What Is It About Porn? An Interview With The Founders Of TheWorstDrug, A NSFW GIF Site
Porn is the new Tumblr. It seems that everyone with a CS degree and a little free time is trying to cash in (or at least dabble) in the world of online sexuality, a happenstance that I'd chalk up to the ubiquity of boobies online and the potential for perceived riches.

The Saturday Evening Post Finally Comes To iOS, With Help From Yudu
The Saturday Evening Post has a prominent spot in the history of American magazines. It's where artist Norman Rockwell made a name for himself, and it has published classic American authors like Edgar Allan Poe and F. Scott Fitzgerald. But if you had no idea that it was still around, you're not alone — the magazine's technology director Steve Harman said that many people "are surprised we're still publishing."

But the innovation is also powering a revolution of a different kind. An emerging class of creatives are using 3D printing techniques, not to either save or destroy the world and the people in it, but simply create a little beauty along the way. These creatives, makers of the new “handmade” goods, are selling their art in online storefronts like Etsy and Shapeways, as well as within brick-and-mortar stores, and even museums. They range from technically adept programmers who never dabbled in hands-on art involving paint ...
Illinois Library Embraces Crowdfunding To Bring Its Patrons A 3D Printer (And A Giant Hulk Statue)
Retooling the traditional public library for a more technically savvy populace is no small feat, especially when library budgets across the U.S. have been gutted these past few years. That sad state of events has forced some libraries to take matters into their own hands. Consider the case of the Northlake Public Library in Northlake, Illinois -- it wants to give its communinity (and especially the town's children) access to a slew of new digital creation tools to help inspire the next generation of makers and artists, and it's decided to turn to Indiegogo in hopes of making it happen.
