Science March (vs. Placebo March)

Science March

»The numbers for the Science March seem high, but we won’t know until we compare it to the numbers at the placebo march that’s also happening.

I honestly feel bad for the people on the Placebo March, who thought they were at the Science March, but double blind testing is important.

I head the placebo marchers feel like they’re making a difference even after they’re told they’re at the placebo march.«

I am confused – it’s a science march, but in April. And the Placebo thing, that’s a concert, right?

Michael O’Leary, the outspoken CEO of Ryanair appeared unconcerned last night as he told reporters: “I don’t know what all the fuss is about, to be honest. The flight was underbooked and this individual was spotted wandering aimlessly around Costa Coffee in the airport lounge, so after making sure he had a credit card, we took him took the necessary steps to get him on board.

Remember: It’s only funny, because it’s almost true.

Tumblr of the Day: Roots of Design

I have just finished reading the Project Zero Blog entries about the Broadcom Wifi SoC used in Cellphones, and how to utilise that SoC to take over the main CPU of a phone.

While this is awesome reading, it reminded me about my interest in taking up a career in landscape gardening.

So here is my Tumblr of the Day recommendation for today: Roots of Design, a podcast about… Landscape Gardening.

It’s awesome, exploit free and about design, so it’s everything that IT isn’t.

It’s also defunct, the last episode is from almost 2 years ago, so it has at least something in common with the patch level of your phone.
