Great article about the history of OpenStack.
If you want to live at the Rainbow Mansion, says one former resident, you have to want to change the world. That's an easy thing to say. But the Mansionites have already changed the world, bringing their communal ethos to the most important open source project of the decade: OpenStack, the Linux of cloud computing.

I bet you didn't think mice were such a thing today.
How about "CRISPR and mice"?

Working in support of U.S. Pacific Command’s humanitarian assistance program, USACE's Alaska District delivered the new Quang Nam Disaster Management Control Center in Tam Ky City, Vietnam earlier this month. The two-story facility is designed to provide a safe location for disaster management personnel to oversee relief efforts during typhoons and floods.

I can see 2 year old Ted Cruz in his little diaper saying "Daddy, I think that man on the radio doesn't like me. Daddy, what's an Okie?"
 
is it just me or does this — Cruz appeals to libertarian voters by saying taste in art should follow ideological imperatives. — sound more than a little Stalinist?

Home file server.
 
Gone are the days when we used to have one, shared 'family' PC. Also gone are the days when we used to carry USB drives to move data between devices. Now each of us works on multiple devices -- desktops, laptops, tablets, Chromebooks, smartphones, etc. And we want to be able to access data across all of these devices.

We can use cloud services to access such data, but there is much more data that we don't need (or want) to put in the cloud, including movies, TV-shows, music, pictures and documents. If you have guests and you want to show them recent family pictures there is no need to go grab your laptop. You can display them directly on your phone, tablet or even the TV. If you want to show them a home video of your son, you don't have to upload it to YouTube just to watch it again locally.

The answer is simple: set-up your own file server. And you don't have to spend a whole lot of money to do it. We are going to deploy the $35 Raspberry Pi 2 to do the job.

You should be someone who is well versed with Linux and is comfortable with command line.
Forget cloud, create your own $35 file share server at home with Raspberry Pi.

Gut wrenching science.
It's also an Oklahoma U story.
For those of you familiar with Hans Rosling's +Gapminder Foundation video series on the washing machine, this photo made me think of my own teenage years. The boat, not the sloth! The boat, the motor, the fishing pole. So in (my interpretation of) Gapminder terms, this woman lives in the 1960s. lololol
Find may be the result of a nonindustrialized diet

+Bob Calder​ from a quick browse of Wikipedia articles, it appears that most Treponema species are things one does not want to have -- like syphilis and yaws. So I can see where its absence in industrialized societies is generally a good thing.

Apparently there are potentially beneficial species, however, based on what's stated in the article. Biological complexity is a real problem. We do not seem to have good tools--or sufficient understanding, as yet--to make sure we don't eliminate beneficial species in our quest to eliminate those that cause disease.

When it comes to teaching programming in an academic setting, what is the best programming language for the job? Grace is an open source programming language specifically designed to meet the needs of teaching and learning programming in an educational setting.

Introduction
My follower count is accelerating such that I can't manage the number on my former  once a week schedule. I will add you if you engage with me on posts in an interesting or productive way.

I'm interested in Internet issues having to do with research on data sharing, social behavior, and science education.

I'm not the astronomer from Texas or the professor from Saskatchewan or the photographer or the guy from Aberdeen on the cooking show. Thank goodness!

I'm involved in research and teaching design, information architecture, usability, information theory, and the glue that we use to stick it together socially. Internet and Society. I frame it as a subset of Science and Society which fits into Section X at AAAS.

My back yard is terraced and planted with flowers and herbs so I don't have to mow. There are some drawbacks to this landscape maintenance theory - snakes. So far, black snakes and coral snakes.

Used the Pizza Hut website 12-8-12. It was easier to use than Papa Johns. Pick up any pizza for 10.00 was honored and came to 10.60 for a large 5 topping pizza. The gentleman at the cash register was courteous. The pizza was every bit as good as any and better than most. Notably, the crust was perfect. I used to go to Papa Johns. Not anymore, these guys give better value.

Great beer! Fun people. Be prepared for entering a warehouse - it's an adventure! Friday evenings Lucille's BBQ wagon parks at the door at 6PM. There is a tap room in the front that is air conditioned, but most locals hang out in the warehouse around the big bar where you can gaze longingly at the stainless steel fermenters. OK so I'm prejudiced, but you will enjoy making an adult field trip.
