Autonomous taxis could have a significant, positive impact on the environment. (Also, they're awesome.)
Imagine a fleet of driverless taxis roaming your city, ready to pick you up and take you to your destination at a moment’s notice. While this may seem fantastical, it may be only a matter of time before it becomes reality. And according to a new study from Berkeley Lab, such a system would both be cost-effective and greatly reduce per-mile emissions of greenhouse gases.

It somehow feels a little sad to me that a new study finds there may be far fewer galaxies than we thought.
There may be far fewer galaxies further out in the universe then might be expected, according to a new study led by MSU. The new research, appearing in the current issue of the Astrophysical Journal Letters, offers a theory that reduces the estimated number of the most distant galaxies by 10 to 100 times.

It's still too big to fathom. I don't think even a hundred orders of magnitude can make it feel too small. If anything we should be grateful that it would be easier to one day explore more of the cosmos!

Excerpts from my technology design treatise have been appearing on Fast Company. Here’s the entire thing (all 15,000 words) on Medium.

The trigger is local and they most definitely are mining it all. Google does this too.

Looks like Han Solo is getting his own narrative, Wolverine-style.

It would have between more interesting if they brought Han Solo to Star Trek.

This Stanford study on the mental health benefits of nature really reinforces what I recently wrote about in Fast Companyhttp://www.fastcodesign.com/3048132/why-tomorrows-best-digital-experiences-will-feel-analog
Study finds that walking in nature yields measurable mental benefits and may reduce risk of depression.

Five minutes after walking in, I was sitting on a Triumph Tiger Explorer, ready for a test ride. It's rare to find a dealership so accommodating. I ended up buying a BMW, and the experience was great. Professional and efficient. I'm certain I will buy from them again (maybe a Bonneville -- something classic to sit beside the R1200GS).
