Want to buy Jaws' jaws? A NZ fisherman who expressed "remorse" last week after catching a 7-metre pregnant great white shark is trying to sell the shark's jawbone - but only if the price is right.

Filter 2.0 I think that MoFi gives us a great opportunity to not just replicate Mefi, but to improve on it. How would you make the concept of the Filter better - radically, not just incrementally better? How can we recombine the concept with other technologies, mutate it, or maybe even strip something away to radically improve it? Or maybe, simply, you do want MoFi to be the same old Filter. Either way, let's discuss it here.
"Hit Song Science," an application that can analyze a song and determine it's "hitability." The company's website is worth poking around in as well. Does this scare anyone else?
