  2. Yikes.
  3. Amazing antifeatures story.
  4. Cute.
  5. Not sure how much of this is a critique of the book versus a critique of the review: The argument that Internet is undermining the role of top-down or hierarchical knowledge production is a ridiculous one and is only one that you can make if you don't actually look at the structure of the Internet/web, etc. Preferential attachment and the creation of scale free networks show that these systems are incredibly hierarchical and incredibly "top down." The institutions aren't gone, you just aren't looking for them in their new form.
  6. Should have read this one last year. Better late than never.
  7. Ubuntu App Store. :-(
  8. Awesome!
  9. I remember when someone wrote a script to do with this Altavista back in like 1997 or 1998. What do you know? It's still funny!
  10. Nice article for Wikipedia's birthday. I was a guest editor and they mention my research.
  11. "Start using your PC right away: After installing Windows 7, we pre-loaded only the software you need and removed the trial versions and bloatware that you don't, so you don't have to spend hours setting up your PC—it's ready to run, right out of the box. Your PC has been performance tuned: By getting rid of redundant utility–ware that can slow down your PC, we've verified that the software you use most often works together seamlessly, and that your computer is running at peak performance."
  12. "The policy turnaround faces sjpeg opposition in Congress, which twice authorized Constellation with bipartisan support. Even in today’s polarized political environment on Capitol Hill, opposition to the Obama plan last week also was bipartisan."
  13. Two good REs here: a good NaN errors and a fun pirate bay link.
  14. I don't think that's the most valuable lesson we can learn here.
  15. From Dustin Smith.
