Italian scientists have recreated the DNA of the fascist warrior-poet D’Annunzio from a 99-year-old semen stain they found.


Eliezer Yudkowsky’s blog posts from 2006-2009 have been collected as a pay-what-you-want ebook
. I think a lot of Yudkowsky’s stuff is wrong, and some of it dangerously so, and LessWrong seemed, last I looked, to have turned into a weird sewer of “Red Pill” men’s rights types (and it’s apparently getting ever more culty). But at the same time, a good proportion of Yudkowsky’s writing is genuinely clever — he’s maybe almost 10% as clever as he thinks — and if nothing else his writing makes you think. Certainly worth sticking a few quid in if you’re the kind of person, like me, who gets as stimulated by reading interestingly wrong people as by reading people getting things right.

A long interview with Stewart Lee. I will be disappointed forever that the planned TV show with Alan Moore never happened.

Jo Walton on Terry Pratchett

A good post on neoreaction, platonism, and transphobia.

The RPG version of Charles Stross’ Laundry is currently in a cheap bundle offer as DRM-free PDFs, with 10% going to the EFF

Stross has also written a piece about Pratchett

  1. I can’t help feeling Fascist Warrior-Poet Park is going to end in tears.
