“And as one of the leaders and pioneers in the emerging e-books industry, it makes perfect sense that SMP/Tor team up with Franklin in order to make our titles available to customers today, as well as to a whole new generation of readers in the future,” said Jeff Gomez of St. Martin’s Press/Tor.
The trio of phones has created confusion for some longtime customers. Jeremy Kirkland, a 32-year old marketer from Brooklyn, N.Y., woke at 2:45 a.m. on Sept. 15 — when Apple started allowing preorders — to buy an iPhone 8 Plus. But he canceled his order on Tuesday after reading a critical review of the device. He now plans to wait for the iPhone X.
Even McGonigal’s promotional tour is peppered with gaming elements: On the book’s website, Gameful.org is touted as an online hub for gamers and game developers interested in making the world a better place.
CidadeInternet, which is also present in Mexico and Argentina, also canceled its free access.
Makeblock and HAXLR8R are a great example of how investors finally warming up to hardware startups. Open source hardware hacking platforms like Makeblock, Arduino, and the cheap, tiny Raspberry Pi computer are creating a synergetic environment where entrepreneurs can cheaply prototype or even build working products. The more platforms emerge, the easier and cheaper it is for other platforms and companies to build upon them. This could be just as seismic a shift in the way technology is created as the open source software movement.
The DC Blockchain Summit also served as a stage for the launch of the Blockchain Research Institute, a multimillion dollar research effort into blockchain use cases, opportunities, and implementation challenges that will span the next two years.

The below image is a screen-grab from a short animation that shows the bathymetry of the Lau Basin area (see general map of region on this post) combined with seismic tomographic images of the subducting Pacific Plate.

It’s an ambitious goal, not unlike asking filmmakers to hunker down with coders they’ve never met to crank out new web concepts for film in 15 hours, which all six teams did. So there must be something to be said for the simplicity aspect of Popcorn that Waldron mentioned.
Mazzanoble: I’d like to believe it is. I think the D&D community realizes that more people, regardless of gender, playing and creating a healthy community, are what we need for it to thrive. I know Wizards has taken steps to make their community more welcoming for women. I’m definitely seeing more women online, in forums and message boards. Some of the most influential bloggers and reviewers are women, which is always great to see. It’s also becoming less of a novelty to see a woman in a hobby shop. I have also noticed a better selection of dice at my local shop, which makes me think perhaps the two are related.
Lanard and Sandman wrote an entire essay in response to my query to them, and they have put it up on their website (which is worth visiting as a deep resource of reasonable thinking about how to approach infectious disease). They call our refusal to engage with the depth of the epidemic in Africa, and its possible consequences for the world, “Failures of Imagination.”

“The fact is, he was right,” said Peter Sherwood, chief science correspondent for the Cold Spring Harbor lab.
Mel Brooks got so much mileage out of the Broadway version of his movie *The Producers *that he’s at it again, turning his hilarious 70s horror sendup Young Frankenstein into a musical that will hit stages in Seattle and New York beginning in August. The original flick was co-authored by Brooks and Gene Wilder (who also plays the tormented Dr. Frankenstein – “Doctor Frah-ken-STEEN,” he scolds anytime somebody pronounces it otherwise). It stars the amazing Cloris Leachman as Frau Blücher, and Marty Feldman as Igor. Best scene ever: Frankenstein orders Igor to get a brain for the monster he’s building, but Igor drops the “genius” brain his boss has requested. Panicked, he grabs the first brain he can find – one that’s in a jar labeled “abnormal.” The monster awakens and begins to run stupidly amok, and Frankenstein asks Igor whose brain he really got. “Um, Abby somebody,” replies Igor. “Abby Normal, I think.” Yes, that’s why so many people use the name Abby Normal when they sign up for Hotmail accounts.
LOS ANGELES – The U.S. Postal Service has canceled a brief experiment that allowed ordinary people to make postage stamps using images of their dogs, babies and even, it turned out, outlaws such as the Unabomber.
