Not a ton of links today, I just didn’t see that much of interest this week.
Why Finland? Because I got a lot of respect for Finland. Lots of the feel-good social democracy stuff of their neighbors, but still have a tradition of not taking crap from the communists next door. And everyone goes about with a puukko. I catch flak from people who freak out I carry a folding pocket knife everywhere I go.
Polygons, point clouds, and polyhedra – Oh My!
The first entry in a (hopefully) weekly series on how we simulate physics, from the basics on.
First day of the official Tech Tuesday!
Tech Tuesday starts in two weeks, not two days ago, as expected, because Will & I have lives.
Just finished a two day Hackathon, and this will be the last Tech Thursday, since we are moving it to Tuesday (where, let’s be honest, it rightfully belongs – Tech Tuesday just reads better).
Release deadline coming up, so light list this week. I also have some other technical posts in the hopper, but I haven’t had time to finish editing them. Hopefully I will next week.
Back from Maui with a fresh set.
I’m in Hawaii on vacation, but I still wanted you all to have something.
Another set of tech links, free of any mention of Hitler or Marijuana!
Another Thursday, another round of tech links! Enjoy!
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not “Eureka!” (I found it!) but “That’s funny …”
— Isaac Asimov
‘The most frightening phrase in the Russian language is “That’s odd.”

More of what Oscar thought was cool in Science.
Another set of tech links. Sorry for the light commentary, busy week at work…
I’m starting to think Will is using me to put these together when he wants a day to screw around and not produce content…
Like Tech Tuesday, except I’ve been busy. More Tech News, More Tech Commentary, More Geeking Out in the Comments.
Some experiences are best shared, because you really DON’T want to experience it for yourself.
Another round of examining engineering tradeoffs!
Materials, Machines, & More! A new Tech Linky!
Wherein I dare to hope…
Time to talk about technology!
Some technology links and light discussion.
Oscar talks about engineering and the choices that go into it.
Oscar judges the State Science Fair and offers commentary
Looking ahead to the driverless future.
Taking another stab at how we can deal with firearms in America.
It’s a thankless duty, but thanks are appreciated anyway.
Oscar says hi & makes promises.
