Robotic exoskeletons are a staple of sci-fi, pointing to a future where technology can overcome serious injury and bestow superhuman powers on people.

According to a story published this week in the Los Angeles Times, Facebook can see if user’s type on the site even if they don’t post it.
Facebook told the Times that the only reason for this research was to look into self-censorship, something they considered if users typed something but didn’t publish it for ten minutes.

Great tips for how to integrate use of GoogleDocs into research activites to help support ethical use of information.
What a big help in saving time and achieving accuracy.
