Something tells me +Paul Kater  wants one of these things like..yesterday. 
Thinkgeek's $60 Tesla Steampunk Watch has it all: clock-winding key, silvery vacuum tubes (they light with an elaborate switch), brass housing, steam-pressure dial second-hand, and a sturdy leather...

Okay, it didn't show me the image last time.  Only the comment.  Hence, my question.

Great article on why the debate itself misses the point. Pro Sustainable, Anti-Pesticide, Anti-Big Business...whatever the reasons are, few if any address the science...and the science is so much more nuanced than the sound bites.

I can get not wanting companies to use more pesticides...I can at least understand (even if not agree with) having an issue with a company profiting off of the genome of food, but all of that is utterly tangential to the science. Much of the rhetoric amounts to throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Genetically modified crops are a big part of both our food supply and our debates about health and safety. But some scientists and observers argue those debates are getting the science of GMOs wrong, and grouping together crops that don't belong in the same argument.

I always found it to be short sighted for our intelligence apparatus to want to make the web less secure, to want to install backdoors and to basically weaken the medium of the internet. Last year I made the comment that your built in weaknesses can be discovered and exploited by your enemies. Now that statement is proving itself out as China has launched successful cyber attacks against us and is poised to launch more. 

Its incredibly hard to justify the use of a backdoor, it requires the pipe dream of being able to assure that the only people who have the keys are the 'good guys' and technology has proven time and time again that if a weakness exists, it will be discovered and exploited. 

Crypto is just another tool in the box to protect the internet and ensure that only the people who should have access to data do. Good on these companies for speaking up about it. 
The joint letter from human rights organizations, eminent cryptographers, tech companies and trade associations takes aim at the FBI's ever-louder calls to ban the use of effective cryptography.

Wonderful article on the use of GM crops to actually do something we want, reduce the use of broad spectrum pesticide, and how it is twisted by motivated reasoning into something the opposite. For what its worth +Steven Novella and the SGU were one of reasons my thinking around this changed in the last few years.

I'm trying to understand how this is really different from circles, which I was using to aggregate the content I chose to share in the past. Anyone have a concise way of defining the difference?

Greatest disparity in the GMO topic. Shows how impactful the antiGMO/proOrganic misinformation campaign has been. Will only give "them" more confidence for more misinformation campaigns.

Ok, after like 8 hours of lighting this beast, staying up till 11 last night (huge kudos to +Scott Thompson  for being the iron man wrestling the tree that long) we end up with with a brilliantly lit tree. After a few more hours tonight decorating, the beauty that was the +Courtright's  tree is reborn. It's missing something without the beautiful space the Courtright's built which we all took great pleasure in...but this small emblem lives on.

In light of all the terrible stories of Police Officers abusing authority and worse (much MUCH worse), its good to remember that not all of the people in these roles have forgotten their oath to protect and serve. Firemen mowing lawns, police delivering pizzas...makes you want to celebrate them for that, positive reinforcement for the win!
When something needs to get done, it needs to get done. And it's awfully nice to hear that lately, local law enforcement have been stepping up to help finish jobs that can't finish themselves. Ther...
