Tech and Science, Bits and Starstuff

Here are two features cross-posted to Tumbld Thoughts. This time, we will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web (I) and be introduced to readings that accompany the first episode of the Cosmos reboot (II). 

I. Happy 25th, World Wide Web! You're so HTTP.



Celebrate the 20th anniversary of the World Wide Web with a summary of the Reddit with Tim Berners-Lee, and an emulator of the NCSA Mosaic browser. Here is a link to Berners-Lee's original proposal for the CERN Information Management system (circa 1989). And see what the next 20 years may (or may not) bring in terms of tech innovation in an NY Times magazine article on the generation gap in Silicon Valley.


II. Cosmos reboot, episode 1 recommended readings


It appears that the first episode of the Cosmos reboot was a success. While some things were glossed over and over-simplified, it is one successful remake. Here are a few relevant references:


Biography of Lucretius (author of "De Rerum Natura") and "On the Nature of Things" from the Internet Classics Archive.


"If the Moon Were Only One Pixel" by Josh Worth.

Q&A: Neil DeGrasse Tyson from National Geographic.

Carl Sagan's original "Spaceship of the Imagination" (YouTube).

Lenton, T.   Revolutions that made earth. Slideshow based on a book of the same name.

Chow, D.   The Universe: Big Bang to now in 10 easy steps. Space.com, October 18 (2011).
