BioBricks Foundation: Biotechnology in the public interest

Dear Friends of the BioBricks Foundation,

The BioBricks Foundation (BBF) is a public-benefit organization dedicated to advancing synthetic biology (SynBio) to benefit all people and the planet. We work to create a sustainable future by standardizing biological parts that are safe, ethical, cost effective and publicly accessible. Your enthusiastic involvement in the SynBio community and the work of the BBF makes a crucial difference.

The BBF is a young organization that has produced results. This year, we successfully created the first-in-the-world BioBrick™ Public Agreement (BPA), a legal tool that enables the free exchange and use of standard biological parts. BIOFAB, our first professional research collaboration, has produced reliable, standardized biological parts that constitute a free operating system for biotechnology. In addition, the BBF also manages OpenWetWare (OWW), an open-source wiki that facilitates teaching, learning, and sharing of data for 9,000 researchers through a culture of collaboration and open science. That's not all. Just this past June, the BBF successfully organized SB 5.0, an inspiring 3-day global conference in SynBio with the participation of over 70 international speakers and 730 attendees from over 25 countries.

With 2012 approaching, the BBF plans to do even more to support and connect our SynBio community, promoting the effectiveness of OWW, creating new educational programs, and much more. We need your help to make these goals a reality.

Donate NowTo support this exciting work, the BBF has launched a fundraising campaign to raise $50K by December 31, 2011. Thanks to a generous donor, we've already raised $8K toward our goal. That leaves just $42K to go!

Your gift of $10, $20, $50, $100, or any amount will have a big impact. With your help, the BBF will have resources to conduct such activities as launching OWW2.0, providing scholarships to young researchers for SB 6.0, hosting workshops on exciting themes, and launching initiatives to unite global BIOFABs and create a road map for the field of SynBio. The time to give is now. Make a secure, online donation to the BBF today.

We live in a world with limited natural resources. Striving to build a sustainable world is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. SynBio may hold the key to our future. The BBF fills a unique need in this field, educating, building community, creating legal tools, and fostering cooperation. Please act now by making a personal financial gift to support the BBF.

We'll let you know our progress in meeting our campaign goal. Thank you so much for your support.

Sincerely,

Fwd: [MCM] The People's Library lives on! (Please donate!)

To: <newsfromunderground@googlegroups.com>


Before Bloomberg had the NYPD trash it, I gave the People's Library 16 copies of my Fooled Again—all my remaining hardcovers—and six of my Cruel and Unusual. Whether they survived the Säuberung I don't know.

In any case, it's great news that the Library's still there—and still growing its collection with donated volumes. If you want to give them anything, go to http://peopleslibrary.wordpress.com, and find the CONTRIBUTE tab.

The People's Library of Occupy Wall Street Lives On

November 22, 2011 

The People's Library at Zuccotti Park—a collection of more than 5,000 donated books of every genre and subject, all free for the taking—was created not only to serve the Occupy Wall Street protesters; it was meant to provide knowledge and reading pleasure for the wider public as well, including residents of Lower Manhattan. It was also a library to the world at large, since many visitors to the park stopped by the library to browse our collection, to donate books of their own and to take books for themselves.

At about 2:30 am on November 15, the People's Library was destroyed by the NYPD, acting on the authority of Mayor Michael Bloomberg. With no advance notice, an army of police in riot gear raided the park, seized everything in it and threw it all into garbage trucks and dumpsters. Despite Mayor Bloomberg's Twitter promise that the library was safely stored and could be retrieved, only about 1,100 books were recovered, and some of those are in unreadable condition. Four library laptops were also destroyed, as well as all the bookshelves, storage bins, stamps and cataloging supplies and the large tent that housed the library.

For the past six weeks I have been living and working as a librarian in the People's Library, camping out on the ground next to it. I'm an English professor at the University of Pittsburgh, and I've chosen to spend my sabbatical at Occupy Wall Street to participate in the movement and to build and maintain the collection of books at the People's Library. I love books—reading them, writing in them, arranging them, holding them, even smelling them. I also love having access to books for free. I love libraries and everything they represent. To see an entire collection of donated books, including many titles I would have liked to read, thoughtlessly ransacked and destroyed by the forces of law and order was one of the most disturbing experiences of my life. My students in Pittsburgh struggle to afford to buy the books they need for their courses. Our extensive collection of scholarly books and journals alone would have sufficed to provide reading materials for dozens of college classrooms. With public libraries around the country fighting to survive in the face of budget cuts, layoffs and closings, the People's Library has served as a model of what a public library can be: operated for the people and by the people.

