I just noticed my last post was back in October. How did that happen? Guess my new job at EMC Corp has hogged all my time for the last two months.
I want to apologize to any that have come to visit this odd little publication and found no updates for such a long period.
This in no way means I have stopped my absorption of science and technology during my internet vacation.
OriginOil.com has premiered their permanent Technology showcase – LINK
Also a new method to turn freshly harvested algae into crude oil in 30 minutes was also posted over my break. – LINK
Emerging Objects had a wonderful showcase featured as well. Check out their Facebook page for news and updates. Here is some beautiful pictures from the site.
Yulex Corporation made some huge news with this announcement.
From Site – SGB Inc., an agricultural biotechnology company, and Yulex Corporation, a biomaterial company, announced today a collaboration to establish a genomics and molecular breeding platform focused on accelerating the crop improvement of Guayule as a sustainable source of biorubber that can replace traditional tropical or petroleum-based rubber for medical, consumer and industrial markets. – See more at: LINK
Of course CES 2014 – LINK – not much to say here, this is like a tech enthusiast’s Spring Break. Keep checking back for so much techie goodness.
There is a fantastic article on Elon Musk, which they mention the Falcon Heavy and the Model X, it gives me the shivers. LINK
Now for a Writing Prompt, because I said so.
Prompt – pick one of the companies above, read about one of their technologies, apply that tech in a new category of industry that they aren’t in yet, and try to show your audience how much impact that could have on a near future.
Example – OriginOil’s separation technology applied to the diary industry to enhance protein harvest and cheese making.
Have a wonderful first weekend,
