Artificial eyes, plastic skulls: #3D #printing the #human #body
 
"The birth of 3-D scanning technologies combined with organic inks and thermoplastics has enabled the "bioprinting" of a range of human body parts to accommodate a wide range of medical conditions."

#3dprinting #bioprinting  
Scientists are bioprinting human body parts from ears to bones. Here are some the most impressive advances.

Excellent interview with Mario Monti in +Volkskrant this weekend. 
"Are you pleading for a government of technocrats?"
"No, I'm pleading for politicians who understand an economy and work hard for their country instead of their own re-election."
Indeed.

Americans are enthusiastic about the future of #technology , but weary about the developments that are closest. Typical
 
"Overall, respondents to Pew's survey were upbeat about how technology will shape the near future. In the report, 59% of Americans think tech developments will make life in the next half-century better, while only 30% said they will make life worse."

#technology #culture #sociology  
Americans are generally excited about the new technology they expect to see in their lifetimes, but nervous about some advances that may be close to reality.

Northwestern synthetic biology team has created a new technology for modifying human cells to create programmable therapeutics that could travel the body and selectively target cancer and other sites of disease.
 
DNA-biology will become smart. The code of biological machines will be rewritten. Here via Northwestern we see a great step towards that goal.

"A Northwestern synthetic biology team has created a new technology for modifying human cells to create programmable therapeutics that could travel the body and selectively target cancer and other sites of disease."

"The end result is a protein biosensor that sits on the surface of a cell and can be programmed to sense specific external factors. For example, the engineered cell could detect big, soluble protein molecules that indicate that it’s next to a tumor. When the biosensor detects such a factor, it sends a signal into the engineered cell’s nucleus to activate a gene expression program, such as the production of tumor-killing proteins or chemicals."

Well. Predicting technological advances is the same as predicting the rapture (flying saucers picking up people to go to heaven), TED talks are just shite and apparently geeks are not sensitive and thoughtful. 

What a load of crap! I disagree with almost everything he says, but in the interest of showing both sides of the argument I'll share it here

Great cafe. They specialize in Whiskey, have a great collection of single malts. Sunday night after 10pm you can drink them at half price. Also a pretty good collection of beers. And great service

Good, if not spectacular hotel. Service was excellent, Internet connectivity in my room wasn't great though. Clean room, decent size.

Food is great, but the atmosphere is that of your average football stadium: very busy and loud

Good Mexican food. Decor is ok. In general very good service. A plus: it has a basement playroom for kids, so if you're looking for somewhere you can take them along, this is a good place

I use this pizzeria to order pizza's all the time. Usually, good to very good. The del Signore is my personal favorite. Delivery times are usually pretty fast too

Excellent dining for a very reasonable price! The food is at the level of a very good restaurant, yet you can have a 6-course meal for 32 euros. Small details separate it from a top restaurant (e.g. orange juice from a bottle instead of freshly squeezed), but I'd highly recommend it to anyone
