Whither Google Plus?
Head of Google+ Bradley Horowitz will head up Google Photos … Hangouts to be split off too… So… what will happen to Google+ and does anyone care?
or looks like we know –  G+ will be “Streams” Photos become it’s own service… (Read-Write)

Net Neutrality, anyone? Anyone?

General Geek:

Meanwhile in a basement lab… bacteria are being used to power robots?
Two grad students have figured out how to get bacteria to power microscopic shapes and get them to move around…. vid over at Science Friday, really cool.

Coming soon to the WCBN: Cinematic for the People!

Cinematic For The People is a home-grown, made-for-the-internet, “TV Series” that revolves around riffing movies, shorts, and sometimes serials. The show is kinda like MST3K, if you ever heard of them.

In 1999 they were actually on TV for about a year. A bit later, they started going around to conventions and doing live riffing. In 2012 they started recording themselves online and releasing the series to the internet.

Come 2015, they will be starting their 3rd season! Also, they will be joining the Webcast Beacon Network (Their WCBN homepage is here)!

Until season 3 starts, you can catch up on their past two seasons here, check out their main website; subscribe to their YouTube channel, as well as watch other special episodes there, not presently collected on the WCBN archive.

Still confused about what CFTP is? Well listen to the horse’s mouth:
