OK, this is so cool...

Amazing and wonderful. My guess is dolphins use a lot of full-body language.

Clara Ma... growing up at JPL


Clara Ma, the girl who named the Mars Curiosity mission, is finishing up her internship at NASA, and writes about it on her Martian Diaries.

Clara Ma is one of my heroes, and young people like her really give me hope for the future.

Geek VS Hollywood

You know all those cool drawing-of-the-sword sound effects? WRONG! :P

Let's hope he doesn't find a similar nitpick with drawing lightsabers!

App Camp For Girls!

Our pal Jean MacDonald's awesome App Camp for Girls Indiegogo project needs your help to address the gender imbalance among software developers! They've already raised their initial goals, and are now hoping to top it up to $100,000 in the next few days.

Jean's vision: give some smart, creative girls the chance to learn how to build apps, to be inspired by women instructors, and to get exposure to software development as a career. Jean and crew hope to grow their non-profit organization into a national force, with programs in multiple cities, helping thousands of girls. I can't think of a better way to inspire a new generation of techie women, and perhaps transform an industry, ... so take a few moments and help thirty-two girls kick APP this summer!
