NFL players' head injuries and concussions apparently caused some dementia which has manifested itself in higher suicide rates. Now, a small study concludes that even young women players are affected by soccer (aka "football" to the rest of the world) "head butts." Clearly, more study is needed.

Last weekend I had my first Windows 8 hands-on experience. A friend installed it to see how it would act and behave. It wasn't as bad as I had feared (coming out like GNOME Shell was my worst fear) and I could probably work with it. However, other than updated driver support, possibly longer support, and much lower entrance cost ($40 upgrade) what reason/motivation is there to upgrade a desktop/laptop without touch features? Why wouldn't I just use an Android tablet?

The University of Minnesota needs to prepare for the move of undergraduate education online. Then it will have to compete on quality, unlike today where it competes on USN&WR metrics.

I was reading a blog recently on edX a collaboration between MIT and Harvard for a similar setup. At least they are moving in the right direction! Take a look if you haven't seen it yet. http://www.edxonline.org/

Amanda Palmer has an Interesting take on changing the model by which artistry is funded. It strikes at the heart of the music publishing business, almost advocating a return to the way artistry used to be paid, by commissioning of work. Is crowdsourcing a viable business model, or will it be the only business model?

I barely touched computers until my senior year in high school (those were the Apple ][ days). We were too poor to buy one. With the $35 Raspberry Pi in wide availability, does this make teaching the discipline of coding reasonable for elementary schools (not to train engineers, but to teach discipline of thought)?

In the MOT program, we discussed mobile patents and the '949 patent specifically. The mobile space is a minefield of patent lawsuits. Hopefully, this action by the USPTO will restore some sanity.

It may grant some breathing room to big and definitely the small guy.

Brilliant TED Talk that uses Apple and Tivo as examples of answering the question "Why are some innovators more successful than others?"
