Absolutely remarkable story of a man who fell overboard at night in an Indian Ocean storm who was rescued 28 hours later.
South African surfer Brett Archibald went overboard in the Indian Ocean at night. He then had to survive 28 hours, braving poisonous creatures.Maamoun al-Wadi has set up a mobile phone shop in one of the biggest refugee camps in the world - Zaatari, in northern Jordan. But it's not just about fixing phones, it's about preserving memories. Reporter Dale Gavlak went to meet him.British painter called Toby Brown has been trying to get people who've ...

Touch Pianist is a musical toy / instrument that allows the user to perform hard-to-play classical piano music favorites (from composers like Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Satie, Debussy to name a few) just by tapping the rhythm of the piece's particular sound events on a computer keyboard or a touch screen.

Sandusky unanticipated 2nd & 3rd order effects. He was convicted in 2011. A few years later laws are passed to require additional child safety measures (background checks). So far so good. In CAP and EAA [1], we've had to do those checks already this year. It's easy and quick. But let's suppose your high school junior wants to take college courses in his high school senior year. If the professors have clearances, he can take their classes. Or if the child matriculates as a degree-seeking student. But if he does that, he would be a transfer student at the normal college application time, and his chances of admission could be severely reduced, in some cases to zero. This is a special kind of Pennsylvania Hell.

[1] CAP = Civil Air Patrol, EAA = Experimental Aircraft Association (Young Eagle rides).

Crazy invention idea: Robot that can do your hair in 30 seconds.
Background: Coworker has daughter that needs her hair done in a very special way for dance class/performance. Nightmare of learning how to do it, let alone the time spent doing this every day. Could a really good robot do this properly in, say, 30 seconds?

I'm very sad to hear of the sudden passing of my BBN colleague Ray Tomlinson at age 74. If you use email, he invented it in 1971 as a fun side project, just one of his many inventions. He was the best software engineer I ever encountered in my career. He often took good code and made it much, much better. His own code tended to be closer to perfect from the get-go. He was kind enough to show us the hows and whys in his thinking. You could go to him for advice and he would give you great guidance. He was kind and encouraging. I worked with him on a dozen projects from logistics to scheduling to mapping to intelligent agents to distributed computing to fixing the JVM, and he was always the mark of excellence. There are hundreds of BBNers who have many Ray stories. He made it a point to come to work at 7:30 and leave at 4:30, he got more done than anyone, and I don't remember him ever being behind, even as he took time to help the rest of us. He was and is legend. Ray, you were awesome!

Open source is now ready to directly compete with Mathematica for use in the classroom
When I think about what makes SageMath different, one of the most fundamental things is that it was created by people who use it every day.  It was created by people doing research math, by people teaching math at universities, and by computer programmers a...
