march 16 roundup - how to flirt in a burqa

  1. Better living through technology: a burqa that keeps you covered... but sends pictures of your face to bluetooth-enabled mobile devices.
  2. Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo” is a sentence with better grammar than most of mine.
  3. Coffee makes you more susceptible to arguments--but only good ones. "Is an increase [sic] understanding of other people's arguments worth the price of being more easily convinced?"
  4. Transportation Safety Administration has a blog. It's pretty good, and not at all written by trolls.
  5. W on art: hero, scalawag, what's the dif? "W does what he always does when he has no clue: he pulls something out of his ass and presents it as fact, and even becomes so convinced of its veracity that he completely disregards all evidence to the contrary."
  6. Online or offline, some neighborhoods are just better. "Outside.In, a website designed to gather and organize neighborhood news, published a list of “America’s Top 10 Bloggiest Neighborhoods.” What was striking (but perhaps not surprising) is that all were living examples of the kind of places Jacobs championed: Clinton Hill in Brooklyn, Portrero Hill in San Francisco, Shaw in Washington. If the physical form of a neighborhood is conducive to community, so is its virtual form."
