Hey +Niantic, how many Pokécoins do we have to pledge to make this worth your while to add as a skin? #PokemonGo

For 90 years, lightbulbs were designed to burn out. Now that's coming to LED bulbs.

I was just remembering the now venerable company up in Hopland: Real Goods. If they are not on top of this situation, I would be surprised.

An effort to create modern laptops that aren’t running the secret Intel Management Engine and its unknown collection of backdoors.
GNU Libreboot. Libreboot is a free BIOS or UEFI replacement (free as in freedom); libre boot firmware that initializes the hardware and starts a bootloader for your operating system. It's also an open source BIOS, but open source fails to promote freedom; please call libreboot free software.

New supervillain threat: blowing up the Sun.

I suspect this is the equivalent of the "can we ignite the atmosphere?" question raised in the Manhattan Project... though I'd want someone to run some detailed simulations to make sure that it can't trigger a coronal mass ejection that would wreck modern day electrical grids before laughing it off completely. But it's a great paper to leave in a supervillain's briefcase when the player characters go snooping!

Coding with building blocks! Still at the “development kit” stage.
Project Bloks is creating a development platform for tangible programming, to help kids develop computational thinking through playful coding experiences.

A cool thing from my colleagues at Google: an app to make it easy for middle-school-and-up types to record data for scientific study. They're partnering with the Exploratorium to make kits for studying things for which your smartphone lacks a sensor.
Science Journal is a tool for doing science with your smartphone. You can u...

Maze of the Blue Medusa is a dungeon. Maze of the Blue Medusa is art. Maze of the Blue Medusa works with your favorite fantasy tabletop RPGs. And Maze of the Blue Medusa is the madly innovative game book from the award-winning Zak Sabbath of A Red & Pleasant Land and Patrick Stuart of Deep Carbon Observatory. Lethal gardens, soul-rending art galleries, infernal machines—Maze of the Blue Medusa reads like the poetic nightmare of civilizations rotted to time, and plays like a puzzle-box built from risk and weird spectacle. Art by Zak Sabbath; text by Patrick Stuart and Zak Sabbath. 
Satyr Press, an imprint of Sator Press, is dedicated to publishing innovative and beautiful tabletop RPG books. Co-edited by Zak Sabbath and Ken Baumann, Satyr's first title is Maze of the Blue Medusa.

A little more information in this article: http://kotaku.com/japanese-politician-campaigns-with-a-cat-1783183084

Sounds like the candidate had previously been a Diet member, and now, after a break, is running again. So that's the most obvious layer on the "he's back".

Some of the best security features are subtly interwoven into the fabric of building design.

They have a goal of increasing Sunnyvale’s canopy cover from 18% to 20% in the next few years, which means planting about 30,000 trees. (For comparison, Palo Alto has 37% canopy cover.) Since green plants do a great job of reflecting infrared, this helps make for cooler summers.

There's a reason I chose our neighborhood - the trees!

A friendly sangha, newly established in its own quarters after many years at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Sunnyvale and recently organized into a nonprofit. Tuesday nights always start with sitting meditation at 7:30, walking meditation at 8:10, and Zen service at 8:20; at 8:30 we move to dharma discussion and spend an hour of freewheeling discussion centered around anything from ancient texts to modern Buddhist writings to dharma talks given by sangha members. Every month, there's an all-day retreat up at Jikoji in the hills above Los Gatos. At the moment, the group is quite small (usually less than a dozen showing up on Tuesday nights). They laugh at my jokes and enjoy the perspective I bring from a science background; the convivial atmosphere has kept me coming back for more than two years now.

A nice little hole-in-the-wall place, so small that the delicious cooking smells permeate the whole room.

Good food, a bit loud, but one of the few sources of Chinese food that uses a cooking oil that doesn’t upset my wife’s stomach.

Plenty of tasty choices, good service, and I can still order favorites that are no longer on the menu. And, of course, superb blueberry coffeecake.
