Random Observations

To the extent I have heroes today, here’s two of them: Bruce and Jon.

While I realize Google is intent on taking over the interweb, I’ve started playing with its Chrome browser and it is fair competition for Firefox. Chrome, though, really needs to follow Firefox’s extensions concept and, reportedly, a new beta version may be doing so.

Bookish Linkage

The 2009 Hugo Award nominations have been announced. The only best novel finalist I’ve read is Cory Doctorow’s YA book Little Brother.

Also announced were the finalists for the Arthur C. Clarke Award, “the UK’s premier prize for science fiction literature.” I do worse here, having read none of the six.

An interesting blog approach: How books got their titles.

Nonbookish Linkage

Space porn: Saturn’s moons.

Earth porn: Undersea volcano erupts.

I have complete faith in the continued absurdity of whatever’s going on.
