so with the reddit hoopla. I've discovered Empeopled... seems a bit like reddit, AND a bit like early google plus. Not sure if I like it yet, But I already like it better than Tsu, which is the closest fit, I suppose. and I've been mad at G+ for some time making it hard for me to see posts in my stream by" most recent" instead of the abomination "best of"


Now if only they brought back a decent, federated version of google wave, designed for gamers to run online games, pundits to discuss armchair philosophy, and to assist creative types in running collaborative projects. not to mention "check this out" posts like I tend to do.

I miss google wave. Almost as much as I miss shouldexist.org (way back in the day)

If you had a machine that let you make a plant from scratch, something like a CRISPR based genome editor, but hooked up to a powerful computer that kept you from building a grey goo disaster or evil spores of doom, what would you make?

Something that makes ambergris in a nutshell? oranges that grow happily on snow covered morning glory vines?  olives that can be pressed for gasoline? A berry bush that makes your own personal Dr. prescribed  medicine?

Lets just go with plants right now, instead of people, animals, bacteria, yeasts, or molds. (all of which CRISPR techniques can now modify)

What magical plant do you want to own? Or at least see exist?

Okay, I have been reading a lot about basic income and robots removing jobs.  People see this either as a disaster or a wonderful thing. 

So I'm asking you, in a specific anecdotal, non scientific way... what you would do if your job was gone, and yet you still had around the same income?

So how would you live if robots took away your job, but left you with both time and a small but steady amount of money?

Once this is out, I can picture a google store devoted to hardware for it. 

Right after that I picture people will use modular processors, memory, sensors, bluetooth, wifi, and sim cards in things not even remotely phone like.

Right after that, this google hardware store will sell modules that were never intended for a phone.

I can picture for instance quadrotor propellers designed to snap onto a frame along with a wifi control, a camera, an accelerometer, and a processor, and you have a snap together little flying robot using exactly the same frame as this phone.

Could be, but when you phrase the headline as a question, people make up their mind before they read it. Usually as "No"

But what they did here, was engineer a yeast that can make something very much like spider silk, and that's pretty damned neat.

So I took a  six hour car trip to Idaho to see my parents. Before I left, I picked up a copy of "Ready Player One", narrated by Will Wheaton. I rarely read fiction anymore, spending most of my reading on websites and articles and stuff friends have wrote. So this was a rare treat.

And what a treat.

It's like the writer is pulling my favorite childhood memories right out of my head, mounting them into display cases with perfect lighting and gorgeous framing, and presenting them back to me one at a time by fashion models on a runway with perfectly timed soundtracks.

Every other sentence is hitting me in the feels.

Okay, so I see this video, and decide to check if anyone else has shared it before I share it myself, because I saw the same video a couple days ago, so I know I couldn't be the first, and I'd rather boost signal than dilute it.

I paste the url from youtube and it gives some other posts in my stream, but when I click "most recent" I get  "no results" and I have to open a new browser to even get back my first search results

Dammit, I NEVER want "best of" I only want "most recent"  and if I could figure out a way to make sure my stream and search WASN'T being censored and manipulated by "helpful" algorithms, I'd be happier.

I paste the url from youtube and it gives some other posts in my stream, but when I click "most recent" I get  "no results" and I have to open a new browser to even get back my first search results

Dammit, I NEVER want "best of" I only want "most recent"  and if I could figure out a way to make sure my stream and search WASN'T being censored and manipulated by "helpful" algorithms, I'd be happier.

"Best of" means I have no control. I was looking for the guy with the most links so I could see his ripples and find out who shared the video first. I can't do that anymore. ___
