Quantum Wave Theory | A Model of Unity in Nature
All things in the universe generate patterns of energy resulting from their motion.

Quantum Wave Theory is a model of nature that grew in response to several questions: What, exactly, is gravity? How are charge and gravity related? What gives rise to the fundamental unit of energy? And especially, what is space?

Our attempt to answer these questions evolved into conversations that continued for more than a decade. Quantum Wave Theory is an artwork, a prose poem, that is the result of that collaboration. The theory attempts to unify energy, mass, and force as manifestations of a single entity. We refer to that entity as space.  (-Amy Robinson and John Holland)

Utterly terrific piece of investigation and storytelling by Fred Vogelstein of how the iPhone came to be - and how the demonstration by Jobs was a white-knuckle ride for the inventors. An extract:
“I understood how it could be done,” [Tony] Fadell says. “But it’s one thing to think that, and another to take a room full of special, one-off gear and make a million phone-size versions of that in a cost-effective, reliable manner.” The to-do list was exhausting just to think about. “You had to go to LCD vendors who knew how to embed technology like this in glass; you had to find time on their line; and then you had to come up with compensation and calibrating algorithms to keep the pixel electronics from generating all kinds of noise in the touch-screen” — which sat on top of the LCD. “It was a whole project just to make the touch-screen device. We tried two or three ways of actually making the touch-screen until we could make one in enough volume that would work.”<p>

Shrinking OS X and building a multitouch screen, while innovative and difficult, were at least within the skills Apple had already mastered as a corporation. No one was better equipped to rethink OS X’s design. Apple knew LCD manufacturers because it put an LCD in every laptop and iPod. Mobile-phone physics was an entirely new field, however, and it took those working on the iPhone into 2006 to realize how little they knew.

Save some time and read it all.

Install Node on OS X using Homebrew | Houndstooth 2012
I am a big fan of Homebrew and I try to install all of my packages through Homebrew so that I can run updates, checks and installs all using the same commands and directories. I recently started using Node.js quite a big for build systems and also a little bit for server experimentation. One of the things I noticed is that Node isn’t quite as simple to install with Homebrew as most everything else is. There are a few extra steps you must take to get it going correctly, so I thought I would do a brief install tutorial to help anyone out who ran into the same issue.

Travel photography tip: Understanding ISO | Matador Network
But with DSLRs you have a slew of numbers staring at you when you open your ISO options, starting usually at ISO 100 (though some cameras have ISO 50) and going as high as ISO 12000 (more with full-frame / professional-grade cameras). Just five years ago, ISO 800 was considered aggressive. Today, Canon’s 5d Mark III can attain great results at ISO 6400, and even “expand” to reach ISO 25000. So what will you choose? And why?

OFF THE RECORD | Journalists tell personal stories about the crazy s#@t that happens to them
Sometimes they go so deep into a story they lose track of where the story ends and where their private life begins. In OFF THE RECORD, journalists tell personal stories about the crazy s#@t that happens to them on—and off—the job. We want to pull back the curtain on the strange humans who do this kind of work—because they are, after all, humans. They make silly mistakes, they risk their lives, they have private feelings and fears, they crack under pressure. It’ll be interesting to see what we find back there in the dark.

With Big Data we can now begin to actually look at the details of social interaction and how those play out, and are no longer limited to averages like market indices or election results. This is an astounding change. The ability to see the details of the market, of political revolutions, and to be able to predict and control them is definitely a case of Promethean fire—it could be used for good or for ill, and so Big data brings us to interesting times. We're going to end up reinventing what it means to have a human society.

Exporting Images With Usuable Names From Evernote — pxldot
The Evernote Image Extractor allows you to select any subset of your Evernote notebooks and a destination folder and will proceed to export every image attached to notes in those notebooks. Images are named using the name of their containing note (with a procedure to ensure that no two images have the same name and overwrite one another), and the images from each notebook are exported as separate folders. While Pixa doesn't have Applescript support, it does have an excellent Live Folder feature that makes it easy to get the exported Evernote images into your Pixa library.
