Full video & transcript of last night's State of the Union address, complete with statement-by-statement fact checking by the New York Times (via simple web interface).

I love the web.

Excellent read about the changing nature of the American manufacturing industry, and the roles of "skilled" vs "unskilled" workers therein.

A must-read if you're young and making decisions about your future.
In the past decade, the flow of goods emerging from U.S. factories has risen by about a third. Factory employment has fallen by roughly the same fraction. The story of Standard Motor Products, a 92-ye...

Thanks to @WNYCRadioLab for expanding my understanding of the Milgram Experiment.

"The Bad Show"--a solid episode: http://www.radiolab.org/2012/jan/09/

If you haven't listened to RadioLab before, also be sure to check out the following episodes:

"The Good Show" - http://www.radiolab.org/2010/dec/14/

"Cities" - http://www.radiolab.org/2010/oct/08/

"Stochasticity" - http://www.radiolab.org/2009/jun/15/
(this one fundamentally changed the way I think about the world)

"Emergence" - http://www.radiolab.org/2007/aug/14/
Cruelty, violence, badness... This episode of Radiolab, we wrestle with the dark side of human nature, and ask whether it's something we can ever really understand, or fully escape.

Started reading this tonight. I'm one chapter in, and I already want to shout from the mountain tops for people to read it (especially before we get into the full swing of election season).

Basic premise: The human mind is prone to errors and illusions in judgement, but in predictable ways. The more conscious we can be of our cognitive biases, the better equipped we are to handle analysis of everything from "water cooler gossip" to important life decisions.

"Although it’s based on theoretical principles, syntax and conventions, coding is inherently a practical activity. Far from being boring, applied coding is an incredibly creative process, one that provides a healthy challenge and rewards with a great sense of achievement. This is how it should be taught: make it social, make it inspiring, make it fun. Let students create things that actually work and can be used. Teach people examples in practical settings – let them build logic gates for train sets, loops for alarm clocks, sensory feedback for toys and games."

A long but very worthwhile read if you are, have been, or are thinking about becoming a coder.
The Kernel's developer columnist Andy Young takes a nostalgic look back at computer science education and makes a passionate case for upgrading kids' skills today.

Honestly, I figured they were doing this already.

This is the difference between a fully-integrated stack that makes their money when you purchase hardware & software, and a fully-integrated stack that makes money when advertisers purchase your information & attention.
Google announced Tuesday that it will integrate a user’s information across Gmail, YouTube, search and 57 other Google services.

If you live in any place where motor vehicles and cyclists share the road, take a look at "How cars can be nice to cyclists" from our Cycling community. If you have anything to add, either as a cyclist or a driver, let them in know in the comments!
