Caroline Siede at 7:00 pm Sat, Apr 19, 2014 • 4 It’s good to be back in the Clone Club. The return of Orphan Black quite literally hits the ground running and never lets up in this action-packed, clone-filled premiere. “Nature Under Constraint And Vexed” reintroduces almost every major player from season one, readjusts the show’s antagonistic forces, and ends with a bombshell reveal. I’m not convinced it’s a pace the show can maintain for the entire season, but it’s a hell of a fun way to jump back into the world of Orphan Black. Read the rest

Ink Tank - Make words not war The ten greatest short story writers of the twenty-first century? What, we scoff, only ten? After all, the century’s fourteen already – that’s enough time to compile a list twice as long as this one! However, we’re going to restrict ourselves to ten because we’re also interested in your input: which story writers have blown your mind since the big Y2K? Leave your comments below! CogDogRoo - Web 2.0 Gem Starters Precious Web 2.0 Gems (return) Web Gems Starter List Each one of the "gems" listed here was recommended by an educator or someone who works in this field (or me!).

Glasses Fitted With Speakers & Scent Emitters Could Improve Your Social Life Simply called the Sound Perfume glasses, this eyewear is able to send out sounds and smells that are unique to the person you meet. Created by researchers from Keio University in Tokyo, Japan, these glasses aim to make face-to-face encounters more pleasurable and memorable. The Sound Perfume glasses are equipped with infrared sensors and built-in speakers and scent emitters. When the glasses detect someone else wearing a pair of Sound Perfume glasses nearby, a message containing your name, contact number, unique sounds and odor are transmitted to the person. In return, you will also receive the other person’s information, sounds and scent. All the information can be stored on a mobile phone, so when the user walks past the location, the sound and smell of the other person can be triggered to evoke a multi-sensory memory of the encounter.

Michael Gallagher: More Than the Art of Video Games This week, the Smithsonian American Art Museum will launch The Art of Video Games exhibit exploring the forty-year evolution of video games. The exhibition showcases some of the industry's most artistically compelling games, as well as the gaming systems that have brought these games to life for players of all ages. The exhibit will also feature some of the most influential artists and designers of game technology, from early pioneers like David Theurer to contemporary designers like Jenova Chen.
