New (epic) blog post on "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Recurrent Neural Networks" http://karpathy.github.io/2015/05/21/rnn-effectiveness/ was immense fun to write

Interesting article saying that there's evidence that having largely open borders is good for the economy, even in the short term.
Even those of us who favor a path to citizenship are not going far enough, because we are mired in zero-sum thinking.

Just when you bought a new 3D printer thinking it was the state-of-the-art, the goal posts have just shifted - considerably!

Watch this awesome video of a fully-created object rise from a tank of resin. Will remind you of the Terminator scene, where the robot rises from a tank of liquid metal. Talk about science imitating fiction!

“‘These droplets sense one another, they move and interact, almost like living cells,’ said Manu Prakash, an assistant professor of bioengineering and senior author of an article published in Nature.“
A puzzling observation, pursued through hundreds of experiments, has led Stanford researchers to a simple yet profound discovery: under certain circumstances, droplets of fluid will move like performers in a dance choreographed by molecular physics.

I'm delighted by this tiny thing. No HDMI output like the Raspberry Pi has, so it's more like an Arduino nano. But with a 5x5 bank of LEDs on board so it's easy to get started doing something fun.

I guess it can be run off a battery after you've programmed it, so you can wear it or put it in robots. And the BBC is giving them to every child in year 7 this autumn. Awesome!

A sheet of a special material that scatters blue light in the same way as the sky. An LED lamp 1m above it, to give a feeling of depth. With careful design it makes the illusion of a natural skylight, including a visible sun. Clever!

Edit: I had a look at the geometry. If there's nothing tricksy like a Fresnel lens or something then in some of their promotional images the lamp is much further than 1m: http://imgur.com/a/UtbxP

We need hardware we can trust. Chips that we can be confident don't have malicious payloads. RMS is right that the answer is free and libre hardware designs but this battle may be much harder than that for free software.
 
RMS on Why We Need Free Digital Hardware Designs - http://www.wired.com/2015/03/need-free-digital-hardware-designs/ just don't called it open source hardware....
The concept we need is that of a free hardware design that permits users to use the design and to copy and redistribute it, with or without changes.
