The New Magic of Bar Code Scanning


The Smithsonian Project to Do for Species Identification what the Genome project

did for unlocking the Human DNA.

The Project is called the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) and it uses a Bar Code reader

to tag the information gathered  about Animal Life.

"Imagine an electronic page for each species of organism on Earth..."

- Edward O. Wilson

Out, From Under the Dome 

(Audible Book)

Just finished Stephen King's Book and was pleasantly surprised by the Audible Reader 

Raul Esparza, and the scores of characters Mr. King peppered his lastest book with.

 A Very Good Read.


Now I'm into the Novel that was the inspiration for ABC 7's 

Flash Forward by Robert J. Sawyer.
