Linkblogging For 09/11/11

I’ve had two very bad days with little sleep, so haven’t been able to finish the posts I wanted to get up, on Georg Cantor and canon in Doctor Who (not both in the same post). One will be up tomorrow. In the meantime, links:

Why the Social Graph is neither

A VERY long post by Tardis Eruditorum on The Deadly Assassin.

The Potter Blogger on why he no longer supports Labour propaganda front 38Degrees

Philip Purser-Hallard on his recent loss of faith

Leonard Pierce on Herman Cain

And Dave Winer on why we should stand up against those bullies who attack Richard Stallman

    Sadly, I won’t be reading the TARDIS Eruditorum any more since when he talks about “a school of people, who I have been tweaking gleefully of late” he would appear to mean me.

    I’m not interested in fuelling his fantasies that he’s taking some heroic stand against the evils of dogmatic rationalism (or even supporting his assuming that such a thing exists) so I’ll be walking away.

    Shame though; used to good.

      Yeah, I saw how nasty things had got between you (and Alex) and him. Obviously I’m on your side on that one, but I’ll still be reading his stuff for now.

      • Richard says:

        No reason for you not to read it; just expressing my regret that I won’t be going to a site that gives the impression of spoiling for an unnecessary fight with me. I’ll not bother thanks.

        Also, I hope that we didn’t come across as being nasty, just debating fairly vigorously. But the possibility of descending into flame war exists, so again, I’ll just quietly remove myself from any possible fray.

        • Andrew Hickey says:

          Oh no, neither of you came off badly *at all*. The atmosphere seemed nasty, not you or Alex. I can’t blame you at all for wanting to withdraw.

    Huge thanks for linking to that Social Graph article – it’s fascinating!
