New analysis of the chronology of ancient Egypt.

What I'd really like to see is a 3D overlay on something like Google Earth that had the time-dimension entered in. I'd love to be able to hit 'play' and watch the spread and division of humanity over the past 50000 years.

Deinekes brings up a good point in this post, though, which is to say that Haplogroup assignments for the various ethnic groups is a bit dubious. Some groups have a high concentration of one haplogroup and very little variation, while other groups have massive variation within the population structure.

Interesting (and potentially germane to modern times) explanation for the massive social upheaval in the near east at the dawn of history.

I suspect this tendency in humans is related to the same aspect of our psychology that allows us to trust experts and therefore take advantage of specialization in our societies.

We need a new metaphor for what email is. It is not (and never has been) like a letter enclosed in an envelope. Instead its proper analog corollary is the postcard. When you send email data, it passes in plain text across networks owned and operated by third parties. Would anyone be surprised that a postal worker might see what's written on your postcard? So why are we surprised that a mail router has access to the contents of your email?

The only real response for someone who desires actual privacy is to use public/private key encryption. That means that the content of your messages would be scrambled and only your desired recipient would be able to unscramble it. It's not nearly as hard as most people think.
