    A friend from work sent out an email with a link to his website with a ton of pictures from his travels in India and Europe. I thought I'd share them with you all. Thanks Ben.

    The Cost of War.

    Jake Here: Just thought I'd throw in my 2¢. The figures for Insuring Children. Um, we're almost at the roughly 55 million children between the ages of 5-17 according to the 2003 census. That's a lot of kids.

  3. Epson builds 40" OLED Television

    Sieko Epson OLED TelevisionMaybe I should make a category just for stuff about OLEDs. Epson demoes a 40" display, the largest thus far. Originally I read that the process for producing an OLED display was not as complecx as a LCD, clean rooms are less necessary. So the price would be less, but now they're saying it'll be comperable to an LCD. Great, the one thing I wish I could have is better, in theory, to current technology, but still costs $10,000 at Best Buy. Ugh.

    Update: Right after I finished this I noticed Engadget also had a post about this TV. It also includes a couple more links to information.

  4. 17th Century Gone Wild

    Apparently showing one's breast was popular in the 17th century. It is speculated that it was a sign of virility.

    I find this interesting considering how in the US we still have Puritan ideals skewing our views of things. I'm not saying we should have women walking around with their breasts exposed. Just that it bothers me when artists are attacked over things related to the whole Puritan belief system.
