We were a little sad to see Chris Hadfield leave the ISS earlier this month, but we’re glad he’s back safely, and that he’s still tweeting about every step of the readjustment process.

While Hadfield was making his return trip home, he was unable to keep the world updated on his every move, so his son Evan took the reins on his own Twitter account. When Commander Hadfield was back safe and sound on Earth he didn’t wait long to start tweeting again:

Safely home — back on Earth, happily readapting to the heavy pull of gravity. Wonderful to smell and feel Spring.

Sociologist, philosopher, computer industry pioneer and inventor of the term ?hypertext? Ted Nelson is claiming that he knows the identity of Bitcoin inventor ?Satoshi Nakamoto?.

In a rambling ? and, let’s face it, odd ? 12-minute post on YouTube, Nelson spins out the suspense, throws in a dialogue with himself as Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, and finally ends with the statement that the mystery developer of the cryptocurrency is Japanese mathematician Shinichi Mochizuki, research professor of mathematics at Kyoto University.

Bitcoin is not going away, the digital currency’s developers say, and they’re craving more technically savvy people to support its use.

“Our bottleneck is not new code, it’s code review and testing,” said Gavin Andresen , chief scientist at the Bitcoin Foundation, which provides most of the core backend development for the currency.

We Steal Secrets: the rise and fall of WikiLeaks in classic Hollywood terms

All movies have heroes and villains and Alex Gibney’s documentary, We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, felt like vintage silver screen. Two-thirds of the way through, the film established clear roles. Our protagonist is Julian Assange, WikiLeaks founder and underdog hacker hero. His evil nemesis is actually information-silencing bureaucracy but the US government largely plays this role (voiced often by Michael Hayden, former director of both the NSA and CIA). It’s a classic conflict: a battle waged over censorship and the public’s right to know.
