NEW YORK - Vitamin B12 may help protect against Alzheimer's disease, according to a study out Monday. The study suggests that seniors with more of the active part of the vitamin in their blood have a lower risk of developing the disease, which eats away at the minds of one in eight Americans aged 65 and older, according to the Alzheimer's Association. However, the findings don't necessarily mean that taking B vitamin supplements will stave off mental decline. Just last summer, for instance, a pair of studies deflated long-held hopes that B vitamins — like B12 and folic acid — would help patients who had suffered strokes or heart attack.

On July 19th this year, a Doctor Nefario arrived at Seattle airport and was asked if he had enough money to cover his stay in the US. He replied that he did, but it was in Bitcoin, an electronic cryptographic currency. Unfortunately, not only did the Customs and Border Protection Authority not know what Bitcoin was, they didn’t accept it as a valid currency and so refused him entry. The Customs and Border Protection’s ignorance of Bitcoin is shared by many, even though there are currently around 63.6 million USD of Bitcoin in circulation. This may seem trivial in comparison to the approximately $950 billion US dollars in circulation. Bitcoin – Pirate’s Gold or new Global Currency?

The Rise and Fall of Bitcoin | Wired Magazine Illustration: Martin Venezky In November 1, 2008, a man named Satoshi Nakamoto posted a research paper to an obscure cryptography listserv describing his design for a new digital currency that he called bitcoin. None of the list’s veterans had heard of him, and what little information could be gleaned was murky and contradictory. In an online profile, he said he lived in Japan. His email address was from a free German service. Google searches for his name turned up no relevant information; it was clearly a pseudonym. The Rise and Fall of Bitcoin | Wired Magazine
Jacob Aron, technology reporter Bitcoin freefall: the market plummets as large amounts of bitcoins are sold off at rock-bottom prices - bigger circles correspond to larger transactions (Image: Mt. Gox) Following reports of theft last week, the Bitcoin community suffered another major loss of confidence yesterday when its largest exchange, Mt. Gox, was compromised, causing Bitcoin's value to fall from around $17.5 to just a few cents.

The Demographics Of Bitcoin | Zero Hedge With the growing popularity and perhaps relevance of a globally decentralized currency system in a world adrift in fiat devaluation death-matches, it is perhaps interesting to understand just who these Bitcoin'ers are? The ongoing survey of Bitcoin users (here) has some intriguing results already: The 'average Bitcoin user' is male (96%), 32.7 years old, libertarian / anarcho-capitalist (37%), non-religious (61%), with a full time job (43%), and is in a relationship (56%). The biggest motivation for new users are curiosity, profit, and politics; and 39% of users do not drink, smoke, gamble, or take drugs. Just over half of users have mined bitcoins and the greatest community fear for Bitcoin is “regulatory/legal intervention” followed by ”reputation problems”. Overall more people seem to find Bitcoin intellectually rewarding (70% have learned more about cryptography) than socially rewarding (22% have made friends).

Illustration: Harry Campbell There's nothing like a dollar bill for paying a stripper. Anonymous, yet highly personal—wherever you use it, that dollar will fit the occasion. Purveyors of Internet smut, after years of hiding charges on credit cards, or just giving it away for free, recently found their own version of the dollar—a new digital currency called Bitcoin.

One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age | Digging through the Geocities Torrent We live in a world where people say “GIF”, but mean “Animated GIF”. In the 1990′s, and during the first years of the new century — or lets say before this format’s glorious comeback — there were two genres: GIFs and Animated GIFs. There were collections of GIFs and Animated GIFs, there were famous GIFs and famous Animated GIFs.
Algorithm of Love - January/February 2011 A dating site created by geeks, for geeks. Whether overclocking their computers to get the best possible performance, or using sensors to maximize the effectiveness of their workouts, nothing defines geeks (aside from a love of spaceships) so much as the belief that data and information can improve, well, everything. So why not optimize the search for love? That's the idea behind dating site OkCupid. It began in 1999 when Sam Yagan, MBA '05, then a Harvard undergrad, launched with classmates Max Krohn and Chris Coyne. The site included humorous quizzes and a dating service, among other things.
