Thoughty Thursday: Things that made me go hmmmm on the interwebz, July 27-Aug 2, 2014

Science abounds this week.

Astronomers detect a signal 240 Million light years from Earth. IFLS.

More IFLS: Scientists have solved the mystery of the hole at the world’s end. Remember that article I posted a few weeks ago? Well, here’s the explanation.

ASAP science asks, how much sleep do you need?


NASA records ambient space music. That’s what ima call it anyway. I think it’s lovely.


Neil deGrasse Tyson refutes GMO fear mongering. Mr. Science says the same. Smart guy, my man 😉


Wired’s absurd creature of the week is the Satanic Leaf-Tailed Gecko. Personally, I think he’s beautiful.

Kathryn Schulz says a good life is not so much about regretting nothing, but about forgiving yourself for whatever it is you regret. TED.

Another TED talk, this time by Suzanne Talhouk. The Arabic language is in danger. Cultures around the world are trying to preserve their languages. Suzanne hopes to inspire the Middle East to do the same.

Vivek Wadwha predicts that automation will replace human workers more quickly than we’re prepared to handle. How will the world address this trend and what will we do?

Heading off to When Words Collide very early tomorrow morning. I’m still going to try to blog Saturday and Sunday, but you may have to forgive me if I get caught up in the panels, sessions, and workshops.

In other words, I’ll see you when I see you.

Hang tight, my writerly peeps 🙂
