"How on earth did anyone get the idea that people can communicate with one an­ other by letter! Of a distant person one can think, and of a person who is near one can catch hold-all else goes beyond human strength. Writing letters, however, means to denude oneself before the ghosts, something for which they greedily wait. Written kisses don't reach their destination, rather they are drunk on the way by the ghosts. It is on this ample nourishment that they multiply so enor­mously. Humanity senses this and fights against it and in order to eliminate as far as possible the ghostly element between people and to create natural communication, the peace of souls, it has invented the railway, the motorcar, the aeroplane. But it's no longer any good, these are evidently inventions made at the moment of crashing. The opposing side is so much calmer and stronger; after the postal ser­vice it has invented the telegraph, the telephone, the radiograph. The ghosts won't starve, but we will perish." - Kafka

"If you think that's depressing, consider this: almost every monologue consists of nothing but the words PLEASE AUTHENTICATE MY EXISTENCE, repeated over and over again, in disguise. There has never been a single tweet that couldn't be replaced with PLEASE AUTHENTICATE MY EXISTENCE. But then, it's hard to think of a single human utterance outside of Twitter that couldn't be replaced with PLEASE AUTHENTICATE MY EXISTENCE either. That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind, you say? Yeah, right. PLEASE AUTHENTICATE MY EXISTENCE."

"If you could zoom out beyond the moon, beyond time itself, and picture the entirety of humankind since its creation to its eventual end, and somethow witness it repeatedly pinging the phrase PLEASE AUTHENTICATE MY EXISTENCE back and forth between itself, we'd probably resemble a squirming galaxy of bees endlessly performing needy little waggle dances in front of each other, minus the useful pollen co-ordinates."

I've decided I'm over the Google Reader thing. its been dead for years, they failed to innovate with it  and this is sparking other people to fight for that measly RSS geek market. so its fostering innovation.  google has self driving cars and borg fashion accessories to make.

Shutting down google reader is truly stupid.  This kind of behavior is why so few people trust google plus. Its why I don't bother to use it.  No trust.

This Micro-Algae Lamp Absorbs 150-200 Times More CO2 than a Tree!

French biochemist Pierre Calleja has invented this impressive streetlight that is powered by algae which absorbs CO2 from the air. 

It takes out 1 ton (!) of CO2 per year. This is as much CO2 as as a tree absorbs on average during its entire life.
