Science is sexy – Mitochondria

Poste by a cool guy using Spock as an avatar over at G+ this video is pretty damned cool.

The animation highlights the creation of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) — mobile molecules which store chemical energy derived from the breakdown of carbon-based food. ATP molecules act as a kind of currency, imparting chemical energy to power all the functional components of cellular activity.

Are you a HACKER?

Consider yourself a ‘hacker’. Someone who wants to make things better, to pull a thing apart and put it back together except new and more you. Hacking isn’t necessarily a technical thing though the movie is clearly focused on it’s impact regarding computers. Still, are you? Do you take pride in making things better, your dinner, your kids, your home, and your life. Doesn’t it scare you how people react to hackers, to you!


TPP – Why arent Australian’s annoyed?

I’m always astounded by how little interest Australia takes in technology.

As a country we are uniquely situated to not only pump resources into new technologies but take advantage of said technologies. With recent backlash regarding the lackluster FTTN #FRAUDBAND roll out of fiber across the country to the sudden and almost impromptu embracing of regional schools and technical teaching aids such as tablets and electronic whiteboards it was starting to look like Australian’s were ‘getting’ it.

However the TPP is a clear sign we don’t ‘get’ it. In fact our bumbling, yokel conservative ‘well I don’t know bout that there thingy but I likes me some porn’ approach to the internet is going to leave the whole world reeling. Is that you, or someone you know more interested in how fast and free they can download illegal movies or pornography than securing the internet as a resource for the generations to come. Shame on you.


How to be a movement.

Yeah, its simple just…

Hard Work or Not

I’m gonna peak at the idea of Bitcoin’s, because it’s been a little since I’ve made a post, not even a silly post about trolls. So I’ve pretty much given away the idea of mining, unfortunately the availability of ASIC’s and the high cost of power in Australia wipe it out.
