What is Chaos Theory? The Secret Life of Chaos Chaos theory has a bad name, conjuring up images of unpredictable weather, economic crashes and science gone wrong. But there is a fascinating and hidden side to Chaos, one that scientists are only now beginning to understand. It turns out that chaos theory answers a question that mankind...

Government Game Show(GGS). I recently read an article about how Wheel-of-Fortune winners are forced to pay taxes on their winnings before they can collect. Powerball winners pay very high percentage of winnings to state and federal taxes. If the government were to start their own game show, it would bring in revenue two ways. 1. ...

To your horror, you find yourself inside something like in the Saw movies, and Mr Jigsaw, an expert at making unescapable traps that work as designed, has set up the following experiment... 10 smart people, or 20 dumb people, are going to die before anyone leaves the building. Which group dies depends on a lever which is out of reach of...

Recently Bradley Manning received serious jail sentence for revealing war crimes against humanity, humanity in Baghdad at least, and this makes me wonder: is it possible that in physics there is no such thing as "domino effect", no avalanching, no butterfly effect? it just doesn't exit! We need to redo the perceived history of...

Somewhere in 2006 there was a guy named Putnam who hacked into Facebook. He was later hired. We may remember Putnam by typing in :putnam: into status or comment. See what happens. Oh now you tell me you already knew this? Could you donate your RNA as a code to the global network?

I waited LOOONG time for that latest star trek movie, which I could not see in the movie theaters when it was on. And what do I get? Torture! IT MAY TAKE A YEAR TO OBTAIN IT FINALLY on some sort of creepy filesharing network. Meanwhile, the local film festival is coming. There won't be anything trekky, but far worse terror is coming. I think...

I wrote this post December 2008 but didn't publicly post it here. I don't why, other than I hate facebook, I was ranting and thought I'll keep it to myself. But, appearing in this past year (2009), there are already solutions to what I perceive to be internet problems (ie CargoCollective, Behance Network and Google Wave are three solutions)....

I accomplished the goal of building (the) mostly silent PC.

Black-body radiation can give rise to a net attractive force between tiny objects. That is the claim made by physicists at the University of Innsbruck in Austria, who have calculated the strength of this new force between a speck of dust and a hydrogen atom. The team believes that in some situations the force could be more significant than gravity...

I'm not sure how to prove it, but I think that to solve this reliably is an NP-Complete problem and practically is useful for new kinds of routing protocols and a foundation for decentralized global democracy more similar to how Wikipedia allows billions of people to agree on many things instead of top down ways of organizing things. How can a...

The use of language has an extended effect upon society and culture. This effect cannot be determined exactly and the intent behind its use is not the production of change but communication between individuals across time and space. Society uses language and the language grows with time and the number of it’s users. Let’s think for a moment...
