Pope reveals he hasn't watched television since 1990, when he made a promise to the Virgin Mary, and he never surfs the net: "The last time the Pope watched television Sylvester McCoy was Doctor Who and Margaret Thatcher was the Prime Minister. Pope Francis revealed that he has refused to watch the small screen since July 1990 when, for no particular reason, he promised the Virgin Mary he would eschew it." http://buff.ly/1KlbxQa

How electric light changed the night: "Before the dawn of electric light in the early 20th century, humans mostly took cues from the Sun to determine when to sleep and when to stay awake. Now, however, our exposure to artificial light sources is nearly constant." http://buff.ly/1DObwPn

How Companies and Services Like Facebook Are Shaped by the Programming Languages They Use: "When the Japanese computer scientist Yukihiro Matsumoto decided to create Ruby, a programming language that has helped build Twitter, Hulu, and much of the modern Web, he was chasing an idea from a 1966 science fiction novel called Babel-17 by Samuel R. Delany." http://buff.ly/1HwQlHA

Inside the Hellscape Where Our Computers Go to Die: "On the northwest side of Agbogbloshie, boys built a bridge with old monitors. There are so many monitors in Agbogbloshie that it was turned into a raw material for construction. Towers are built from keyboards and refrigerators are used as walls for houses.

Very careful with this item. Most (if not all) of that waste is generated in Africa. It is often mischaracterized as Western dumping, when it is actually a problem of discards from the African continent. This is a myth that refuses to die, and clouds the real issues surrounding ewaste reform.
