  • Queen City Discovery – An interesting blog about urban exploration in Cincinnati that some guys in Hive13 told me about
  • Amidst a pile of other new-age and holistic bullshit in some free magazine, I miraculously discovered an ad for the “Uptown Farmer’s Market” at Garden Park – 3581 W. Galbraith Road, Fridays 12-7, Saturdays 10-2, 513-238-6616

programming

  • MapReduce – I don’t care what your opinion of MapReduce is or how much it might suck, I am just putting this here so I will encounter it later and remember that it exists.
  • Epigrams on Programming from Alan Perlis – Written in 1982 but still pretty true.

  • Balance of Power – A geopolitics game by Chris Crawford (also with his interesting essay/article here).

lit,historical

  • We the People Network – I was searching for an image of the Declaration of Independence here and discovered they have rather high-resolution scans (like, the Declaration is 63 megapixels) of that and many other historical documents too.

video,apps

  • MediaCoder – “a free universal batch media transcoder, which nicely integrates most popular audio/video codecs and tools into an all-in-one solution.” Only natively works on Windows, but came in handy trying to re-encode some video at work after I found that fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/[Avidemux] liked to either crash or screw up the encode (on Windows at least as I know I’ve used it without problems on Linux)
  • CamStudio – An open source screen recorder (screencast?) application. Only works on Windows, but works pretty well.
