Researcher Argues Data Paints 'Big Red Flashing Arrow' Toward Wuhan Market as Covid-19 Origin

CNN reports on researcher Michael Worobey, "who specializes in tracing the genetic evolution of viruses," who has now found "considerable evidence that the virus arose in an animal, and did not start circulating until the end of 2019." One case especially stood out — that of a 41-year-old accountant who allegedly got sick on December 8, 2019 and who had no connection to the market. The case has been cited as evidence the pandemic must not have started at the market. Worobey found records tha...

Recently Austrian developer Geoffrey Huntley announced they'd created a 20-terabyte archive of all NFTs on the Ethereum and Solana blockchains. But one NFT startup company now says they tried downloading the archive — and discovered most of it was zeroes.

A 20TB torrent would take several days to download, necessitating a pretty beefy internet connection and more d...

Spirited: Ryan Reynolds And Will Ferrell's Christmas Carol Musical Will Have Music By Dear Evan Hansen Songwriters

A few months ago, a TikTok trend emerged where people would sing each voice part of the Mika song "Grace Kelly" to prove their vocal range, and the sound would spin-off into its own trend as the backdrop to tell a story that would increasingly get weirder or wilder with every new moment. During the trend's peak, an unlikely duo appeared to take a crack at it, with Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell dueting the vocal parts of "Grace Kelly."Reynolds captioned the video with "Late to the Grace Kelly tr...

This week Mike Bouma (Slashdot reader #85,252) looked back nearly 30 years to the glory days of the world's first true 32-bit CD based home console — Commodore's Amiga32.

Now that Alexa, Siri and Google have moved in, it’s only a matter of time before some of us are left out in the cold, says Emma BeddingtonI came into the kitchen recently to find my husband cradling our electricity smart meter with the kind of tender attention more usually directed to a new-born, his phone clutched in his free hand. “You didn’t turn your office heater off last night,” he said.
