Who said lenses have to be curved. A new flat lens, developed at Harvard, could be a gamechanger for cameras, telescopes and optics in general. http://ow.ly/JlsZe

Interesting....
 
Just imagine...beer, nearly anywhere.
One company is trying to let you make a fresh beer the way you'd make a K-Cup of coffee.

Tin Whiskers Brewery (open source craft brewery) bucks the trend of secret recipes

An open source craft brewery in Saint Paul, Minnesota is taking open source beyond sharing recipes. The goal for Tin Whiskers Brewing Company is to "engage and give back to the community by sharing an inside look at opening and operating a craft brewery." In this interview with co-founder George Kellerman, we learn a little more about why the trio of hobbyists who started the brewing company took the path to becoming professional brewers and why they decided to be more open. "The brewery community was extremely helpful and open, so being open ourselves seemed like a great way to honor that," Kellerman said.

Brewing beer is a notoriously secretive business. But the Tin Whiskers Brewing Company is trying to buck the trend by going open source.

Who wants to play?
 
Get the family together with a new board game this holiday season. 
While you were busy crushing your loved ones at Monopoly or Settlers of Catan, game designers around the world released new space adventures, deck-building sagas, and zombie survival games. So order a pizza and invite over one to three friends.

Good news for nature photographers.
The Ansel Adams Act, introduced by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), would strengthen First Amendment rights for America's photographers.

Agreed
 
US Trade Rep fails on really basic transparency stuff—like filling out the public records section of its own site.
It's no secret that the US Trade Representative (USTR) has approached the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations with a disappointing lack of transparency.

Scientists Determine How A Firefly Lights Up
http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2014/12/23/scientists-determine-how-a-firefly-lights-up/

Fireflies used rapid light flashes to communicate. This “bioluminescence” is an intriguing phenomenon that has many potential applications, from drug testing and monitoring water contamination, and even lighting up streets using glow-in-dark trees and plants. Fireflies emit light when a compound called luciferin breaks down. We know that this reaction needs oxygen, but what we don’t know is how fireflies actually supply oxygen to their light-emitting cells. Using state-of-the-art imaging techniques, scientists from Switzerland and Taiwan have determined how fireflies control oxygen distribution to light up their cells. The work is published in Physical Review Letters.
