EEEWWWW. Although if it targeted barnacles, I know a lot of companies that would be actively trying to spread it. They might anyway, for zebra mussels.

Todays solar eclipse is taking place in a few hours in Indonesia (check out the Google Doodle that's showing in Indonesia and Australia!). The Exploratorium is running a live stream starting at 5pm PST to cover it and put together an app with streaming / more info. Tune in if you can, it'll be a good preview for the 2017 Eclipse that will cross the US!

If you have a program, local or national, that encourages early STEM education, read the blog post and consider submitting your program to possibly be mentioned in the announcement in April.
The White House is celebrating early STEM learning.

What would you do if you could analyze all the open source code on GitHub?

Happy Luddite day!

On this date 205 years ago, the Luddite riots began in Nottingham, England.  Textile workers and weavers were fearing lost job potential from the textile machines that were sweeping across England in the wake of the Industrial Revolution.  They began organizing raids to break into factories and mills and destroy the equipment inside.

To maintain guerilla-like anonymity, the movement published statements under the authorship of a mythical "General Ludd", who, of course, lived in Sherwood Forest.

This is a useful period to study if you ever (hypothetically) find yourself in the midst of a time in which machines are accomplishing tasks thought originally suitable only for humans, or in which there appears to be widespread unrest stemming from lost manufacturing jobs.

Despite the way "Luddites" is used today, they weren't entirely wrong.

Quick reminder - the deadline to apply to be a GSoC 2016 mentor organization is Friday, Feb 19 at 19:00 UTC. https://g.co/gsoc We're really ... unbending... about late applications so please don't wait until the last minute. No applications will be accepted after the deadline for any reason.

That said - we really hope for lots of applications :)  Participating is a great way to gain new contributors and general awareness of your project.

Great place to stay near the EICC When all the "official" hotels for the conference I was attending were either booked or over my company' travel cap, I choose the Bonham because it was walking distance to the EICC and had good reviews. Very glad I did. When I first arrived and was walking to my room the narrow hallways did not prepare me for the enormous room with a lovely view of the Forth through big, operable windows that I found behind the door to #208. Big comfy bed, stall shower AND deep bathtub - all spotless. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. My room was so quiet at night I assumed the hotel was mostly empty only to find the breakfast room quite full in the mornings. Plus the neighborhood is pleasant to walk through to my workday, and easy to find a cab in if it's really pouring. I hope I get to come back!
