While You Were Out, 8-27-2010

Confession: I haven’t actually been saving links all week. Looks like I’ll have to scramble back to find the cool things I saw like…

http://putthison.com/post/1003890136/put-this-on-episode-3-work-itunes-vimeo – Put This On is a better blog than it is a video blog, but episodes things come around so rarely that I guess it can go here. I really loved the bit with the lady who does Nerd Boyfriend. Having now seen her articulate her blog in person, I totally get that whole shtick now.

http://pubrecord.org/special-to-the-public-record/8121/rigging-of-digg-covert-mob-conservatives/ – A fascinating exposé of a far-right fringe group banding together to game the crap out of Digg. A few years ago I interned with a popular blog, and while we weren’t exactly gaming the system, part of my job included cultivating influence on Digg.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/22/weekinreview/22worth.html?pagewanted=all – Your daily dose of medieval misogyny and barbaric sexual oppression in the Islamic world. Nothing to see here, folks…

http://www.csicop.org/si/show/bridging_the_chasm_between_two_cultures/ – This was from a few years ago, but MetaFilter and me only discovered it recently. Famous New Age writer turns her back on all the bunk and joins the skeptical community. This piece is way too long, but still worth it. Also check out the insights here: http://www.metafilter.com/94583/Bridging-the-Chasm-Between-Two-Cultures

http://www.2dopeboyz.com/2010/08/04/xv-v-is-for-vizzy-mixtape/ – I’ve been jamming to this for like the last two weeks. Seriously, if you are into the kind of music that I’m into at all, check it out.
