And the week has flown by again. Leaving all plans in its dust. This week though has seen the Big G’s I/O conference begin – though it’s disappointing to not hear about cosplayers dressing up as their favourite Google apps.
To make up for that let down, this time around there’s lots of talk about the glass, as one might expect. There’s also lots of fun science thing to read about, astronomy, neurology and biology, as well as plenty on new technology, including an interesting piece on the new drones and just what their proliferation may entail. As you scan down the list you’ll find a lot of art and design articles, some really interesting things. And that’s a lot less than originally planned as well.
