Today is the 50 anniversary of "the mother of all demos", given by Douglas Engelbart. In 1968, he decided to skip 40 years of technological progress and introduce the internet, markup languages, the mouse, collaborative editors and videoconferences in just one hour and a half. Just amazing.

If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

An average car emits 650g of COβ‚‚ per km driven. An average person travels 25km to get to work each day. Commuting by car emits an average of 32.5kg of COβ‚‚ daily. (Based on data from the US.)

An adult tree absorbs up to 21.8kg of COβ‚‚ per year. It would take one tree 1.5 years to absorb what one person can emit in a single day.

In the US alone, over 6 million more cars are registered annually. Each year we destroy 18.7 million acres of forest worldwide, killing roughly 1.1 billion trees.


Interesting study by Wikimedia Foundation into the availability of Wikipedia's references across different subjects. Sad to see that Chemistry ranks very low, with a high percentage of pay-walled references.
