CYCLEAN BIKE-POWERED WASHING MACHINE Turns out riding a bike can have more benefits than simply exercise or green-transportation… these days your pedal power can provide juice for your cell phone, the TV at your gym, and now even your washing machine. Pedal your way to cleaner clothes – and save energy and get fit in the process! We mentioned Cyclean in our earlier Green Your Appliances post as an eco-friendly option to most energy and water-sapping commercial washers.

Peter Thiel To The New Yorker: “I Don’t Consider [The iPhone] To Be A Technological Breakthrough” Peter Thiel is a grump, but a special kind of grump. He is a dystopian utopian (if such a person can exist). The investor who wrote the first check for Facebook both believes in the power of technology to transform our lives, and is perennially disappointed by it.

Students Build Bike-Powered Charging Station from Scratch © Christina Woodward/NAU As we become more and more dependent on our gadgets, we also are continually seeking out better ways to power them, from solar-powered chargers to human-powered ones. We've seen ideas for piezoelectric sneakers to movement-powered iPhones, but one idea that always seems to come back is pedal power. Why not use the energy you create pedaling a bike charge to our gadgets too? There have been quite a few incarnations of this idea, but it's always refreshing to see a fresh take on it, especially when it's a group of students who go full DIY and build a bike charging station completely from scratch, including the bike.

Advantages include: 11 Best Web Analytics Tools When considering the different web analytics tools that your business requires, the plethora of available options can be overwhelming for businesses that may not understand how to use them. And that’s where hiring someone to really dig into all of the reports can be vital. The rule that is often referenced in this regard is the 90/10 rule, so if you have $100 to spend on analytics, spend $10 on reports and data, and $90 on paying someone to filter through all of that information. Because without a proper understanding of the information these services will provide you with, it remains just raw data.
Chaos Click here to go to Physics Virtual Bookshelf Click here to go to the UPSCALE home page. James Gleick subtitled his popular book Chaos with Making a New Science. Note the word is "Science," not "Physics." The sub-title is quite reasonable. However, much of the work on chaotic systems occurs in Physics departments. How to Make Everything Ourselves: Open Modular Hardware A modular system unites the advantages of standardisation (as parts can be produced cheaply in large amounts) with the advantages of customisation (since a large diversity of unique objects can be made with relatively few parts). Modularity can be found to a greater or lesser extent in many products (like bicycles and computers) and systems (like trains and logistics), but the best examples of modular systems are toys: LEGO, Meccano, and Erector (which is now the brand name of Meccano in the US). LEGO, Meccano and Erector are composed of relatively few elementary building blocks, which can be used to build various objects. The parts can then be disassembled and re-used to build something completely different.
Copyright law of the United States The Copyright Law of the United States intends to encourage the creation of art and culture by rewarding authors and artists with a set of exclusive rights. Federal Copyright law grants authors and artists the exclusive right to make and sell copies of their works, the right to create derivative works, and the right to perform or display their works publicly. These exclusive rights are subject to a time limit, and generally expire 70 years after the author's death. Five trends that will dominate the “cloud” in 2012 2011 has been an exciting year for the cloud. Companies are starting to accept the idea of using internet-based services instead of servers they control themselves. That in turn has driven a push to make the technologies more mature — and the tech companies making those technologies are growing up too.
