Reinventors Network830,881Here's a really hard problem that Larry Lessig is not sure how to solve: "Let's assume we've got a fundamentally corrupt government, in the precise sense that the dependence upon "funders" corrupts the intended dependence upon "the people alone," and that too many within that system are too deeply connected to it to push for its change. That means any effective movement for change has got to come from the outside. How would a grassroots movement in the Internet Age create the pressure such a change would require? How would the people who brought the Internet to scale tackle this problem?" Joining Larry in his effort is a veritable who's who of internet know-how, the folks who have built & scaled networks for change: internet pioneer Tim O'Reilly, Change.org Founder Ben Rattray, Moveon.org Executive Director Anna Galland, VC Brad Burnham, Executive Producer of TED Media June Cohen, Bram Cohen, creator of BitTorrent, and Markos Moulitsas, Founder of Daily Kos. Reinvent Money in Politics2013-07-11 20:00:00191

L'Oréal plans to start 3D-printing human skin. "Since it nixed animal testing in 2003, the French cosmetic firm has relied on models of "reconstructed human epidermis" -- essentially skin samples grown from post-surgical donor tissues -- to evaluate the safety and efficacy of its products. Although L'Oréal's dedicated lab facilities in Lyon grow roughly 54 square feet -- or about a full cow's worth -- of skin a year, the company wants to speed up and even automate the process. That's where Organovo comes in. The San Diego -- based startup made headlines in 2014 for creating the world's first functional liver using three-dimensional printing."

At Least There Is Symmetry

If an atom absorbs a photon, it’s obvious that the photon must haven been emitted by an atom or molecule at some earlier time. On the other hand, if an atom emits a photon, does that mean it must be absorbed by another atom at some point in the future? Intuitively that seems like a very odd idea, as if a flashlight couldn’t shine unless there was a wall for it to shine upon. And yet physics would seem to imply that if absorbed photons must be emitted, emitted photons must be absorbed. It all comes down to the time symmetry of physics, and it was a topic of Richard Feynman’s doctoral dissertation.

At Least There Is Symmetry

If an atom absorbs a photon, it’s obvious that the photon must haven been emitted by an atom or molecule at some earlier time. On the other hand, if an atom emits a photon, does that mean it must be absorbed by another atom at some point in the future? Intuitively that seems like a very odd idea, as if a flashlight couldn’t shine unless there was a wall for it to shine upon. And yet physics would seem to imply that if absorbed photons must be emitted, emitted photons must be absorbed. It all comes down to the time symmetry of physics, and it was a topic of Richard Feynman’s doctoral dissertation.

One of the basic ideas in physics is that simple interactions between objects are symmetric under time reversal. For example, suppose you made a video of two billiard balls colliding and bouncing off each other. If you played the video backwards, it would still look like two billiard balls colliding. For a simple interaction you have no way to determine which version of the video was the “forwards” one, and which was the “backwards” one. When you apply this to interactions between electrons and photons, the absorption of a photon looks exactly like the emission of a photon “played backwards.” This means if an absorbed photon must be emitted, by time symmetry an emitted photon must be absorbed.

This idea becomes even more bizarre if you consider astronomical distances. If you were to look up at the Andromeda Galaxy in the night sky, you see light that has traveled for about 2.5 million years. That means a particular photon emitted by a star in Andromeda 2.5 million years ago must have somehow “known” that it would reach your eye. In fact, because of relativity, from the photon’s perspective your eye absorbed it the instant it was emitted by a star. You might balk at that idea, but if we reversed things you’d have no trouble with the idea that the light you see was emitted 2.5 million years ago. In relativity, the two are the same, since cause and effect depend upon your vantage point.

What Feynman showed was that despite it’s oddness, the requirement that emitted light be absorbed doesn’t violate causality. It came to be known as Wheeler–Feynman absorber theory (John Wheeler was Feynman’s advisor). There were some problems with the model, however. In particular Feynman assumed that charges couldn’t self-interact. In other words, an electron couldn’t emit a photon only to reabsorb it later. Of course there’s no real reason why that should be forbidden, but if you allow it in the theory you get a divergence of interactions and the model breaks down. This led Feynman to abandon the model eventually, but it was deeply influential in his development of quantum electrodynamics, for which he was awarded the Nobel prize.

