Watch this — 3 minutes from a Japanese lab showing how we’ll soon be able to “touch” holograms — and interact with them.
What a time to be alive. “Reach out and touch someone,” indeed.
Could we please, please not screw it up? (For example: could we please elect leaders to chair our science committees who don’t believe science is a hoax?)
And did you watch the President’s final State of the Union address last night? So good. Here is the record of the first seven years. I’m sorry that it includes facts and stuff — it flies in the face of the steady Republican drumbeat that we have stupid, stupid leaders who have driven the country off a cliff.
Quote of the Day
Panics do not destroy capital; they merely reveal the extent to which it has been previously destroyed by its betrayal into hopelessly unproductive works.~John Stuart Mill, 1867 (Like shopping centers in the middle of the desert. Or millions of pages of legal documents.)
