Lost Mine of Phandelver Starter Box Adventure Part 1 (DnD Next, 5e)


A new group starting an adventure using the starter box for Dungeons and Dragons 5e. It gets bumpy.  Everyone is relatively new to 5e and Roll20 so they stumble and bumble their way through some parts, but that is what DnD is all about.

Google's Driverless Car - Sebastian Thrun

Sebastian Thrun helped build Google's amazing driverless car, powered by a very personal quest to save lives and reduce traffic accidents. Jaw dropping video shows the DARPA Challenge-winning car motoring through busy city traffic with no one behind the wheel, and dramatic test drive footage from TED2011 demonstrates how fast the thing can really go.

We are all cyborgs now - Amber Case

Technology is evolving us, says Amber Case, as we become a screen-staring, button-clicking new version of homo sapiens. We now rely on "external brains" (cell phones and computers) to communicate, remember, even live out secondary lives. But will these machines ultimately connect or conquer us?
