Not One Direction

It has been a bit of a mess since Ballmer announced his resignation a few weeks ago. Already a company facing reevaluation of its direction, Microsoft is a bit lost - it’s almost they may not know how to answer succinctly the question: what does your company value and aspire to be?

Link of the Day: Rewired Nerves Control Robotic Leg

Nature posted a piece about a massive breakthrough - successful wiring of the brain to a prosthetic robotic leg. In the video, the man can be seen walking easily and even kicking a football - the first time this technology has been fully successful.

Doctor Octopus may not be that far, after all.

He looked up at me without any expression and simply stated, without emotion, “You have leukemia.” I heard each word as simply as it was stated and nodded in agreement.

Link of the Day: Who Gets Paid during Congress Shutdown

Song of the Day: Klangkarussell’s song “Sonnentanz” gets a reboot, this time with Will Heard’s vocals injecting a fresh summer feel to the song. In one of the best songs of the year, everything - from the synths, horns, xylophone, etc. - is perfect.

Just hit play, and you’ll see.

Lasting Mo’ments

Last week, Mariano Rivera pitched his last game ever. Many wonderful pieces have been written about the night, so I will redirect you to those that will much better recap the emotional moments better than I can. Instead, I want to pay my personal respects for Mariano.
