- 118 - Online Communities Map (Not For Navigation) « Strange Maps
Somewhat in the style of a treasure map, this ‘Map of Online Communities’ shows MySpace, Wikipedia, SecondLife and other user-generated phenomena now populating the internet. The geography is not as random as one could assume at first glance. Area and position are significant. Thus, each community’s geographic area represents its estimated size, and the ‘compass-shaped island’ gives clues as to what each quarter signifies: * North are more ‘practical’ communities, * South is for the ‘intellectuals’. * West lie the communities with a ‘real life’ connection, * East those with a focus on the web itself.

- A Critic at Large: Booted: What really ails Italy? by Tim Parks April 11, 2011
Anniversaries are uplifting when you have something to celebrate. A couple on the edge of divorce do not rejoice that their wedding anniversary is around the corner. Something of the same uneasiness surrounded the hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary of the Italian state, on March 17th. As late as February, the government couldn’t decide whether the day should be declared a national holiday. The Northern League, a major party in the ruling coalition, complained about the loss of working hours; many of the League’s members have a separatist agenda and want to avoid a surge in national pride. The governor of South Tyrol

- Ask Zompist: Teacher! Leave those kids alone!
Dear <<Zompist>>, In a recent post to the ZBB thread "Prescriptivism, the French Academy, and reality" you made these provocative statements: Now, the smartest people teach themselves; but for everyone else, there's education. I tend to think this is a mistake— the classroom is one of the worst ways to learn, except for a small fraction of people. What makes learning in a classroom ineffective? How should we educate people instead? —Mike

- Chapter 11: Einstein, Kaluza-Klein And The Kleinbottle Universe
As a great deal of the controversy concerning the contemporary dilemma inherent in the sciences, the first part of this chapter deals with the strange reportage of Einstein’s last years, as far from being deluded or misguided, his own nagging intuitions concerning the nature of Ultimate Reality led to him to discard his own theories and turn instead to the work of Kaluza and Klein. His insights were astute, and yet even those who work within the area of String Theory, an orientation itself aligned with the later theories that Einstein was engaged with were somehow compelled to diminish Einstein and his more recent theories, adulating his earlier accomplishments and anchoring for the public a false impression of the state of contemporary physics.
