Introducing Paper by FiftyThree 

We just launched our first product and I could not be more pleased with the result. 

Paper is where ideas begin. It’s the easiest and most beautiful way to create on iPad. Capture your ideas as sketches, diagrams, illustrations, notes or drawings and share them across the web. Download “Paper by FiftyThree” free from the App Store. Then buy tools in the in-App store.

What’s special for everyone on Tumblr, is that you can share pages directly from Paper as a post. We noticed that people use Tumblr just like a digital notebook, and now you have a way to create pages. It’s simple and beautiful. Give it a try.

Create on.

New 3D printing technique could revolutionize manufacturing.
Stratasys and Optomec Inc. have announced that the companies have successfully completed a joint development project to merge 3D printing and printed electronics to create the world’s first fully printed hybrid structure.
The initial demonstration used an aerosol jet system to print a conformal sensor, antenna and circuitry directly onto the wing of a UAV model, using a fused deposition modeling (FDM) process. 
“Manufacturers can implement this hybrid technology in a multitude of applications, not just in aerospace,” says Optomec’s Ken Vartanian. “This technology can benefit numerous industries by allowing thinner, lighter, fully functional structures that cost less to manufacture.”

Red Hat becomes the world’s first billion-dollar Linux developer
With $297 million in sales in the fourth quarter alone, Red Hat became the first open-source company in history to post over $1 billion in revenue for a single fiscal year on Wednesday. Unlike rival developers like Canonical, which releases its “Ubuntu” Linux distribution for free, Red Hat uses an annual subscription model for distribution of its creations. That model allows for more accurate revenue projections, giving the company the ability to project that they’d hit $1 billion in revenues way back in June of last year.  (Photo by Jared Smith) source

Outlier: creating the most high-tech pants you’ve ever worn
Five years ago, New Yorker Abe Burmeister decided that he needed some new pants. He’d ripped through every previous pair of jeans he’d owned through biking to work every day, so he went on a grand adventure to find the perfect pair of agile yet classy pants. All he came up with after a year of looking was a pair of Swiss shorts made of some moisture wicking and stretchy material he’d never seen before. He called up the shorts makers, who said they had no intention of selling any pants. So Abe Burmeister decided he’d just make his own pants, even though he knew nothing about pants.

Teaching Wikipedia to Write Itself

infoneer-pulse:

Say next week there is an election in France (okay it’s not for a few more weeks, but just suppose) and suppose that the challenger, Francois Hollande, ekes out a victory over Nicolas Sarkozy, the current president. What happens next?

This isn’t a question of politics but of information — how does the world’s information sources come to reflect a French changing of the guard? For Wikipedia, one of the web’s largest and most up-to-date compendia of facts, the answer is complicated. It’s not just the Wikipedia entry for “France” or “President of France” that requires quick updating, but many, many more pages that reference Sarkozy, and not just in English or French but in the more than 280 languages in which Wikipedia appears. Who will update all those references?

Currently, some 90,000 volunteer Wikipedia editors. Those heroes of the collaborative web do the yeoman’s work that keeps Wikipedia updated. But could there be an easier way? Could all of those changes happen automatically?
