Criterion Announces New Streaming Service To Replace FilmStruck: Become a Charter Subscriber Today

Late last month, Turner and Warner Bros. Digital Networks announced--much to the chagrin of cinephiles--that it planned to close Filmstruck, a streaming service that specialized in arthouse and classic films. Fans and celebrities--from Christopher Nolan to Guillermo del Toro--quickly got behind a petition to save the streaming service. And today their wish came true, more or less. The Criterion Collection and WarnerMedia just issued a press release, declaring that "the Criterion Channel wil...

The PJ Mode Persuasive Cartography Collection at Cornell University Library is such an archive.

Why I Don’t Tell People I’m a Sex Educator (Even Though I Should)

It’s only been this year that I have come around to calling myself a sex educator. I am late in the game compared to some of my fellow bloggers and authors, perhaps because I failed to see how this hobby could become a legitimate career for anyone. Before this, I would describe myself as a freelance writer who often, but not always, wrote about sex. While this isn’t wrong, it’s not the complete picture. I compartmentalized the work I am paid for and the words I write on this blog, despite much o...

The Osteopathic Oath vs. the Hippocratic Oath

It was during the first few weeks of medical school that I realized that I was joining a secret society. Like many physicians, I was called to medicine at a young age.

Illumipaper: paper that can selectively illuminate to provide interactivity

Illumipaper is a well-developed prototype from Interactive Media Lab Dresden; the researchers behind it used a variety of techniques to create regular-seeming paper with all the traditional characteristics (it can be crumpled, folded, written on with pen and ink, etc); but a wireless controller allows it to be selectively illuminated to provide interactivity (e.g. to provide tips on homework problems). It's a fascinating project that really feels futuristic -- like something that is yet to ...
