"In Cybernetic Revolutionaries, Eden Medina tells the history of two intersecting utopian visions, one political and one technological. The first was Chile’s experiment with peaceful socialist change under Salvador Allende; the second was the simultaneous attempt to build a computer system that would manage Chile’s economy. Neither vision was fully realized–Allende’s government ended with a violent military coup; the system, known as Project Cybersyn, was never completely implemented–but they hold lessons for today about the relationship between technology and politics.

Forget the Loch Ness Monster. There's a new mysterious underwater creature that's getting tongues wagging. But unlike Scotland's mirage-like legend, this large gelatinous appendage that some experts are calling a Deepstaria Enigmatica has been captured on video.
The U.K.'s Daily Mail has images of the "whale-like blob" that were captured by a deep-sea remote-controlled underwater camera. Though the milky mass looks like nothing that has ever been seen before, wild theories abound. Everything from the remains of a whale's placenta to a special type of jellyfish have been suggested, although the article notes that the object's appendages and organs would make it unique among its slippery brethren. One theory that experts have suggested is that it may be a Stygiomedusa Gigantea, a fish of the jelly variety that has only been spotted 114 times in almost as many years. The rarely-studied (and thus perfectly named) Deepstaria Enigmatica jellyfish has also been proposed, although the mass' host of irregularities —like its unusual organ placement — has also thrown that guess into murky waters. Keep watching this story throughout the day as we wait for any updates.
Forensic science used to determine who's who in pre-Columbian Peru 23 Apr 2012
Analysis of ancient mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) has been used to establish migration and population patterns for American indigenous cultures during the time before Christopher Columbus sailed to the Americas. New research published in BioMed Central's open access journal BMC Genetics has used more detailed DNA analysis of individuals from Arequipa region to identify the family relationships and burial traditions of ancient Peru.
The social unit (ayllu) of Native South Americans is thought to be based on kin relationships. The establishment of ayllu-based communities is also associated with funereal monuments (chullpas) which are thought to be important social sites not only because of their religious importance but because they housed the venerated ayllu's ancestors. Ancestor worship and a belief in a common ancestor, central to the ayllu, still exists in the traditions of the Q'ero community.
