This is so cool: a digital calculator made from dominoes! Also a great lesson on how circuits and signals work. I'd say this is a great way to teach kids, but I'm an adult and thought it was awesome, so let's just say it's a great way to teach. Awesome job!

This is super-cool. Keyless SSL lets edge devices terminate secure connections (think security appliances, CDNs, etc) without having to have the private keys of their customers. Huge step forward for the public cloud.

This one weird comic will explain everything that's wrong with news sites.
OK. +Randall Munroe is fucking brilliant.

Also, the Internet makes me lose faith in humanity.

That's really the most interesting part of this latest revelation: the sudden indignation by leaders when it's them personally (instead of just their mere subjects) being spied on.

"Note how leaders such as Chancellor Angela Merkel reacted with basic indifference when it was revealed months ago that the NSA was bulk-spying on all German citizens, but suddenly found her indignation only when it turned out that she personally was also targeted."
"I'd love to know what ways, specifically, General Alexander has in mind for empowering the US government to 'come up with a way of stopping' the journalism on this story. Whatever ways those might be, they are deeply hostile to the US constitution – obviously. What kind of person wants the government to forcibly shut down reporting by the press?"
