Some fun links flying around in today's POC Bundle
- A new format for the ESV. Also, I hear the official ESV Study Bible is slated for the fall...I know many have been waiting for that one.
- Looks like someone is creating the Matrix...well, at least for a pendulum. Researchers are creating a virtual pendulum that mimics the properties of a real world counterpart. See the link here. Very cool - you might just get to be Neo after all...then again, probably not. Although the artificial intelligence posse wants you to believe that a human being is just software running on a brain...I think there is a fundamental flaw in this thinking. Even so, for a programmer to keep the "state" of a human being in code so that it can be mimicked seems to be infinitely complex. There are optimists and pessiments of course.
- Some researchers are saying that we are afraid of being disconnected from technology and our interactions...interesting pdf.
- Lots of audio/video up now from the recent Text and Context conference put on by the Resurgence. I have heard "best conference ever" many times so I will likely try and pick a few of these to listen. Here is the link to the stuff.
- Praying about going to this Band of Bloggers thing. I like some young guys I met through blogs - but not sure I have the time...Should I go?
