Cute article. I wonder how long it will be before the button doesn't get pushed...
So far, nearly 700,000 people have pushed the button.

It will be interesting to see companies implement this for their employees, given how employee engagement degrades over time, this might be the way to solve that particular problem, and a whole other set of problems along with it. 
 
"New lessons are emerging for executives striving to harness the power of social media in the cause of wider employee participation. Clearly, there’s more to success than just investing heavily in the latest Enterprise 2.0 technology platforms. Large-scale engagement of the workforce requires, first and foremost, a firm grasp of organizational culture and its social dynamics, a psychological understanding of what triggers new behavior, a determination by management to loosen if not relinquish its traditional top-down approach, and an ability to demonstrate how digital activities complement offline or other real-world events."

This looks nice. Given how prevalent chrome and android are, it could be that in a few years a lot of developers will embrace google as the easiest way to market their software far and wide while coding only once.
"App Runtime for Chrome" takes a big step toward making Android a universal binary.

if you probe deep enough you might find one of those in irs's head but because irs is just terrible at following orders it doesn't affect him that much :D

This commercial made me think about the guy that threw his hard disk drive contain some 70000 bitcoins to the trash.... Unlike the commercial with the happy end, that guy is still looking for his HDD.

A great article if you're a parent and don't know what to make of the technology your kids interact with.

It shows how little we still know when it comes to early childhood education (the first 4-5 years) and how it can impact the success a child will have after they are adults.

+Mol Antollare​ should appreciate it. Given how he hates seeing kids with tablets and smartphones.

Interesting article on cyanogen and their long term vision. It will be interesting to see if modular phones will change the market so much that there will be less talk about android vs other android based OS'es and more along the lines of hardware coupled with specific services.
A brazen startup has a very real shot AT busting up the world's smartphone duopoly.

Very nice article on longevity and the possibility of "curing death" driven by the billionaires in the tech industry...

It doesn't delve too deep into the moral question, but rather shows the general interest of certain individuals in finding a way to extend life, despite the questions looming on what would happen if everyone would have said life extension.

And quantum mechanics seems to work on the macro world also... At least on some level.

Oh yeah, just what I wanted to find. Google now suggested this site, and I am not disappointed...

Can't wait to test a few of these places.
Milan is full of restaurant but finding one that meets the two basic requirements: good and cheap, is not that simple. If you walk in the city centre, holding your city guide you're pretty hopeless and the chances of being ripped off for some basic meal you would find at your local Italian ...

+Horea Christian , what do you know/think about this?

This might mean that our memories might be encoded in more than our neural connections. Either way, this has been quite an interesting read for me.
After performing controversial memory experiments in the ‘50s and ‘60s, psychologist James V. McConnell’s reputation never recovered. His proposal — that memories could live on outside the brain —...

Nope. I was at work and whatever is in the article is all I have. But I guess the research should be available somewhere if you want to look deeper in the experiment and results.

absolutely great. they gave us a water bottle every day, you also could prepare tea and coffee for two in your room. best of all. I forgot my jacket and hoodie in the room, and I was able to retrieve it 4 days later when I realised my loss. the restaurant also has a buffet but you can order from their menu if you don't want the buffet.
