DIY Continuous Ink Printer = Unlimited Free Printing | Hack N Mod - StumbleUpon Instead of paying for absurdly priced printer cartridges, build yourself a Continuous Ink Printer (CIS) which can be made by hacking an old printer to suck ink from external reservoirs. You can get the raw ink for dirt cheap so it’s essentially like unlimited printing for free (besides the paper). So now you can actually print your collection of pirated books! A CIS is relatively easy to create, just take an Epson Stylus 760 (a surprisingly hard to find printer) and make a few modifications to it. More Printer Hacks:

Why Facebook's Facial Recognition is Creepy -  PC World Article - Tech & Gadget - MSN CA By Sarah Jacobsson Purewal I'm not sure if you've heard the news, but Facebook is officially getting super-creepy. Facebook announced Tuesday that it will be implementing facial recognition technology for all users in the next few weeks, semi-automating the photo-tagging process. Sure, you can "opt-out" of the service, but it's a pretty weak consolation. After all, opting out won't keep Facebook from gathering data and recognizing your face--it'll just keep people from tagging you automatically. The new facial recognition technology, which was announced in December but only introduced to a small test group, is basically Facebook's way of creating a huge, photo-searchable database of its users. (See Related: Facebook Facial Recognition: Its Quiet Rise and Dangerous Future ) Basically, Facebook is using facial recognition technology to "suggest" tags to users who upload photos. Sure, I guess it's easier. Ok, I know I sound a little melodramatic. - Facebook has 600 million members. Yeah.

Beyond Defaults: Transhuman Intelligence Beyond Defaults: Transhuman Intelligence Michael Anissimov Singularity Institute April 2004"The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them." - Albert Einstein A personal catchphrase of mine is: "never expect the default to be optimal!" The default situation, whether in human affairs, technological systems, or natural patterns, is always the preexisting system, which often works "satisfactorily", but only because the system itself sets our standards! We're so used to the default cluster of reference points because it's all we see. The default is the most common. In fact, don't expect anything you believe in or anything you witness to represent optimality, the best possible option. We're all only human. If we value anything at all about living, talking, thinking, or simply being, then we will care about improving the qualities that correspond to what we value, while continuing to enjoy them in the present. Qualities That Create Value

The Anatomy of a Great Email Introduction I’m looking for people going to Burning Man. If you or anyone you know is going this year, please check out BurningManRides.com! I’ve been making a lot of email introductions lately. Friends looking for jobs, entrepreneurs looking for partners/customers, and anyone seeking expert advice. Everyone does introductions differently – sometimes it’s a one-liner, sometimes it’s a couple paragraphs. In general, when I want to make an intro, I want to maximize the chances that it results in an actual engagement. People have told me that I make good intros and I thought I might break down how I do it. Let’s go through each element one at a time… 1) Subject: This has got to be catchy. 2) Quick personal chit-chat: I only introduce people that I know decently well and who knew me. 3) Who I'm introducing you to: This is where I give the background of the people I'm making the introduction for. 4) "The Ask": Here is where I ask the person I'm reaching out to for something. So that’s what I got.

Digitalhead Daily & [TIPS] RunAsDate lets you indefinitely extend... - StumbleUpon If you get a trial version of a program, it will generally give to a certain amount of time to try the software and evaluate it before buying. What if the software’s 3-day trial period just isn’t enough for you to be satisfied? There are a few programs out there that will let you run programs as a set date to get more out of a trial period, but RunAsDate from NirSoft seems to be the most simple out of the bunch. This utility is simple to use. Just install your trial software normally. Run it once to get settings and profiles set. To simplify the process later on, tell it to create a desktop shortcut. This could be a downside if the program actually uses the date and time for whatever purpose, but if you want everything to work properly, you might want to consider either buying the software or looking for an open source alternative. Now for the caveats. I do not condone piracy because writing software code is a job too, and the developers should get paid for their hard work.
