IPCop Eric M. Jackson: Why 'The PayPal Mafia' Is Killing It Last month, local reviews site Yelp filed for an initial public offering. Founded in 2004 by Jeremy Stoppelman and Russel Simmons, Yelp is the latest in a long line of companies started by PayPal alumni to hit it big. Dubbed the "PayPal Mafia" in an article by Fortune magazine a few years ago, alumni from the payments company have gone on to start or run an amazing roster of companies. Reid Hoffman founded LinkedIn. Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim started YouTube. David Sacks founded Yammer.

Material Science Madness: Crazy Metal Melts in Your Hand There is an incredible metal that shatters like glass, melts in a human hand, attacks other metals but is non-toxic to humans, and acts like an alien life form when exposed to sulfuric acid and dichromate solution. It sounds too amazing to be true, but gallium is an absolutely real chemical element that’s found in some of the gadgets we use every day. But perhaps more interestingly, there are a ton of insane experiments scientists like to do with gallium. Thanks to its odd properties and behavior, gallium can do some pretty strange things in the lab. The above video shows what happens when gallium “attacks” aluminum. The “gallium beating heart” experiment is a popular one that shows how gallium can act like a living thing when submerged in sulfuric acid and a dichromate solution.
