Propeller Beanies / The story of the geek\'s icon MP3

Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! When I write technical books and articles, I generally assume my audience is composed of ordinary people, not programmers or computer experts. I try to provide enough context and detail so that any reasonably intelligent person can get the gist of what I’m saying, even without prior experience in the topic I’m dis... Source: itotd.com

    Rise of the Bagel / The hole truth MP3

    I love Friday mornings. It used to be that I looked forward to Fridays simply because they were the last work day of the week. Then I began working for an employer with the wonderful tradition of providing free bagels and cream cheese for the entire company every Friday morning. They were good bagels, too. Not only was this a great incentive to get to work on time, it put me in a proper frame of mind to be productiv...

    Revenge of the Analog Clock / Time for a pie chart MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! Author Douglas Adams famously made fun of earthlings for being “so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.” Shortly before he died, Adams gave a talk at the University of California, Santa Barbara (not far from his home), at the end of which there was a brief question-and-a...

    Helioseismology / Listening to the inside of the Sun MP3

    Although in general I have tremendous faith in science, there are a few concepts I’ve always had some trouble grasping. For example, textbooks have told us for decades—with great certainty—details about the interior of the Earth. We know how thick the crust and mantle are, what the core is made of, and how hot it is (among many other facts), even though no one has managed to dig or drill even hal...

    Starlite / The mystery miracle heatproof plastic MP3

    In the early 1990s, magazine articles and television shows in Great Britain and the United States ran a series of stories about an incredible new invention: a type of plastic that could withstand virtually any amount of heat. The material’s properties confounded scientists, but even more amazing was that its creator, Maurice Ward, had no academic credentials—he was, in fact, a former hairdresser from No...

    NextBus / Friendlier mass transit through technology MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! One evening Morgen and I were at a dreams group meeting way across town. The most direct route home was by way of San Francisco’s MUNI light rail line, but as we approached our stop, we saw that we had just missed a train. Knowing how infrequently trains tend to run late at night, a friend who was waiting with us wonder...
