Check out g9.js, a new graphics library for building interactive graphics. It uses machine learning techniques behind the scenes to figure out how to modify the data— so you never have to explicitly write an event handler.

Here's my new project, which won 2nd place at MIT's largest annual hackathon a few months ago. Both Ocrad.js and Inpaint.js were building up to this, a browser extension which transparently runs computer vision algorithms on images that you mouse over, so that you can interact with their contents as if they're plain text. 

Does anyone have an invitation to Github's Atom Text Editor to spare? I'd really love to be able to try it out.

One of my friends built a pretty cool OCR-based image search engine for NodeKnockout called Imdex.

Has anyone recently tried to export their data from Facebook? It has consistently failed for me, saying "Sorry, but your download generation failed. Visit your account settings if you wish to request a new download." for at least the past few weeks. I found the following fairly active thread on Facebook's community forum which was posted over a month ago.

I know there's quite a bit of angst Google's getting with regard to data portability given the vocal response to the death of Reader, but Google Takeout is light years ahead of Facebook's now essentially neglected data export service.
