Hubble Space Telescope — Astronomers analyzing debris from a comet that broke apart last summer spied pieces as small as smoke-sized particles and as large as football-field-sized fragments. But it’s the material they didn’t see that has aroused their curiosity. Tracking the doomed comet, named C/1999 S4 (LINEAR), NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 found tiny particles that made up the 62,000-mile-long (100,000-kilometer-long) dust tail and 16 large fragments, some as wide as 330 feet (100 meters). Hubble detected the small particles in the dust tail because, together, they occupy a large surface area, which makes them stand out in reflected sunlight. However, the estimated mass of the observed debris doesn’t match up to the comet’s bulk before it cracked up.

Hypermedia is as vast as the oceans are deep. It touches us each and every day.
The condition or experience that we know of as hypermedia can be favorabley compared to that of water.
Vastness of Internet
In this paper the hypermedia paradigm is discussed from the viewpoint of user interfaces. The problems of interacting with vast hypermedia structures are presented. First, the attention is drawn to the presentation of the information structures in multi and hypermedia application interfaces.
Searching for information on the Internet is fast, easy and comprehensive -- and maddeningly frustrating when a simple query yields literally millions of responses. Look for "Canada" on the Lycos.com site, for example, and you'll get slightly more than 15 million Web links. Google.com will give you 33 million links. Ugh.
One thing that is certain that in addition to lots of things that are going right with our education system the things that are going wrong get way more attention. Leaders lead, followers follow and the people in the middle make sure that things get done. With the ebb and flow of education being a constant, the resignation, removal of Michelle Rhee illustrates that education policies are whimsical.
PrincessLeia (New Scientist) Michael Bove’s group at the MIT Media Lab has recreated the famous holographic projection of Princess Leia from Star Wars by hacking the camera sensor from a Kinect gesture-recognition system for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and crunching data with standard graphics chips. The frame rate for their system has also jumped a factor of 30, from one frame every two seconds to an impressive 15 frames per second.
I'm constantly amazed at what I find on the internet.

Mary Gallagher recently received an e-mail from the Metropolitan Tucson Convention & Visitors Bureau offering “hot deals.” But there was a catch: In order to receive them, she had to follow Tucson’s tourist authority on Twitter and friend it on Facebook. That didn’t sit well with Gallagher, a travel writer, who said she receives enough deals each day. “How much Facebook and Twitter drivel could you spend each day reading?”
