June 2008 Archives
Albert Einstein's FBI file, released by the FBI under FOIA. 1,427 pages. (Thanks Dad.)
A.V. Club interview with Jonathan Coulton, in their series of interviews with musicians based on what their iPods play in shuffle mode.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: The Abridged Script. (Uh, spoilers.) I agree with commenter rocko: "dear god, the more I think about this movie, the more stupid it becomes. I try not to think about it..."
A plugin for Firefox 3 for Mac that enables in-window viewing of PDF files. Firefox 3 - Safari 3 ~= 0.
MagCloud, print-on-demand no-cost-to-set-up printed magazines. Now I want to start a magazine.
A picture of the Earth and the Moon, as seen from Mars. Photo taken last October.
Is Google Making Us Stupid? I made it about half-way through the first page. How far did you get?
Douglas Engelbart: The Demo. Aka "The Mother of All Demos." The inventor of the computer mouse demonstrates the NLS, a networked mouse-enabled terminal, in a 1968 film. About 18 minutes in, he starts clicking on links in text, and refers to them as such. Later, they introduce the collaboration features. Watch the whole thing (1 hr 14 minutes).
goosh.org, a browser-based Unix-shell-like interface to Google. Surprisingly useful for keyboarding across the web. I need a Unix terminal version.
Magnetic Movie, a 5-minute movie visualizing magnetic fields in scientific laboratories, narrated by the scientists.
