By the skin of my teeth....

I had to sneak in one last photo-shoot on my way back to the airport last week - just managing to make it back out of the park before they locked the gates on me....

Ever wondered how the electric Formula E cars work? We show you how each component works to provide power for the motorsport cars.

Incredibly long ("near Infinite Jest -length"), data-heavy Vox post about the present and future economies of solar plus improved storage batteries. I didn't read this, but somebody out there will love it.

It's coming, there's no stopping it, and utilities are going to get crushed if they don't reform.

Oh my god this is amazing... At first it's just darkness but then the most bizarre effect starts to happen, in between realty, in a video game. I wonder if the game makers even knew it did this?

I get the benefits of being mindful and, especially of reporting on what you've accomplished done.

As I result, I opted to use my desk in its standing configuration for a couple of hours today.

Sadly, that's the height of my accomplishments this week, but at least you've got me thinking about it more.

I've been slacking on this front, admittedly, +Dane Findley.  I got it months ago, ans started-out every day standing through lunch, and then for another hour or so in the afternoon.   I have a bum knee that acted up a while ago, so I got into the habit of babying it and not standing much (if at all). It's feeling better now, though, so this is an easy way to avoid just sitting around all day.  As an added bonus, I tend to fidget even more than usual when I stand, so am probably even burning a calorie or two in the process...

Largest quantitative study of howling, and first to use machine learning, defines different howl types and finds that wolves use these types more or less depending on their species, resembling a howling dialect. Researchers say findings could help conservation efforts and shed light on the earliest evolution of our own use of language.

Hanging up on annoying telemarketers is the easiest way to deal with them, but that just sends their autodialers onto the next unfortunate victim. Roger Anderson decided that telemarketers deserved a crueler fate, so he programmed an artificially intelligent bot that keeps them on the line for as long as possible.
