Jag + Pod = Merlin Coupe

What do you get when you cross a Jaguar S-type with a Pod from 2001: A Space Odyssey? Why, a Merlin Coupe from Corbin Motors, of course.

Edison's Ark

As one who's interested in prior art, I find this site, Edison's Ark, utterly fascinating and alarming at the same time.

Best Headline of the Week

Best headline of the week (perhaps year): It's Sonny or Share for Supreme Court.

Just one more comment about Scott Rosenberg's mention of my nettle blog in his Salon blog (see yesterday's entry for links): his link caused a large wave of traffic, but not just ordinary web traffic. This traffic was made up of readers. Why do I know this? Because by studying the web logs for nettle, I can see who came to the site from the Salon blog link, and then follow their progress through the nettle site. And guess what? They read every damn article on my site! They'd go to the Netflix articles, for instance, and start with Part 1, then go to Part 2, then go to Part 3, Part 4, Part 5.... amazing! Many visitors to the site read a story and move on to something else. Salon readers come and read. Excellent!
