Breakfast for Barry — A Hugo campaign of a reasonable sort. Check it out, give it consideration.
muneraven gets into an argument about the Hugos — Despite a certain amount of crabbiness all around, the comment thread is highly informative concerning the machinery of Hugo-dom, if you care about that sort of thing. Good on muneraven and kevinstandlee for having an interesting discussion.

Higgs bosons are us — CERN goes god hunting.
Weather Engineering China — Olympic sized ambitions.
