The German company Festo has produced some amazing flying robots, and their butterflies are the latest example of beautiful motion. (If you like this you'll love their 2012 bird, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnR8fDW3Ilo.)
Yesterday 47 years ago MLK was killed, and RFK delivered what may well be the greatest, most moving impromptu speech ever. I don't really know how he could possibly prepare for such a difficult speech (the audience, mostly black, hadn't heard the news yet) in just 30 minutes. Yet it easily ranks among the very best speeches ever given. Simply amazing.

Will anything supersede twitter as the place to follow people? Interested to see how they prevent bias toward early adopters & how to prevent stagnation. They should make it easier to unfollow people IMO (or remove noise somehow)
hmm eventually everyone you know will have a unique ID and there will just be different apps that help you catagorize people of the world into different groups relevant to you and then different services such as twitter will just act on those groups. The bias comes through search ranking algorithms and suggestion algorithms. although I'm sure there will be plenty of algorithms which don't contain such bias.
