This is freakishly awesome.
A telescopic contact lens could help millions of people around the world who live with age-related macular degeneration see better.

The first computer I could ever lay sole claim to was one of the ancients.  This was about two years ago, and it was a used laptop that had refused to continue functioning for one of our neighbors.  512 megabytes of ram, a single core processor that would not even dream of a gigahertz.  Needless to say it did not perform well with any recent installs of Windows or Ubuntu, and so very slowly I learned how to trim down my install.

I don't use that laptop any more, I've since then gotten a powerful little new one.  But today I still appreciate the elegance of a lightwight system.

My current setup is ArchLinux with OpenBox or Spectrwm depending on my mood.  It serves its purpose well, and leaves plenty of power for where I really want it.

The first laptop I put Linux on was a P5 900mhz, with a 1 gig HD... Took me forever to get Slackware trimmed down to install on this, and I learned to love BlackBox

A nice guy gets medical treatment that could save his life, science gets another sample in the analysis of cancer, and the internet gets a pretty awesome comic sequence!
 
And here's the promised video of the promised drawing of the impending ass-kicking Jay's cancer is going to get.

It's 2:16 seconds long, but the artsy part is a one-minute time-lapse that spans about three hours of work across four hours Sunday evening.

I'm just happy with google Drive.
I wouldn't mind being invited to join drop box though.

The DMCA causes more problems than it solves.  Whether or not you can still watch the video with one more click, The Piano Guys should be able to show their own video on their own website - whether or not they signed with Sony Music Entertainment.

I should probably post more, but day after day I neglect it.  Anyways, the most recent post at Computer Literacy highlights an awesome new short-film done completely in Blender.

Okay, so I made a sort-of awesome survival map for MineCraft.  I think it's a bit challenging, but that's just my opinion.  If you'd like to try your skills against my best attempts to kill you, here: http://goo.gl/WTXSR

Rules:
No breaking blocks.
No placing blocks.
Anything else is okay (breaking/placing torches, signs, etc).

Well, it's actually more of an obstacle course, but I am still proud of it.

So the fire seems not to have spreaded last night, and the smoke didn't flood the Utah valley like they forecasted it would.  But the sunrise does turn the smoke a nice shade of orange.

Erm...we got some smoke. I have an asthma-induced cough from it. It sucks. :)
