I've been exploring the meaning of p2p with @notthisbody, and along the way trying to distill the concept down to a simple definition. The logic of p2p has long transcended file sharing and is beginning to transform everything from politics to our economy. 'peer-to-peer' only scratches the surface of what we mean by p2p. There are lots of...

The strange case of solar flares and radioactive elements When researchers found an unusual linkage between solar flares and the inner life of radioactive elements on Earth, it touched off a scientific detective investigation that could end up protecting the lives of space-walking astronauts and maybe rewriting some of the assumptions of...

Is quantum theory weird enough for the real world? Our most successful theory of nature is bewilderingly remote from reality. But fixing that may require a weirder theory still PHYSICS, its practitioners will proudly tell you, is the most fundamental of sciences. Its theories and laws distil the workings of the real world - of particles...

It was a bright, winter day. The icy, crystal air scraped at my cheeks. With every breath, the frost cut deeper into my throat. Right through the extra thick wool sweater, the cold clawed at my bones. It felt as I was naked past my skin. This time there was no hope of returning unscathed. Somehow the inert brightness and cold amplified my sight;...

Alas. My computer is probably killing me. Isn't technology slowly killing us? It makes sense in evolution-that technology would slowly kill us all and not need a user. I sit with my laptop. Its warmth and humming noise sooth me. The warmth is like the warm touch of a humans....

You know that innocence they always talk about that slowly gets sucked out of your soul as you get older and older? Where they judge you if you talk about the magnificent chain of events that just happened in your mind all at once that have nothing to do with the current conversation? Where they shut down your every suggestion because it's not...

Thea idea for this post begun as a response message at but it includes some extra ideas in here. I don't want to be understood wrong so maybe is better to read that one first, but is not compulsory. In 1+1=3i, I think the third one is the imagination. Is in us. Is the same situation like in ireal numbers. Is something in, deep in us that...

Getitindot.com, otherwise known as “GIIDC” is the next generation of social networking sites. We like to think of it as a cultural networking site!

Ah, such a beautiful word. We've all felt it, some of us are feeling it right now but after all what's it to it? Me, I have a tendency of questioning everything, I demand reasons for all my actions, I try to explain events, feelings, relationships, and of course love. And you know what I've discovered? Statistics is the way to go when you're...
