The Case of Verge Genomics | In the Pipeline
Ash Jogalekar summed it up perfectly on Twitter yesterday, as shown at right. The problems with Alzheimer’s, ALS, and Parkinson’s drug discovery are not data handling problems. The important problems with drug discovery in general are not data handling problems, and unfortunately there are many people who would like to think that they are. Who would perhaps like to think that everything could be solved if we could just obtain and correlate enough data. But what we’re short of is insights, ideas, and understanding, and those come slowly, painfully, and expensively.

Nintendo Labo™ Creators Contest - Winners
These are fantastic. And they also make me think: you could *kind* of do some of these if you could pair a bunch of Apple remotes (gyros, accelerometers - but without the light sensing) with an iPad and connect them up to Swift Playgrounds. Nintendo have got something very nice here.

AWS Snowball Edge - Petabyte-Scale Data Transport with Compute
“AWS Snowball Edge is a data migration and edge computing device with 100TB of capacity and support for computing tasks via Amazon EC2 applications or AWS Lambda functions. Customers use these devices to collect, process and store data in environments with intermittent connectivity (such as manufacturing, industrial, and transportation) or in extremely remote locations (such as military or maritime operations) before shipping it back to AWS. These devices may also be rack mounted and clustered together to build larger, temporary installations.” Ok you can call it that but let’s just agree that this is a remote transportable node for The Machine/Northern Lights.

UltraVNC - View topic - Windows 10 and mirror drivers
bottom line:
"The mirror driver shouldn't be used on win8+ as you get same performance through the use of w8hook built-in."
