Digital media makes my heart beat faster. Ex- CNNMoney, Fortune, (the first one). PGP:

Sweden: why the Scandinavian nation is the real winter wonderland — The moment I'm in the water I want out. It's not so much the biting cold that gets me but the sudden weakness. My legs turn numb and useless, my arms limp and heavy while my chest feels like it's been whacked with an icy sledgehammer.

National Geographic Traveller (UK) — "What I put on the plate is not food, but rather my spirit and passion," declares Lee Jong Guk, a reclusive self-taught chef and fervent champion of authentic Korean cooking. And judging by the dishes presented, Lee has a profound lust for gastronomy, with his complex culinary creations that could easily be presented as art.

National Geographic Traveller (UK) — Just looking down on the 'Streif' is enough to make my heart stop. Teetering on the edge of this notorious, nail-biting ski course, I soon understand why it's widely regarded as the toughest and scariest downhill ski course on the planet.

Tinkerer’s Lament — Oh, RadioShack, spurned by shoppers, loathed by investors, mocked ( mocked, mocked) and teetering on bankruptcy. But that's not my RadioShack. Or the legacy I'll embrace. Sure, today's ubiquitous stores are bursting with cheap burner phones, generic chargers, knock-off robotic toys, and every nearly forgotten thing from media's pre-digital age.

Tinkerer's Lament: "RadioShack today is just a vestige of a what was once the dominant hands-on DIY culture."…

ISIS releases snippet of new Nickelback single, threaten to unleash full song if demands not met — Today, a senior ISIS Public Retaliations Officer and the organisation's Chief Torturer Abu-Hassan bin-harem announced that a new kind of warfare may soon be on our hands. "We have recently obtained a new type of weapon. Our Long-Acoustic Range Device (LARD) is capable of damage beyond anyone's wildest imagination."

Japanese food: Chopsticks not included — A feast for the eyes as well as the palate, mastering the art of eating in Japan takes some practice. Earn your seafood stripes in Tokyo's famous Tsukiji Market, move on to the city's coolest sushi spots, then kick back with some ritual kaiseki cuisine, while admiring views of nearby Mount Fuji.

Chris Peacock — I love this! The HTML5 group in Toronto showed how to control a ARDrone 2 with JavaScript. And not Node.js based either! Purely in browser.
