    Accelerationism: how a fringe philosophy predicted the future we live in

    Half a century ago, in the great hippie year of 1967, an acclaimed young American science fiction writer, Roger Zelazny, published his third novel.

    When mulling over possible reasons for the alarming nastiness associated with the recent presidential election in the United States, I am reminded of my grade-school bully. Handsome, often charming, superbly athletic, the bully (let’s call him Mike) would frequently, usually without clear provocation, kick, punch and shove other classmates. Fortunately, for reasons not apparent at that time, he never bothered me.

    How Google ate CelebrityNetWorth.com

    Google’s Featured Snippets are not only often wrong, they’re also damaging to small businesses that depend on search traffic.

    Adding Solar Panels to Every Residential Roof in the U.S. Would Cover More Than 25% of the Nation's Total Electricity Needs

    Rooftop solar has become a hot topic in the recent decade as solar panels have come down in price to the point where you can see a return on your investment in as little as 24 months. Currently, about 1.5% of homes have solar panels installed on the roof removing the need for about 14 TW hours of power from utility companies. While this may seem like a drop in the bucket compared to the 4,090 TW hours required to power the country, it’s up considerably from the approximately 1 TW hour it was d...
