Science funding is "the lowest it has been since the Second World War as a fraction of the federal budget."
Scientists at MIT say declining government spending on basic research is holding back potentially life-saving advances.

Nice.
A computer scientist teams up with a film student for an ambitious project: finding the perfect set of images that will induce hallucinogenic visions of God. But just as they succeed, they find themselves pursued by a mysterious religious sect. Be sure to watch this one to the very end.

IBM anticipates that once a handful of superconducting qubits can be manufactured reliably and repeatedly, and controlled with low error rates, there will be no fundamental obstacle to demonstrating error correction in larger lattices of qubits.
IBM scientists today unveiled two critical advances towards the realization of a practical quantum computer. For the first time, they showed the ability to detect and measure both kinds of quantum errors simultaneously, as well as demonstrated a new, square quantum bit circuit design that is the only ...

It’s about how the kids of tomorrow won’t freak out over terabytes of storage. They’ll freak out over kilowatt-hours.
Nobody wants to say it outright, but the Apple Watch sucks. So do most smartwatches. Every time I use my beautiful Moto 360, its lack of functionality makes me despair. But the problem isn’t our gadgets. It’s that the future of consumer tech isn’t going to come from information devices. It’s going to come from infrastructure.

But in the past few years, the tide has shifted within the field. Recent studies have revealed a wealth of new pieces of noncoding DNA that do seem to be as important to our survival as our more familiar genes.
Biologists are feuding over the usefulness of our genetic material — and the fundamental sloppiness of life on earth.

There have been some great series from Japan that started out as Light Novels (kind of their version of a novella, but with illustrations usually).  The short format makes for a quick read, with less exposition, and a good fit for our busy life styles these days.
Tor.com is moving aggressively into publishing novellas (or short novels) in e-book format, and they just announced their first list of titles. But why is Tor.com (and everybody else) so convinced that shorter is better for e-books? Editorial assistant Carl Engle-Laird explains.

A bit of science for your day:
When we see science fiction stories set during the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the inventor Nikola Tesla tends to show up an awful lot. But the Victorian era and the early 20th century are filled with inventors who led fascinating lives, lives that just don’t tend to turn up in fiction.

This real time demo is astounding.  Though it may be years before such tech hits our homes, something to look forward to.
Unsurprisingly, four Titan Xs and an 8-core Intel CPU make PC games look gooood.

Philip K. Dick said this back in 1978:  "Because today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups."
How can you tell what's real, in a world where huge industries, governments and religions are all trying to force-feed you manufactured realities? Philip K. Dick sums up the challenges of detecting reality in a world that resembles Disneyland, in this great 1978 quote.

This is a cool build.  Raspberry Pi project, "The All-Seeing Pi."  It monitors temp/humidity, has a motion sensor to take pictures, saves data to Dropbox/G-Drive, and can text images to a user when triggered.
