Fight the anarchy if you can. Someone brought to life the XKCD's web comic #724 Tetris Hell.

Can anyone beat my non-record of ZERO?

Donut Earth?
Very good writeup on stable alternative shapes of planets.

"According to the laws of physics, a planet the shape of a donut, or toroid, could actually exist — but it's extremely unlikely to ever form naturally. But what if an advanced alien civilization decided to build one? What properties would a toroid-Earth exhibit? And what would life be like?"

I hope some of this leads to improvement of the various models going around. If as stated the big bang left echoes it will increase chances of finding improved energy sources.

Google Installed New Motorola Logo Only 48 Days Ago
Only 48 days ago Google was installing its modified logo on Motorola w/ added Google colors. Now they've sold off Motorola Mobility to Lenovo for $3B.

Here's my picture of them installing the new Motorola logo near Google's main campus.

See which web companies comply with industry-wide best-practices regarding encryption and security. Your privacy, not just from snooping governments, but even from intermediate players like your ISP are being disregarded by many large web companies.

#privacy   #encryption   #eff   #nsa   #google   #microsoft  
We’ve asked the companies in our Who Has Your Back Program what they are doing to bolster encryption in light of the NSA’s unlawful surveillance of your communications. We’re pleased to see that four companies—Dropbox, Google, SpiderOak and Sonic.net—are implementing five out of five of our best practices for encryption.
