People who take selfies are vain, narcissistic and self-absorbed. Why post self portraits taken in a dirty bathroom mirror on social media every. Single. Day? Is it for attention? Validation? Are you hooked on how many "likes" you get? Get over yourself.

Before I decided to take a selfie every day for a year, I didn't take selfies at all. Because I didn't want people to judge me like I was judging others.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

We now live in a world where a slash through the air can create a cornucopia of sound and light. One movement provides an oratory and visual feast that is free from the spacial confines presented by traditional instruments. What you're about to witness is the future of electronic music. And it all started with a video game controller.

Five brilliant STEM professionals make up Girl Geek Academy, enabling and supporting coding and hackathons, 3D printing and wearables, game development, design, entrepreneurship and startups - all with the aim to get more women in tech, women in games, women who make, female designers and female founders.

Girl Geek Academy has been kicking big goals - and career education giant General Assembly noticed. In a new collaboration, they are launching a $15,000 Web Development Immersive Scholarship to kickstart one woman's career as a developer.

Seeing it for the first time, did the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer leave you with a feeling of suspense, joy, sadness, euphoria?

Or did you just want to eat the Porg?

"That meme is dead, Mum."

It was the moment I realised I really was profoundly uncool, expertly owned by my 16 year old son. I was using a meme that was tired, apparently. Overused. About to become the territory of that Aunt who posts Minions memes on Facebook. It was dead.

But how long do memes live for anyway, and which ones endure the test of time?

While there were 1.4 million tablets sold in Australia over the last year, as a whole, sales are on the decline (by roughly 10 per cent). Android has seen the biggest hit - with a 29 per cent drop in the first half of 2016 alone.

And while absolutely thrashed on the smartphone stakes, analysts are predicting it'll be Windows overtaking Android by the end of the year.

Since Pokemon Go's launch in July last year, the Augmented Reality phenomenon has been downloaded over 750 million times and made more than $1.5 billion. That's not a typo. While more than 80 per cent of players (myself included) haven't opened the app in months, 60 million people are still playing today.

That's a lot of people getting out and about, increasing their physical activity, getting fitter. But does the gamification of exercise actually work? Short answer: yeah, it does.

Remember the Xbox Onesie? Love it or hate it, there's no denying it was a stroke of marketing genius. So, like all successful original ideas - there's a sequel. And this time, it has been created in collaboration with Porsche.

I'm not even kidding. Society has devolved to the point where that statement, about a onesie and one of the most well-known luxury Motorsport brands of all time, is an actual fact.

Terreform ONE, a not-for-profit architecture research group, creates projects that provide environmentally friendly and smart design options for future cities.

One of them is a Cricket Shelter -- a modular edible insect farm where crickets are milled into flour after death. But don't worry, they get to have a lot of sex first!

"I'm going to get some Chicken McNuggets® if anyone wants to come get some.

Will probably get some sweet 'n sour sauce to go along with it idk."

This is a story about a Facebook event - possibly the greatest since my neighbour organised a casual Pokemon Go walk and thousands of people showed up. It's a Facebook event for nuggets, folks.

When you were a kid, what did you think the future would look like? Hoverboards, Back to the Future style? Flying Cars a la The Jetsons?

It's 2017 people, and look what we have here - an augmented reality Ikea experience. So that everywhere is your life can be filled with Ikea, like a disillusioned insurance worker's apartment shortly before starting an underground Fight Club.

Star Trek: Discovery is the sixth and newest TV series in the long-running cultural phenomenon that is Trek, and it brings the show's long-time protagonists -- those pesky Klingons -- back to the fore. If you want to get into the swing of things properly and understand what Discovery might be like if you were watching on the Klingon homeworld of Klinzhai, Netflix has enabled a little Easter Egg for its Aussie audience: subtitles for the entire series in Klingon.

It's the first day of the school holidays, and from 5:20am this morning until just a few moments ago all flights leaving Sydney Airport - Australia's largest - were grounded. Some flights have started up again, but Airport officials have warned passengers should expect lengthy delays.

The cause of all this ruckus? Ground traffic control was hit with a power outage.

While not to be considered a replacement for medication or professional therapy, a new study shows smartphone apps can be an effective treatment option for depression.

With depression currently the most prevalent mental disorder in the world, mental health services are struggling to meet the demand for treatment - and the researchers believe apps can help.

It's happening - finally. In the midst of the 68th International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide, the Federal Government has announced plans to establish an Australian space agency - with Acting science minister Michaelia Cash calling the move "crucial".

Back in July the Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science announced a review of the country's space industry capability, led by an Expert Review Group and chaired by former CSIRO chief executive Dr Megan Clark.
