Interesting links of the day 4
Written on 20 Dec 2009.
An interesting posting on The Physics of Space Battles - not tremendously scientific, but certainly an enjoyable diversion for the Sci-Fi inclined.
Theodore Dalrymple's (pen name for Anthony Daniels) Not With a Bang But a Whimper: The Politics & Culture of Decline looks like a good last-minute stocking filler. An old boy at the pub claimed that Theodore "is a sage" - high praise.
Also from Simon Willison is a superb introduction to Node.js - it does look tempting.
