Some speculations on what the NSA can do with all the data it is collecting.  Since it is such a large volume of information, is is useful?

Here is a "town hall" style meeting with Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux. If you're curious about the history of Linux, take a look.

Is there a STEM shortage?

I don't think so. And companies who claim they can't fill open STEM positions need to adjust their human resources hiring parameters filters and possibly compensation/benefits packages. Plenty of bright people with lots of STEM education and experience have trouble finding an appropriate job. These people may not enter a new job 100% prepared for the requirements of that particular job, but can quickly learn what's needed to make the transition and become valuable employees. Companies who don't want to invest in the time and training to get new hires up to speed should quit complaining about STEM worker shortages and think about boosting employee retention policies. End of rant.

Here is a video about product development of the Mozilla browers. It's interesting to hear their goals and where they are headed.

At the bottom of his blog post, he shows a few more cool looking images of the Venus transit. Take a look.

One of the true joys of my job is getting notes from people like photographer Alan Friedman, letting me know they've got something special. All of Alan's Sun shots are great, but this one of the Venus transit is just flippin' awesome (the full-res version will destroy your brain). And he made a truly cool video that you really just have to watch! Click the link above to see it and get an explanation.
