What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo is on a low budget

The best shot for and against the Oxford Comma. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Ira Glass on storytelling. Specifically in the beginning. While he's mostly talking about radio and TV, it also goes for all creative endeavors. This is the third of a 4 part series you can start on Youtube here.

The Bogosty Generator concept of handwavium. (Grokked from Dan)

The Speedball Textbook. Ah, Speedball pens. Good times. Good times. Back before we had computers to set our type and draw our lines. You know, when dinosaurs roamed the land.

The NRA's enemies list. You know, people who actually compile such lists aren't entirely stable. And strangely enough ti includes many organizations that represent people we are supposed to respect; like doctors, nurses, police, teachers, etc. (Grokked from Steven Gould)

Free wifi for everybody. If this comes to be, it will be amazing and will change almost everything. (Grokked from Tobias Buckell)

A legal analysis of The Contract in the Hobbit (film version). (Grokked from Jay Lake)

A spiral staircase as inspired by a whale's vertebra. Very cool. (Grokked from Tor.com)

How do you know we're living in the future, when some home hobbyists in the US can use a 3d printer to create a robotic hand for a kid in South Africa. Now you're living in the future. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

From How, 5 tips for handling high-pressure situations for in-house designers (I'm sure it also works nice for writers as well). That's nice. Although numbers 3 and 4 aren't available at the day thing. Sigh.

Tweet of my heart: @UnvirtuousAbbey: For those who think God alters the outcome of a football game while today 30,000 children die from preventable disease, we pray.
