Better than google, Costume, New blog software
There is a new jacket in development that promises to end the suffering of animals used in the production of leather clothing. "Using a biodegradable polymer as a base, the team coated it with 3T3 mouse cells to form connective tissue and topped it up with human bone cells in the hope of creating a stronger layer of skin. The jacket is being grown inside a specially designed bioreactor that acts as a surrogate body. The group hopes that once the polymer degrades, a whole jacket that maintains its shape and integrity will be left behind."
Here's a hypothetical discussion:

I'm thinking of switching blog software. Blogger is plagued by performance and other issues that are starting to get on my nerves. I'm looking at Word Press, movable type, Radio Userland or possibly just writing my own blog software in PHP or ASP.net. Now that mono is out and .Net is legitamately cross platform I won't feel guilty going that route though PHP is better able to handle MySQL in my hairy opinion. Suggestions welcome.
