Neuroscientist Adrian Owen has figured out a way to communicate with Scott Routley, who had suffered severe brain damage and was thought to be in a vegetative state. Using an fMRI machine, Owen and Routley have worked out a way for Routley to answer questions using specific memories to mean 'yes' or 'no'.

After spending some time asking questions such as 'Is the sky blue?' Adrian Owen determined that Routley was able to understand the questions and answer correctly. Importantly, Routley was asked if he was in pain, to which he gave the answer of 'No'. Family members who had been in a nearby room were informed of the answer that was given.

Parents who oppose vaccines are not only misinformed, they're spoiled, having grown up in a world that stands behind the berms built by the scientists and vaccine developers who came before them.

I'm not even angry... This news totally skipped the outrage stage, and went straight to zero fucks given about the Oculus. That's ok, AR is looking pretty cool too, I'll just reallocate my excitement into that for now.
 
Sorry for the consecutive posts, but these are rare moments on the internet and I like to soak them in

It's a bit old news, but somehow I missed this entirely until now. I can't really express how much I'd love to see this made into a game. It would likely lead to me actually going out and purchasing a Nintendo console.

"Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link. 

Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.

This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.

Hope you like it!"

This fairly accurately sums up my view on surveillance. The change is inevitable, if we reject it, we will only slow it slightly at the price of having any level of control we the people might have over it. We have no choice but to accept it, and fight to make it into something that can be beneficial to the general populace.
 
I say we need to find ways to make constant surveillance work because it is not going away. My thoughts in a controversial Wired opinion piece:

I usually only get computer parts here, their prices have typically been cheaper than Newegg with the exception of a cpu that was a whopping $5 cheaper online, didn't bother with price matching as we were already saving a couple hundred on the other parts that trip.
