I'm going to posting links M-F which I don't manage to blog (probably focus less on science in these links as well). I'm calling it the "Daily Data Dump." The Cloudy Revolution. 10 years after the initial hype the "cloud" is here. Somewhere Larry Ellison is crying. You Don't Need an iPad, but Farhad Manjoo really, really, loves it. It sounds like the reviews of the Kindle on steroids. I don't have a TV because the device is all about consumption, and I think I'll avoid the iPad for the same reason. But just as television and the net are merging through online streaming, I assume that the iPad is a foretaste of what's to come in computing devices. At least outside of the office (I think a little artificial constraint and discomfort probably is necessary in a work environment). You’re Born a Copy but Die an Original. The values of elderly individuals diverge in relation to their age cohort between 70 and 90. Cassini Doubleheader: Flying By Titan and Dione. Spaceflight is so banal today that it isn't necessarily newsworthy. Who remembers Dione? Michael Steele calls his critics racist. That's really weak dawg.
