Fascinating: Steve Blank presents Hidden in Plain Sight: The Secret History of Silicon Valley as a Google Tech Talk. If you like the History Channel, World War II, technology, etc., you will probably like this presentation. Basically codebreaking has been covered pretty well, but the radar and bomb targeting stories of WWII technology have not.
Hans Reiser: Once a Linux Visionary, Now Accused of Murder is not a new story, but the trial is ongoing. There is a trial blog by Henry K. Lee of the SF Chronicle. The case is sort of like O.J. plus Scott Petersen plus Antitrust plus Birthday Girl. Why this case isn't getting national attention, I have no idea. "Computer genius attracted to violent video games accused of murdering Russian bride who leaves him for strange drug-laden BSDM relationship with his friend?" Juicy! The guy is clearly a brilliant software developer (I use his ReiserFS filesystem myself, and have read the technical whitepaper he wrote about it), but if the allegations are true, which they seem to be based on my understanding of the evidence, he is not a master criminal.
Cool: I remember the Cliff Hanger video game. It's the reason Lupin III looked so familiar when I saw it on Adult Swim over a decade later. This was one of the laserdisc-based games that had astonishingly high graphics quality compared to normal games, but was prone to hardware failures due to the hardship of using a laserdisc player in a random-access fashion.
In-N-Out Burger's Secret Menu is real; I've had the Grilled Cheese.
I had never, ever seen Microsoft do anything really fun and creative in the realm of marketing, until I saw this: Helping your child understand the stay-at home server.
Funny: lyrics to Fist City (by Loretta Lynn), Zero Punctuation: Guitar Hero III, David Lynch disparages the iPhone as a device suitable for watching movies and explains his position on product placement, MacHEADS movie trailer, Encyclopedia Dramatica explains "300" (kinda nsfw, definitely stupid, but funny), Jerry O'Connell parodies that Tom Cruise leaked video from a few days ago.
Mike Huckabee says "People are looking for a presidential candidate who reminds them more of the guy they work with rather than the guy that laid them off." in Out With the Old, In With the New. I like the guy; it's too bad his political positions are almost completely wrong.
