I thought this article on artificial neural networks was really interesting, and the gorgeous, psychedelic (and hi-res!) images produced by the various network layers are simply AMAZING.  Main article is below, hi-res gallery is here:

You can opt out of junk mail and credit offers through this site.  It took maybe 5 minutes to create an account and to opt out of everything.  If you choose to opt out of credit offers it takes you to OptOutPrescreen.com, which is a legit site (I looked into it).  The opt out isn't permanent but does last 3-5 years.  Well worth the effort IMO.

“It is Coming Back to Haunt Your Dreams” There are few films that are created that scare the hell out of people as Steven King’s “It”. This film brought to the foreground a whole new level of terror for people, and helped fueled the world’s fear of clowns. The book was one of King’s best. […]

A long but interesting look at the history of fiat currencies and why they all eventually fail. "No rational economy can be centrally planned."
Government mandated fiat currency simply does not work in the long run. We have empirical evidence galore – every fiat currency system in history has failed, except the current one, which has not failed yet. The modern fiat money system is more ingeniously designed than its historical predecessors and has a far greater amount of accumulated real wealth to draw sustenance from, so it seems likely that it will be relatively long-lived as far as fia...

It seems it's no longer a question of if Hyperloop will become a reality, but when.  This is an exciting time to be alive!
Have you heard of the Hyperloop? It's the concept described as "a cross between a Concorde, a railgun and a bullet train." Think: Los Angeles to

Some easily exploitable and critical flaws lie in Apple's desktop and mobile operating systems, and people's Facebook, Evernote and bank credentials could be in danger, researchers claim. It appears Apple is making life a little too easy for hackers, claims one iOS and Mac OS X expert.

Thanks to +Maria Simonton for sharing this, beautiful.

So when surfer/photographer/Stay Wild contributor Jonathan Nimerfroh showed us these sweet shots he captured in Nantucket we had to share. When we asked Jonathan what the fawk this was all about he said, "Just been super cold here. The harbor to the main land is frozen solid. No boats running.But yea, the day after I took these it actually froze up the sho...

The President of the United States can mass-message the entire phone-carrying nation at the same time whenever he deems it necessary, as a Wall Street Journal video reminded us today.
