DailyDirt: Getting A Crowd Together...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There have been a few interesting crowdfunding and crowdsourcing projects in recent years -- solving some really difficult problems or just creating cool stuff (out of stuff that didn't seem so cool). Here are just a few more examples of crowd projects that are out there (and are possibly a bit "out there" too). By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    So if the sound is played through the phone speakers and picked up with the phone mic, I doubt there is a sufficient amount of isolation to limit the vibration through the phone.
    Probably not going to get a lot of sound traveling through the vacuum of space but then that is why we do experiments.

    They Should Have Used An Iphone

    If they'd used Apple's platform, then they could be sure all the apps were vetted to be malware-free. But by spreading Android, the well-known malware magnet, into space, who knows what virus infections they could be spreading to other worlds? This is just irresponsible.

    Agreed. These open platforms have to go. They're putting all of our information in jeopardy. I'm just happy that my iPhone and Mac aren't susceptible to malware at all.

    I'm pretty sure they could have done the experiment of "does sound travel through vacuum" without going into space....
