Mars One will establish the first human settlement on Mars in 2023. A habitable settlement will be waiting for the settlers when they land. The settlement will support them while they live and work on Mars the rest of their lives. Every two years after 2023 an additional crew will arrive, such that there is a real living, growing community on Mars. Mars One has created a technical plan for this mission that is as simple as possible. For every component of the mission we have identified at least one potential supplier. Mars One invites you to join us in this next giant leap for mankind!
See those little pods? You could live in one of those for the rest of your life!
This is terrifying.

Friends of INTJs are often confused, worried, or hurt when their INTJ unexpectedly disappears and stops speaking to everyone. It could be for a few hours, it could be for several days. Fear not, though; the INTJ’s occasional reclusive tendencies have nothing to do with their companions. They have a strong need for solitude, even as compared to other Introverted types. Without alone time, INTJs become exhausted, irritable, and are unable to function at their best. Let them have their isolation. They’ll be grateful for it and come back to you soon.

And the Joystiq story with more of the juicy details.
The touring concert features live orchestral performances of music from Nintendo’s “Legend of Zelda” series, which make up one of the best-selling and highest-rated video game franchises of all time.
The four-movement symphony includes orchestral renditions of music hearkening back to classic scenes from “Zelda” games including “Ocarina of Time,” “A Link to the Past,” “The Wind Waker,” “Twilight Princess” and the series’ most recent addition, “Skyward Sword,” which debuted on Nintendo’s Wii console in November 2011.
Extra dates around the country have been announced, but none for NY yet:
Additional dates and locations will be announced throughout 2012. Fans can view a complete tour schedule, find ticketing information and sign up for a regularly updated digital newsletter at http://zelda-symphony.com.
I would probably watch basketball if the commentary was always like this. English people make everything better.
Update: Missed this the first time around, but worth noting. Last year Schilling told Reuters that he had invested “$30 million to $35 million” in 38 Studios. A disclosure filing obtained by WPRI shows that Schilling advanced the company $4 million of his own money, and has already been paid back—with funds from the Rhode Island loan.
Interesting, despicable, but potentially disingenuous. The “word on the street” has always been that Schilling dumped a considerable chunk of his fortune into 38 when he founded the company back in 2006, which may well have been $35 million (which incidentally is when they started work on the MMO “Copernicus”).
The $4 million figure reported above is related to the Rhode Island move in 2010, which was four years after Schilling set up the company.
More interesting reporting from Joystiq:
38 Studios was unable to make payroll this week, but is in the process of making the $1.125 million payment that set off the company’s crisis earlier this week. WPRI reports that a spokesperson for the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation (RIEDC) did confirm that former Red Sox player Curt Schilling’s video game company was unable to pay its employees.
A source tells Joystiq that beyond not making payroll, all temps and contractors at 38 Studios were let go this week.
At the same time, Governor Lincoln Chafee’s office stated 38 Studios is in the process of making the overdue payment to the state. The head of the RIEDC, Keith Stokes, who approved the $75 million loan to 38 Studios in 2010, resigned late last night.
If 38 Studios does shutter, beyond Rhode Island taxpayers having to pay off the $75 million bond (plus interest) through 2020, it appears the state will also own the intellectual property of the developer as a parting gift.
This covers “all rights, title and interest in any projects, including video game projects,” such as Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning and “Project Copernicus" – the title currently in development at 38 Studios.
