We have been resisting the relentless pull of chocolate at our house so far this month, but this is making my mouth water.
I think the wriggler could probably fit inside this, or at least use it as a bath tub.

This is pretty cool.
(Does anybody else feel like we're beginning to live in the future?)
A brain-computer interface lets a quadriplegic woman pilot an F-35 flight simulator with the power of her mind alone.

It was actually pretty interesting. Especially when they started talking about 'emotional contagion'.

Today I had a fairly ordinary meeting to discuss a new OGC web service required by a science team at my work.
In attendance:
- The lead scientist,
- the developer team lead working on the front end application,
-the spatial applications team lead
- me, technical owner of one of the web services platforms,
- and a rep from a different department, currently work-shadowing to learn how we do web service governance.

So why do I mention this?
Every single person in that room was a woman.
#womeninSTEM - not nearly as rare as you think.

This is a great selection of maps about the evolution of the English language.
Please don't ask about my accent - I'm a bitsa :)
 
Some fun graphics for all y'all, all about (not aboot, nobody says that) English: http://www.vox.com/2015/3/3/8053521/25-maps-that-explain-english

If nothing gets done at G+ today it's because I accidentally pinged +Yonatan Zunger on this whoops there see I just did that.
From Beowulf to Wikipedia, here's how English grew, spread, and changed.

US GeoINT Geo Geeks - The USGIF Technical Committee is seeking co-chairs for its Interoperability Outreach and Emerging Technology subcommittees.
The only catch is that nominees must be from a USGIF Member Organisation. 
The Technical Committee identifies emerging trends and serves as a collection point for community needs, developing technical aspects of the tradecraft to demonstrate true interoperability from common community standards. Within this committee are the Tradecraft Development Subcommittee, ...

+Strava have created a global heat map of runs and rides.
It's beautiful.
(Any Geo Geeks who wish to discuss their use of the word 'heat map' will need to be polite.  I'm calling it a heat map because the owners call it a heat map.)
h/t to +Caitlin Dempsey Morais 's GIS Lounge, which also has this wonderful article about heat maps and hot spot maps:
