I love to bookmark web links. In fact, due to my overwhelming need to archive everything whenever I reformat the computer (or every few years: get a new computer), I'm sure I have a folder of links from 1997 lying around here somewhere.

Anyways, more to the point, I was using this application called Pluck that stores my bookmarks online so I could access them from anywhere. However, I couldn't just publicly share them without entering in someone's email address.

So I decided to finally register on del.icio.us. It is so awesome, like you don't understand.

Try it!

Been doing insect behaviour research lately... It's been quite well known that if we want to improve our technology, we need to look towards already existing biological systems.

For example, this article is fascinating: How your everyday house fly can be analyzed to develop flying technology.

I just had one of *those* moments... where you realize that it is literally impossible to have an actual original idea.

Ego crushing, on one hand. Vastly comforting, on the other, to know that others think the same way I do.

Some of you might remember that I wrote a project proposal earlier this year. Excerpt here and full 8-page proposal here (pdf).

And so today I see Pleix's Netlag video.

Spooky!!

Oh and I'm not saying at all that someone's idea was stolen... I've never heard of Pleix before nor did I ever upload my proposal until right now in order to show you the similarities.

Actually, I quite like how their project turned out. Apparently they projected it onto a big wall when they presented it.
