I hope this isn't a real leaked image. This watch has a bezel inside of a bezel. Pebble never ceases to disappoint.

Edit: It IS real sadly. And they're not even selling it. Only luring the biggest of suckers on Kickstarter...again.

The link below leads to a long article. So long that it will likely take you 1-2 hours to read (save it for the weekend). But the topic is important. And as the author puts it, "by far THE most important topic for our future" and I profoundly agree. What's it about? Artificial superintelligence (ASI) and its implications for humanity.

Most of us are only familiar with ASI via the ridiculous (but entertaining) scenarios from science fiction like The Matrix, I Robot, Her, etc. Some of us are aware that more and more respected science and tech blogs are beginning to discuss ASI seriously. However, a few of us realize that many of the world's top minds are more worried about ASI in regards to preserving the future of humanity than economic collapse, climate change, food/water shortage, poverty, nuclear warfare, etc.

If you've found that it's getting more and more difficult to keep up with technology, it's not (entirely) due to getting older or busier. But rather, our current civilization, out of all of the generations of humans that have ever lived on this planet, exists in a time frame where the development of an ASI is very much a likelihood within our lifetimes. One group believes because of this, we're incredibly fortunate. The other group thinks we have the biggest responsibility of all time in our hands.

If I've intrigued (or bored) you enough, go read it!
The topic everyone in the world should be talking about.

+Redwan Huq very true! Nanotech and genetics are two areas where we've barely scratched the surface with huge implications. Both techs would benefit greatly from an advanced AI.

Telling Apple what they can't do is the dumbest thing someone can do.
Dan Akerson, who ran General Motors for less than three and a half years, issued a stern warning to Apple this week against making a car. In an interview with Bloomberg, he noted that making cars...

I like to celebrate the day we met (yes, it was on Valentine's Day) each year with a few jewels from Christopher Elbow.

I knew this was dead-in-the-water upon launch, and have avoided using it.

It's funny that over the years, after keeping close scrutiny over Google, I know when to get excited about one of their new ventures and dive in headfirst, and when to roll my eyes and keep walking.
 
So long, and thanks for all the fish frying instructions.

This is stupid cool. Just not fair. 
Tesla's Model S P85D is already a wolf in sheep's clothing — a sedan with a 0-60 time bordering on supercar territory — and CEO Elon Musk says they're going to make it even crazier. Tesla...

Apparently those leaked images about Pebble's next smartwatch were actually real and not a fan-made joke. If you want to see the epitome of money being thrown away at the rate of thousands of dollars per second, click below.
Pebble Technology is raising funds for Pebble Time - Awesome Smartwatch, No Compromises on Kickstarter! Color e-paper smartwatch with up to 7 days of battery and a new timeline interface that highlights what's important in your day.

Excellent scrutiny of the mindsets of rational people who continue to doubt science. It's easy to blame the internet and its wealth of both trustworthy and dubious sources, but scientists themselves are also the culprits here for hiding in our ivory towers and thinking that policy and communication are someone else's problems.
We live in an age when all manner of scientific knowledge--from climate change to vaccinations--faces furious opposition. Some even have doubts about the moon landing.

The nationwide delusion that home ownership is a guaranteed source of excellent capital gains is flummoxing. Buy a house only if you need the housing services it provides, aka a place to store your stuff, for raising kids, more space, etc. Otherwise, a better option would be to invest that money in a real estate investment trust, which can add excellent diversification to your portfolio.
After inflation,home prices have gone nowhere.

Liberals can be just as anti-science as conservatives. The hypocrisy is worrisome.

What's particularly odd is that liberals will vehemently advocate eating GMO-free, and pesticide-free foods, even though science has demonstrated its safety time and time again. Even more baffling is the claim that organic food is any different than conventional food. But the worst are "eating local" and sustainable foods, the latter of which is really an oxymoron when it comes to feeding the world.
For some conservatives, harmonizing issues of faith and science can be tricky. What excuse do Democrats have?

The award for highest quarterly profit ever recorded in history by any company in existence goes to a American tech company, and it's none other than Apple, Inc. Bravo Tim Cook! And they did it by selling smartphones. 
Apple had a pretty good quarter. And by "pretty good", I mean it was the biggest quarter in history. And not just for Apple. For any company. Ever.

Innovator at the crossroads of nanotechnology and immunology
Introduction
I am a scientist with 9 years of experience in research and development. I have extensive training in the fields of molecular diagnostics, immunology, and nanotechnology.

Currently as a PhD candidate at Baylor College of Medicine, I work in a lab interested in the development of groundbreaking treatments for autoimmune diseases. During my dissertation research, I have defined a new direction for my lab: using bleeding-edge carbon nanoparticles to treat rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. My efforts led to the filing of a non-provisional utility patent application. 

I believe that while basic science research is essential for treating diseases, the strategic advancement and commercialization of novel findings play a crucial role as well. Therefore, I also currently work as a consultant intern for Fannin Innovation Studio, a venture capital and life science accelerator, to gain a more complete understanding of the drug development process.

Previously, I worked as an R&D scientist at Canon U.S. Life Sciences, a subsidiary of Canon, Inc. As a member of an interdisciplinary team consisting of biologists, engineers, physicists and computer scientists, we built clinical genotyping assays and transitioned them onto our in-house microfluidic platform with the goal of manufacturing a medical device that would detect genetic diseases from patient samples within minutes. I was fortunate enough to be a part of the team that conducted the first field trial of the device with collaborators across the US.

In all my professional endeavors, colleagues have known me as a dedicated problem solver—I always aim to identify the core issue, work with the most crucial information, and propose a solution in the shortest time.

I am intensely passionate about my career and its growth. Using my diverse experiences from the private sector and academia, I am always looking for opportunities to attain the maximum possible significance and impact from my knowledge and contributions.
