So Google Reader is shutting down. This is obviously worrisome, mostly because the deprecation schedule is tight. But this is also a great news because Google Reader stopped innovating 5 years ago and yet was still the most visible RSS reader out there. [...] There are actually a ton of readers and I’ll focus on the web ones, because the web is my thing.

IDG-tidningen ”PC för Alla” har testat sex olika robotdammsugare. Allt ifrån enklare, billiga modeller från en tusenlapp till mer avancerade med ett pris på över 5.000 kronor.
Testets vinnare blev den dyraste modellen, Neato XV-25 (en förbättrad version av Neato XV-15), som även är den enda med 360 graders laserskanner som kartlägger rummet. Enligt ”PC för Alla” är det också den modell som har bäst sugförmåga.
Man konstaterar också att robotdammsugarna ännu inte är redo att ersätta den vanliga dammsugaren. Ett optimalt hem för en robotdammsugare har stora öppna ytor, är sparsamt möblerat, har inga sladdar eller mattor på golvet och eventuella trösklar bör vara låga.

Teamwork and collaboration are critical to mission achievement in any organization that has to respond quickly to changing circumstances. My research in the U.S. intelligence community has not only affirmed that idea but also surfaced a number of mistaken beliefs about teamwork that can sidetrack productive collaboration. Here are six of them.

There are still plenty of ideas out there, ranging from the extremely ambitious — such as Elon Musk’s desire to fly to the Red Planet in the next two decades – to the completely bizarre – like the MarsOne reality-show/one-way-suicide-mission combo.
Here we take a look at historical Mars plans, both crazy and sane, and the few that really stood a good chance at becoming reality.

Uchronia: The Alternate History List is a bibliography of over 3100 novels, stories, essays and other printed material involving the "what ifs" of history.
The genre has a variety of names, but it is best known as alternate history. In an alternate history, one or more past events are changed and the subsequent effects on history somehow described. This description may comprise the entire plotline of a novel, or it may just provide a brief background to a short story. Perhaps the most common themes in alternate history are "What if the Nazis won World War II?" and "What if the Confederacy won the American Civil War?"
