Yes, it's good... but I have trouble finding the energy to read all the way through it for some reason.  :-(

8-bit greatness.  I also loved his track "Messeah".

These beautiful pictures are composites assembled from multiple pictures taken at different depths of field, which gives them uncanny detail and striking color.

Wow.  Those are marvelous.  Did you follow the link to the French BLUE honey made from M&Ms ?

On April 17, I'll be speaking at PayPal's SkySong Connect conference in Scottsdale.

http://www.skysongconnect.com/speakers.html

I'll be talking about how symmetric monoidal closed categories show up in physics, topology, logic, and computer science. You can find slides and notes for an older version of the talk on my website:

I recall reading an exposé a few months ago (maybe a year ago?) about how "free-to-play" games try to convince people to pay money for items, as well as do things like buy points, which can be exchanged for tokens, which can be exchanged for amulets, which can be exhanged for other things; as players get farther away from actual money, they stop being able to reason about how much a particular thing actually costs.  Does anyone have a link to this article?

This is so wonderfully terrific.
Here's a bit of science that you can perform in your kitchen. You'll need some thawed strawberries, pineapple juice, and a bit of rum.

Ach, I hated the Nicolaitans, with their wee, beady eyes and that smug look on their faces: “Ooh, you’re going to hold the antinomian heresy of Corinth, oooh!”

I had always heard that the specifics of the error of the Nicolaitians was unknown, but that, based on the word's roots, it might be related to the church becoming more hierarchical and valuing leaders/clergy way more than the laity.
