Remember Better Place? Well according to CNet they're coming to Silicon Valley... with a $1B electric car network. How excellent... and a perfect place to gain a foothold, too. They're swimming against the economic tide right now, of course, but let's hope they make it. ArsTechnica has more.
Remember the premise behind Jurassic Park? In the book / movie scientists cloned dinosaurs from DNA found in ancient mosquitoes trapped in amber.

Wow, how cool is that?

Photo of the day: this bear diving into the arctic sea. Excellent!
Goes well with this photo montage in the Boston Globe: Scenes from Antarctica. Just stunning, amazing and beautiful.
