Electric Velocipede has a subscription drive — Come on, you know you want to support real cool independent short fiction.
Dr. Roundbottom: Scientist & Philosopher — If you haven’t following Dr. Roundbottom, you should. An ongoing series of steampunk/clockpunk photography, art, podcasts and generalized cool weirdness.
Epenthetis, IPA, and r-fulness — More fun linguistic geekery from Language Log.
Intensifying the Sun — Improving the efficiency of solar power through light management.
The Reformation Online — “The Most Timely and Scientific Site on the Internet.” For certain non-rational values of “timely” and “scientific”, yes. Riveting stuff, in a sort of eschatonic train wreck way. (Thanks to lt260.)
