Paul Virilio "One of the major problems now facing political as well as military strategists is the phenomenon of immediacy, of instantaneity. For `real time' now takes precedence over real space, now dominates the planet. The primacy of real time, of immediacy, over space is an accomplished fact, and it is an inaugural one. A recent...

As I listen to Ruben Blades haunting rendition of Patria, I hear the gratitude he feels to those who have gone before, whose efforts have made the comforts and pleasures we enjoy, and whose labours, inspiration and invention we use in our efforts to improve this world and to contribute our gifts in the most effective way we can. Even in this...

"A century ago, most of the world's premier observatories sat atop hills just a brisk walk from their home institutions. But no more.

With all the hype flying around Augmented Reality lately, it's easy to assume the nascent tech is just another flash-in-the-pan destined to burn out in a fury of marketing gimmickry & sensational posturing.

As many have documented, the foundations of our current state of the Internet (namely the TCP/IP protocols) were developed by Leonard Kleinrock at UCLA in late 1969, with the first Internet connection formed between the UCLA and Stanford campuses.
