No BS Journals (2 total)

I have a lot of friends. Yes, I have those who I only keep in touch with through Facebook, those high school friends who you haven't talked to in over a decade but yet you seem to know that they have three kids and have aged terribly.

A Trillion-Node World?

I like any well-designed video that gives me a glance at the past and a look into the future. Perhaps that is why I thoroughly enjoyed this video from MAYA design.

"It is widely accepted that in the foreseeable future the worldwide network of computing devices will grow to billions, or even tens of billions of nodes. However, if we broaden our consideration to include networks of information devices (all artificial systems that deal in any way with… Continue
