"Code Reviews" - I'm not a big fan of the long, boring code reviews, but in short bursts they can be effective.

".NET 4: Monitor.Enter replaced by Monitor.Enter" - A subtle but interesting change to the emitted code for lock.

"Type-Free Lambda Calculus in C#, Pre-4.0 – Defining the Lambda Language Runtime (LLR)" - Bart's blog is quickly becoming on of my favorite brain-melting blogs.

"Big Bang Theory, the video (but not that one)" - Nice overview of the origin of the universe.

"What Would You Ask Steven Anderson?" - For some reason I'm expecting a Haggard-like result with this character. If you're interested, the interview is now posted here.

"ETW Introduction and Overview" - I've never heard of ETW until this article - interesting.