During the raid, Stephen Boyer, a poet, friend and OWS librarian, read poems from the Occupy Wall Street Poetry Anthology (see peopleslibrary.wordpress.com) aloud directly into the faces of riot police. As they pushed us away from the park with shields, fists, billy clubs and tear gas, I stood next to Stephen and watched while he yelled poetry at the top of his lungs into the oncoming army of riot police. Then, something incredible happened. Several of the police leaned in closer to hear the poetry. They lifted their helmet shields slightly to catch the words Stephen was shouting out to them, even while their fellow cops continued to stampede us. The next day, an officer who was guarding the entrance to Zuccotti Park told Stephen how touched he was by the poetry, how moved he was to see that we cared enough about words and books that we would risk violent treatment and arrest just to defend our love of books and the wisdom they contain.

At 6 pm on November 15, a group of writers and supporters of the People's Library appeared at the reopened park carrying books, and within minutes we received around 200 donations. All night and into the next day folks stopped by to donate to and take from the collection. Because the new rules of the park forbid us from lying down or leaving anything there, Stephen and I stayed up all night to protect the books until other librarians came to take over for us. Frustrated and exhausted, but still exhilarated and eager to maintain the momentum of the movement, we kept the People's Library open all day in the pouring rain, storing books in Ziploc baggies to keep them dry.

Then at 7:30 pm on November 16, the People's Library was again raided and thrown in the trash—this time by a combination of police and Brookfield Properties' sanitation team. The NYPD first barricaded the library by lining up in front of it, forming an impenetrable wall of cops. An officer then announced through a bullhorn that we should come and collect our books, or they would be confiscated and removed. Seconds later, they began dumping books into trash bins that they had wheeled into the park for that purpose. As they were throwing out the books, a fellow OWS librarian asked one of the NYPD patrolmen why they were doing this. His answer: "I don't know."

Five minutes after it started, the raid was over and the People's Library's collection was once again sitting in a pile of garbage. Yet just as the trash bins were being carted off, a man stepped out of the crowd with a book in his hand to donate to us: Joan Didion's Slouching Towards Bethlehem. We joyously accepted and cataloged it, placing it on display under a new sign for the library that we made right then on a blank sheet of paper. A true people's library, after all, doesn't depend on any particular number of books, since it's ultimately about the way those books are collected and lent out to the public.

We're still accepting donations and lending books just as we always have, but we've reorganized ourselves somewhat. We now have three mobile units staffed by OWS librarians, which we can take anywhere we want. For the November 17 Day of Action, we made sure the People's Library was there to supply books to anyone who wanted them. All day long, OWS librarians walked among the crowds shouting, "The People's Library 3.0, mobile and in the streets!" For me, it was easily the most rewarding day in the six weeks I've been with the movement. The people we met at our mobile units—Occupiers from New York and other states, friends of the People's Library, tourists—went out of their way to express their joy that we were still here. They also struggled to articulate their feelings of loss, frustration, anger, disgust and outrage over the seizure and destruction of the library. All we could say in response was, "We're here to stay! Please take a book! They belong to you!" A group of eight OWS librarians even started a new chant: "Whose books? Your books!" It quickly caught fire with the other marchers.

Libraries are where we learn about things that are new to us. Their books broaden our perspectives, change the way we see the world and, at the most basic level, provide us with free and open access to knowledge and information. Over the two months that the People's Library has been in operation at Zuccotti Park, we librarians have come to see how vital this mission is to the enrichment of our broader society. What's more, in the course of our day-to-day work there, we had—and are still having—the best time of our lives. The library provides a space of dialogue, creativity, intellectual and cultural exchange and personal growth. When freshmen and sophomores in college ask me, "What should I be reading to understand what this movement is all about?" I see it as an opening for a great conversation. And when they come back to the library to return the books they took, I love to hear about the new horizons that the books helped to open for them.

Although we often shout, "This is what democracy looks like!" on our marches, it's also something we can say every day to those who pay a visit to the OWS library. In fact, it's something that the People's Library, by its very presence—in any location, in any form, with any number of books—is perfectly capable of saying for itself.

Senators Demand the Military Lock Up American Citizens in a "Battlefield" They Define as Being Right Outside Your Window

While nearly all Americans head to family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.

