From my posts back in July 2011.
CERN and the World Wide Web

I am here at CERN and the Large Hadron Collider experiment in Geneva. For physics there is surely nothing like this anywhere on the planet. Underlying the LHC work is a worldwide "grid" of incredible computational power, the origins of which can be tied to the very spot where the photo accompanying this post was taken. The plaque is on the door of the CERN office where Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau developed what we now know as the World Wide Web. In fact, the original two web servers, developed to facilitate data sharing from particle physics experiments, are still here.

Tesla dips back below GM in terms of market cap.

The electric car maker takes a hit as it talks layoffs and cutbacks, in an attempt at a figment of profitability. Musk says it will be a difficult year.

BTW, if you get a broken window in your Tesla, you could be looking at a couple of months before you get a replacement. And then there is the problem of the rear side window being broken. Apparently thieves use that to get through to the trunk and no alarm is triggered.

Watch for other edtech companies to be impacted by texting charges.

Remind is prominent. It sends huge volumes of texts every day.

As the mobility companies spend big to combat spam, outfits such as Remind are caught in the middle.

Verizon buckles to pressure from #ReverseTheFee and #NotSpam tweets and says it will not proceed with crippling fee on education texting service Remind. Now for Rogers and Bell in Canada.

Venus and Jupiter over the Fraser Valley east of Vancouver. With each day the two planets draw a little closer to each other.
