Nereus lost – meanwhile, somewhere at the bottom of the ocean, these little fish are chuckling…

There are times, every so often, when we look at this world and marvel at how things work. Take for example this report from last week, which demonstrates how precariously we perch on this little bit of rock, when compared to some of our other fellow inhabitants.

MakeSpace – watch out eBay and Craigslist, cloud closets are coming to get you!

You can always tell when a new service is being hyped up as a billion dollar possibility, because you start seeing a lot of fancy comparisons. Like ‘the reverse Amazon‘ or ‘the Uber for x‘. This is VC short speak for ‘we’ve dumped a ton of money into this venture because we believe it’s going to be incredibly disruptive and change the world. Maybe.’ The PR trick is to associate the new venture with a massive veteran success story, as…

The Knowledge – how to rebuild our world from scratch in the event of the unthinkable happening

Should we be getting nervous about the sudden rash of survival books landing on the shelves at the moment? We’re trying to stay calm, with a cup of tea and all that, but it’s getting hard, Marge. The latest tome comes from Dr Lewis Dartnell, entitled The Knowledge.

Something Pop – cool free mathematical tool helps you make optimum decisions in life

We all have to make decisions, right? Some are important (like does this shirt make me look fat?) and some not so much. After all who cares if you run for president. Really. And we each have our own way of making the big choices in life, using a pin, a lucky Shamrock, asking the lady down the post office. counter. But now there’s a pretty cool alternative.

Is the independent web starting to fight back against the giant corporate networks?

We stumbled across an interesting article by Matthew Ingram the other day, lamenting the loss of the old ‘blogosphere‘. What made it especially poignant was the fact that it was posted on one of the prime examples of the new corporatized ‘blog’, Gigaom, which many years ago transitioned from small and friendly to big and rich. It’s progress.

TVStreamCMS – set up your own streaming movie and TV shows site for just $199…and profit?

Watching the entertainment industry struggle with the brutal reality of the modern digital world is rather like watching an ultra slow motion car crash, and it also seems strangely reminiscent of the the way the original motion picture industry fought the Edison movie monopoly back in the early 1900s. Rebels fighting a dominant group of self-serving business interests. What goes around comes around as they say, eh?

Sidekick – stripping away the dreams of Kickstarter, one failing minute at a time

Just Reach Out – forget PR agencies, all you need is this tool. Apparently…

We love it when new startups make big bold statements, because it’s so much fun watching them try to live up to them over the subsequent weeks and months. So it is with Just Reach Out, a new online service which apparently believes it can completely replace PR firms with a single Reach Out box.

University of Sheffield successfully flies a disposable 3D printed drone [Scary Skies]

A team from the University of Sheffield in the UK has successfully flown a UAV (aka drone) which was built entirely using a 3D printer. The aircraft, built in the college’s Advanced Materials Research Centre, is made up of just nine parts, many of which snap together without needing fixings.

Battle of The Robot Bands – Z-Machines vs Compressorhead

You like music? See if you like this. It’s a video battle between the Japanese robot band Z-Machines versus the German robot band Compressorhead. We don’t know what to say really. Other than the trite observation that if this is really the future of music, we’re all going to be in a lot of pain one day.

How Animals See The World

We have to confess to being fascinated by science, and especially that part which deals with the biology of species. Which makes this How Animals See The World article really interesting. Of course it’s all a total fantasy, rather like an alien trying to work out how we humans see by counting the megapixels on our cameras, but it’s still a valid piece of guesswork even so.
