It’s a Linky-Dinky Day June 24, 2008

Yet another (in no particular order) collection of links, read and unread:

  • Drill Here, Drill Now, Drill Less.  American Solutions website (and petition) to ask Congress to lift the moratorium on off-shore drilling.  Sign it!
  • Interesting white-paper by Intel on the new Quad-Core Xeon processor.  Not overly technical.  A decent read.
  • Smart Energy Views, a blog on energy, how we use it, alternative sources, etc.  A somewhat related site:  Americans for Prosperity.  Calling BS on AGW.  Also, Lithium-Ion battery research.  Finally, Cringely on SwiftFuel, a potential replacement for ethanol.
  • Juan Williams:  It’s time for a new Obama race speech.  Maybe one that a little more honest and “nuanced”?
  • Web Objects Community.
  • Heinlein quotes.  Amazing stuff.  Time to start re-reading him.
  • Roughly Drafted article on Snow Leopard.  Sounds fascinating.  If any company could say “Stop, we’re going to take a year+ off and clean up our code.  Oh, and we’re going to give you some under-the-hood enhancements that will blow you away!”, it’s Apple.
  • Excel Spreadsheet analysis tools for options.
  • Peter Robinson’s “Uncommon Knowledge“.  Just watched most of his interview (parts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5) with Douglas Feith regarding “War and Decision“.  I think Robinson was initially perhaps a little too sycophantic towards Feith (although Feith certainly deserves praise for what appears to be an extremely honest and well-documented book).  However, Robinson comes down hard on Bush more than once, which was a surprise to me.  I think that’s a good thing.  Feith is taking questions at NRO.
  •  Don Surber on McCain’s recent energy announcements.  If McCain gets ahead of the curve on this, he wins in November.
  • Bostom’s lecture:  “Jihad and Islamic Antisemitism“.
  • Earmarks by state. Maryland is middle-of-the-road.
