Friday Links!

From Steven Davis, and this might be the first furniture thought-piece I've ever linked to (and it's a great read): What is the Future of the Past?

From C. Lee, and boy, this is tempting: Build A Killer Amiga Emulator For Under $100 With The Raspberry Pi 3. This was an amazing woman: Obituary: Millie Dunn Veasey, pioneering sergeant turned rights activist. This is intriguing: The Mystery of the Continuously Functioning Battery From 1840. And so is this: What scientists found trapped in a diamond: a type of ice not known on Earth. Both amusing and thoughtful: The Secret to a Longer Life? Don’t Ask These Dead Longevity Researchers. This is not good: Most Americans think artificial intelligence will destroy other people’s jobs, not theirs.

From Wally, and this is fascinating: 'Grandma's food': How changing tastes are killing German restaurants - and the future of them may be in Richmond. This is very clever, and almost hypnotically slow: Rube Goldberg spinners. This is brutal: Toxic Management Cost an Award-Winning Game Studio Its Best Developers.

From Ken Piper, and it's quite remarkable: Dead man balking: Court rejects Romanian man's claim that he is, in fact, alive.

The future: Meet the startup that makes milk—without cows.

From Griffen Cheng, and this is thought-provoking: How Psychopaths See the World.
