Stimulating Neurons with Light and Gold | The Scientist Magazine®
"FLICKR, STEVE JURVETSON Using a modified scorpion neurotoxin or antibodies to target gold nanoparticles to the surface of neurons, researchers have created a new way to stimulate brain cells in culture. All it takes is a little bit of light to heat the particles, which changes the capacitance of the membrane, resulting in the depolarization of the cell and the firing of an action potential. “We call it optogenetics without the genetics,” said biophysicist Francisco “Pancho” Bezanilla of the University of Chicago, “exciting cells in the nervous system without going through all the difficulty of creating a transgenic animal. . . . It’s a shortcut.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
You know what's not cool? Closing down a service and not allowing you to export your data. Got a 'limit-exceeded' from Frienfeed?
Super un-cool. People are trying to backup THEIR OWN content and it's impossible. I guess FF could have just rotated the database, though. - Claudio Cicali
getting that :( - Lorenzo R v rs

Cool, thanks, it's chugging through. What's different about how it works? - Todd Hoff
it doesn't downloads images - Miki
I got "Got a 'limit-exceeded' from Frienfeed?" again. - Todd Hoff
I keep getting the same here hmmm i see people downloading ok - Lorenzo R v rs
"Abandoning the unnecessary" is a good definition for the process of attaining simplicity.

"Freeze a couple of your water bottles or anything else you can get cold before you pack your cooler; this helps keeps the cooler cold throughout the weekend. You can even freeze all your water in place of ice altogether. Place your water bottles and other upright items in first. Don't be tempted to lie them flat, because fishing them out of the ice can get difficult. Place other items that need to stay very cool between the water bottles. Pack the ice around the water bottles until the cooler is nearly full. This should create a 'shelf' in your cooler for your more fragile items - dairy, fruits, vegetables and condiments. The more tightly packed your cooler, the better you'll retain ice. Learn to shop for your groceries to fit the cooler as perfectly as possible. Pack food in leak-proof containers. Avoid packing raw meat in the same cooler as the rest of your food. Avoid packing paper and carboard packaging." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
I'm toddhoffious on ello, but I'm not really getting ello yet. It doesn't seem to have a bookmarklet.
it still suffers from a lot of deficiencies comparing to FF. definitely has a long path ahead to become like FF - هانیبال
Yah, I find myself wanting it to work like friendfeed and then getting frustrated when it doesn't :-) - Todd Hoff
Same here. I check back periodically to see if they've tweaked any of the things that irritate me about it. When the irritation is lessened greatly, I'll stick. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
I really don't like any of my options. G+ could work, but it doesn't have a bookmarklet, which makes sharing hard. Plus the display "algorithm" means you don't see all the posts, which sucks. Twitter is way to public and is way to short form and conversations still suck on twitter. Facebook also has the we'll display what we want to display bug and it is again to public. Sigh. - Todd Hoff
There are no good alternatives to FF -- I've explored them all. - Sean McBride
G+ actually does have a bookmarklet: "https://plus.google.com/share... goes here]" is the basic sharing URL, and you can install bookmarklets via https://chrome.google.com/webstor... or similar. (See http://www.labnol.org/interne...) - Stephen Mack
But despite that, yeah, there are no good alternatives to FF. :) - Stephen Mack
there are some rumors, even more than rumors, that G+ will be shut down as well. maybe we're at the end of micro-blogging social network era - هانیبال
Well shit. - Todd Hoff
Thanks Stephen, I didn't know about the share bookmarklet. Seems to work. The +1s are pretty useless IMHO. - Todd Hoff
I'm trying to figure out why G+ seems so inefficient for conversations. It just seems heavy. - Todd Hoff
For me, it's the layout - I think they expect you to track your conversations through notifications, but the notifications themselves are so bloated with other things that it makes it difficult. I prefer a timeline more like this or Twitter. - Jennifer Dittrich
I'm working on it :-) - Todd Hoff
That's definitely part of it Jennifer. I do not like the notification approach. There are always timing issues. - Todd Hoff
Whenever I try to wade into Google+, the layout pushes me away every time. It is not nearly as readable as FF. - Sean McBride
So where are you going Sean? - Todd Hoff
FYI, there are 2 other options out there: frenf.it/earlyadopters and pepyatka. They are not as mature as friendfeed.com, but could be a landing place - Brixie from Android
Todd -- until I see the emergence of a new platform that is a next generation Friendfeed, I am probably going to take a vacation from participating on social media. All of the current options turn me off -- they are badly designed. - Sean McBride
FF puts a much stronger visual focus on individual posts than Google+ -- and they appear in a single clean LIFO (last-in, first-out) stream, with no distracting clutter. The key word is "focus." If Google+ offered the option for a FF-style layout, I might bite. - Sean McBride

