The Rise of Mobile Tracking Headers: How Telcos Around the World Are Threatening Your Privacy

This report is very difficult to read because the topic and the data are just disheartening. Do it anyway... and don't get evil ideas ;)

It's a complex topic with many aspects to consider that a a Google+ post won't do it justice. I may blog about it sometime.

Last fall, we let you know that Caltech and The Feynman Lectures Website joined forces to create an online edition of The Feynman Lectures on Physics. They started with Volume 1. And now they've followed up with Volume 2 and Volume 3, making the collection complete.

Yeah that would do it too +Thien Dang :)

A similar trend I'm seeing with my circle of geeky friends as to use three-letter codes for city names, which is usually also the airport code (San Francisco -> SFO).

So you build a humanoid robot. You send it on a hitchhiking trip around the world. You depend on people to read instructions and depend on their kindness to transport it. What could possibly go wrong?

Oh...

The social media-savvy robot had relied on the kindness of strangers to travel the world but was found battered and dismembered in an alley.

This is neat.

Reminds a bit of shared dictionary compression. Look that up if you run a website ;)

How often do you sit down together for a meal as a family without distractions?

Based on a survey is of working moms, part-time or full ltime, 89% do so at least once a week. Assuming the "once a week" group are those who do so only on weekends, that's still 80% of families that do so at least a few times a week.
