The Reiser4 Filesystem
on: Google TechTalks
The ReiserFS project aims to add support for semi-structured data querying to the filesystem namespace. Reiser4 is the storage layer for this. It stores all files in a dancing (not balanced)tree, and is currently the overall fastest filesystem for traditional filesystem usage patterns.

Replikin genome sequences and survival rates in shrimp and human pandemics
on: Replikins Ltd.
Dr. Bogoch spoke at the World Aquaculture Conference in San Antonio, giving some background on his company's Replikins technology and announcing test results in conjunction with the University of Arizona. These results correlate virulence of four Taura virus strains in shrimp with the concentration of Replikin subsequences in the virus genomes. This is the first virus protein structure to have been shown to be quantitatively relate not only to the occurrence of epidemics, but now specifically to mortality rate of the host.

Brookhaven National Laboratory
The NLS-II Project; 418th Brookhaven Lecture
on: Brookhaven National Laboratory
The NSLS-II project will establish a third-generation light source at Brookhaven Lab, increasing beam-line brightness by 10,000. Achieving and maintaining this will involve tightly focusing the electron beam, providing the most efficient insertion devices, and achieving and maintaining a high electron current. In this talk, the various sub-systems of NSLS-II will be reviewed, and the requirements and key elements of their design will be discussed. In addition, the a small prototype of a light source of a different kind that was developed by the NSLS will also be discussed.

Richard Dawkins
Oxford University
The universe is queerer than we can suppose
on: TedTalks
Biologist Richard Dawkins makes a case for 'thinking the improbable' by looking at how our human frame of reference -- the things we can perceive with our five senses, and understand with our eight-pound brain -- limits our understanding of the universe. Think of it: We can't see atoms, we can't see infrared light, we can't hear ultrasonic frequencies, but we know without a doubt that they exist. What else is out there that we can't yet perceive -- what dimensions of space, what aspects of time, what forms of life? Dawkins calls the human-size frame of reference 'Middle World': between the microcosmos of atoms and the macrocosmos of the universe. Middle World thinking limits our ability to see the universe in terms of the improbable, whereas 'in the vastness of astronomical space and geological time, that which seems impossible in Middle World might turn out to be inevitable.'

Craig Venter
Geneticist
A voyage of DNA, genes and the sea
on: TedTalks
Genomics pioneer Craig Venter takes a break from his epic round-the-world expedition to talk about the millions of genes his team has discovered so far, in their quest to map the ocean's hidden biodiversity. (Quite a task, when you consider that there are tens of millions of microbes in a single drop of sea water.) He updates the TED audience on his discoveries, from the 2,000 photoreceptor genes found in the Sargasso Sea to the thrill of being under house arrest in French waters. After touching on the potential of environmental genomics to monitor the safety of air, water and offshore drilling, Venter ends with his vision for engineered species that can replace the petrochemical industry by creating clean energy.

IDEO
David Kelly: The future of design is human-centered
on: TED Talks
Low-key and thoughtful, IDEO founder David Kelley seems the antithesis of the 'design star' -- and indeed, he says that product design, within the past two decades, has become much less about the design and more about the user who'll be experiencing it. In this classic 2002 talk, he shares some video of products coming out of IDEO, including Prada's famous high-tech dressing rooms, 'Dilbert's ultimate cubicle,' and a gotta-have-it gadget called Spyfish. He finishes by discussing a project he's passionate about: ApproTEC -- now called KickStart -- offering designs that give Kenyans the means to end poverty.

City Planet - Stewart Brand speaks at Google

Whole Earth Catalog Founder, and GBN and Well cofounder Stewart Brand has long been fascinated by cities—how and why they are changing and the long-term implications for civilization. Join Stewart as he explores the nature of the emerging 'City Planet,' a world of megacities largely populated by the young; vibrant communities of squatters that are redefining environments, economies, and social norms; and massive urbanization that could represent a huge opportunity for environmentalists, though most haven't realized it yet.

John Gribbin

The roots of the 'Royal' and the Scottish connection
on: The Royal Society
From the Royal Society Public Lectures: How did a group of scientists who first came together in Oxford during the Parliamentary Interregnum get to establish a Royal Society, in London, almost as soon as Charles II was restored to the throne? John Gribbin, author of The Fellowship , a new history of the scientific revolution and the origin of the Royal Society, argues that it was largely thanks to Robert Moray, a Scot who managed to serve on both sides in the Civil War, acted as a spy for Cardinal Richelieu, and in the words of John Aubrey had the kings eare as much as any one. He was the man with the Big Idea and the contacts to make it real.
