Sunspots 53

Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:

For those who use Bloglines to check on other blogs and RSS feeds, get your Bloglines page up. Hit the m key. Hit it again. You will probably find this useful.

The response of Answers in Genesis to the discovery of a possible intermediate between fish and amphibians, and the response of Reasons to Believe, and the response to these responses from Dispatches from the Culture Wars.

Women who have had breast implants have an increased risk of suicide. (They are less likely to die from some other causes, including breast cancer.) In case you wonder where I got this, I subscribe to the Women's Bioethics Blog.

Before you discard or donate that old computer, you might want to think about the data that's still on the old hard disk.

This year's nominees for the Webby Awards. (I didn't make the list, and you probably didn't either.)

Google now offers the Beta of an on-line appointment calendar.

Yahoo now offers the Beta of a mapping page. It looks good. There's a Live Traffic option, and a Find on Map, which lets you overlay, say, Ice Cream stores, on a map. (To get rid of the annoying initial locations of advertisers, hit Clear in the Find on Map area.)

Michael Swanwick has written short stories to accompany each of the elements of the periodic table. At least one of them, He, is also based on the John Carter books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and my guess is that some of the rest of them are also related to previous works.

We're still traveling. Let's put it this way -- my entry to the Christian Carnival was last week's Sunspots. I hope to get back to more regular posts in a few days. Thanks for reading!

This week's Christian Carnival is here. (For information on locating these Carnivals, see here)

When I don't tell where I found an item above, I either found it directly, or was probably pointed to it by the Librarian's Internet Index, SciTech Daily, or Arts and Letters Daily. All of them are great.
