Societies behave at a macro level per our ingrained genetic code. That is an incredibly important meme to internalize and understand if we are ever going to succeed in trying to rise above it. We achieved self-awareness through a fluke side-effect of runaway evolved problem solving skills. At a macro level our societies continue to behave according to the rules of evolution. Until we understand that, the self-awareness we have at the individual level can't be expected to exist at the social level.

Anyone who votes and has an Android phone needs this app right away! This is a fantastic app for following your elected representatives (or other politicians you may be interested in) on every bill that's introduced and voted on! We need more attention on who votes how on all the bills that matter to you and this app makes it easy to do that.

This may not be everyone's cup of tea, but MIT has created a crowdsource game to help map out the retina of a mouse.  Awesome.

Is...is this satire?
 
7th grader suspended for twirling pencil ‘like a gun’ http://b4in.info/rXXB  

A 13-year-old boy in Vernon, New Jersey was suspended from school last week after being accused of holding his pencil like a gun.

Ethan Chaplin, a seventh-grade student at Glen Meadow Middle School, was twirling his pencil in math class when a fellow student suddenly yelled out, “He’s making gun motions, send him to juvie!”

Ethan was immediately taken to the principal’s office, suspended, and told he would not be able to return to school until he passed a psychological evaluation.

“I was shocked because I’m like, how am I not going to come back to school? I didn’t even do anything,” Ethan told News 12.

Despite telling school administrators that his classmate had been bullying him and was simply attempting to get him in trouble, Ethan says his comments were completely ignored.

When questioned, Vernon Schools Superintendent Charles Maranzano stood by the principal’s decision, insinuating that Ethan could be plotting a violent attack against his school.

“We never know what’s percolating in the minds of children,” Maranzano said. “And when they demonstrate behaviors that raise red flags, we must do our duty.”

Michael Chaplin, Ethan’s father, was just as shocked by the school’s handling of the situation.

“I’m absolutely livid,” Michael said. “I think it’s gross misconduct at its finest. They took something so minimal and took it so far over the edge.”

Every so often I share this video. There is nothing I've read or watched that is so inspirational to me, awe inspiring, and humbling as this. It succinctly summarizes my world view and blows my mind every time I watch it which is now a dozen times or more.
Science Saved My Soul.

Finished my first game for the Sifteo Cubes (http://www.sifteo.com)! Well... functionally at least. It's all graphical bells and whistles from here in.

Sifteo hasn't opened their online app store yet so I can't share it just yet.
