Eve Online is a famously tedious game set in a science fiction universe called New Eden. Detractors — and even some of those who love it — deride the game as "spreadsheets in space" and "the most...

Jason Fried is a founder and CEO of 37signals, a software company based in Chicago. Fried also treats 37signals as something of a laboratory for innovative workplace practices--such as a recent experiment in shortening the summer workweek to just four days.

Jerry's Map: A World of the Imagination

In the summer of 1963 I began drawing a map of an imaginary city. The work started as a doodle done in the spare time I had while working at a tedious job. I continued to add to that map through the years until, in 1983, I set it aside to put my free time to other use. The Map was stored in the attic of our home in Cold Spring, New York. It gathered dust. My son, Henry, found it one day while rummaging around. He brought it down to me and asked what it was. Seeing it then triggered me to dust it off and continue the project. It now comprises almost 3100 individual eight by ten inch panels. Its execution, in acrylic, marker, colored pencil, ink, collage, and inkjet print on heavy paper, is dictated by the interplay between an elaborate set of rules and randomly generated instructions.
~ Jerry Gretzinger, 71 Artist and Mapmaker from Jerry's blog here: http://jerrysmap.blogspot.com/

The map has never been displayed in its entirety*, and no one, not even Jerry, knows what his world looks like. "Even he is powerless to say what the outcome will be," says Lynn Staley [Jerry's artist sister-in-law]. "So not only is there great beauty in the map's texture and variation, there is potentially galactic suspense. Will this place, whatever it is, survive or be consumed by the void? What about its inhabitants? And what can we learn from it about our own fate? Is there someone somewhere with another deck of cards like Jer's?"

A Jet pack For Running Faster

Here's an interesting proof of concept out of Arizona State University called the 4MM, which is an acronym for 4-minute mile. The goal is to give decently conditioned people, in particular soldiers, the ability to run an assisted 4-minute mile. From the article:

soldiers are physically fit, but the jetpack will make sure each one can do a 4-minute mile, even if they're not particularly fast runners, and even if they're carrying heavy equipment and armor.

We've seen several attempts at making jetpacks that fly, but over at Arizona State University, a team is developing one for those who prefer staying

With quantum computing, the military could transmit data from behind enemy lines without detection. http://theatln.tc/SMh9O6
This kind of tech has implications that extend beyond the battlefield.
