Today's Reason I Love Bob Dylan:

"These are the same people that tried to pin the name Judas on me.  Judas, the most hated name in human history!  If you think you've been called a bad name, try to work your way out from under that.  Yeah, and for what?  For playing an electric guitar?  As if that is in some kind of way equitable to betraying our Lord and delivering him up to be crucified.  All those evil motherfuckers can rot in hell."

Very cool article about 3D-printed exoskeletons.  Some of the concepts suggested may take years or decades to actually implement, but the ideas are all quite intriguing.

I already posted these articles on Facebook, but this is big news in my world, so I decided to post them here as well.

Okay, I'm just going to say this once, and then I'll make my peace with it.

Dear Google,

"+1'd" is not a verb. It's not even a word. This is the reason our children are growing up to be morons.

Love,
Scott

The thing that fascinates me most about Google+ is not that it can sort the people in your circles by "relevance," but rather that it pretty much gets the order right. I mean, I'd been looking for a formal way to rank order my friends - thanks, Google+!

Maybe Google+ is trying to tell us something. Maybe it knows that our friendship will someday bring about worldwide calamity, and it's trying to push us apart. Or maybe it just doesn't see the value in a relationship based solely on TOFU.
