Interesting Links 30 December 2013

Not a lot to share this week. Last week was Christmas and I spent a lot less time on the Internet than usual. However if you are looking for a few interesting things including some videos take a look below.

How the Amazon Warehouse Works is a fascinating look at how small robots make packing your Amazon order fast and efficient.  Has the future of warehousing arrived? Perhaps> The software behind this is something that impresses me most of all even though that is the least visible part of the operation.

Someone pointed me to a brief video of Grace Hopper talking about what a nanosecond is and why it matters.

What are the “21st Century Skills”? Garth Flint takes on that question if depth. It got me thinking and it will get you thinking as well.

A Brief, Incomplete, and Mostly Wrong History of Programming Languages Computer Science humor that really gave me a laugh. Read it for the fun of it.

Rebecca Dovi@superCompSci tweeted a link to a 3D printer comparison chart. This is a very handy chart of proven commercially available 3D printers and 3D printer kits

Come back tomorrow as I review the top posts from this blog over the last year.
