Nice interactive tool to create hand-drawn style graphviz diagrams.
Going to be impressed when the 3 Falcon Heavy core models land!
Economic growth is very surprisingly limited by the speed of light! Einstein wasn't wrong (again) to have called compound interest "the most powerful force in the universe".
That stupid light in Las Vegas is the brightest spotlight in the world?!
Worth thinking about.
This is a pretty interesting approach, going to have to look into it further some day.
This tool is so cool.
This is pretty amazing - I want direct manipulation for everything...
This is a really good presentation, especially from an 18 year old! And the security theatre here is face palm all the way.

A too-weird to not be true history of pigeons in warfare by The History Guy.

Part of the Apollo Flight Journal, Apollo 11 collection giving a detailed account of every second of the Apollo 11 descent and landing. The video combines data from the onboard computer for altitude and pitch angle, 16mm film that was shot throughout the descent. Pretty cool.
This is a fascinating video working through building a SVGA(ish) video "card" using a breadboard and TTL chips. And an EEPROM in part 2.
A whole new world, a new recursive point of view...
You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that’s in the side that’s in the field goes out and when he’s out comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out. When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. When they are all out, the side that’s out comes in and the side that’s been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out. Sometimes there are men still in and not out. There are men called umpires who stay out all the time, and they decide when the men who are in are out. Depending on the weather and the light, the umpires can also send everybody in, no matter whether they’re in or out. When both sides have been in and all the men are out (including those who are not out), then the game is finished.