So is it the case that any emitted photon must be absorbed? We aren’t sure, but we can’t rule out the idea either. It might just be that when we observe light from the most distant galaxies, the photons we detect are simply arriving at the destination they had all along.

Ready to see the solar system from a different perspective than ever before? See Asterank in 3D.
Source – Chrome Experiments
Lots of attention is focused on non-fossil fuel alternative energy sources such as solar energy or wind farms. But what about mining mineral rich asteroids? The Google engineer Ian Webster created Asterank for the visualization of asteroids in the inner solar system. According to Google Chrome,”Asterank is an astronomically accurate interactive visualization of our inner solar system. It displays thousands of asteroids along with economic appraisals of top space mining prospects.” The tool was acquired by the asteroid mining company Planetary Resources in 2013.

Stay tuned to Raw Science TV for an upcoming exploration of the future of the asteroid mining industry.

Deep Space Industries will get propellant from asteroids

“The ability to produce long-life propellants from near Earth asteroids will enable expanded robotic and human exploration of the solar system,” said Faber. “Delivering propellants to high Earth orbit from the ground now costs $20 million to $30 million per ton, while asteroid-derived fuel, delivered to high Earth orbit, may cost as little as one tenth of current prices, making long-term space missions more practical and affordable.”

Apparently codenamed Project Fi internally, it will involve paying for service by the gigabyte, with a credit back if you don't use all your data and no overage fees if you exceed it.

More interestingly, it may be possible to use an app to change your primary device by moving your phone number to a different phone without swapping SIM cards.

The new service may also offer more privacy than other mobile networks with an easy opt-out option for data collection.  If you thought Google's data collection efforts were aggressive, you probably never read the fine print from your mobile carrier.

It still appears as though only the Nexus 6 will be available at launch data, unfortunately, though we may hope this is only temporary.

This computer is the size of a grain of Rice!

"Michigan Micro Mote (M3) is the world's smallest computer. How small? It's about the size of a grain of rice. A University of Michigan's March report can tell you that the team behind the computer have come up with a fully autonomous system that can act as a smart sensing system. "To be 'complete,' a computer system must have an input of data, the ability to process that data - meaning process and store it, make decisions about what to do next – and ultimately, the ability to output the data," said David Blaauw, one of the faculty members who achieved the Michigan Micro Mote.

Kaustubh Katdare in Crazy Engineers said on Wednesday, "It requires no special imagination to understand that as more things get connected with each other, the size of computers operating behind the scenes must bes... more »

He said "the Michigan Mote opens up new avenues towards the world of Internet of Things (IoT).""___

A new Metamaps peer production!

I've been working closely with +Ishan Shapiro and others from our network to design, test, and strategize a solution set for the Real Economy Lab project launched recently in coordination with +New Economics Foundation and Transition Network of the UK.

Below is the beta website we've put together with some of our insights and methods, including an embedded metamap topic view. In addition, you'll notice a Kumu.io map which gives a nicely interactive graph viz of some of the data we're starting to work with.

This project has the potential to grow into a large coordinated development effort to build and customize a full-featured community knowledge graph and sense-making environment for this domain. Right now, we're exploring what's technically possible and practically manageable in terms of a feature set and... more »

This project has the potential to grow into a large coordinated development effort to build and customize a full-featured community knowledge graph and sense-making environment for this domain. Right now, we're exploring what's technically possible and practically manageable in terms of a feature set and experience design. Got ideas? Input, feedback, suggestions, references all welcome!

We'll follow up with more news and notes here as plans and progress are made. For now, I hope this inspires additional exploratory mapping along these lines! You'll find a bunch of related content already on the metamaps platform. Try searching "REL" to begin. Please create and contribute thoughtfully :)___
