@rjbman I want to give you more than one +rep for that video, wow, that was lovely.

This article is a very cool scientific explanation of the Black Belt in the southern United States. Very nice read if you're interested in geology, social science, American politics, cool shit, fruit...

hologram tech has gotten really neat. got the chance to handle one of these a bit ago, the ability to see a 360-degree view of an object on a 2d surface was really trippy.

world yoyo contest was this weekend in prague - super cool stuff happening.

this is the first year they've had a womens division, which I think is super lame. but whatever, this girl kicked serious butt. check out the killer sideways combo at 1:55.

Miranda July just released an app/accompanying short film with Miu Miu that is very Miranda July (so turn back now if that's not your bag), but personally I think it's kind of brilliant. You choose someone to send a message to, and it's delivered by a nearby stranger/stand-in based on cues and directions in the message itself.

Really interesting concept perfect for those of us who are endlessly obsessed with nested file systems. A nested universe!
