Oh, to be a teen again! Thank to YouTube Space Lab, teenagers could win trips to an astronaut training center in Russia.

"There is a revolution in the way that we think. This is a time of communication, connection and creative collaboration. In the science of today, we become artists. In the art of today, we become scientists. We are not here to question the possible. We are here to challenge the impossible."

Are people that excited about the tech upgrade, or are sales of the iPhone 4S soaring because it's the last phone from Steve Jobs?

Donors Choose! Help Students Learn About Science - my latest at Scientific American Blogs

From now until October 22, Donors Choose is running its yearly Science Bloggers for Students campaign, wherein science bloggers and readers of science blogs donate to support science education in classrooms in low-income neighborhoods across the country. All of the money donated goes directly to the teachers who have requested the funds. This is a very good thing, and I support it.

Remember: Every dollar helps! If all you can afford is $5, then that is $5 closer to the amount the teachers must raise. The thing about Donors Choose is that unless the project becomes fully funded, the teacher won’t be able to access the funds. So a $100 project that has only had $95 given still means $0 to that teacher.

I've pre-selected three projects, all from low-income schools in the Los Angeles area to highlight.

Read about the projects I've highlighted: http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/thoughtful-animal/2011/10/10/donors-choose-help-students-learn-about-science/

What does this mean for the future or online privacy (or lack thereof?)

It means that G+ might be tracked by the government soon. Facebook already employs data mining (by selling users' private info to corporations). Let's hope Google is more honest/ethical.

Story
Introduction
I am passionate about music, storytelling, people and progress. I believe the world is on the cusp of changing for the better.  I believe in the power and beauty of humanity, in spite of our propensity to sometimes wander in fear and complacency.  I believe new opportunities and light are just over the horizon. I am proud to be a member of the media, even though some coverage trends (Paris/Britney/Lindsay) have made me question the trajectory of my career.  I believe readers and viewers have intelligence and depth. I believe they want to see news about innovators, good samaritans, miracle makers and dreamers.  And I believe we can and should deliver it to them.  It’s our job
