[links] Link salad mistakes a '73 Pinto for a starship

The entire text of my Sunspin story "Permanent Fatal Errors" is now up in four parts — If you like, check out the anthology it comes from, Fermi paradox-themed Is Anybody Out There? from DAW.

Wolfram Alpha Finds iPad Niche — The iPad 3G is settling nicely into my home. I need to write another review soon. It is a hell of a fine e-reader.

Archive Gallery: 138 Years of Quirky Inventions from the Pages of PopSci — Weird and whacky. (Via Dark Roasted Blend.)

USS Wasp (CV-7) — Is that really "Doc" Savage on the flight line?

Squash and Stretch — A golf ball in extremis, courtesy of art physics guru James Gurney.

Flotillas and the Wars of Public Opinion — A relatively dispassionate analysis of the Israeli mess over the weekend. It would be nice to see our government respond to an ally's military murder of unarmed civilians.

?otD: Have you ever seen a UFO?
