I have been ignoring both my blog and Twitter. Facebook has become my social media of choice, mostly because it’s easier to post links to articles and I find the threaded conversations easier to follow and take part in, also no 140 character limit on comments.

My 68 year old brain just can’t keep up with all three (Blogs, Twitter and Facebook)

What is your favorite social media site?

2) Dennis Hong: Making a car for blind drivers.

There are way too many who drive like they are blind. This is the kind of technology that can make driving as safe as we need it to be.

“Using robotics, laser rangefinders, GPS and smart feedback tools, Dennis Hong is building a car for drivers who are blind. It’s not a “self-driving” car, he’s careful to note, but a car in which a non-sighted driver can determine speed, proximity and route — and drive independently”
