Great documentary on an international coding challenge for girls in high school. It focuses on apps that bring positive change to their communities. Really inspiring. Sadly it's only available on YouTube until today so go watch it while you can!

This is huge! With every major browser vendor on board and the combined experience from PNaCl, asm.js and emscripten this could really change the web as a platform. I wonder though what they will do to accommodate garbage collection which wasn't really needed for asm.js but would be great to support the likes of C#, Java and Go on a truly polyglot bytecode just as LLVM is getting support for garbage collection specific intrinsics.

Congratulations go to ESA, this is truly amazing! Great engineering indeed. I'm definitely looking forward to new data from the surface of a comet :)

Never had failure looked this awesome. You can just feel how difficult this is and why everyone thought it impossible, yet they're sooo close it feels just a tiny bit of tuning away.

An autonomous barge is sailing to a destination 200 km off the Florida coast to serve as the landing pad for a rockets first stage that will be returning from near space after boosting a space freighter on it's way to a manned space station. Even with less than a 0.5 success probability the fact this is even attempted blows my mind. We are indeed living the future of science fiction.

You still think Computer Science is a dull subject only man are good at? Think again, it was a woman who led the team that developed code that wound up saving Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin from crashing into the moon.

7th of January 1996 just some guy named Lawrence (aka Larry) Page, asking on comp.lang.java how to set the User-Agent for his web crawling robot. Yeah that web crawling robot that was to become the backbone of the most successful Internet company in the world.
