Friday, August 14, 2009
Happy Friday, everyone! Today we feature links sent in by others, which are much appreciated (both the links and the senders).

From Cassandra: a list of controversial banned films (Life of Brian? Really?); a recommendation that we travel to asteroids; a look back at Woodstock, 40 years later; Malcolm Gladwell's take on To Kill A Mockingbird's views on race and the South; a wacky story about a pregnant cow making a run for it at a county fair; and an article on Ireland's recent law against blasphemy, which pretty much ensures that none of my relatives (myself included) can ever visit the homeland again.

From both Cassandra and Julie: an opera created by Twitter!

From Julie: Upright pianos are to be scattered around Bristol ,which sounds awesome, and Augmented Reality comes to mobile phones, which sounds vaguely sinister.

From Satori: a gorgeous look at the Rare Books Collection of the New York Public Library.

From my mom: a story from my alma mater, which is working on a technology that derives energy from urine. They call it "pee power." Um. Thanks, Mom. I think.

From Zazoo: A look at Sesame Street in different countries, and how Muppets help kids everywhere to understand the world in which they live. Good stuff.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.
