From James comes an article about a study that seemingly links IQ of children with their sleep time This comes as a bit of a burn to me being a morning person It'd be interesting to read the original study if anyone knows the link.
From Sequoia comes an article that could see the origin of biological and light based computers

And the last talks about a thin coating modeled after moth eyes that can make any glass non-reflective.
