Random Stumbles - Earth Alive & A New Grid

First of all, I stumbled upon a website that if HALF of it is accurate, it is pretty stunning. Using statistical data,, shows a live animated representation of births, deaths, and carbon emissions around the world.

Second interesting stumble is a story by Jonathan Leake, Science Editor of British newspaper, the Sunday Times. His recent story 'Coming Soon: Superfast Internet' is some serious food for thought. The implications are beyond my comprehension (the story suggests that it may be beyond the scientists who are working on it, so I don't feel entirely stupid). We aren't even finished exploring the capacity of the current Internet! There are some interesting comments on the story, but let us know what your thoughts are here too!
