How do we get rid of a battery this big?

Another week another payslip right? This week has been full of net neutrality discussion, from why we need it to why we need it even more. There was even a vote on some form of non-committal policy from the people in charge, which is awesome. Or not.

Anyway, diving into this mess of links you’ll see there are a lot with a technology focus. Starting with 3d printed makeup and leading into mobile/cell phones, there is also more about wearable fashion, exoskeletons, automated cars and algorithms making decisions. There’s also a large smattering of humour spread amongst zombie apocalypses, comic book adaptions, alien creators, trolls, horoscopes, video and arcade games, photos from war, old papers, hot water, visualising the universe and a large collection of skulls. So jump in as someone has already cleaned all the blood off:

Ma’am, every villain is special to us

There’s quite a bit in here this time around; see last post for the reasons and a comparison; not nearly so far behind as before. All things considered, this is a good thing. Jumping in here thought gives us plenty to look at. From visualising data to more on driveless cars, plenty of good music to plenty of strange but oddly appealing music to free as in beer music, celebrity meatloaf [a la the 'Antiviral' movie] to celebrity awards, quite a bit on the security of your data and what you do with it, tons on the StarCraft competitive gaming leagues, more awesome photos from space to a trailer for the movie everyone is waiting for, law enforcement getting in on the tech advances, some creepypasta to some creepy fish, board games and old games, the privacy of the internet and anatomy all collected, bitcoins for dummies to home gestures, sounds from the history of technology to hacking current technology. First up though, we ask, and answer the age old question:

And apologies for a link to MySpace there at the end. We were unaware it was even still relevant, let alone a blog platform. Weird.

The little monster was very hungry, Chrp!

Apparently Diablo 3 is a going concern again, and it’s biting into the time usually spent on readings things on the internet. So this will be a bit of a less technical post. Lots more laughs hopefully; maybe. If you like the same things anyway.

Diving in we get trains and authors, highways and chemicals, spaceships and diaspora, horoscopes and more horoscopes, superheroines and towers, elder siblings and opinions, automated cars and beach sculpture, anonymous mobiles and artificial psyches, bitcoins and app stores. Up first though, is some art based on time and dimensions in space:

It’s an underwater level

It has been a good week for reading; so much that was actually interesting and so little kerfuffle about previously noisy and annoying things. Not that any of them are more important or unimportant compared to the others; rather that it has been a nice change of pace for it all.

Anywa, we have things here about the Olympics [I can still use that word, right?], lots and lots and lots of 3d printing, cinema awards, gemstones, mobile gaming, software updates, weather, subway station remodelling, music and mashups, vehicles, the alphabet [sort of], uplifting things and depressing things, prehistoria unveiled, magicians and murder, webcomics and the rise of civilisations. Dive in, eat up and laugh loudly:

Do you think our love will go on once the summer ends?

Well, there’s been a lot read and a lot discarded over the past week. And a lot has been linked below. Perhaps a little excessive, most likely just excited.

So, let’s dig into everything from monkeys to spiders, from satellites to automatons, from doctors to bus drivers, from videos to headphones, from plants to skeletons, from donuts to clean water, from videogames to obsolete computers, from Alzheimers to neuroscience, from criminals to references, from crabs to talking plants, from holograms to algorithms, and finishing off with somebody’s take on how we see Christmas:

And something specifically about a day not far from now:
