"Science fiction writer Philip K. Dick gravesite in Fort Morgan" http://prsm.tc/J7ptxj
On the endless flatland that houses the small town of Fort Morgan, the local cemetery is home to the grave of well-known science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. Dick, who died in 1982 at 53 years old, produced 36 novels, 121 short stories and 14 collections in his short life; his books have been translated into 25 languages. Although his writing gave him little financial success in his...

O czym to ja chciałem napisać?
Studies show that you're more likely to remember things that you write down, but there are circumstances where you should grab your laptop.

"Building big data systems in academia and industry" http://prsm.tc/oCjvYt
Mikio Braun is a machine learning researcher who also enjoys software engineering. We first met when he co-founded a real-time analytics company called streamdrill. Since then, I’ve always had great conversations with him on many topics in the data space. He gave one of the best-attended sessions at Strata + Hadoop World in Barcelona last year on some of his work at streamdrill. I recently sat...

Hugo nominees withdraw their works from award over controversy http://news360.com/article/287982655

I've read a couple of +Marko Kloos' novels and he's shaping up to be a great writer.  I fully support his decision to withdraw in light of the drama.   

I went to his site and saw that his novel was replaced by “The Three-Body Problem” by Liu Cixin - who is also a fantastic author and, I think, more practiced and deserving of an award.  

Kloos will earn his Hugo if he keeps writing and I'll keep reading his works.

"Blue – the most popular color on the Internet"
Sadly, no Neuromancer / Tron mentioned.
The equipment-free aspect of reality here has become the height of artifice; the sight of immediate reality has become a blue flower in the land of technology.” (Walter Benjamin, “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproducibility” 35). Consider the blue flower.
