I figure that makes about as much sense as the über-hep-cat-yo-dog-g-money ECMmer “Manic Music Monday” type of spiffy-artsy, My incredible cultural relevance can beat up your honor student blogpost.
So…let’s get our yadnom on.
Some of the things round ’bout the ‘net that have piqued my interest, and should pique yours…
- The People’s Democratic Republic of Redmond sees and end to the Windows era, and is even planning on it. Da, komrade.
- In the Road Warrior category, Delta (an airline which already has my vote just because they’re not United) is set to add WiFi to domestic flights in 2009.
- Surfer dude Garrett Lisi has come up with a fresh, new Unified Theory of Everything which unifies the Standard Model with gravity, sidestepping String Theory entirely. Given that I’m not sold on ST, I really like Garrett’s theory – even though to be honest, I don’t understand it. Ironic, given his title for it.
- John Piper lists six reasons pastors should blog.
- Turns out, not only is information not destroyed by black holes, but it doesn’t stay trapped in them forever, either, and eventually “leaks” back out. This has profound implications RE: Einsteinian relativity.
- Talking about black holes, the lower end of the mass limit for a black hole has been observationally verified.
- And this should come as no surprise at all to anybody who either ever misunderstood, or was misunderstood…turns out that believing is seeing, and not the other way around.
- Atomic radiation may not be as deadly as previously thought.
- The wonderful, weird properties of glass.
- Want a mind-reading hat that can predict a brain fart?
- And on the subject of brains, turns out that coffee protects ’em.
- Us stupid humans are shortening the life of the universe.
- Hypothetically youngest planet observed.
- The secret to raising smart kids.
- I disagree with the author’s contention that Star Trek ever “jumped the shark,” but an amusing read anyway…
- Chalcedon contrasts the atomistic, domestic, and trustee families.
- Delivered in 1998, but still relevant, Dr. Danny Faulkner critiques the current state of Creation astronomy.
And there you have it. To both of my readers: enjoy.