Senators need to hear from you, on whether you think your front yard is part of a "battlefield" and if any president can send the military anywhere in the world to imprison civilians without charge or trial.

The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. Even Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) raised his concerns about the NDAA detention provisions during last night's Republican debate. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.

The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday.The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.

I know it sounds incredible. New powers to use the military worldwide, even within the United States? Hasn't anyone told the Senate that Osama bin Laden is dead, that the president is pulling all of the combat troops out of Iraq and trying to figure out how to get combat troops out of Afghanistan too? And American citizens and people picked up on American or Canadian or British streets being sent to military prisons indefinitely without even being charged with a crime. Really? Does anyone think this is a good idea? And why now?

The answer on why now is nothing more than election season politics. The White House, the Secretary of Defense, and the Attorney General have all said that the indefinite detention provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act are harmful and counterproductive. The White House has even threatened a veto. But Senate politics has propelled this bad legislation to the Senate floor.

But there is a way to stop this dangerous legislation. Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) is offering the Udall Amendment that will delete the harmful provisions and replace them with a requirement for an orderly Congressional review of detention power. The Udall Amendment will make sure that the bill matches up with American values.

In support of this harmful bill, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) explained that the bill will "basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield" and people can be imprisoned without charge or trial "American citizen or not." Another supporter, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) also declared that the bill is needed because "America is part of the battlefield."

The solution is the Udall Amendment; a way for the Senate to say no to indefinite detention without charge or trial anywhere in the world where any president decides to use the military. Instead of simply going along with a bill that was drafted in secret and is being jammed through the Senate, the Udall Amendment deletes the provisions and sets up an orderly review of detention power. It tries to take the politics out and put American values back in.

In response to proponents of the indefinite detention legislation who contend that the bill "applies to American citizens and designates the world as the battlefield," and that the "heart of the issue is whether or not the United States is part of the battlefield," Sen. Udall disagrees, and says that we can win this fight without worldwide war and worldwide indefinite detention.

The senators pushing the indefinite detention proposal have made their goals very clear that they want an okay for a worldwide military battlefield, that even extends to your hometown. That is an extreme position that will forever change our country.

Now is the time to stop this bad idea. Please urge your senators to vote YES on the Udall Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act.

Dear Wavers,

More than a year ago, we announced that Google Wave would no longer be developed as a separate product. At the time, we committed to maintaining the site at least through to the end of 2010. Today, we are sharing the specific dates for ending this maintenance period and shutting down Wave. As of January 31, 2012, all waves will be read-only, and the Wave service will be turned off on April 30, 2012. You will be able to continue exporting individual waves using the existing PDF export feature until the Google Wave service is turned off. We encourage you to export any important data before April 30, 2012.

If you would like to continue using Wave, there are a number of open source projects, including Apache Wave. There is also an open source project called Walkaround that includes an experimental feature that lets you import all your Waves from Google. This feature will also work until the Wave service is turned off on April 30, 2012.

For more details, please see our help center.

Yours sincerely,

The Wave Team

Fwd: Polygonica to support AMF format.

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: "Nigel Starling" <Nigel.Starling@machineworks.com>
Date: Nov 24, 2011 8:21 AM
Subject: Polygonica to support AMF format.
To: <stl2@googlegroups.com>

Professor Lipson invited me to the group to announce our latest software release, so apologies for the advert.

Polygonica, the Polygon SolidModeling toolkit from MachineWorks,
is a software toolkit for carrying out a wide range of geometric operations on 3-d models such as automatic solid healing, fixing self-intersections, slicing and other Boolean operations. See http://www.machineworks.com/polygonica.htm and http://www.machineworks.com/news-2011-11-03.htm
 
To support customers in Additive Manufacturing we have extended the existing input and output file formats to include AMF.
 
As a developer I was impressed with the clarity of the specification and we were able to quickly develop the XML parser and encoder for the 3-d geometry.
Coming late to this group a couple of features of the specification seemed curious. Maybe someone can assist with a brief history lesson ?
 
1.  Compressed format.
 
A compressed data file may take less file-space but takes longer to parse. Why was this option chosen rather than a binary format ?
Is there a reliable way to spot a zipped file when opened ?
 
2.  Restrictions on geometry. 
 
The specification suggests that objects not of type "support" must comply with all the restrictions on geometry.
Should it fail to parse, or just warn users ? Must any AMF parser contain the functionality to validate the geometry ?
Polygonica provides all the functionality to validate the geometry and automatically repair any problems found.
