Today was a good day (thanks for wondering :)... I spent the day in my office in Vista, but unlike many such days, it was blissfully meeting-free, allowing me to walk around and say "hi" to people, see what they're working on, etc., and actually sit quietly in my little cube and get some work done. Sometimes it seems my days in the office are one meeting from dawn to dusk, this was nice. And at the end of the day I did a great ride, 31 miles, the longest since my lung infection, and for the first time I felt oxygen transfer taking place again... the fire in Camp Pendleton left a nice cloud to color the sunset, and there was a full moon. What more could you ask for?
PZ Myers reports on a new technique called Digital Scanned Laser Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (DSLM), which let's a researcher watch every cell in a developing zebrafish - all at once. The picture at left shows a developing cell, highlighted in realtime. The movies of these cells growing are pretty mind-blowing.
Apple announced new MacBooks today, but perhaps the most interesting aspect wasn't the laptops, but the fact that Steve Jobs took a background role in presenting them, leading to speculation that he might be preparing his farewell...
Matt Cutts points out a nice new feature for site operators, Google has a new tool which shows you broken inbound links, as well as problems which occurred when the Google crawler scanned your site. Nice.
