Boston Dynamics does incredible robotics. This robot, the Sand Flea, can launch itself a couple dozen feet into the air, to scale obstacles.

Boston Dynamics also does the Big Dog (an agile quadruped: Boston Dynamics Big Dog (new video March 2008)) and PETMAN (an agile and flexible biped: PETMAN).

Sebastian Thrun on his transition from teaching 200-person to 100k-person classes and why this excites him. Thrun recently started the online university Udacity; previously, he was a professor at Stanford and helped push self-driving cars forward at Stanford and Google.

At the end I learned that Thrun is co-teaching Udacity's first course, CS 101, with +David Evans! They start February 20th. http://goo.gl/3EQYU is a promo video for the course, featuring Evans, Thrun, and Sergey Brin. Course title: Intro to CS, building a search engine.
