Still being made and used by historical buffs (I've talked with a guy who was actively making stone tools to show how it was done), and a pair of anthropologists go around demonstrating how stone knives could be very good at taking apart animals that hunters had brought down. All that stuff is still being made and used, if only to show how it was made and used.

Not to mention, some of my better photos have been ones that I hadn't meant to take, or turned out wrong on first look, but a bit of cropping and playing turned it into something I really liked. The only time I actually delete a photo is if it's completely and totally worthless (like a completely blurry picture of my foot, or something, from when I'm walking across a field.)

+ - 10 Rules for Web 2.0 Businesses

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes: With many online companies either plain stuck in Web 1.0, or using a Web 2.0 facade on a Web 1.0 business, David Vellante, co-founder of The Wikibon Project, outlines what he calls his Ten 2.0 Rules — ten rules for 2.0 success. Vellante agrees with World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee that there is no definition for Web 2.0, but thinks this should not be a cop out for dropping the ball on starting a successful Web 2.0 venture. Included in his top ten rules are "Be ruthless with bad ideas and move on quickly" and "Don't take money from jerks." Vellante also suggests that we ship our Web 2.0 products whether or not they stink. "Get over it and ship the product," he writes. "Maybe Web 3.0 will be better."

Robotic Girlfriend Soon For Sale In Japan, Cheap 5

Corrupt writes "A Japanese firm has produced a 38 cm- (15 inch-) tall robotic girlfriend that kisses on command, to go on sale in September for around $175, with a target market of lonely adult men. Using her infrared sensors and battery power, the diminutive damsel named "EMA" puckers up for nearby human heads, entering what designers call its 'love mode.'" These are closed-mouth kisses, by the way.
