Where has this been all my life? A lot better than other side-tab #chromeextensions I've tried.

Oh,Google+ fixed its bizarrely enormous profile header images. That's nice. (Sorry, I'm probably late to that party...)

I won't pretend that I should be telling Neil Armstrong what to do, so instead of Rest In Peace, I'll go with Thank You: It's hard to imagine a life filled with greater contributions. I hope there's good flying where you are now!

Researchers at MIT, Harvard University, and Seoul National University have engineered a soft autonomous #robot that moves via peristalsis, crawling across surfaces by contracting segments of its body, much like an earthworm. The robot, made almost entirely of soft materials, is remarkably resilient: Even when stepped upon or bludgeoned with a hammer, the robot is able to inch away, unscathed.

Sangbae Kim, the Esther and Harold E. Edgerton Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at MIT, says such a soft robot may be useful for navigating rough terrain or squeezing through tight spaces.

Over the course of this 4-hour Google+ Hangout on Air, we'll interview members of the Curiosity team live in the hangout, as well as other special guests from the +The Planetary Society and the +SETI Institute.

+Scott Lewis and +Amy Shira Teitel will be on location at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to interview members of the engineering team, and show you what it's like to be at NASA during this amazing moment.

They had this in Costa Rica when I went with +Nicole Glass. We Ziplined with Spider Monkeys! I, the klutz, dropped Nicole's camera into the lake below and the tour guide dove down over 15 feet and somehow got it back.

What a cute pup :-)

(+Cameron Brown, you'll like this!)
 
Here's a cute #AutoAwesome  of Kodak while we were on our walk today. He does a pretty good job of sitting and staying for us while we take his photo ... but there are so many good smells here it's tough to keep him still for long :)

Think you could live an entirely open source life for one year? This guy is about to try.

Story
Introduction
I like staying in the car until the song is finished, research titles composed entirely of buzz words, and singers with gravelly voices. I've read the first half of a whole lot of books. I like irreverent jokes. I don't like going to bed. I will eat the lemons from your drink if you'll let me.
