New Google+ ‘PG-13′ feature allows you to restrict posts from minors or readers in foreign lands

A new feature has just launched for Google’s social networking service Google+ that allows you to restrict your posts based on your audience’s age or location. This way, you can set filters for the content you create to make sure it’s not viewable by children, or that you can share your Google+ posts to your peers without the peering eyes of parents. Businesses can also use the new feature to restrict content based on where they want promotions to happen.

I wish these were real dollar bills because they are brilliant

I wish these were real dollar bills because they are brilliant

Artist James Charles redesigned the US money by adding contemporary pop-culture icons. In this series called American Iconomics the classic green bills are modified or changed completely with the faces of Yoda, Einstein, or Mr. T.

I understand the historical reasons why old presidents are portrayed in the US bills. But the fact that George W. Bush has more chances to be in one of them than Warhol or Jimmy Hendrix is something I don’t get—considering the impact they had in the society at large.

Hong Kong Protesters Use Mesh Networks To Organize

wabrandsma sends this article from New Scientist: Hong Kong’s mass protest is networked. Activists are relying on a free app that can send messages without any cellphone connection. Since the pro-democracy protests turned ugly over the weekend, many worry that the Chinese government would block local phone networks. In response, activists have turned to the FireChat app to send supportive messages and share the latest news. On Sunday alone, the app was downloaded more than 100,000 times in Hong Kong, its developers said. FireChat relies on "mesh networking," a technique that allows data to zip directly from one phone to another via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Ordinarily, if two people want to communicate this way, they need to be fairly close together. But as more people join in, the network grows and messages can travel further. Mesh networks can be useful for people who are caught in natural disasters or, like those in Hong Kong, protesting under tricky conditions. FireChat came in handy for protesters in Taiwan and Iraq this year."

Joey Hudy: From High School Kid to Celebrity Maker to Intel Intern (Video)

Timothy Lord met Joey Hudy at an Intel Dev Forum. Joey is possibly the youngest intern Intel has ever hired, but he’s made a big splash in the ‘Maker world’, so having him around is probably worth it for the PR value alone. Joey is obviously pretty bright — he’s been called one of the 10 smartest kids in the world — but let’s face it: he’s had a lot of luck to help him along. Let’s face it: Not many high school kids get invited to White House science fairs and demonstrate their air cannons to the president. (Alternate Video Link)
