- Guardian: CIA doctors face human experimentation claims. Just read the headline.
- Tim Bray: Ravelry. Tim interviews Casey Forbes, the tech guy behind Ravelry, a site for knitting enthusiasts and covers everything from bootstrapping a business to scaling Ruby on Rails.
- The Numbers Guy: Some Theorists Withhold Best-Voting-System Award. Voting experts weigh in on the new voting system for the Oscars this year.
- Hanan Cohen: Spoken Directions to Web Content (aka “Go to page number”). A good, simple idea for improving Web site usability. This approach could also be extended to create a spoken instructions/shortened URL hybrid service for a site.
