I'll be sad if Google gets rid of Feedburner. And I still love my daily RSS feed reading.

This is awesome. I'm not sure how likely it is to actually happen, but I agree with Neal Stephenson's desire to see ambitious engineering and scientific challenges. 

Novelist Neal Stephenson wants to create a 20-kilometer space tower, which could inspire people to believe in innovation again — but also transform the way we travel in the air and into space.

To this end, Stephenson has teamed up with structural engineer Keith Hjelmstad of Arizona State University in an effort to design and build the incredible space tower. The project is an extension of Stephenson's Hieroglyph story, and the Center for Science and the Imagination — an initiative that's working to bring artists and technologists together and "turn science fiction into reality."

A must read for futurists or anyone who simply loves the idea of thinking about all the amazing things humanity is doing or capable of doing. It is a transcript of a brilliant keynote speech by author Warren Ellis.

"If the future is dead, then today we must summon it and learn how to see it properly.

You can’t see the present properly through the rear view mirror. It’s in front of you. It’s right here.

There are six people living in space right now. There are people printing prototypes of human organs, and people printing nanowire tissue that will bond with human flesh and the human electrical system.

We’ve photographed the shadow of a single atom. We’ve got robot legs controlled by brainwaves. Explorers have just stood in the deepest unsubmerged place in the world, a cave more than two kilometres under Abkhazia. NASA are getting ready to launch three satellites the size of coffee mugs, that will be controllable by mobile phone apps.

Here’s another angle on vintage space: Voyager 1 is more than 11 billion miles away, and it’s run off 64K of computing power and an eight-track tape deck.

Casting rumors for the Neuromancer film: Mark Wahlberg as Case and Liam Neeson as Armitage. Huh, could be interesting.

I want. I am so ready to ditch Comcast for Google Fiber, if only it existed where I am (or anywhere outside Kansas City, MO for that matter).

H+: A new trailer for a new web series

I'm looking forward to watching this. Not only because it honestly looks interesting, but I really like seeing real production values being applied to web series.

Unbelievably cool. Ron Perlman rocks.

Stories like this are just wonderful. I love it.

Like the Google+ Events fiasco, this is an example of what happens when a bit too much focus is put on shipping a change and not enough focus on testing and user experience.

I guess this is one way to help your kid grow up bilingual. Maybe not the most practical language, but still...
