Standardized network diagrams for biology — SBGN.Org. Cool, I have a hard time imagining electrical engineering without a standardized circuit diagram language.
Oriented Assembly of Metamaterials — Stebe et al. 325 5937: 159 — Science — good article. “Such metamaterials may, for example, be used to create cloaking devices or light-based circuits based on manipulations of local optical electric fields rather than […]
Reardon recommends Computational Science and Engineering. OCW links.
FT.com / Reportage – A library of the world’s most unusual compounds — would love to visit this library/museum.
A couple of good primers out on the net: * A Primer on Index Notation from Colorado Civil Engineering. Practical intro to index notation * A Primer on Index Notation from MIT. A little more theoretical and discussion of use […]
nanoHUB – Simulation, Education, and Community for Nanotechnology. – hub for nano educational materials and software. interested in learning more about nano TCAD, pointed to by this article
Quantum computers could excel in modeling chemical reactions | Science Blog. — from the department of tautology. A quantum system can be best modelled by a quantum system.
All over the place — Distilleries of Scotland, DC, Bullets, Games, Doghouses, Golf, Currency, and more
Brett on Stuff » Distilleries of Scotland. A reason to hike Scotland WOW — stronger authentication than your bank. What does that say about the world. Running DC thru the house. An idea whose time has come again? Indie games […]
Scientists Store and Retrieve Data Inside an Atom | Science Blog. – Kind of mind-bending. Love this stuff.
Nearby Solar System Looks Like Our Own at Time Life Formed | Wired Science from Wired.com. — 10.5 light years is remarkably close!
Caltech researchers awarded $10M for molecular programming project. UW involved as well. More info at the Molecular Programming Project: …we will develop new computer science principles for programming information-bearing molecules like DNA and RNA to create artificial biomolecular programs of […]
‘Naked-eye’ gamma-ray burst was aimed squarely at Earth | Science Blog — ok they claim it came from a source 7.5 billion light years away, but it sure seems strangely coincidental that it was pointed straight at us. Maybe they […]
MAKE: Blog: ‘Big Bang’ experiment starts well. Whew.
Flexible CNT circuits move on – nanotechweb.org. Just one of many efforts to implant circuits onto papers, plastics, etc. We are going to have processing power embedded in pretty much everything. Work on nanonet circuits — ok this stuff is […]
Cow Backpacks Trap Methane Gas. Adds a new fun element to cow tipping as well.
* Nanoglassblowing — new ways of creating nanofluidic elements * Insights into hidden world of protein folding — new insights into just how proteins fold, in some cases inside the chamber of something not unlike an engine. fascinating * IBM […]
Gigabytes, terabytes and beyond….to Geopbytes | Tongfamily.com — thanks rich, i knew these all up to bronto/geop.
Amazon.com: Human Wildlife: The Life That Lives on Us by Robert Buckman. Fun book about the vast number of helpful, benign, and dangerous critters that live on and in our bodies. You really get the sense that you are a […]
Nanowire arrays think big – nanotechweb.org — bottoms up, “organic” assembly of nanowires. Some technique like this is going to be necessary for nanowire devices. And solving the general problem of bottoms up chip assembly seems pretty high value.
Home — a pretty inspiring list. We should all be working on one of these! I am glad to see that Ignition has companies working on health informatics, personalized learning, solar energy, and internet security.
