The Memory Dump

geekfeed:

The USA invented an incredible power source, and then ignored it for 50 years.

Now China is on its way to taking it over. Getting the USA back on this track is critical for America’s economic, environmental, and medical future; not to mention its world influence.

The technology is called Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors; or LFTR, pronounced “lifter”.

One of the most inspiring and geeky video’s I’ve seen in a long time.

Watching this video was as entertaining and inspirational as watching a SciFi movie, and it is reality.

2011 in review: The year’s best graphicsThe Post’s graphics department is called upon to make visual order out of the chaos that is news. Graphics editor Richard Johnson picks his top ten of the year

I really like the Post, because it gives me both a chance to engage with, for the most part, reasoned and intelligent, rather than reactionary, ideas from the right of the spectrum and to see what good design in newspapers can look like.

Drunk History Christmas with Ryan Gosling, Jim Carrey and Eva Mendes

I love you, Drunk History. I love you, Ryan Gosling wearing a sleeping cap and pajammies.

Every now and again, it’s nice to get riled up by some of Hitch’s incendiary and forceful rhetoric. The second half of this video covers Hitchens’ well-worn views on religion, but the first part is one of the most eloquent condemnations of censorship you’ll ever see. 

*He does invoke John Stuart Mill however, and I’d be curious to see his response to Mill’s assertion that low-value speech — speech that does not necessarily make truth claims — can be restricted.
