Awesome trick to get an extra system modifier key and system wide vim-style hjkl movements on your Mac.

I've had my Caps Lock key remapped to an escape key for some time now. I've become quite used to it --- to the point where using other people's keyboards is inconvenient. Given that I've already

"...in Mathematica 9 there’s an important new idea. We call it the Wolfram Predictive Interface™, and what it does is to automate the process of suggesting at every step what to do next."

Sounds delicious! I've been using Mathematica ever since I bought my first copy as a freshman in high school. Nothing comes close in terms of user interface.

This is going to change the way we do science. Soon machines will be telling us where we have gaps in our knowledge, and which experiments need to be done. We could map out entire genetic networks based on published data and perhaps identify patterns and motifs too complicated for humans to piece together by reading alone. 

The next decade is going to usher in an amazing new age of Big Data with profound consequences for human health and well being.

One day we will bioengineer vaccine implants that are connected to the internet, download the latest virus definitions, and synthesize whatever components are necessary to induce immunity.

For that matter, I can also see us giving our cells firmware updates in a similar manner.

Biologists have found new evidence of why mice, people and other vertebrate animals carry thousands of varieties of genes to make immune-system proteins named MHCs--even though some of those genes make vertebrate animals susceptible to infections and to autoimmune diseases.

This would be an interesting use for 3D printer technology.
Above, one of the bronze sculptures to emerge from the Object Breast Cancer project by art duo caraballo-farman. Snip from the project description: 1.3 Million women in the world are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. For most, the tumor has no image. It’s an invisible monster, an unseen malignancy. OBJECT BREAST CANCER (OBC) is based on the conviction that artistic interventions can have important social and psychological effects. The ...

“With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably.” Those words were uttered by Judge Aaron Satie, as wisdom and warning.
