This week's picks, all quick and nasty:
1. DNA sequencing in the palm of your hand, and run by USB (yes, it is very cool!): Nature News: Oxford Nanopore
2. Possibly one of the best sites on the interwebs - full of science, art, philosophy, music, books, and great lists. Go pick the brains of the internet: Brain Pickings
3. Want to be an astronomer for a few hours (or days, or months)? Check out Galaxy Zoo, and help with characterising just what is out there: Galaxy Zoo
4. Regina Spektor releases new music - it is glorious and just a little saddening thinking of all those paintings 'imprisoned' in galleries: All the Rowboats
5. Next time you are bored, play this game. You hit cute things, and if you don't do it fast enough you literally die from boredom! Bored to Death
Ok, you're late, you're late for a very important date! Better go focus on that....
