Scientists have created a device capable of generating the first-ever 'magnetic wormhole' in a laboratory. Researchers at the Autonomous University of Barcelona in Spain designed a spherical device capable of transferring a magnetic field from one point in space to another. The team was inspired by the theoretical work of Allan Greenleaf, a professor of mathematics at the University of Rochester in New York.

A few months ago, everyone was so excited that it was October 21st, 2015, and wondering where their hoverboards were.

Well, today it's January 8th, 2016. Where are my replicants?!


[Amusing side note: A few months ago, the Android team was hosting the company all-hands and talking about the new lineup of devices. I showed up to the meeting wearing a Tyrell Corp. "Nexus 6" shirt. Nobody noticed.]

Global heating and the dilemma of climate scientists - ABC
In private conversations, many climate scientists express far greater concern at the progression of global warming and its consequences than they do in public.

Sometimes people are angry. Sometimes sad. Sometimes they have police officers with them. But all of them are convinced their phones are in this Atlanta house.

"“Humans now effectively control the climate of the planet,” said Prof Andrew Watson, at the University of Exeter. “If only we were wise enough to be able to use that power responsibly. Unfortunately, I don’t think we’ve reached that level of wisdom yet.”"

In the early 1970s I had a Cousteau album into which I could affix stickers - heavy plastic-coated ones with full colour illustrations, peeled away from industrial-strength backings.  I collected these for months to complete the mini-encyclopedia of marine life.

I don't haver it anymore.  It was lost to the Brisbane flood in 2011.

You know who merchandised that stuff?

The Shell corporation.  I got the stickers with my father's petrol purchases.

Did Shell once have a collective soul?

Dad, husband, software architect, blogger, and more...
Introduction
I try to apply the "keep it simple" principle to all aspects of my life. But as I have found, it is KIS and not KISS, because there is nothing simple or stupid about keeping it simple - the second law of thermodynamics really does apply to you as an 'isolated system' :)

I am a software architect by trade (but not one with a coding focus), although my life by choice revolves around my two boys and wife.

Software geek/nerd by necessity.
