The Organization System of the new Feedly

I've tried many news feed applications in the past years, but I usually stick with Google Reader for the convenience and consistency, since I use Google everything. But I heard some whispers about the app Feedly, and I saw this Lifehacker post about its recent upgrade, so I decided to check it out and analyze the way it organizes its news articles.

Chemists Outrun Laws in War on Synthetic Drugs

To combat new drugs, such as “Bath Salts”, specific new laws are being passed that contain catalogs of molecular compounds that are now banned in the US. As soon as a new law is passed, chemist are able to change the compounds to be a different on a molecular level, but still have the same psychopharmaceutical role. The assumption is that this new compound will eventually get added to the banned list, however the scope of these derivative compounds are huge, from the hundreds to the thousands depending on the compound.

"Open Source Medical Devices: When code can kill or cure"

I thought this piece from The Economist did a good job of tying two of our readings together from the last lecture. The article explains that as medical devices have grown more capable, they have also grown more complex. With increasing complexity comes an increased potential for something to go wrong. However, the "resources" these devices manage aren't stuffed animals in a natural history museum--they are biometric data where a software bug in a device that accidentally delivers an overdose of chemotherapy can result in the death of a patient.

Wolfram's New Facebook Report

Everyone talks about the possibilities of exploiting the goldmine of personal information that Facebook has collected over the years. Many mobile and web apps dig into the pool of their users' information, but Wolfram Alpha's new Facebook Report function, as briefly explained in CNN Tech's article.
