Playas & Hatas, the new card game of hip hop culture. Lose your job? Go to jail? Gain points. Read a book? Get a degree? Lose points. It would be funny if it wasn't true. Can an MMOG version be far behind? Oh wait, it's already on its way.
An interview with Ray Kurzweil on the upcoming age of transferring human intelligence to silicon. As an added bonus, the interviewer is the redoubtable Cory Doctorow. As I've said before, I think going electronic is the only way we'll beat back the challenge of the intelligent machines.
An unbelievable comic book, using action figures, that shows what happens when The Thing of the Fantastic Four discovers that he's Jewish.
