After the whole Ok Go buzz caused by their Open Letter two days ago, Wired interviewed them. The interview is solid and they include two new Ok Go music videos, which are clever if not overly catchy.
Number 8 - The Growing Reality of Aquaculture
A quick look at fish farming. Can it be made sustainable? A few billion more hungry mouths on the planet are hoping so.
Number 7 - Moderne Burger
This is from a series of articles on how to eat food from all around the world, without leaving Vancouver. \ Of course, the "Moderne Burger" is just food from ... well, here, so it's not really that ethnic. Nevertheless, the description and image left my mouth watering, and it's definitely on my list of places to hunt down.
Number 6 - Slime Mold
This has been covered up and down and all-across-the-internet, last few days, but Wired has the best pictures. Some scientists discovered that slime mold can form fairly optimal paths between 'food nodes', and that if they lay out a system that looks like Tokyo, they get optimal paths that look like the Tokyo rail system.
Number 5 - Gallager Codes
Before I read this article, I did not even know what a "Shannon Limit" was. (It's still a little fuzzy, I'll admit.)

Number 1 - The BoingBoing Guide To The 2010 Indie Games Student Showcase
It's a long name, but the content is worth it. This is the showcase from which Portal's predecessor, "Narbacular Drop" - and other, similarly unusual, clever, or just strange games have been born. ("Bontago", for example. ) Most of the games can even be played, right now. So get to it! It's the weekend!
