Federal judge clears commercial drones for take off

Drones might soon be coming to a neighborhood near you. A federal judge has ruled that the Federal Aviation Administration has not explicitly outlawed the unmanned aerial vehicles. Though the FAA could issue an emergency rule to ban commercial drones or appeal the ruling, the case will allow drone operators to fly their vehicles below 400 feet, at least for now.

Is Start-Up Culture Derailing the MBA?

“I don’t think any of my CEOs have MBAs.”
That’s what I said at first, about all the teams we had brought in under the Science umbrella. When we ran the numbers, I was surprised to find that I was wrong.”

Tears Of Steel - Full Length Animated Action Movie 2013 / 2014 Full Movie in English Multi-Subtitle (by English Full Movies)

The short science fiction film is about a group of warriors and scientists who gather at the “Oude Kerk” in a future Amsterdam to stage a crucial event from the past in a desperate attempt to rescue the world from destructive robots.

The “video short story” has come so far in recent years as video software and cameras continue to become more accessible. 

This Industry Is Completely Ridiculous. Let’s Hope It Stays That Way.

I think that instead of the tech industry being co-opted by bureaucrats, and politicans, and I-bankers, and other Serious People … it will co-opt them, and skew the whole world into its giddy circus of nonstop fast-forward ever-accelerating crazy unpredictable ridiculousness, and its surprisingly subversive results. I have a smug little suspicion that every would-be king and kingmaker who tries to take a bite out of the tech industry will instead find themselves unexpectedly devoured by us. Again, this is not always necessarily a good thing. But if nothing else, it promises to be awfully entertaining.

A really good write up, that puts things in a different perspective. Plus the author gets points for the Hackers picture.

Cut Copy Releases First 3D Printed Music Video
The music industry has been quick to use 3D printing to market new albums. Back in December we reported that Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke 3D printed vinyl records at a pop-up shop in London to mark the release of her LP. Indie-electronic band, Cut Copy, recently released a music video which used 3D printers to create the starring characters of their new music video “We Are Explorers”.

Love Cut Copy. Also love 3D printing. One thing to note though is that Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke, is a he not a her.
