perhaps that’s why bricks were invented. Throwing them into the glass doors of ISP buildings can be quite fun. People often view ISPs as these companies that never want to improve or innovate; an oligopoly of firms that sit together discussing how they will screw their customers over while sipping coffee. I have something to say about that: If you think that superficially, then public education really did its job. It provided the frame … Continue reading
