I'll read it.

This is pretty awesome: A picture of the original Star Trek model, along with the men who assembled it, taken in December, 1964.

The whole concept of a bit-mile just makes so much sense.  It will no longer be "cheaper" to send my traffic to San Jose to reach a web server that's five miles away just because it's 1 AS hop that way.

If I'm understanding it correctly [using L3 in my example, but the same should apply for a Google network]:
Before the interconnection agreement if my connection was on L3's network the data might have to travel (possibly significantly) further before reaching a L3 gateway and then be routed across the "general internet" (yes, yes. I know that likely isn't the correct technical term, but my networking knowledge is very, very shallow.) to get back to a web server that is geographically close to me and even "network close" if L3 had a closer gateway.

After the agreement, L3's routing tables will be updated so that they will use a Google gateway if it is "network closer" than one of their own. Thus making the network trip of the data shorter.

+Google+  I tried the "new Google+", and it really limited the content I was seeing, then when I was finished reading that, it didn't offer any more.  Simpler, yes. Faster, yes. Better, no.  I went back to the Classic version.  What I have always needed instead is a way to flag posts for future reading, if I found them interesting, but didn't have time to read them right away.  I prefer single column mode, but the posts are still kind of narrow.

Fantastic perspectives of our solar system, with Carl Sagan narrating. This needs a big screen for maximum appreciation.
 
Every few years, this epic-good short film gets rediscovered by the Web and re-viraled… as it should be, time and again. It is that good.  That beautiful and inspiring.

I hope so.
 
Trump and Sanders leading in New Hampshire. If ever there is a time for a real fiscal conservative, socially tolerant candidate to crash the two-party, it is NOW.

Mars needs women.
 
The team recently gave Glamour exclusive access to watch them train at Nasa's facilities in Houston as they prepare themselves for deep space travel.

224 years later, the words haven't changed, but if you read through them, you may realize that many of them are sadly eroded.  Grand juries work the opposite of the way they were intended, and the 14th amendment is scarcely respected by law enforcement or judges.  And I refer you to this parody, which reflects current attitudes toward the Bill of Rights.  http://jim.com/billparo.htm
 
Today is Bill of Rights Day. On March 4, 1789, the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified by the (former) 13 colonies & went into effect. States & individuals were concerned that the Constitution did not properly cover & protect a number of rights of individuals. The Constitution was signed by the original 13 states with the requirement, or understanding, that a Bill of Rights would be created, amending the new U.S. Constitution. On September 25, 1789, the First Congress of the U.S. proposed to the state legislatures 12 amendments to the Constitution. Ten of these amendments were added to the Constitution on December 15, 1791. On Bill of Rights Day, we hope you celebrate you American Citizenship & spend a few minutes reflecting upon the freedoms that you enjoy. These freedoms do not exist in many countries of the world.

How about dense wave division multiplexing Li-Fi? Can I patent that?

I foresee some really cool first person games for this. Add a Wii controller via Bluetooth and you've really got a decent gaming platform.
 
The $100 Samsung Gear VR Can Now Be Pre-Ordered

The second generation of the Samsung Gear will only cost $100 and can now be pre-ordered from Best Buy. This is the device that could make or break virtual reality.

I can drive to the Oaklawn Walgreen's, get my prescription filled, come back, and the cars in the drive thru at this location haven't moved.

This beach is free, and has a bit of gravel, so lake shoes or flip flops are a good idea. The water is shallow and the bottom is mostly sandy. There is a large grassy area for playing ball or flying a kite. There are some covered picnic tables with grills and free parking, albeit limited. The bathrooms near the gate have flush toilets and the grounds are well kept. I liked this place overall, and it's a great free place to hang out with the family, play, and cool off on a hot day. The wind surfers, kite surfers, paddle boat/board folks were having a lot of fun. The beach has few large rocks, so some people tied their boat up here for breaks between tubing sessions.
