So this is cool 

"...his song picks are mostly a celebration of life – from a gospel classic to a Van Morrison love song and a prog rock hit with an interesting twist."

Pretty exciting! Check out the automated parking robots at 1:10, nice simple idea that if well executed could be really useful.

"Biotech is the second biggest category for venture investment after software. VCs are gaining confidence in life sciences companies (which include those developing new drugs and therapies as well as those that make medical devices and equipment) partly because their underlying research has advanced significantly, says Greg Vlahos, life sciences partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, which published the new numbers. A big spike in IPOs by biotech companies over the past two years has also made the field more enticing."

+Bobby Brooke, thought you might be interested! Hope you're doing well man. cheers

I played in a Gaelic football tournament last week in Munich. A fantastic experience -- we played 5 games in one day... man that was tough but it was great fun.

Snapshot in Rome. - Monti square. 

I took a lunch break and ran into this little concert in Monti. These guys were so good that a grandmother even came out on her balcony and threw down money.

"The Google and UCSB researchers showed they could program groups of qubits—devices that represent information using fragile quantum physics—to detect certain kinds of error, and to prevent those errors from ruining a calculation. "

Question: Why is it we have no trouble understanding the difference between a simulation of a worm's brain and a real worm brain, but we can't do the same for simulations of quantum computing?

Answer: Hubris.
