I just observed a black bird a bit smaller than a robin carrying a small object pursued by two robins. The black bird would stop and peck at what it was carrying until harassed into flying a short distance by the robins. I think I was observing nest predation, but I was surprised by the size of the predator given that what it was carrying was a fifth to a quarter its size. It was an obvious struggle for it to fly carrying it. I could not tell what species it was. It was an interesting way start the morning off.

Fabrication using metal isn't new but this machine looks really interesting, including titanium fab and improved abilitity to change materials. I had a number of projects come through where this would have been of interest. I just wonder what costs for the machine and what is the cost per use.

one of my new favorite photos - the caption does not say for which tasks in film and TV, so I must assume camera operator

Interesting article - Do Learners Really Know Best? Urban Legends in Education Paul A. Kirschnera & Jeroen J. G. van Merriënboerb 2013. It hits many of the big myths about learners that are spread without careful examination of the evidence.

Never do the math. I just realized that I have been using PhotoShop (original spelling) for 24 years, since version 0.68

Great analysis
 
I love how @mathbabe schools @natesilver over the free pass he gives to financial industry in his book. Her argument: their models actually worked; they meant to screw us.

This is why, whenever there is a story about "Woz wants a new _____", I take it as a given.
