Scientist concocts a truly horrifying plan for contacting extraterrestrial life

If aliens are really out there, do we really want to wave a flag at them letting them know we’re here, especially when we haven’t yet created a global planetary defense system? More importantly, do we want to contact them in a way that will make them instantly hate us and want to vaporize us as quickly as possible? That’s what Seth Shostak, the director of the Center for SETI Research at the SETI Institute, is proposing in The New York Times with a zany plan to beam the entire Internet into space. More →

Comedy Central sticks by Trevor Noah amid controversy about his old tweets

Amazing but true: People on Twitter sometimes say tasteless things that they wish they could take back. Such is the case with Trevor Noah, who on Monday was named to be Jon Stewart’s replacement as host of The Daily Show. However, it didn’t take long for Internet sleuths to comb through his Twitter archives looking for things to get offended by and they unearthed some sexist tweets dating from 2012 and earlier.

And Muppet fans, not to worry, you’ll see a number of great cameos from all of your favorite characters. More →

Why Kickstarter Works Obsidian

Forget all the scams and failures – Kickstarter is a legitimately revolutionary platform

By on March 31, 2015 at 2:24 PM.

Let’s get this out of the way: You have to be very careful when you pledge to Kickstarter. There are lots of projects out there that are either scams or are started by well intentioned entrepreneurs who simply don’t have the talent or experience to fulfill their promises. And of course, there are a lot of truly horrible Kickstarter ideas (I’ve written about them for laughs in the past) that mercifully never get funded. More →

But TouchWiz could have been better than that, even before Google came up with Material Design. More →
