] It is just a name. I got the idea to change the name of
] the board game "Monopoly" to "Blog-log-poly" and then to
] "Blog-poly".

] It is just a game. It is fun to use the board to lay out
] the Blogosphere Ecosystem. It helps me to think and learn
] about blogging culture by transforming the original game
] into this version. I had to think about which company and
] enterprise to choose and set up first on the board. The
] space is limited, so I picked well known names in
] blogging industry.

Monkeys Adapt Robot Arm as Their Own
Topic: Science 8:43 pm EDT, May 10, 2005

] Monkeys that learn to use their brain signals to control
] a robotic arm are not just learning to manipulate an
] external device, Duke University Medical Center
] neurobiologists have found. Rather, their brain
] structures are adapting to treat the arm as if it were
] their own appendage.

] The finding has profound implications both for
] understanding the extraordinary adaptability of the
] primate brain and for the potential clinical success of
] brain-operated devices to give the handicapped the
] ability to control their environment.

] The analysis revealed that while the animals were still able to
] use their own arms, some brain cells formerly used for that
] control shifted to control of the robotic arm.

] The idea for the next experiment is that by using vision and
] touch, we're actually going to create inside the brains of these
] animal a vivid perceptual image of what it is to have a third arm.

Microsoft launches Thought Thieves film competition
Topic: Miscellaneous 8:35 pm EDT, May 10, 2005

] Microsoft has launched the Thought Thieves short film
] competition, inviting film makers aged 14 and over to
] make a movie on the theme of 'How intellectual property
] theft affects both individuals and society'.

] 'The subject of intellectual property theft is often seen
] as legalistic and frankly a bit dull,' said Alex Hilton,
] anti-piracy manager at Microsoft. 'The truth is that
] intellectual property is really about people's creations
] such as software, films, books, music or a fashion line.
] When someone has worked hard on a creation, it's unfair
] to see it stolen from in front of their eyes.'

I read a paper about this topic recently that was very fascinating so I found it interesting when I ran across this.

] We're creating a history of video games, not just with
] input from experts (we'll use some of course) but
] primarily using a lot of real players' experiences with
] the role of video games in their lives.

] So what did you play? What games stand out in your memories? Did
] you play in groups, or by yourself, did this change over time, or
] from game to game? What skills do you think you learned from each
] game? Has a videogame ever helped you in "real life"?

] BME: What's your background with RFID technology?

] AG: I have no RFID background at this point, though I
] do have an extensive tinkering and gadgetry background. I
] like to mod things, and I guess it was only natural that
] it extended to my own body.

] I became interested in RFID and other alternate means of
] identification a while back. I constantly lose my keys
] and my wallet-yeah, I'm one of those guys. So
] I was sitting around thinking about keys and credit
] cards, and the obvious truth that these chunks of metal
] and pieces of plastic were really representing me and
] basically identifying me to whatever mechanisms and
] systems they worked with, be it my front door deadbolt or
] my bank account. I basically just wanted to get rid of my
] keys and wallet.
