This could be extremely disruptive. If it could've smaller than a battery there are so many implications for its use beyond charging your cell phone.

Think about lighting anywhere reachable by wifi. No more electrical wiring in your house for light bulb sockets. Just attach a fixture or put a lamp base where you want it and use wifi powered and controlled LED lights.

It could free up so many small things to be designed to not need plugging in or bulky batteries: wall clocks, wireless mice and trackpads, remote controls, sonic toothbrushes, toys, and many other modern conveniences.

If small and light enough, this could also make wearable tech actually feasible: earrings and other jewelry that doubles as speakers and microphones, clothing with lighting or other dynamic decoration, and possibly even contacts that give you AR displays.

It could be used in series to power sections of e-paper for signs, display boards and wall paper. There would be no more need for a stand alone TV or monitor.

If used for powering individual components, this could feasibly affect robotics as well: what if each gear were independently powered and so there was no need for tethered power or heavy battery packs to enable large robots to move?

This is very exciting tech! I hope it is not vaporware, but even if this particular implementation is, it seems like the most likely future for small power needs.
Charging your phone will soon be a thing of the past
New technology allows cell phones to charge up by converting radio waves into DC power. That means your cell phone could charge in your pocket.

This was in my stream on a post not at all related to gaming, but it cracked me up since my main class is BRD. Thought I might not be the only one to chuckle.

This was a good read. I was prepared to disagree, but the distinctions made between shame, guilt and humiliation won me over. Shame is definitely a tool we need to wield to fix this social problem.
The best way to win a debate is to present your facts in a clear, respectful way. When that doesn't work, another option is incessant ridicule. Here's why we have to use shame if we want to stop the anti-vaccine movement.

Everything I've seen illustrates that it does not break down upon politically ideological lines; so (IMHO) people trying to brand a political ideology as being anti-vaccination is not just being dishonest, but being grossly and dangerously malicious.
The other thing that frustrates me is myopic thinking of lumping anti-vaccine because of mercury / autism / etc. people with the anti-government should be able to forcibly inject you with big pharma products crowd.

Very different thinking - not the same and dishonest to say it is, IMHO.

Growing up - I remember our school bussing us to a nearby city for vaccinations. No big deal. There was one muslim kid and his family refused.

#QuestionsForMen: would you feel comfortable having a group of only women deciding about what kind of healthcare you could receive to maintain your reproductive organs and general health as a man?

[[California Republican Darrell Issa chaired the panel, and because Republicans hold a majority in the House, he was able to choreograph the entire proceedings. He thoughtfully assembled a diverse group of men who don't necessarily have any real, fact-based reason to oppose birth control except for the fact that it made them feel icky. Invited to testify were five men. And no women. The whole thing was, to put it as succinctly as possible, depressing as f*ck.]]
Today on Capitol Hill, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform assembled a panel to discuss the birth control mandate in President Obama's Affordable Care Act. Specifically, whether or not requiring insurers to cover birth control violates religious freedom of people who don't believe in science. The committee, chaired by a male, consisted of eight men who felt personally persecuted by the requirement. And that's about the least de...

I think Bill recognizes the problem, but not the appropriate solution. We (collectively, but especially our representative government) need to start planning for this upcoming crisis soon. The wealth gap is already too big. What happens when suddenly the "working poor" no longer even have jobs to attempt to live off of? This reality is coming fast....

The 1% also needs to realize that it is in their best interests to be compassionate to those less fortunate and start financially supporting them (by paying more taxes to prevent the collapse of society). They may disparage us all as leeches, but if they don't assist, they will be creating a problem for themselves in securing their assets. They are effectively becoming the French monarchy right before the Revolution.

This had the best political counter-argument I have heard yet:

[[Remember before the midterm elections when Obama was blamed for Ebola — which did not infect people within our borders — and Republicans demanded he ‘close the borders’? Then they won the midterm elections and forgot all about the Ebola patients which have not been infected in this country.

And now there’s an outbreak of measles and they’re opposing vaccinations. The majority of people who have measles have not been vaccinated.

It’s highly contagious. See: Disney.]]

Vaccinate your kids!

Awesome trolling!
With an outbreak of measles infecting 100 people in 15 states and an anti-vaccine doctor declaring this week, “I frankly don't care if my child gets other children fatally sick,” a 2012 children's book “Melanie's Marvelous Measles,” written by an anti-vaxxer, is being mercilessly trolled.

I like the internets.  A lot.

I have my iPad within reach 24 hours a day.  Why? So I can always be on the internet.

I have a job where I get to build stuff that you use on the internet.  I love that.

I have other interests like style and photography and Photoshop.  They all end up cataloged on the internet.

And now I have Google+.  Just plug me in, baby!

I want to make your G+ a little more organized... So tell me if you want to hear from me. Here are pages I've created about specific topics that I post on, so if you are only interested in those particular facets of my life, you will only see posts about them.  Clutter reduced!  Focus achieved!  

There are a couple of things I'm still not ready to create topic pages for but you can still subscribe to topic posts by leaving a comment on the linked posts below and you will be added to my appropriate circles:
Since apparently Google decides what you're interested in by the things you put in your profile, I am adding a list of tags so others can find me.  If you have a circle for posting about these things, feel free to add me to it.
