Conversnitch
Project by Brian House and Kyle McDonald is a Raspberry-Pi-powered lightbulb attachment that can listen into nearby conversations (which are then posted onto Twitter) - video embedded below:


Conversnitch is a small device that automatically tweets overheard conversations, bridging the gap between (presumed) private physical space and public space online.
Information moves between spaces that might be physical or virtual, free or proprietary, illegal or playful, spoken or transcribed.

FRACT OSC is out today, and while it has no foliage I am still giving it my personal seal of approval and hype.
It is the majestic, glowing, digital world that Tron promised but made into a truly gigantic living instrument. All the puzzles revolve around tuning the living synth - and the whole thing is an honest-to-goodness tunable digital synth and minimal DAW - to find the right musical solutions.
It’s available on steam, gog, and humble store.

Shannon Jensen: Long Walk
How do you represent a journey in an image?
30,000 men, women and children from Sudan’s Blue Nile State sought an end to nine months of terror and trauma when they crossed the border into their neighboring South Sudan this past June. They joined a population of 70,000 refugees who preceded them in fleeing Khartourn’s deadly military campaign to crush the northern remnant of the Southern liberation movement.
Many of the new arrivals had neer left the vicinity of their villages before shelling, bombardment and gun toting soldiers drove them away starting last September. They fled from the bush to the mountains and back again for months, often stuck behind enemy lines, before they were finally able to reach the border, a journey made more perilous by the dearth of water and food as well as the risk of ambush and attack. 
The incredible array of worn down, ill-fitting, and jerry rigged shoes form a silent testimony to the arduous nature of their journey, as well as the persistence and ingenuity of the individuals who survived it.

A very interesting graph looking at tech adoption in the US - the global figures would be even more telling.
futuramb:

No, Tech Adoption Is Not Speeding Up
Yes, Matt Novak you are completely right about that the data is not showing what Vox argues that it says.
But, the analysis of adoption is of course even more complex than that. A single technology in itself (whatever we define it as) is a very bad (and difficult) object of analysis. And connect the adoption of that technical idea to generations, perspectives, values or behavior is extremely difficult.
One example I read about from the other day was that a group of teenagers told researchers that they stopped using Facebook and used Instagram and Twitter instead. A year or two ago I read about that (another group of) teenagers didn’t use Twitter because it was more of a parent thing…
In these examples we are not talking about technologies almost at all, but relatively rapidly changing behavior according to how a certain tool fits into a certain behavior for a certain age group.
The solution is probably to paraphrase a well known book title: “It is complicated”.
But I would still argue that some things are changing faster than they did 30 years ago, which in turn changed faster than they did 70 years ago.
What we also forget is that during the late 19th century and early 20th century we had a tremendous pace of change for a while. But then it slowed down for various reasons… So if we want to talk of trends we probably have to take much longer perspective that 150 years!

How to make DIY Graphene.
alexob:

You too can make Nobel Prize winning, super-material Graphene! 
Here is how:
First, pour some graphite powder into a blender. Add water and dishwashing liquid, and mix at high speed. Congratulations, you just made the wonder material graphene.
This surprisingly simple recipe is now the easiest way to mass-produce pure graphene – sheets of carbon just one atom thick. 
If you need a reminder on graphene and its super powers then read up on it here.
