More awesome stuff from the web. This time, we look at the sound of money, the dangers of social media, and a CAD program from the days when computers measured their memory in bites. Plus, some Harrison Ford.
  • That there? That’s the sweet, sweet sound of internet commerce. Hear BitCoin transactions in real time. So how much do you think a BitCoin is really worth, anyway?

  • The incredible social media cautionary tale of Adam Orth.  The tl:dr version is that Adam Orth lost his job because he wasn’t thinking when he made some public tweets. I guess we can start counting the days till someone else ends up loosing their job because they didn’t pay enough attention to social media.

  • Harry Potter Quidditch meme:  AKA. Pottering.  If the Russians had of had broom technology in the 80’s, Red Dawn would have been a very short (but even cooler) movie. Wolverines!!!!

    Well, this is just a little bit closer to reality now.

  • Avengers get medieval of the medieval times:

No Shia Labeouf or nuking fridges in this one, we promise.

  • Check out this candid interview with Han Solo Harrison Ford on Jimmy Kimmel that are in no way related to the new Star Wars movie.
  • How Animals Eat Their Food: This just had me in stitches. And at 41 million hits, I’m guessing I’m not alone.
  • And, because we’re all about mixing up art and science…
