Gamifying Education

Extra Credit is probably my favorite online series. And even though I’m not a gamer and haven’t really played since the days of Quake, I am fascinated by game culture and it’s impact on the rest of media and the world at large.

A Different Kind of Christian Demonstration

Jack sent me this story the other day and it really made me smile so wide. The volunteers wore black t-shirts with the phrase “I’m Sorry” on the front and held signs with messages of apology, on behalf of all Christians, for the way the church has treated the gay community.

The Oldest Living Things

I know this has been making the rounds fairly heavily, recently, but it’s a fascinating series! Rachel Sussman is searching for and photographing, you guessed it, the oldest living things in the world. Above is: Clonal Mojave Yucca (12,000 + years old; Mojave Desert, CA), Siberian Actinobacteria (400,000 years old; Neils Bohr Institute, Copenhagen) &…
