I was recently in Austria recently for a Human Brain Project workshop on future computing. I gave a short presentation of some of my work but was more excited for the opportunity to play around with their neuromorphic chips and simulation software. The HBP is a fascinating project with great people and it was a blast to hang out with them. As always, the most interesting discussions took place over dinner or a beer :)

At around 3:37 ~ talks about technological obsolescence. 

"~ The people most affected by this are the ones least capable of understanding the reasons for it, so the venom builds up much quicker..."

Check it out the whole thing to get more context, great piece.

Go +Yuri Shprits ! 

Yuri Shprits, - "“This structure is pretty close to the Earth, which is important because people want to understand the environment where satellites operate,” Shprits says. “Usually plasma undergoes a number of different instabilities, and waves tend to move from one region in space to another, so everything you see is noisy, very short-lived, and on smaller scales. But this structure seems to be very persistent, highly coherent in space, and was remarkably organized and structured, which we didn’t know could exist to such high degree.”

The structure may help scientists identify radiation-remediation strategies in space.

Is it just me, or does the Oculus look like the dorkiest looking fashion accessory you could ever wear?

We’re in the midst of a jobs crisis, and rapid advances in AI and other technologies may be one culprit. How can we get better at sharing the wealth that technology creates?

If you're into the AI and interested in the effect it is/will have, this is an interesting 5 minutes worth listening to. --- via +John Hagel

Social media isn't so bad ;) 
My mom heard about meetup.com and gave it a shot - now she's out hiking all the time with a great group of people.

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."
