Restricted From Following

This is something I hadn't come across yet, it says that I'm restricted from following somebody who follows me.

Who can shed light on this?

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist!"

"Education is what people do to you, and learning is what you do to yourself."
"Education is what people do to you, and learning is what you do to yourself."
“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. “Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea. This kind of bottom-up innovation is seen in the most fascinating, futuristic projects...

Drug Unlocks Malleable, Fast-Learning, Child-LIke State In Adult Brain

via +Adam Black 
A way to revert the adult brain to the "plastic", child-like state that enables fast learning by being able to form new connections quickly has been found. A protein expressed in brain cells called PirB in animals and LilrB2 in humans stabilizes neural connections to protect against loss of learned skills or information, and using a molecule called an ectodomain can interfere with its functioning enabling the more "plastic" fast-learning state to return. Ectodomains are membrane protein that normally extend extends through the membrane of a cell into the extracellular space outside the cell.
Professor Carla Shatz of Stanford University and her colleagues have discovered a way to revert an adult brain to the “plastic”, child-like state that is more able to form new connections quickly.  The technical term “plastic” implies the ability to adapt or shape itself to new conditions.  The striking results were revealed through experiments on …

After spilling beer on my laptop Mac Assist told me I would probably need to have my keyboard replaced. He advised me to use the services of a competitor, as they would probably have the parts in stock and he would need to order them, which would mean it would take longer. Not many companies are this honest, and put customer service ahead of earning money. Great service!
