Water, Google, Christianity, and Energy

A new chip can cleanse water to be suitable for drinking. The eight inches of these (postage stamp sized) chips can produce four gallons of water per hour, while using as much electricity as a light bulb. If these things become mass produced and affordable, that'll rock the developing world! What a news report to hear in the same week as World Water Day.

Google pessimists ask what the point was, while tech-savvy Googlers are unaffected. Can Google incite larger change?

These maps of Christianity make me think about how religious views intersect with political views.

How will traveling wave reactors affect the energy scene? On a side note, TED is pretty neat.
