Really funny. Kind of a more intelligent  descendant of  the old chestnut about cars-as-operating-systems.

To me, this is a story about metaphorical mammals running circles around dinosaurs, but you can also see this as Silicon valley vs East Coast, computer culture vs aerospace culture, and sadly, women expected to be nicer than guys. If you read the quote you'll think, "nice zinger!" but the headline says "tetchy." To the FT writers: it's simple dude, just mentally switch the genders before you add the adjectives.
A senior executive of SpaceX, the space launch provider, has mocked the company in charge of the US’s most sensitive satellite launches, in a tetchy congressional hearing dominated by fears about US access to space. Gwynne Shotwell, SpaceX’s chief

Something new every day... the Pink Screen of Death. Running ( dying, really) on a PPC Mac Mini running an old Debian, hardware possibly 10 years old. We use these as legacy build machines.

I don't know who to send this to, so sharing. An interesting useful idea, and I liked the pages of school groups using related tech to map local geography.
 
 OpenDroneMap, which previously would just create point clouds from drone images, now also produces:
* Meshes!
* Textured meshes!
* Georeferenced textured meshes
* Georeferenced orthophotos! 
What I want to do OpenDroneMap (http://opendronemap.github.io/odm/) is a tool to postprocess sma...

Interesting vid from industrial robotics OEM.
For the BionicANTs, Festo has not only technically implemented the delicate anatomy of ants, but also their cooperative behaviour.

sure sounds great. Ubuntu 14.04 platform.
 
DeepLearning going main stream for good. NVIDIA releases DIGITS: a web based Deep Learning training System based on Caffe: http://devblogs.nvidia.com/parallelforall/digits-deep-learning-gpu-training-system/ https://github.com/NVIDIA/DIGITS
The hottest area in machine learning today is Deep Learning, which uses Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) to teach computers to detect recognizable concepts in data. Researchers and industry practitioner...

Close to home, this. No Romans or aqueducts ( or water) involved.

Dept. of Stuff I know Nothing About:
Rampant dissatisfaction among R&D scientists at Big Pharma. Hard for an outsider to judge whether this is a disruptive change toward some newer-faster-smaller way to do the science, or a general dumbing-down of drug process. Or should the gov take care of the science? Anyway good comments too.

Half-million PI2's sold in two weeks. 1) thats 50X what I would have guessed, 2) there are a lot of hackers/makers/developers out there, 3) tiny companies can make and sell millions of products.
Summary:Within two weeks, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has shifted 500,000 of its new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B boards, helping make it the fasted selling British computer.

interesting. no video of mid-air gesturing?
 
You've got to watch the movie art the end to appreciate all the uses for this $2 Microchip that adds gesture recognition to any device, eliminating the need for touchscreen, knobs and every other control surface, even mechanical buttons.
With the wave of a hand, Microchip's GestIC controls anything -- tablet to light bulb. Microchip claims its GestIC turns any device into a 3D mid-air gesture recognizer.
