From CNN: poll suggests McCain - Rice ticket could win big. Yes, please.
On the other hand, a National Health System is not polling well: 29% favor national health insurance. No, please.
I'll be the four millionth blogger to link cartoonist Hugh LcLeod: why I deleted my Twitter account. Of course, I've never had a Twitter account, and have a curious lack of desire to open one... interesting too is the contrast he draws between 2005 and 2006. I've noticed that too; the blogosphere has become increasingly inwardly focused; Twitter is just the endpoint of that trend.
I'm not used to getting space news from CNet, but whatever: Orbiter's close-ups of Martian moon Phobos. "NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter used its High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera to take the sharpest images ever of the Martian moon Phobos, though previous spacecraft have swung closer to the moon for more detailed images. Scientists were able to add color and combine the photographs to make a 3D image of the terrain." Excellent. Sci-fi movies are gradually being replaced by reality :)
