May was a very busy month for me so, most of the entries this month consisted of links with little commentary. (Actually now that I think of it most of my journal consists of this type of entry.) And this is one is the same:
- Photolithography gives us microscopic radios.
- Concerning the veracity of fingerprints in these modern times of DNA cataloging and genetic forensics.
- Government webmasters dither over what web documents should be archived.
- An island in Scotland generates electricity entirely from fuel cells.
- You don’t need a 32 bit operating system to have a fully functional, graphical web browser.
- James Burke, a man who had a profound influence on my formative years, uses the World Wide Web to demonstrate how interconnected history is.
- The Guy I Almost Was. This web comic pretty much encapsulates any potential nostalgia about the nineties. Even though I am about six years older than this guy, I found a lot of resonance in it.
- Tissue engineering, genetic manipulation and cell surgery opens the door to superhuman bodies. Advances in neuroscience will to similar promises and perils for the brain.
