Fat Cat Software – iPhoto Library Manager
$30, and probably worth it for me. Merges libraries, splits libraries, detects duplicates. Free version will let you preview operations, which will be important.

New York Times Op-Ed: Has Privacy Become a Luxury Good? | Julia Angwin
In particular, I like the spreadsheet of how much the various pieces of technology for privacy cost. $2,200 over the course of a year -- while some of that is subscription services, a lot of it will be reusable.

præclarum - Calca - the text editor for engineers
A little bit like iPython notebook, but just a general purpose calculation engine/text editor that can use variable names and simple math syntax and let you create plain text notebooks with auto-updating calculations and values. Nice, this is what computers should have been doing all along. Can't wait to get it for OS X.
