Would it be possible to open up some API allowing developers to create a notification extensions, to for instance Google Chrome? Content within the rooms on Crypho is often "forgotten" when users are not pulled back in using notifications. Thanks!

Is Sweden the best place to start your start-up? "Every single year for 7-10 years there's been one $B company created from the Nordics."@JohanBrenner at @creandum by @LiamT Tung via @ZDNet

Hi folks,

I just found out that my department (Computational Science at NREL http://www.nrel.gov/ in Golden, Colorado) is looking for a
"Scientific Python Applications Programmer".
It's a contract position (that's how most of us start here.)

Here is a link to the job description:
  http://www.redcanyonsoftware.com/jobs/index.php?id=33

If you or someone you know may be interested, please send
a resume. I used to contract through Red Canyon, and they
were pretty reasonable, and NREL is not a bad place to work.

An Opportunity of a life time. I don't know about working there. But I've always wanted to go to Colorado and start a new life but just never got there. 😌 Peace

Diplomatic yet clear statement from Obama on blasphemy at the UN. Happy to see some sanity on this issue.
 
It's always a bit sobering to realize that not everyone doesn't buy the "sticks and stones" approach to insults. Obama said "get over it" in a much, much more diplomatic way than I ever could!

Skeuomorphic design is probably the worst current trend in design. I cannot think of one single way in which it doesn't suck.  
 
Bask in the newly-abundant awfulness of skeuomorphic design inspired by the iPad. Legions of app developers have completely forgotten the lessons of Microsoft Bob.

Wow. That sounds like the 00's and a ton of pain for the poor user.
