Here's why I don't believe in apologies: there's no reason to believe the library will act any different in the future.

A more appropriate response in this case - indeed, what I should think would be the minimal acceptable response - is that the library indicate in plain concrete language what they will do ensure that this sexist bullshit never happens again, and what consequences they should expect to accrue if it does. For instance, the public termination of employment of anyone caught behaving in such a despicable way.

Evolution likes us tall and smart, but doesn't much care if we get sick, so long as we can reproduce.
Assuming the findings are verified, this underscores the differences between nature's goals and what we have come to believe is important.
One could argue that nature evolved us to outperform itself.
(Not that #evolution has any intent, of course.)

Let's help save Greece

This is such a crazy idea, I can't help but get behind it: crowdfunding a bailout for Greece.

Let's stop dicking around, people.  Sure, the Greek governments over the last few decades have borked things up.  So what?  If this crisis keeps growing, the Greek people will suffer miserably, and the ripple effects could well spread very, very far.  (Like the Dow's recent 350 point drop.)

Will it work?  I don't know.  But I'm not going to sit around with my thumb up my ass and let bureaucrats and politicians ruin the cradle of Western civilization.

Let's all help out.  I'm giving 10 EUR.

It appears that Google has removed the autohashtag feature (i.e., that G+ automatically added a few hashtags to your posts) at just about the same time as it introduced collections.

As for collections... I'm unconvinced. At the moment, when I look at collections of people in my circles, I see a mangled mess of utterly disjointed piles of posts.  Not to say that each collection isn't very well curated - many are.  But when looking at all the collections of all the people in many circles....

Three rules to create vision (in a fruit fly)

At the right level of abstraction, one finds surprising simplicity in how a brain develops.  Here's an instance of that.
What I found most interesting was this: "...growth cones do a better job finding the right target when they can detect one another converging from different directions than when they rely solely on a signal from the targets themselves."  That is, the growth cones + target together form a system that seeks a "stable" configuration, and that system operates better than just a cone and target alone.

I wouldn't be surprised if we eventually discover that the direction and speed of growth is oriented along some chemical gradient in the medium supporting both targets and cones.
