Inventor of Implantable Pacemaker
Dies at 92
By BARNABY FEDER
Published: September 28, 2011 on The New York Times
Wilson Greatbatch, a professed “humble tinkerer” who, working in his barn in 1958,
designed the first practical implantable pacemaker, a device that has preserved millions of lives,
died on Tuesday at his home in Williamsville, N.Y. He was 92.
His death was confirmed by his daughter, Anne Maciariello.
Mr. Greatbatch patented more than 325 inventions,
notably a long-life lithium battery used in a wide range of medical implants.
He created tools used in AIDS research and a solar-powered canoe,
which he took on a 160-mile voyage on the Finger Lakes in New York to celebrate his 72nd birthday.
In later years, he invested time

Is this a Deviation?I was in Greece visiting my family recently... and after everyone went to sleep, I couldn't. I knew there was a beauty outside that I rarely have a chance to see. And a deep, primal hunger drove my need to be outside to breathe in.Is this a Deviation?3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It was pitch dark. I couldn't see anything but the stars and maybe the driveway lights. But my camera can see so much more.
That's the milky way coming just about almost out of that chimney of the little house where I was staying.
Is this a deviation?
Spring Feature of GrimGloomTale The long winter is finally over, so we can proceed to our next seasonal feature: time for the lovely Spring. I've seen many fabulous works submitted to the group, as always, and they all deserve to be seen. Unfortunately, I can't show them all in this one little showcase. Here you will see only works having below 100 favourites. Give them attention that they lack!Spring Feature of GrimGloomTale 2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

With great access comes the great responsibility of discernment.
→ This article was inspired by the conversation in the comments generated from last week’s Suggestivism article.
As we traverse the final phases of maximum raw information accumulation, potentially equipping us for jacking in to the promise of the Singularity, the contents of many lifetimes’ worth of knowledge, art, education, and history are now at our fingertips. More and more Universities, libraries and arts institutions have swung open their digital doors and granted access to their lectures, courses and curricula free of charge to anyone in the world with a connection to the web. Access to education is fundamentally shifting our society towards an unmappable

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

Logo and Symbol Process TruismsIf you follow me and my work, you are likely well aware that I enjoy logo and symbol design. I don't consider myself the lord of logo design, as there are far more designers out there whom I idolize and have the process nailed down to a science, but quite frankly I think I've become pretty good at it over the years. So with a bit of time and experience under my belt, I wanted to share some truisms I've learned that I find in every one of my design projects.Logo and Symbol Process Truisms4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Almost without fail, the first idea you fall in love with will be one of your worst ideas. When you find you've fallen in love with a concept, let other people see it, and then take a break. Come back to the work a few days later and see what new directions you can head in.
Don't fall in love with your ideas. I say it but it's inevitable. You actually will always fall in love with an idea. But hey, TRY not to.
Simple symbols designed in 1 color work best. If you're designing in color when you start, you're making end-of-the-project

Daily Deviations DescriptionsGreetings!Daily Deviations Descriptions4 years ago in Personal More Like This
My name is Danielle or Moonbeam13, and I'm the Director of Community Relations here at deviantART. During the course of my day part of what I do involves shaking things up and testing new ideas to keep things fresh in the community. Most of these ideas stem from community feedback - things the community has related back to my team of volunteers or to me directly.
Such is the case with Daily Deviation descriptions. First, let's clarify what was tested and what the end result is because there is some confusion.
Originally, I had requested that the volunteers not reuse descriptions sent to them by suggesters. I know it seems nutty but there was a period of time where I was receiving an unrelenting amount of complaints about us just 'pasting what the suggester said' and so I decided that for a short period I'd let the community see what it looks like when we don't do that. As suspected the amount of complaints about 'no descriptions' was alm

SPANK ME! For CharityThis was inspired from a few things. After the birthday I was playing around with my avatar and thought I might create a game involving it but then I thought of Topicality's recent endeavor and decided to turn it into something for charity instead.SPANK ME! For Charity4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The charity I have selected is LUMOS, which was co-founded by JK Rowling.
My goal is $1,000 USD
This will last until the goal is met or September 16, 2011.
For each person that changes his or her to one similar to mine, I will increase my donation amount by 10¢. For your avatar to count you must COMMENT THIS JOURNAL. I will reply to you with "Spanked!" and you are free to change you avatar back.

The Adventures of Squicken... Week OneMy name is Cameron Michael but all my friends call me "Squicken". It's a mixture of "Squid" (what Mommy calls my Dad) and "Chicken" (what Daddy calls my Mommy). I was born last Tuesday the 18th, and have learned SO MUCH that I asked Dad if I could write about it here in his journal.The Adventures of Squicken... Week One3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Dad gave me permission so here goes my first attempt at writing. Don't judge me too harshly because I'm only a week old and I've got my hands full trying to learn stuff. For instance, eyes!!! Wow, eyes are tough to control! It's hard to focus them and move them all around. I can't really see all that well yet but I think I recognize Mom and Dad and I CERTAINLY recognize a fine nipple, which makes Dad proud. Of course, I don't have much experience with other nipples but, I have time to fix that.
I spent a few days in ICU (Mom, Dad, and I called it "jail") at the hospital because Mom ran a fever during birth and the docs said they found some indication of infection in the blood samples they took from me

deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.comIt recently came to our attention that a website called Art4Love.com was offering prints for sale, some based off of deviations also found on deviantART.com (and perhaps other works by artists not on deviantART). Art4Love.com is currently offline, but was up long enough to make some artists very understandably upset, as neither the artists (we are told) nor deviantART ever gave permission for Art4Love.com to sell these prints.deviantART's response regarding Art4Love.com4 years ago in Personal More Like This
We've been tracking the exchanges of comments and journals about all possible infringing activity and are ready to provide information from our side that would help legal action that any of the affected artists decide to bring. We will also fully cooperate with any government agency that may become involved because of consumer complaints against this apparently infringing website and the people running it. We would also happily cooperate with any possible fraud investigations.

The Committed Canvas:icontechgnotic:The Committed Canvas4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tattooing has existed since the very beginnings of Neolithic human expression and has since those ancient beginnings continued to be a reliable flash indicator of personality type. There are those people who get tattoos and there those people who simply do not. Even though the social opprobrium for getting inked has greatly disappeared in recent years, and even though skin art has become almost boringly de rigueur amongst rock guitarists and other entertainers, there is still one element that separates the tattooed from the non-tattooed in terms of artistic appreciation: commitment.
Tattoos may be the first “interactive” art form. The art lover doesn’t just buy an artist’s artwork – he or she becomes one with artwork, he or she commits to becoming a living canvas for the artwork, he or she, by choosing the tattoo to be borne forever, shares authorship with the tattoo artist of the artwork.

Today, more than half of all mobile phones in use are camera phones. With the constant evolution of small digital camera sensors, they have become very cheap while at the same time being convenient and portable. However, there are limits. They are not better than a good camera yet, though many of them can do the job pretty well. A few years ago, the best you could get with an ordinary camera phone was photos in VGA resolution, but at present phones are coming with more and more Megapixels and quality with average prices, making them a great alternative to cameras in some situations.
Mobile phones are constantly carried by almost everybody nowadays. This allows camera phones for capturing moments at any time, moments in which one wouldnt be expecting something to happen and wouldnt normally be carrying a camera. Unexpected things like crimes happening in progress, celebrities passing by or even natural ev
