Can I get a version of this without all the applause so it doesn't take an hour to watch?  I think there's MAYBE 15 min of actual content here.

We need more metrics like this for tracking the actions of our elected representatives.  Think Balances Score Card, but for Gov't!

These ninja skills robots can do awesome stuff.
This is easily one of the most impressive robotics videos that I've ever seen, and that's saying something

And queue Kermit the Frog flailing... "Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!"

Another tech/AI productivity article.  I have not been into the "office" in over week and that's very normal within my line of work.

A random jazz band playing in the street outside of Subterranean in Wicker Park, Chicago... they were actually really good.  I love where I live!

Whether this is true or not, the Boy Scout it me says you shouldn't screw up your environment on ethical grounds alone.  My wife and I were able to give up owning cars in favor of car sharing, biking, walking and public transit b/c we live in a city with good transit infrastructure, but there is no way to conserve our way out of this mess - we have to invent our way out through research in sustainable energy and that research is vastly underfunded.  Hopefully such studies, although a bit sensationalist, will sway some public opinion in the direction of increasing quality research efforts.
Using scientific theories, toy ecosystem modeling and paleontological evidence as a crystal ball, 21 scientists predict we’re on a much worse collision

Update November 2013 Had my Kindle STOLEN from their mailroom. Amazon replaced it, but the office initially wasn't helpful in trying to find it, or admitting that it was even their fault. In fact the property manager got snarky with me and stated they are not responsible for any lost or stolen mail. Gee thanks, so I guess that means you can't help me look for it either. As proof I offered up the fact that UPS had a signature on file for the delivery from the office manager. I even called and talked to the guy who delivered it and he remembered dropping it off b/c it was one of those black Kindle boxes. After all was said and done they said they'd leave the door to the mail room close and lock it. I went in this past weekend, saw the mail room door wide open with not a person in sight. Again, it's impressive how incompetent these people are. ---------------- They can't get their act together. Moved in in May and there were many issues with the apartment (dishwasher had rusty wracks, ice maker didn't work, carpets were not properly cleaned, dryer timer didn't work, the disposal was broken, the garage door open was broken, etc.). It took several rounds of complaining to even get them to come out and look and even more rounds of follow up to get them to complete it. It's September and the ice maker is STILL broken. It's incredible how terrible they are! I am actually astounded they could be this bad at their jobs. I am ticked off enough that I logged on to write a bad review and I am typically a very understand and sympathetic person, but this is ridiculous. We were also welcomed to a nice ANT problem the day we moved in. I had called several weeks before we moved in and asked them to spray for critters. Obviously that never happened either. I also didn't appreciate the fact that they list GARAGE space in their square footage stats. Something they LIED (intentionally or no, they should know what the square footage is in their units... that makes them either liars or incompetent and you should not tolerate either) about to my wife before we leased it and didn't discover until after it was too late (I had to move in sight unseen because we relocated from across the country and my wife was the only one who could see it in person at the time). I've also had to call the cops for a domestic disturbance for someone in the complex... you can't always help or predict that, but it's the first time I've ever had to do that and I lived in downtown Chicago for 6 years before I moved here. My advice, spend your hard earned money elsewhere, this place is laughably terrible.

Extremely bad food. Terrible selection. Everything looks like it is old and left out. Will never, ever return and I would not recommend it to anyone.
