My delicious.com bookmarks for October 12th through October 16th

  • Palm Pre smartphone – "So you're after a smartphone, you've got money to burn and an obvious decision to make: this or the iPhone. No other touchscreen smartphone is even in the running. The Pre has some obvious advantages. It's a bit smaller than the iPhone and 'Synergy' works well, which could prove useful if you're more familiar with Facebook than the concept of Gmail or an Exchange server. But weigh it against the iPhone and it's hard to recommend."
  • The Hitchhiker’s Guide Turns 30 – Still one of my favourite books.
  • Cat registered as hypnotherapist – To be fair, cats do seem to convince people to pet them and feed them without any apparent pay-back. Maybe they do hypnotise them?

My delicious.com bookmarks for September 8th through September 10th

  • "The Government" – "Try something. Every time somebody complains about the evils or failings of 'the government,' strike out 'the government' and see what results." (via @marcoarment)
  • People get red-dy – "The idea of a ginger festival may sound like little more than a bit of fun, but when 3,000 redheads came together for a recent gathering it became a bonding experience."
  • Placebos Are Getting More Effective. Drugmakers Are Desperate to Know Why. – "It's not that the old meds are getting weaker, drug developers say. It's as if the placebo effect is somehow getting stronger."

My delicious.com bookmarks for August 25th through August 27th

  • Clive Thompson on the New Literacy – Maybe the Internet isn't the end of literacy after all…
  • Galileo’s telescope reaches 400th anniversary – "Exactly 400 years ago today, on 25 August 1609, the Italian astronomer and philosopher Galilei Galileo showed Venetian merchants his new creation, a telescope – the instrument that was to bring him both scientific immortality and, more immediately, a whole lot of trouble."
  • Creationists, now they’re coming for your children – "The Greatest Show on Earth is a book about the positive evidence that evolution is a fact. It is not intended as an antireligious book. I’ve done that, it’s another T-shirt, this is not the place to wear it again. Bishops and theologians who have attended to the evidence for evolution have given up the struggle against it."
