Sometimes I stumble across really interesting things. I file them away in my mental toolbox, and it often serves me well.

I like this last part from the article:

"Pierson’s ideas on beating the predators:
...
Stick with the established publishers such as Science, Nature, and Cell, even though their costs are high.
..."

That reminds me of a great idea I have for eliminating poverty: become a millionaire (even though you'll have to pay higher taxes).

This is completely impractical. I want to do it
These backblaze guys know how to tickle a nerd's inner gearhead. I'll never build a 200TB rack server, but damned if I'm not interested in how they're doing it. Very cool stuff.

When viewed from the google calendar tab in Thunderbird (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/thunderbird/addon/google-calendar-tab/), within the last couple of weeks, my calendar has switched from Month view to something more-or-less like the Agenda view (though it only shows the current week). I have done nothing specifically to invoke this change. Anyone else experiencing this? I can add events using the Quick Add option, but cannot edit anything. Extremely lame.

"Easterbrook told CBC News he “finds it sickening that a tax-paying citizen has to choose between a three-month prison sentence and willingly giving personal, private information."

I find it, perhaps not sickening, but definitely curious that a tax-paying citizen would prefer that the government base the assignment of tax revenues on wild guesses as to what government services require them, rather than take advantage of the sort of data that is collected in the census.
