Evolution of Charles Darwin. I've implemented my own version of the Genetic Algorithm described by Roger Alsing in his blog ( http://rogeralsing.com/2008/12/07/genetic-programming-evolution-of-mona-lisa ). This algorithm finds the best set of colored triangles that could be used to re-create an original image.
On the left : the original image (via wikipdia), on the right the current image generated by the genetic algorithm at generation 240 (population:20 individuals of 50 triangles). My algorithm is currently running .

I've also uploaded an executable jar here: http://code.google.com/p/lindenb/downloads/list
I've uploaded a beta version of a spreadsheet-like program that I wrote for the people of my lab.
This screenshot is a java JTable displaying the hapmap genotypes for chr1/build36/CEU. The size of the original file is 146Mo
The tool is available as a java webstart application. See http://code.google.com/p/cephlib/wiki/Workbench.
I've done a presentation on how to use a wiki in a lab. Used both OWW and wikipedia. I showed them how to edit/follow/track a page ( http://tinyurl.com/6ejw35), how to create/discuss a page with templates and categories ( http://tinyurl.com/5l5bw5 ), how files can be uploaded in a wiki and commented ( http://tinyurl.com/5ouc7y ). A demo of the wikipedia API ( http://tinyurl.com/2dp5r4 ).
People were then interested in storing+annotating (linkage) files in a wiki.
Thank you to all the crowd in FriendFeed. Really motivating.
