They've worked out how to implement my decarbonisation plan.
Researchers from George Washington University believe that they can solve climate change and create cheap, super-strong carbon fibers in a single swoop.

Very clever use of maths to remove foreground obstacles in images.

Throw enough smart people and CPU at a problem and you can solve nearly anything.

Would have preferred to have remained 100% software, but the customers want a total solution. So we are now shipping hardware too.

Very Good! Actually, that is the ONLY time travel story that I have EVER believed. This breaks my rule "never play with time travel" they never work. And crap, this one did! This changes my whole view on time travel.
And I agree with +Robert Watkins the ending needed to be with her consequences.
Last thing, I can't place to guy to save my life. I can only see him wearing glasses... What did he play in?

Bluetooth Low Energy beacons with Eddystone. More meaningful data points from which your device can gain context. And more points of functionality for your apps.

That really tall Aussie that won't shut up about science and tech
Introduction
I love big ideas and I love the challenge of tackling them and meeting other similarly minded people. 

I have always tended to treat everything as a puzzle and am thankful that since the universe is infinite I'm never going to run out of them.

I'm also really thankful for living in such exciting times. We see more change today that at any other point in history. And the rate of change is accelerating. Big things are possible with only small amounts of leverage.

If you are a fan of the Ghibli movies then this is a must see. Original story boards, movies, art work and a museum that caters for the kids in all of us.

Great hotel. Make sure you book for dinner at Bazaar, it's $70/head but you won't regret it. Just go with an empty belly.

Always a pleasure. Right next to GOMA, the state library and the Science Centre too, so you can take in several sights in one day if you have the stamina.

An awesome temple. Massive and grand. Some parts were being restored while we were there. Absolutely loved the dragon fountain.

A most serene and spacious place. It was a great base of operations for seeing Kyoto and was extremely restful at the end of a day of sight seeing.
