"All her life she had believed in something more, in the mystery that shape-shifted at the edge of her senses. It was the flutter of moth wings on glass and the promise of river nymphs in the dappled creek beds. It was the smell of oak trees on the summer evening she fell in love, and the way dawn threw itself across the cow pond and turned the water to light." -Eowyn Ivey

New post by me.
In which I celebrate being out of the grading cave by writing a book report and watching Dirty Dancing clips on YouTube and not citing references for a damn one of my statements.

I have two panels proposed for SXSW and SXSWedu, respectively - but 30% of their chances rely on public voting! Please consider taking a few minutes to give each of my proposals a thumbs-up. (Super quick account creation, then just two clicks on two thumbs!). Proposal 1: https://lnkd.in/eswY3mN Proposal 2: https://lnkd.in/eEzU3Tg

Oh, right, forgot about Google+. 

Here's my post on what predicts scary movie liking, a few days late!

My friends are getting both an email and a notification whenever I share a photo, even though I do not click the "also send an email" option. It doesn't happen when I share links or write a new status, just when I upload a photo. How do I change this? I don't see anything obvious in my settings - they all appear to be about how I receive notifications from my friends, not how they receive them from me. Help!

GECKO-INSPIRED ADHESIVE CAN STICK 700 POUNDS TO A WALL

A team of scientists at the University of Massachusetts has developed a new, reusable adhesive based on the feet of the gecko – the lizard that licks its own eyeballs and climbs up walls. Around 60% of gecko species have adhesive toe pads and these pads were the inspiration for Geckskin – a device that can attach and detach from materials and surfaces repeatedly.

Led by professor of polymer science and engineering Al Crosby and professor of biology Duncan Irschick, the team designed Geckskin for performance – you can suspend up to 700lbs in weight with it and it can be made from everyday items such as nylon, bathroom caulking, carbon fibre or cotton. Most things adhere to it and it adheres to most things – it's like flypaper for elephants.

Crosby and Irschick say it's not about making a new material but making old materials perform in new ways. Geckskin is detachable and attachable.
