It’s a Linky-Dinky Day June 24, 2008Posted by nukemhill in Apple/AAPL, Environment, General Interest, Investing, Politics (Ghahh!), WoT.
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.
