Philip Greenspun's Weblog » MIT Computer Science Lab 50th Anniversary Celebration. Great reflections on computer science, career options, and a weird take on marriage.
How the NSA is Transforming Law Enforcement. The rabbit hole just gets deeper and deeper. The law enforcement/incarceration industry is on an arc toward generating its own workload. If an agency has any free time, why not troll the databases for new cases?
Buzzfeed's founder used to write Marxist theory and it explains Buzzfeed perfectly - Vox. A perspective on advertising and media culture that I never would have found on my own.
Slightly More Than 100 Fantastic Pieces of Journalism - Conor Friedersdorf - The Atlantic.
RIP to the 'Southwest effect'? Southwest fares have taken off.
Glenn Greenwald's New Book: No Place to Hide. Regrettably, it should be on all our reading lists.
A WWII Battle Frozen in Time - The Daily Beast. One of my regrets is never having seen beneath the Truk Lagoon.

Teknoids NoteBlog: A pure linkblog.
betsy/io: A different layout for a linkblog. How does she do that?

I write longer form pieces over at my blog http://dhblog0214.smallpict.com
Background images: I alternate by days from a monochrome background to a picture, usually from http://unsplash.com , a public domain image site. I don't like the stacked-image look of a picture every day. (if you scroll down to April 16, you'll see stacked images.)
I started blogging in the '90's on my own html page and moved to Dave Winer's Radio Userland ($39.95 per year in January 2002?) https://web.archive.org/web/20030604073557/http://ecoastlife.com/weblog/index.html
