watch a talk

I've been lucky to see a number of interesting talks and I figured I might as well point out a few they you can be lucky enough to see too:

How to survive a Robot Uprising -- hearing him talk was actually funnier than reading the book.

DNA and the Brain -- A talk about autism by James Watson of Watson & Crick.

An Inconvenient Truth -- Al Gore's talk about global warming (you'll have to go to a theater to see this one)

Does all this linking to Google video make me a company shill?

emusic traps me again

I was all set to cancel my eMusic account because I felt I had grabbed all of the music they had that I wanted. But there in my "your new arrivals" they had 3 albums I wanted. So now, (The Tourniquet, Get Behind Me Satan, and White Blood Cells later), I can't help but continue my subscription and hope that the quality new music keeps rolling in.

(And they now have the entire Stereophonics catalogue! That's at least another 3 months worth of downloads.)

al gore on snl

Last night's skit with Al Gore on SNL was, I must say, quite awesome. Thanks to Adam for the pointer.
