Ray Bradbury
When Arthru c. Clarke died today, I thought of my other favorite authors of his generation. Madeline L'Engle just died in the past year, and Ray Bradbury is alive and writing; wish to tell him I am glad he had the LA library

Ayn Rand, Hugely Popular Author and Inspiration to Right-Wing Leaders, Was a Big Admirer of Serial Killer | Books | AlterNet
amazing story of her first years here in the United States, when Ayn Rand wrote in her notebooks and fashioned her first hero after a serial killer of the 1920's.\n\nWhy was this information not available when I was wanting to learn more about her early life? Everyone who knew her and helped her rise to prominence didn't want to have this information leaking out to the general public.

The Experts vs. the Amateurs: A Tug of War over the Future of Media - Knowledge@Wharton
"A tug of war over the future of media may be brewing between so-called user-generated content -- including amateurs who produce blogs, video and audio for public consumption -- and professional journalists, movie makers and record labels, along with the deep-pocketed companies that back them. The likely outcome: a hybrid approach built around entirely new business models, say experts at Wharton."

"Digg released their iframe based software toolbar (DiggBar) this past week and I’ve been trying to educate both users and publishers as to why frames are a very bad idea. "

The Growth Of Framebars
"The DiggBar does not do a 301 redirect. If you shorten a page using DiggBar service, then Twitter the short URL you receive, any links that Google or other search engines find via that short URL will send credit to Digg, not to the destination page you shortened."

Daring Fireball: How to Block the DiggBar
Warning: Adult language, yet a necessary discussion of trends and issues in url shortening services.

"But unlike normal URL shortening services, when you load these Digg URLs, rather than redirect you to the original URL, Digg loads a page which frames the content of the original site. As a user, what you see is that the URL in your browser’s location field remains digg.com/1234, and the content of the destination site loads underneath a Digg-branded toolbar."

Why Engadget is blocking the DiggBar | Joshua Topolsky
In our opinion, the DiggBar takes Digg’s approach to news gathering and dissemination one step too far. By hijacking URLs, they complicate an end-user’s experience on our site, and from a publishing standpoint, we think it’s a step backwards to mask the content you’re visiting with shortened URLs from an unrelated site.

IBM Research | IBM Research | Paul Keyser
Science accounts for more of the texts surviving from antiquity than any other sort of writing, and yet is rarely studied or even read because the texts are relatively hard to find in translation.\n\nMr. Keyser, with Georgia L. Irby-Massie, wrote the science source book: Greek Science of the Hellenistic Era: A Sourcebook w/ updated translations
