Sunspots 224

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

A case study of how the media distort scientific findings, mostly, maybe entirely, unintentionally.

(sort of) Sports Illustrated reports that Rick Pitino, successful basketball coach (He was probably the first big-college men's coach to hire a woman as an assistant) had an affair, probably a single incident, several years ago. SI says that Pitino is a "staunch Roman Catholic whose contract includes dishonesty and moral depravity as grounds for firing."

An installation hall of shame -- list of programs that install things you probably didn't know that they were going to install, and that you didn't want.

Wired observes the anniversary (Aug. 17, 2000) of the date when 50% of the US had access to the Internet -- it's now 75% or more -- and remarks that this stupendous growth, from when Internet access first became available to the general public, has taken place within the lifetime of a high school sophomore!
