What's this Place? The Quantified Self Instapaper, ReaditLater, Readability,, Evernote Clearly, etc. I’ve been experimenting with all of these for a little while (ok, Clearly the most recently since it’s new). For those who aren’t already familiar with these tools/services, they provide distraction-free reading when you’re browsing online. I’m not surprised that they’ve become so popular since webpages look increasingly like Times Square; these tools make reading so much more comfortable. If you don’t already use one, I highly recommend you choose one—maybe after reading this post. As they get more popular, there’s more competition.

About Us — Seomra Sproai Seomra Spraoi is a collective that came together in 2004 to set up a radical social centre in Dublin. This idea is an attempt to rebuild some of the things that have been lost to us in the modern world: the sense of community, an atmosphere of tolerance and respect, a safe and secure environment and a non-commercial space for political, arts, cultural, community and other events. It’s a space where you don't feel like you need to buy a cup of over-priced coffee just to sit and relax for a while. What is a social centre? This is a gathering space without a profit motive. Lots of people have got involved in the project in various ways. How is the centre run? The Seomra Spraoi social centre is an autonomous space. There is no leadership or executive committee – this initiative is being organised by a collective of different people with different backgrounds and interests, working together in co-operation with a common purpose.

Baby-by-Number: Parents’ New Obsession With Data | Wired Science Allen Fawcett admits he and his wife are mildly addicted to keeping track of their babies’ schedules. The pair of economists have been recording every diaper, feeding and nap since they became parents. With the help of the Trixie Tracker website, they know they’ve changed exactly 7,367 diapers for their three-year-old son and 969 for their three-month-old daughter. They also have a graph of precisely how many minutes each of their children slept on nearly every day since birth. “People look at us and say, ‘My goodness, how do you spend so much time on this?’” The Fawcett family may take schedule tracking to the extreme, but they’re certainly not the only parents who are measuring, recording and comparing minute details of their kids’ lives. Fifteen years ago, tracking your baby’s development meant going to the pediatrician every few months and recording his growth on a simple height and weight chart.
