Random Links on a Tuesday Afternoon July 22, 2008Posted by nukemhill in Apple/AAPL, Economics, Environment, Judaism/Israel, Writing.
Something to while away the time:
- A CLang review at Rogue Amoeba. Something to get into more as I teach myself Objective-C and Cocoa.
- 15 online tools. Something for every tech-head.
- Myth of Consensus Explodes. Oops. Maybe there really is a difference of opinion about AGW? Here’s the original article at APS. Heh. They’re using Cold Fusion to drive their site. No wonder the damn thing was overloaded a few days ago.
- Dan Simmons continues to just blow me away with the depth, breadth, and focus of his knowledge about everything. Here’s his latest newletter on his website. It’s about the Olympics, Germany, Nazis, Jews, Munich, etc. Breath-taking. It’s a long read, so settle in for a while. It’s also not a permanent link. I couldn’t track that down. It should be up through September, though.
- Some links about oil, our dependency on such, and what we can do about it:
- The Interior Department opens up 2.6 million acres in Alaska for exploration. About damn time.
- And yes, it will matter. Because Obama’s promises hold no guarantees.
- American Solutions: why “drill here, drill now” will reduce our costs at the pump.
- Energy Information Administration. Way too much information to process all at once. May be a source for an article…. Here’s a specific article on demand–national and global.
- The actual article behind the New Yorker satire cover on Obama.
- Maybe the Enron trial wasn’t as open-and-shut as I believed? Hard to tell.
