Norwegian ski billboard gets snowy when texted

Posted: November 19th, 2009 | Author: sung | Filed under: smart | No Comments »

… Essentially, this advertisement packs a few internal fans and a bucketful of faux snow; whenever it starts snowing up at the ski resort, someone sends a text to the billboard and the flurries start to fly…

Academic Earth Aggregates Lectures from MIT, Harvard, Yale, and Others [Education]

Posted: November 19th, 2009 | Author: sung | Filed under: smart | No Comments »

Web site Academic Earth is like Hulu for academic lectures, pulling free lectures from Berkeley, Harvard, MIT, Princeton, Stanford, and Yale into one attractive, easy to navigate site. It’s incredible.

The site clearly takes its cues from Hulu and iTunes on its design, but it’s ten times better than either, because it’s open. The videos can be embedded anywhere or downloaded and enjoyed wherever you want to take them. It’s easy to use, has tons of great content, and it doesn’t cost a dime.

We’ve highlighted these free courses before individually, like MIT’s OpenCourseWare or Stanford’s Engineering Everywhere, and we rounded up even more of them when we showed you how to get a free college education online, but Academic Earth takes the idea to an even better place. We love it.

Death Switch Sends Out Emails Upon Your Demise [Deathhacker]

Posted: November 19th, 2009 | Author: sung | Filed under: smart | No Comments »

Do you want to be sure that your final messages and missives are heard? Death Switch is a service which sends out emails upon your unfortunate demise.

Why would you want to do such a thing? The company’s web site points out a variety of potential reasons, like not leaving your coworkers and family high and dry without important passwords or information and getting a secret off your chest now that you’re gone. Over at the CNET news blog Technically Incorrect they highlight another potential use of the service: The ability to contact people you don’t have real life contact with after your death. You could set up the service to send out emails to members of mailing lists, gaming guilds, discussion boards, and other virtual communities you participate in.

The basic service is free and includes a single email. The pay service, a year, allows you to compose up to 30 emails with 10 recipients each. Only the pay service allows you to include attachments. Death Switch determines when to send out the messages by sending out messages to you on a regular basis. If you fail to respond to enough of those messages in a row, the emails are mailed out. What say you dear readers? A novel way to wrap up your virtual life after death or a bit too creepy?

Open source hardware bank: P2P lending for hardware hackers

Posted: November 19th, 2009 | Author: sung | Filed under: smart | No Comments »

A microcredit co-op bank has sprung up in Northern California, using money pooled from hardware hackers to fund other open source hardware hacking projects. They’ve found 70 lenders,


Two open source hardware enthusiasts, Justin Huynh and Matt Stack, have started the Open Source Hardware Bank to fund hardware projects such as the microcontroller board pictured above.

The fledgling bank is funding only open source hardware projects using capital raised from other hardware geeks. It’s like a community of Facebook friends borrowing and lending among themselves — a peer-to-peer bank.

“This speaks to the rise of the do-it-yourselfer, someone who is not just a consumer but also a producer, inventor and investor,” says Huynh. “But someone also ought to be thinking about the money problem when it comes to open source hardware and we are doing just that.”

So, this is a major plot element of my science fiction novel Makers, coming from Tor next October: microcredit-funded open source hardware hackers laboring in dead malls (the first third of the book was syndicated on Salon as “Themepunks”). It’s always a little weird when sf starts to leak into reality.

Boxed Water Is Better

With Boxed Water Is Better, the only thing you’re really consuming is the water itself. A new brand—and concept—Boxed Water has successfully taken the bottled water phenomenon to eco-friendly heights.

They’ve lowered the carbon footprint by shipping their unfilled recyclable containers flat to the water source, keeping the cargo pollution to a minimum while maximizing the capabilities of the carton, which can be broken down again post-consumption.
