This is incredible!
Fellow space nerds, I come bringing sweet internet relief for the Monday doldrums. It’s stuffin.space, a real-time, 3D-visualised map of all objects looping around Earth, from satellites to orbital trash. <a href="http://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2015/07/heres-a-real-time-map-of-all-the-objects-in-earths-orbit">Read More >></a>

I remember when I was around 6 years old, I heard this song and realized that Billie Joe Mcallister jumped off the Tallahachee bridge on my birthday and for months I was terrified or very sad at this public proof that nothing good ever happened on the third of June.

Now decades later, I realize how sad the lives of all of the people in this song are, not just Billie Joe.  No wonder it hit me so hard.

With a Pi 2 in it this will have more compute power and be as small as "Tiny Tim" my Toshiba Libretto that cost me around $1000 back in the 90s.

Must build this by August 31st.

Here's why I don't believe in apologies: there's no reason to believe the library will act any different in the future.

A more appropriate response in this case - indeed, what I should think would be the minimal acceptable response - is that the library indicate in plain concrete language what they will do ensure that this sexist bullshit never happens again, and what consequences they should expect to accrue if it does. For instance, the public termination of employment of anyone caught behaving in such a despicable way.

Chris Urmson, Director of the Self-Driving Car Project, explains the difference between driver assistance systems and fully self-driving cars in his recent +TED Talk "How a driverless car sees the world." 
Statistically, the least reliable part of the car is ... the driver. Chris Urmson heads up Google's driverless car program, one of several efforts to remove humans from the driver's seat. He talks about where his program is right now, and shares fascinating footage that shows how the car sees the road and makes autonomous decisions about what to do next.

They don't open when they say. I could've made some tea at home, but I assumed you were running a business. Epic fail folks.

The Tea Lattes have as much body as coffee, finally! The staff is amazing, they remembered me and my "usual" after a couple of visits. The wide variety of seating has places for you to read a chapter or people watch. What could be better? Open earlier so that I can go there more :)

After a year of being the first customer of the day, having a cup of tea, tipping relatively well and dealing with occasional beginning-of-shift startup issues I was told today that "notebooks and tablets are only allowed downstairs" I asked if this was new and was told that it's "since last wednesday, there's a sign behind the register." Well, so much for customer service. You've lost me and I suspect many other loyal regulars to whom you've just said "s**** you" Good luck.
