...after being stored away while the blog was dead.

Here's what is in my "unsorted bookmarks" contains:

  Kilim is a message-passing framework for Java that provides
ultra-lightweight threads and facilities for fast, safe, zero-copy
messaging between these threads.
  Unfortunately it's a postprocessor.

  Americans are increasingly choosing to live among like-minded
neighbours. This makes the culture war more bitter and politics harder.
  On the web too.

  Video of a stabilising ball in action, along with related photos and
  What I can't understand is where the cooling is.  Do those dampers
simply get hot?  I guess earthquakes don't last that long...

  Review of The Marriage of Sticks by Jonathan Carroll
  Got here from "if you liked that you would probably like this" link, but
not sure who the source was.  Perhaps Markson's Wittgenstein, which
would be odd, because I was daydreaming about how to live in such a
situation just a few minutes ago.

  Cute "steganography" by Spore.

  Can the cross product be generalized? Why are the trace and determinant
so important in matrix theory? What do all the coefficients of the
characteristic polynomial represent? This paper describes a technique
for `doodling' equations from linear algebra that offers elegant
solutions to all these questions.
  I admit this made little sense to me, but seemed cool anyway.

  An Amazonian language with only 300 speakers has no word to express the
concept of "one" or any other specific number, according to a new study
from an MIT-led team.
