BItcoin may be unraveling for both political and technical reasons.

"Why has the capacity limit not been raised? Because the block chain is controlled by Chinese miners, just two of whom control more than 50% of the hash power. At a recent conference over 95% of hashing power was controlled by a handful of guys sitting on a single stage. The miners are not allowing the block chain to grow."

I spent two weeks exploring the Silk Road in far west China. Technically this region is called Xinjiang (New Province), also once known as East Turkestan. This area has more in common with the culture of Turkey than with Beijing. It's kebab with chopsticks. But this is really China. In fact it is the largest province of China. I took a bunch of photos and the usual caveat applies: this is a very selective view, and it does not represent the typical scene in the province at all. Like most of China it is rapidly urbanizing. But I think these images capture the spirit of this part of Asia, which once connected east and west.

Taiwan is a very modern island country. But scattered through its urban megacity are temples from another era. Recently I spent a week in Taiwan visiting as many temples as I could. To say the temples are ornate is an understatement. They are over-the-top gaudy, mind-boggling decorative, sometimes in day-glo colors. Each temple is different. I only saw a small fraction of them all. Enjoy!

Log scale 360 panorama of universe.

If you haven't seen this, here's a logarithmic scale of the universe, with our solar system at the center, to the CMB and plasma left over from the Big Bang at the edges. Logarithmic scales are widely used when the numbers, or stuff, you use, has a large range. It makes things easier to read, and in this case, makes it possible to see the universe from our solar system out to the CMB.

This image was put together by Pablo Carlos Budassi, based on data taken by researchers at Princeton University.

There are not many areas of China left that you could call charming or picturesque. The mountainous area of southern China is one, and one of the last places in China with very traditional costume and architecture and traditions. I recently spent a week there with my daughter during the Lusheng festivals. We spent some time in the river towns and in minority villages. Each area has its own dress, most clearly indicated by women's headdresses. Enjoy!

I spent 12 days in Cambodia last month. My first trip there. I spent 2 days in the ancient ruins, 2 days in the rice basin, 2 days on the central lake, 2 days on the River, 2 days in the hills, and 2 days in the capital. I felt I got a decent transect of this varied country. Enjoy my snapshots!

There were golden ginko trees, hot spring baths, snow dustings, fire walking, plenty of Japanese food, many pilgrims in white and lots of temples.

I finally made it to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, on the roof of the world. At 3,600 meters (11,800 feet) Lhasa is basically the lowest point in Tibet; everything else is higher. Most Tibetans are farmers, yet most of Tibet is uninhabited. There are only a few cities; Lhasa is the largest. While Tibet is modernizing and filling with Han Chinese immigrants, the old parts of Tibet retain some of their traditions. I tried to capture some of those traditions in these select images.

I spent two weeks exploring the Silk Road in far west China. Technically this region is called Xinjiang (New Province), also once known as East Turkestan. This area has more in common with the culture of Turkey than with Beijing. It's kebab with chopsticks. But this is really China. In fact it is the largest province of China. I took a bunch of photos and the usual caveat applies: this is a very selective view, and it does not represent the typical scene in the province at all. Like most of China it is rapidly urbanizing. But I think these images capture the spirit of this part of Asia, which once connected east and west.

Technically very cool and sweet.

[Throwing a torch in Virtual Reality] 
This seems like a bigger achievement than it looks : Two guys basically blindfolded, using a digital representation as their basis of motor functions like throwing/catching. Pretty wicked.

The speed of the calculations occuring here is absolutely mind-blowing.
Person A starts to move arm - computer A sends information displaying arm movements and torch location. computer B receives the information and displays it for Person B. All fast enough for Person B to actually physically catch the torch. The simulated times and distances and RL times and distances have to be within an extremely low margin to successfully catch a thrown object.___Technically very cool and sweet.

This is how an AI might hire great programmers. Google's "secret" gamified recruiting method, hiring people before they even start to look. http://thehustle.co/the-secret-google-interview-that-landed-me-a-job

The Silver Cord, Co-authored by Steve Masseroni and myself, will officially be translated into Chinese. This is an amazing achievement. We are grateful to the nearly 1000 Chinese fans who backed the campaign.

Raising almost 300,000 Renminbi raised ($46,823.79), The SIlver Cord Chinese translation campaign bettered our US ‪#‎Kickstarter‬ campaign (which had 720 backers who pledged $42,723). Which means we have a bigger fan base in CHINA.

We are very thankful to Jiamin Zhao, CO-founder and CEO of http://www.yeeyan.org, who was the catalyst, and to Geoffrey Chen, founder and CEO of Zanshang Crowd Publishing for all their support http://www.zan-shang.com

I love the way @JasonSilva quotes me with video exaltations. I say technology makes us more human. He says it best. http://youtu.be/WIR0nwhesGw
