Daily Twitter Links for Wednesday 8 August July 2012
I've had quite a few comments that I share too many links on Twitter and that after while some people just ignore most of the things that I tweet. But I also get a lot of positive feedback about the links that I share on Twitter each day, and then link to again on this blog. To try and help people discover a few new or interesting things each day, I've decided that starting today I am going to select three articles each day that I would highly recommend or consider must-reads as part of my Daily Twitter Links.
Here are today's must-reads:
Queensland District Court Judge Leanne Clare, SC, has made legal history today by ruling in a world first that conception is the act of becoming pregnant, not the act of fertilisation.
For natural conception, there is no difference, but with IVF there can be a significant difference. An embryo can be created from egg and sperm and then be frozen, sometimes for years, before being implanted in the mother to be to enable her to become pregnant.
This list should probably be named ?50 Things You Should Have Eaten If You Live In Brisbane?. As a working title, that one?s certainly more apt. One glance and its glaringly obvious that Brisbane?s culinary offerings have really captured my interest over the last few years.
That said, I?ve spent the last week downloading my memories of prime experiences in this city ? afternoons riverside, favourite milkshakes and burger bars, and galleries you shouldn?t miss?
The point is that all technology has a history and that what we now take to be innovative and revolutionary will one day become ordinary and commonplace. This, of course, borders on cliche. The key, however, is to remember that before any technology became a naturalized and taken-for-granted part of society there were choices to be made. Forgetting that technology has a history is a way of refusing responsibility.
