Linkblogging for 22/09/09

So right now I’m quite glad I *couldn’t* make it to conference… reports coming back seem to show the leadership and rank-and-file at each other’s throats, because the leadership seem to be making increasingly bizarre pronouncements. Or at least, that’s what I’m picking up from Twitter and the few Lib Dem blogs that are active at the moment – I hope it’s not the actual case (I have very little knowledge of how the personalities in this party interact…). I’ll know more for sure when people get back and start talking properly…

In more positive news, the Social Liberal Forum and Compass are working together to advance progressive ideas in Labour and the Lib Dems. This kind of working together – bottom-up activists working across party lines – is worlds away from the ‘you do everything I say because we’re a team’ attitude that is often seen in this kind of thing…

Meanwhile Alex Wilcock analyses the pre-manifesto, and is not impressed.

While The Daily Mash have their own take on the conference.

Scholars and Rogues have a balanced look at Norman Borlaug.

And possibly the best scientific paper I’ve heard about in a long while.

And finally – Google may have fixed the IE6 problem for good! Now if we could only get them to do the same for Windows itself…
