"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.

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.
