  2. DIY Atomic Force Microscopy -- use a 3D printer to make the parts so you can build a cheap and simple AFM head suitable for single molecule force spectroscopy. (via Vik Olliver)
  3. Elastic Lists -- open-sourced ActionScript for a clever faceted browsing system. (via Flowing Data)
  4. The Most IMPORTANT Video You'll Ever See (YouTube) -- a math lesson everyone should have. (via Hacker News)
