My current job works with the students who come up with some of the theories and discoveries about Neuroscience, etc. that are featured in this trippy Scientific American article. It's just so wacky, like the grey squares actually being the same shade? Or, the wheels aren't really turning in the image above.... ?! No way! It's pretty cool stuff.
Also speaking of cool, my fascination with handbags was fueled by this good news in the world of recycled art-wear.
And finally, my Jimmy Carter-era desire to see metrics in place in the good ole US of A might just be around the corner. I thought we got all the "it doesn't go up to 11" issues worked out with Y2K....?
