I was planning to post something interesting we’d done with Windows VMs recently. Sadly Windows has a way of confounding you at the last minute, failing with no useful error information. So that’ll have to wait.
In the meantime, a range of the best writing around the web (according to me) …
- Science/Space: Selenian Boondocks (space exploration), Bad Science (buy the book!), R J Lipton’s brilliant mathematics blog, Bad Astronomy, Chris Dillow’s blog analysing news and current events
- Politics: Ben’s prison blog (yes, he’s a real prisoner), Transform (drug policy advocacy blog), This septic isle, The Heresiarch
- Computers and programming: LtU, Proggit, Hacker News, Groklaw, Roughly Drafted
- Cooking: Cooking Issues (blog of the New York French Culinary Institute)
- Weird/Funny/Japanese: Jamie Zawinski’s blog, Pinktentacle, Asobi Tsuchya’s blog (sometimes NSFW if your workplace cares about such things, mine doesn’t), Extra Last, B3ta, Lovely Listing, Don’t Even Reply.
With all this brilliant free writing being done, it’s no wonder newspapers are going out of business.
