If you can't eliminate meetings, this can make some of them better.
The best meetings are face-to-face—we can brainstorm openly, collaborate closely and make faster decisions. But these days, we often connect with each other from far-flung locations, coordinating time zones and dialing into c...

“nearly one out of every two people on the Internet visits YouTube”
Why not two out of two?
Anyway, very cool milestone and the Wired article includes a nice bucket of sloths for you.

Ito hopes to move closer towards his goal of "a world with seven billion teachers", where smart crowds, adopting a resilient approach and a rebellious spirit, solve some of the world's great problems. His is a world of networks and ecosystems, in which unconstrained creativity can tackle everything from infant mortality to climate change.

Here's HD video footage taken from a commercial satellite orbiting Earth... very cool!
I'm glad to see commercial space doing well, especially since Steve Stolper was part of this effort.

YouTube announced some big changes to clean up its comments. Sounds great, but apparently not everyone is happy about it ;-)
 
So, it appears that +The Colbert Report has decided to have a little fun with us. (Clip from the show here: http://goo.gl/EMdDbn) He's asked his viewers to post the following message on YouTube channels around the world, in protest against the imminent threat of actual conversations happening on YouTube.

I’m sorry, Mr. Colbert, but I can’t quite hear you over the sound of our spam filters. You’re just going to have to try a little harder if you want to get millions of people to say identical, contentless things on the Internet. In the meantime, check out this cool channel, buy cialis cheap & legal: http://goo.gl/uDrrPb. Have a nice day.

3-D printer shop in Pasadena has a 4-hour intro class

3D printing is quickly becoming one of the most influential technologies to emerge in the 21st century. It's also one of the most fun and most useful technologies because you can create a whole slew o...

Yes. Conveniently, a lot of email lists I don't want to be on just sent me unsubscribe links (along with a Happy New Year wish).

Nice job +SpaceX, keep up the good work! I'm kinda glad one of the engines failed, so you could show off your redundant systems :-)
The Dragon spacecraft is on its way to the International Space Station this morning and is performing nominally following the launch of the SpaceX CRS-1 official cargo resupply mission from Cape Canav...

Join kids around the world in making October 6 an "Global Day of Play" by finding (or hosting) a Cardboard Challenge event near you. This beautiful video includes +Rob Manning talking about making cardboard spacecraft as a kid, and now he's made real spacecraft like the +Mars Rover Opportunity and MSL.
