This was a fun read and it's near future dystopia was an interesting take on the genre. 
<p>In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade's devot...

Great design and use of my personal favorite projection.
Every year the Lunar New Year festivities mark the largest population movement in the world. The holiday is traditionally a time for family gatherings as well as an opportunity for city breaks, and this year authorities estimate 2.8 billion journeys will be undertaken.

BLOG: Remembering Leonard Nimoy

Normally, I’m pretty good with words. At the moment, I’m not at my best, for reasons I hope are self evident. However, I’m going to do my best to remember someone who gave more to my life than he ever knew. I never got to know Leonard Nimoy the way my…

So much saved and yet so much lost.
 
Long term storage of digital data is a serious problem, and the web is a leaky sieve that won't keep much over the long term. One remedy is the WayBack machine, but there could be others. This very important article in the New Yorker explains why.

We installed the top 10 apps from Download.com, and you’ll never believe what happened! Well… I guess maybe you might have a good guess. Awful things. Awful things are what happens. Join us for the fun!

So it looks like in the future our workstations will have all programs running all the time.
Vast amounts of 3D XPoint memory, always loaded and ready to go, represent a fundamental change in how PCs handle data. Assuming all goes to plan. We break down the possibilities.

I don't know if you or Cheryl remember me. I am Cynthia Rafters's daughter. I would like to speak with you or Cheryl about something if possible?

Helpful in architectural designing, right? One problem that an architect usually gets is when his client wants natural skylight even though it is impossible because of its location. So, I guess we're overlooking its real potential.
