I will add to this later, but just wanted to get down a list of my favorite video bloggers so far:

Followed this link about new from Sony. They, among other companies, are working on cell microprocessors which will complete with Intel and AMD.

Lead to a story in R&D Magazine about the hot new technologies of 2005.

  5. Weird, boing boing is listed as a trackback, but I can't find the link on the site. Was it removed? Google's cache of boing boing starts at the 20th, so no luck there.

More mashup links here.

Math and Sex

Apparently you can use mathematics to find patterns in just about anything, including relationships. I often wonder if I am a mathematician and I don't even know it. I often intuitively find patterns in items of entertainment... movies, television shows, books, computer games... I get bored very easily if one of those items fits the patterns I recognize. I haven't diagrammed it out but I can grasp it intuitively. I wonder when the culture will shift-- when a new algorithm will come around to replace the old ones and the things that keep us distracted in the world are replaced by something new and more complex...

"There have been some arguments that limits on visual memory are related to limits on the number of items we can attend to at once as well as to limits on the number of items we can count at a glance (typically both have capacity estimates of around three to four)," added Dr Simons.
