Looking forward to reading Ken Liu's new book, The Grace of Kings.

My favorite short story of his is Mono no aware:

His Wikipedia page has a list of other stories online:

Ken Liu's debut is an epic saga of gods, kings and rebels, set in an invented world with echoes of pan-Asian myth. Reviewer Amal El-Mohtar calls it "beautiful, nuanced, fierce, original and diverse."

This is old news, but I just found out that the Valve economist Yanis Varoufakis is actually now Greek financial minister. 

His Valve's economics blog:

As the Syriza Party took the helm of the Greek government in earnest on Tuesday, the Guardian newspaper described its selection of top cabinet ministers, announced by the new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, as "a formidable coterie of academics, human rights advocates, mavericks and visionaries."

Finally done with Mother Earth, Mother Board, such a good read! Someone should do an update of it, I wonder how things are different/same these days w.r.t. cable laying.
