How We Come to Know Ourselves In the Age of the Quantified Self

My grandmother recently had a pacemaker implanted. Major surgery and its aftermath are frightening at any age, but for a 93-year-old and her family it is a particularly scary tightrope to walk. Had her recovery been filmed for a montage in a family drama, there would have been reassuring doctors and smiling nurses with encouraging words as the liveliness returned to her eyes and activity to her arms and legs—but this wasn't a movie. This was the information age. As we gathered around her hospital bed in the days after the procedure, I could tell that my grandmother was worried, and I was worried, too.

Scientists Can Now Unboil Eggs to Hopefully Make Cancer Drugs Cheaper

It sounds like research that doesn't have much more of a practical application than making people say "neat," but chemists at UC Irvine have figured out a way to unboil egg whites—turning them from a solid back into a liquid—and the process behind it promises to help lower the production cost of cancer drugs and other expensive medications.

26-Jan-15   By: Mario Aguilar

Thanks to Daft Punk, the 1990s French "touch" electronic music scene has its legendary figures, masks and vocoder robot voices and button pushing and all. We've got the sound and look, but seriously, we're missing a little fiction to glorify the music's rise into one of the more influential electronic music movements ever.

Sub-Atomic Particles Could Accelerate Themselves

​Sling TV Review: Holy Crap, We've Figured Out Internet Television

At some point, TV became complicated. It used to be this thing I would plop down in front of after school and mindlessly flip through. Then, in 2009, everything changed : analog signals were outlawed, and the new digital TV signals failed me in every way: my old television wasn't compatible, my house was too far from the broadcasting stations. A nearby traffic jam blocked the signal. For whatever reason, I gave up on regular TV years ago, and went digital. If it wasn't on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon, it didn't exist.
