Earth Day from Space There are many ways to celebrate Earth Day, from sustainability efforts (and check out our new blog, Guilty Planet) to simply appreciating nature. And while this is a beautiful shot of Forest Park right here in Portland, it doesn’t compare — in my eyes — to the perfection of Earth as seen from so far away. In October of 1946, a V-2 missile was launched from New Mexico, straight up into the air. And at its maximum height of 65 miles (just barely into what was then considered outer space), it snapped the first photographs of the Earth from Space. (And you can click every image on this page to enlarge it.) It wasn’t until Apollo 8, 22 years later, that the first color photograph of Earth was taken.
Google's slippery slope: If search giant pays Twitter for content, should it pay all publishers? Toward the end of Bloomberg’s story about a potential deal between Google and Twitter to display tweets in search results, this bit at the end made me sit up: “There’s no advertising revenue involved in the deal between Twitter and Google, one of the people said. That suggests Twitter will receive data-licensing revenue, which was $41 million in the third quarter, up from $16 million a year earlier.” In other words, Google is going to pay Twitter for better access to its content.

[via io9] HTC One M8 Review: The Best (Sorry iPhone) Smartphone On The Market First Image Made of an Atom Spinning Physicists have discovered a way to play with matter on a subatomic scale, reaching into atoms to manipulate the spin of electrons. What's more, the scientists were able to capture the first images of the action with a special microscope. Spin is one of three basic properties of electrons, along with charge and mass.

No thanks Anomaly Detection is the New Black Ted Dunning, Chief Applications Architect, MapR Technologies In a smooth-running business, something that stands out from normal usually is not good. But even if it’s a happy accident, you still need to look at it. Sounds simple, but with huge amounts of data this can be challenging, and the volume of incoming data is growing fast. More and more things are being attached to the Internet, and these things are often continuously making measurements to determine how they are working and what is around them. How can you look at it all and figure out what is anomalous?

Satter and Eilperin failure to demonstrate learning When delivered, on a silver platter, an opportunity to demonstrate learning and fulfill the Fourth Estate’s essential role of fostering a more informed public, Associate Press reporter Raphael Satter and Washington Post reporter Juliet Eilperin trip over themselves in a rush to press and disseminate deceptive truthiness rather than engage in truthful reporting. Satter seems to double down on reporting innuendoes and falsehoods disproven in multiple investigations by institutions around the world. Although their context couldn’t be determined, the excerpts appeared to show climate scientists talking in conspiratorial tones about ways to promote their agenda and freeze out those they disagree with. Even though noting that the “context couldn’t be determined …”, Satter decides to move forward with “excerpts appear” even though the 2009 “ClimateGate” stolen email leakage was shown, through the following year, to have been a manipulated effort by those seeking to undermine climate science.
Freebase - Google+ When we publicly launched Freebase back in 2007, we thought of it as a "Wikipedia for structured data." So it shouldn't be surprising that we've been closely watching the Wikimedia Foundation's project Wikidata since it launched about two years ago. We believe strongly in a robust community-driven effort to collect and curate structured knowledge about the world, but we now think we can serve that goal best by supporting Wikidata -- they’re growing fast, have an active community, and are better-suited to lead an open collaborative knowledge base.