How Chameleons Change Colors | The Scientist Magazine®
"“People generally assume that color change in chameleons is well understood, and I don’t think it is at all,” said Randall Morrison of McDaniel College in Maryland who was not involved with the study. “This whole notion of the tunable photonic crystals is a new way to look at physiological color change in animals.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Sewage Bacteria Linked to Obesity | The Scientist Magazine® - http://www.the-scientist.com/...
Sewage Bacteria Linked to Obesity | The Scientist Magazine®
"McLellan, along with Mitchell Sogin of the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and their colleagues, gathered samples from sewage treatment plants in 71 different cities with varying obesity rates—from Steamboat Springs, Colorado, with an obesity rate of 13.5 percent to St. Joseph, Missouri, with a rate of 37.4 percent. Sure enough, bacteria such as Bacteroidaceae were found in greater abundance in the locales with the relatively high obesity rates. “If we had a city with a higher percentage of obese people, we would see a higher percentage of the kinds of bacteria associated with obesity,” McLellan told Inside Science. The correlation was even able to predict whether a city was lean or obese with 80- to 90-percent accuracy." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

23andMe could be the new match.com with their DNA relatives feature. There are a lot of 3rd to distant cousins out there.
lol I've been using Vim for about 2 years now, mostly because I can't figure out how to exit it.
If you need to edit images picmonkey.com is a revelation.
A reason Amazon search may suck: authors are filling amazon with crap content. I listened to a youtube video that said their model to make money on amazon was to produce a children's book a week. Which is possible given current tools and ebook publishing. So you make a little money on each book but you make it up in volume.
This is not unlike the blog publishing strategies of frequent content updates to get more page views. Well, this is essentially a DDoS attack on the search algorithm. Which may be why Amazon search sucks. - Todd Hoff

"“The 3D printed Strandbeests continue to evolve and adapt to their environment,” Jansen writes. “The latest generation, Animaris Geneticus Bellus, has grown more elegant and efficient. It features optimized joints and slimmer legs resulting in a smooth walking motion. And thanks to its compact size it thrives in residential environments, walking along tables and flaunting on bookshelves. The mechanism is 3D printed completely assembled, and will work without further assembly right after birth from the printer.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Lessons From The Beginning Of Time :
"Indeed, several experiments will collect data within the next few years to clarify the situation in great detail. We should expect to know fairly soon if there is a gravitational wave signal from the Big Bang, a ringing in the structure of space itself from an ultrafast expansion that lasted for fractions of a second, as if the cosmos was in a hurry to grow up. Whatever the verdict, waves or no waves, the news will be key to our understanding of the early universe." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

UC Berkeley Unveils 9-Foot-Tall Pavilion, the Largest Powder-Based 3D Printed Structure Ever - 3DPrint.com
"The Bloom pavilion stands an incredible 9 feet tall, and features a footprint measuring 12 feet by 12 feet. It is built out of 840 separate, customized blocks, which were all 3D printed using an iron oxide-free Portland cement polymer formulation, which Rael himself developed with funding and support from the Siam Research and Innovation Co. Ltd. (SRI), the research and development division of Siam Cement Group (SCG). Additional support and materials were provided by Emerging Objects, a startup company co-founded by Rael and Virginia San Fratello, Entropy Resins, and 3D Systems." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
