Around the Web

Yes, I know I missed this feature last week. I apologize. I posted a review instead. I'm going to have another review up of The Reality Dysfunction tomorrow (which I have started to read to the exclusion of all other books, a rare phenomena which happens only very occasionally and forces me to slow down my review postings), which is why this Around the Web is posted today instead of my usual Wednesday (Hello, run-on sentence...). Fascinating stuff, I know. 

Anyway, here it is. It seems like it's been a pretty quiet week all around so, as always, if I missed something, feel free to harp on me to add it.
