Another great example of why the @B612foundation mission is so imperative! Support Sentinel! http://ow.ly/vXrMV
Last night, yet another eye-searing blue meteor screamed across the dark Russian sky. Lucky for us, Russia is the land of dashcams, meaning that yet again, we get a driver's seat view of the phenomenon. How do you say "wow" in Russian?

+James Karaganis if neither Adobe or Corel can be bothered to put an autosave into their software, used by most of the world, and at versions ~17 and ~13 respectively, why hold artists to a higher standard?

Science. Marketing. Big business. Humor.
It is like someone especially wrote this just for me!
LED lighting is great. The right bulb gives the same warm incandescent glow you love from a fraction of the energy. But there's a downside: while LEDs make cities look awesome, the most common type of LED lighting dims the ultraviolet trick laundry detergents use to make white clothes look whiter. The future is bright, but it's also kind of dingy.

There are three stories and only three stories. 

I kid. But actually, if you look at most of the blockbuster movies, especially those from Disney, these lines will feel fairly familiar to you. This is Vonnegut's take, and I highly encourage you to follow the link and watch the four minute video of him explaining these three lines. It's excellent delivery and very funny. 

Personally, I like the Hero's Journey, as outlined by Joseph Campbell, but you can see that there are a lot of similarities:

I once heard there are only two stories:
1) Boy goes off on an adventure.
2) A stranger comes to town.
But that these are actually the same story, told from different points of view.
