inimitable +Philip Plait has this excellent essay.
In early June, Nobel laureate Tim Hunt was asked to speak at a luncheon sponsored by the Korea Federation of Women’s Science and Technology Associations at a science communications meeting in South Korea. What he said there is now Internet history. He made a series of sexist comments, saying that...

this. just beautiful.
 
Nailed it.
Of all the sour grapes conservatives chewed this past weekend over the same-sex marriage ruling, perhaps Ross Douthat’s was the sourest. While other conservatives moved on to incoherent babbling about “religious liberty”, Douthat used his New York Times column to dig his heels into the argument soundly rejected by Anthony Kennedy’s opinion in Obergefell v. Hodges: that same-sex marriage is somehow an assault on traditional marriage.

This year’s Hugo Awards controversy is confusing. There are two kinds of puppies! Are the puppies against diversity, or literary snobbery? And so on. But really, this is all about books, and particularly what kind of books we’re supposed to celebrate. So here are eight books that can help you understand the Hugo mess.

That's not original nawk, nor the most modern Awk -- but rather some Solaris abomination.

Have you tried the same with BWK's "One True Awk"?

"I know self-care is important. As Morpheus said, there’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path. But here comes Red Riding Hood to remind you that walking the path is all well and good, but it’s even harder to stay on that path once you’ve started." -- +Jim Hines

wow. cory going.
"We've seen the writing on the wall: this is not a city for families. It's not a city for people running small firms. It's not a city for people who earn their living in the arts. We've given it the best we have, and we're getting out because we can."
My family is moving to Los Angeles in two weeks. Many Londoners understand intuitively why we're going.

"In nearly all his recent roles, Ford radiates discomfort and a palpable desire to flee from the screen, like an antsy child at a cocktail party."
When is the right time to give up the craft? How much does age affect your ability to execute your art? With artisans or musicians, it's when your body fails, when your fingers can no longer keep up with your mind, or when you've exhausted your contribution to the medium and you feel that ...

Story
Tagline
programmer, photographer, occasional haiku poet. unix since 1982.
Introduction
I'm a passionate programmer and photographer, amateur philosopher, functionalist, hard-core atheist, science fiction fan, beta geek and occasional haiku poet. I study iaido [muso jikiden eishin ryu - sandan] with ohmi sensei [kyoshi 7-dan]. I have been an open systems advocate and contributor [eg. sdbm] since 1982.

I make notes here on photography, software, books, graphic design, some poetry, and other things i really like and dislike. i treat it like a shared notebook. it does not cover my history, many details of my family, other skills and interests. [i think of all so-social networking as a theatre of matryoshka dolls. it stops me from assuming too much. what you see is much less than what you may get.]

i have several albums of images here and more added when I have the time. i don't try to "freeze" moments with my camera; I let them flow, I let them move and capture me. to paraphrase thomas merton, photography enables me to find myself and lose myself at the same time. I work abstracts, shallow depth of field, motion. I'm a long time nikon user.

I hope you find something of lasting value in my stream. enjoy.
