Technology: old and new

Where does the time go? Not into sleeping, I’ll tell you that much. Here are a few of the lovely tidbits I’ve picked up in the past month, all with a technology/innovation theme:

First pair of ice skates discovered.

A 2300-year-old shipwreck carrying wine cargo was also discovered.

The Lemelson center for the study of innovation and invention. Makes the argument that science, technology, innovation, invention, and play are all connected (we’ve established this already, but for all the slow-learning, non-innovators out there, there is this). I actually found a whole bunch of groups that were working on this same idea – a collection of sci tech museums, conferences, and several academic groups. There is definitely a trend to combine computer science studies with creativity.
