"Martin Luther King Can Stop Dreaming Now" - Yikes - some sad yet truthful commentary on the state of segregation in the US.

"The Iraq War Will Cost Us $3 Trillion, and Much More" - Yikes again. 3 trillion dollars, all in the name of "the war on terror".

"Halo 3 Mythbusters: Episode 7" - I haven't had time to watch this installment, but the previous ones have been golden.

"Tending Your Software Garden" - Enough of the analogies between building software and buildings!

"Updates To Team Patter - On Primitive Conversation Thread and Controlling Builds With Natural Language" - Launching builds with Live Messenger...hmmm...

"The Private Life of a Public API" - Consistency is so easy to do right, and it makes code/APIs easier to read.

"Potentially Universal Mechanism Of Aging Identified" - We're still all going to die eventually, but this is an interesting research breakthrough.

"Objective-C Scoping" - I did a little Objective-C a couple of months ago, and yes, you do have to be very cognizant of memory. This little attribute trick is nice...it would also be nice in .NET for disposable objects.

"Yawn, Linux on the iPhone" - I have mixed feelings on this. Yes, it may not be "practical" but at the same time, doing odd/strange/cool hacky things like this may lead to other adventures. At the very least, they're fun.

"Clojure. Wow." - The first paragraph says a lot: "Someone finally did it.  They created a LISP that I want to use.  Too bad it's for the JVM. :-)"
