"The separation between science and human values is an illusion -- and actually quite a dangerous one."
Questions of good and evil, right and wrong are commonly thought unanswerable by science. But Sam Harris argues that science can — and should — be an authority on moral issues, shaping human values and setting out what constitutes a good life.

Crazy Stuff!
 
This is absolutely groundbreaking in my view and makes one wonder if DNA of the original life-forms on earth ever had a guiding hand somewhere in a galaxy far away.

Synthetic DNA advance is hailed http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-26768445

One off the best things I have ever watched. Invest four minutes!  This -- rather than anger and cynicism -- is what being human must be about... or else, why bother?

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/11/29/wanderers_video_of_our_future_in_space_exploration.html

Oh, also note: almost all of the places depicted here are real. Many of them extrapolated from photos taken already by our robot emissaries. “We” have already been to these wondrous spots. We are already titans!  On our way to unimaginable greatness.

(Though I will keep trying to imagine.)
Seriously, stop whatever you’re doing and WATCH THIS VIDEO. And yes, you very much want to make it full screen: Holy. WOW. This is one of the most wondrous and moving paeans to space exploration I have ever seen. The words of Sagan are magnificent, of course. And the effects...

Overstepping artifacts, by Musicians with Guns, is a way-cool video that illustrates another great riff on fractal space.  I'd love to use this as a basis for the ever-changing metal corals under the seas of Kithrup, in a Startide rising flick!

Chromecast is now open to developers

Starting today, the Google Cast Software Development Kit (SDK) is available for developers who want to build Chromecast support into their apps and websites. 

For the non-developers, that means even more of your favorite movies, TV shows and music will become available on Chromecast over time. Just be on the lookout for the cast button in your favorite apps and websites, and stay up to date about apps that work with Chromecast at chromecast.com/apps.
