most overlooked science and technology stories of 2005

i've put up a piece on what i consider the most overlooked - or just fun - science and tech stories of the past year. the first one:

1. mutation that created “white people” 40,000 years ago identified.

the dancers whirled and jumped ever higher, their faces dripping with sweat as the drumbeat intensified. ecstasy seized dancers and musicians alike, only to be interrupted by a sudden wave of shock and surprise. a hush fell across the ancient savannah as the pale stranger emerged from the shadows. straightening his tie, he spoke to the hushed crowd:

“that tune’s gotta lot of pizzazz, fellas, but I can’t find the darned melody anywhere.”

the rest of it's here.
