Last day for entering caption contest [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] — I plan to close it tonight and build the voting poll.

See the second comment on my most recent Google Books post — Fascinating perspective.

the_flea_king on the paradox of choice — Good reading for writers.

Locus Award Finalists Announced — Lots of really good work there, by lots of really good people. Congratulations to all!

A cyberattack on an American city — Sobering, and sadly unsurprising. (Thanks to lillypond.)

?otD: Where in the world is Carmen San Diego?

I don't know that I'd exactly call it a "cyberattack."

They crawled into 3 or 4 different manholes and took a boltcutter to the fiber bundles.

A physical assault on the networking infrastructure, yes, but "cyberattack" suggests crackers working via software rather than criminals destroying the physical plant.

I hope they catch the guys, lock 'em up and throw away the key; it wasn't nice around here until they finished patching the fibers.

It was certainly a wakeup call about the over-centralization of the backbone, though.
