Linkblogging For 6/8/14

Posted in linkblogging by Andrew Hickey on August 6, 2014

I don’t normally do two linkblogs this close together, but all the time I would normally spend writing has been spent today dealing with reactions to last night’s post, which can best be summed up by this graph of hits to my blog:

Yeah, so I’ve been a bit busy tonight on Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter, so you get links…

Brad Hicks needs feminism because the patriarchy is toxic to polyamory

A great site that collects mixes of imaginary albums — either things like “the album the Beatles would have made in 1974″, or albums that were planned but never released.

Sean Carroll on quantum sleeping beauty and the multiverse

Greg Egan on why that “quantum drive” people have been talking about is bollocks

And therebeltrouser adds a personal testimony to my post from yesterday.

Linkblogging For 4/8/14

Not much to write today because I had insomnia last night and had to work late today, so you get links:

Labour are attacking the Tories from the right over immigration and benefits

Jennie describes the Labour Party’s normal thought-processes

Korzybski’s Science And Sanity is free to read online — I’ve never read this, but it hugely influenced a lot of people I *have* read.

A collection of different versions of the Robin Hood legends

And a nurse who deals with terminally ill patients writes about Torchwood: Miracle Day (a TV show in which everyone in the world became unable to die, no matter how ill or injured — unsurprisingly, she has *opinions* about this programme).

And being entirely self-congratulatory, here’s a nice review of my book An Incomprehensible Condition, by Lawrence Burton

Linkblogging For 30/7/14

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Hickey on July 30, 2014

A really rather good post by Slate Star Codex on libertarianism, non-self-regulating systems, transhumanism and races to the bottom. Just don’t make the mistake I did of reading the comments — or even worse, of replying to them…

The one good thing in those comments — a link to Design For A Brain by William Ross Ashby as a free ebook

Scalzi on Amazon’s latest comeback in its fight with publishers

Nested — a toy that randomly creates billions of “universes”

Ryan North on gendered pronouns

And Big Finish are doing two-day special deals all month. Today’s has, for £1 each, Omega and Davros (two extremely good Doctor Who audios), Master (a decent one let down by a poor ending), Zagreus (a… less great one), and Dalek Empire Series 2.
