After a wonderfully relaxing holiday weekend, here are some of the links I’ve followed with interest this week.
- ‘Controversial’ blogger Gabe Chouinard is back on the scene with a new blog Mysterious Outposts.
- Bloggasm has an interesting article about Tor’s free ebook program – with this equally interesting reaction.
- Tobias Buckell writes about a disturbingly racist rejection letter this author received and it has now blown up and turned nasty.
- Richard Morgan is guest blogging at Amazon – some people are not too happy with his language (what the fuck?).
- Lava fountains at Kilauea, global warming grows glaciers at Mt. Shasta, and the USGS declares the Mt. St. Helens eruption over.
- Poll shows Obama* winning in Arizona – first polls can be very wrong and this one stands apart from the others. But, something close to 1/3 of eligible voters in Arizona didn’t live in the state when McCain was last elected to the Senate. I think that Arizona is going to be much closer than many think.
* I think that my Word spell checker is a right-wing blogger since it wants me to replace Obama with Osama.
