An interesting topic, though I would approach the problem from a completely different angle than what the author proposes...

Scary to think about what could happen if antibiotic medications no longer worked. Yet, it's a real possibility...

It's kinda ironic how Wal-mart, viewed by some as a symbol of slavish consumerism, also promotes a type of freedom by letting people park overnight in their parking lots (unless local laws prohibit it).

If you search on Google or Amazon for the word "vandwelling", you will soon realize that a lot has been written about the subject of living in cars, trucks and vans.

Very cool software. To create a 3D model from a photo is a real breakthrough!

This is actually a pretty good article, with some insights into how companies use ill-fitting tools (like email) for intra-company communication.

Where the enterprise social graph requires blasting a whole team with messages like “Hey, has anyone started working on this yet?”, we can just query the work graph and efficiently find out exactly who’s working on that task and how much progress they’ve made.

I'm guessing that the author will soon have a software product to sell to the corporate world, which will solve some of these problems. Sounds good...

Watch the exhaust manifold glow orange and yellow while this engine is run on a dynamometer. Crazy!

Big Diesel Power: 90,000 Horsepower ship engine. It gets 1,000 Miles Per Gallon per ton, that is. Better than anything I own...

"College is about the journey. So why are schools asking high school seniors to already be at the end of it?"

I like this quote, which I found on ContractorTalk.com:

"Minds of moderate caliber ordinarily condemn everything which is beyond their range."
