Evolution has fascinated me for quite a while. In the digital age, what’s even more interesting is the parallel evolution that’s going on within our machinery.

Computers are our creation, and like us, they get sick. There are malevolent growths within them: viruses. As technology progresses, so do the they. This happens in the same way that biological viruses evolve along with the development of new antibiotics; the more complex the antibiotics are, the more resilient the surviving viruses are.

Computer viruses, however, have one fundamental difference: they are created with the malicious intent of humans. These intentions also evolve over time. This evolution is creatively illustrated below. Read on, and don’t forget to back up all your files to a hard drive! (via)

The Perks of Walking [infographic]

Mostly because I was too cheap to take a bus and kept getting lost , I did an insane amount of walking at South by South West today. I trotted across downtown several times in my trusty cowboy boots, which became exhausting after a while. Throughout the day I refueled my body with several slices of pizza, ritz crackers, and beer (not exactly the ideal spring break diet) While this is usually a big no-no for me, I kept reassuring myself that all the walking I was doing would make up for it. But now that I actually think about it,  I really am curious to know if all the walking I did earned me 4 slices of pizza and some beers.

Turns out, all my walking didn’t burn too many calories, but I did burn some fat and strengthen my legs. I also improved my heart health and engaged my core. Not too bad for having fun at the same time.

Even though all my walking today won’t result in drastic positive changes, it is easy to see on today’s infographic that there are only positive results that come from regular walking. It’s great to realize that I was benefiting my body while having a great time at South by South West with great friends and music. [via]

Get Over Acne [infographic]

Who else remembers middle school as the best time of their life? Oh, no one… Middle school was filled with bad decisions and fluctuating hormones. Acne didn’t help. Acne is a health problem effecting thousands of young adults and can be quite a problem.

There are a few solutions to acne whether it be a facial scrub or a more serious solutions involving a dermatologist. I was lucky enough to never have bad acne and a facial scrub a few times a week will keep my face pretty clear. I also wash my pillow cases multiple times a week. I don’t know the science behind it, but this has had some of the best results. [Via]

Should I Send This E-mail? [infographic]

Another work day, another 100+ e-mails to read. Actually, I have my filters set up to lower that number to about 10 e-mails per day. But the point is, you’re tired of getting countless e-mails that are simply distractions from your life goals. Today’s infographic is going to hopefully prevent you from looking like a fool by determining which e-mails are appropriate to send.

I couldn’t agree more with this infographic, especially with regards to e-mails about cats. Not only am I allergic to cats, I really don’t care about cute pictures you found by typing ‘funny cats’ into Google images. If you think you are good at finding really cool internet sites, just add me on StumbleUpon and send them there.

According to the infographic, losing your job over sending e-mails is a common occurrence. Hopefully these bosses at least confronted the spammer and gave them a second chance before cutting them loose… regardless be careful of what you send. My advice is to think about the receiver and whether they will consider the e-mail important; perspective is a powerful tool. [Via]
