There are less than 400 Sumatran Tigers in existence. Unfortunately most of the world is unaware of this frightening fact. Without action, the species will completely disappear. To spread the message of the Tiger’s vulnerability, we’ve created a song that will also go extinct unless it’s reproduced. These custom lathe-cut records are made from polycarbonate plastic, which means it will degrade after a certain amount of plays, causing the song to eventually disappear and go extinct. The Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute, in collaboration with  us, have made only 400 records of this unreleased song. There are no other copies in existence. Tigers are dwindling every year. Social influence and conservation action could actually help save a species.

This is brilliant.

When Drudge Is A Genius

Is when you’re still up at 2 in the morning, alone in an empty apartment on a mattress, half-empty coke zero bottles scattered around the room, and sneakers inches away from your face that are beginning to smell like Chinese food, and you click on Drudge and you get that photo lay-out he has right now.

Sully

Andrew Sullivan gets at least half credit for this. That sentence is sublime.

Coolest thing you’ll see today: A guy managed to play a reel-to-reel tape through his iPod Touch using a slightly-modified Square credit card reader, which seems obvious if you think about it, but not so much at first. Clever work, bro. (via Hacker News)
