36 Countries, 3 Spices from Each - Here's a cute and interesting infographic that identifies the key spices used in cuisines around the globe.
The Next Thing Silicon Valley Needs to Disrupt Big Time - Many of us can sadly vouch for the accuracy of this article. Ageism, sexism, and cool-ism run rampant in tech, especially start-ups.
Advertisers Can Now Offer App Installs Directly Inside Mobile Twitter Apps - Twitter is becoming increasingly robust in how much you can do with one 140-character tweet (see #AmazonCart). This feature does a lot to keep users in Twitter, eases ability to download apps, and further reduces the tyranny that is the poorly organized App Store.
How The PayPal Mafia Redefined Success in Silicon Valley - Though it might seem hard to believe, the big Silicon Valley companies (eBay/PayPal, Google, Facebook, Yahoo!) seem to be the tech industry's best incubators. Many of today's successful startups were founded by veterans of these massive companies. So, why does working for a big company give you access to monetary and talent resources?

Material World: How Google Discovered What Software is Made Of - Fascinating look into the thinking behind Google’s design initiative.
Custom Built Oculus Rift & GoPro Rig Lets You Experience Life in the Third Person - Watch the video. Users look absurd but the experience is super cool so who cares.
Simpsons characters made in pure CSS - You read that right. See Bart, Lisa, Marge, and Apu in all their CSS glory. We're impressed.
