I'm not sure why they made this robot. Seems like all he does is work out and break shit. A bit of a hooligan if you ask me

Technology and Emergent Society

Yeah, A robot that that breaks shit seems a bit useless but technology is emergent in nature the knowledge base of robots just increases, a guy on youtube points this out-- 15 years ago I was building robotic mining equipment that used P1 based PLCs and ladder logic--
Today they use processors I don't recognize, do floating point math and use language I don't understand.
Speed / performace WOW
I worry We can all say hello, hello--to a place called technological unemployment---as automation increases, fewer and fewer jobs for people is the place we will be in.

So why not follow the natural course and let machines do the monotonous and boring and dangerous jobs instead of people--the economic system we live is in the opposite direction that technology is taking us to--

Love this idea for a thread, unfortunately haven't had a chance to go through this thread and check some of this stuff out. Will do that soon. In the meantime, something new to add in that I just saw online-check this out:

How The Universe Works: Big Stars - Bing Videos

That's just crazy. And cool. And I love that one of the things is named Betelgeuse .

woooah tw1 !
look at that front move in!!!
course i have to look at more of those similar vids lined up at the bottom!


Way back for me while it was "only" the front of one ginormous Thunderhead.... i was looking westward from way upper Manhattan across the Hudson River over to the Palisades - a natural sheer cliff drop-off (forgot either glacier, or volcanic lava flow over).
Above was begining edge of the cloud, then it curves "inward" to the main towering up mass- which you couldn't see- the next thing you saw above (leading edge) was a double (NEVER Seen THAT before) on top of each other partial curve of the (icing up) anvil.

NO cmaera with me so I sat there and made a quick sketch which I re-did later. Then walked 1/2 mile home, drew pretty similar sight over the small comercial block it was sonme what closer.
It was moving pretty slowly. It took about another half hour before it actaully came over enough to rain!

I wonder how longit took ( the one you high-lighted) to start raining.

IEG
wow that Earth/Moon photo wow
inner chill-thrills!
and the new Mars photos! SO beautiful! So intriging!

I've never forgotten the first time i got to see part of the Moon upclose at a college friend's summer get together. He had a nice telelscope.
Oh My to see the moon's diffeerent sized craters up close, sharp, AND the shadows cast from them by The Sun - really making it REAL!

*has wondered for a long time whether The Edge has been able to buy time at one of the great Visible Light Mirror Telescopes*

You def have to see more of this stuff Moonlit! I've seen about half of it...def must catch up more myself!

thanks people!

Today's news...

A surprise from the LHC already! | Jon Butterworth | Science | guardian.co.uk

From another article:

Quote:
A study of "high multiplicity" collisions, where a hundred or more charged particles are produced, has revealed indications that some particles are somehow "correlated" or associated together when they were created at the point of collision.

This is really cool, about music and memory:
