Wow, another roller coaster day. There's only one thing to do: Filter pass!
Leonard Nimoy hangs up his Spock. "'I want to get off the stage. Also, I don't think it would be fair to Zachary Quinto,' Nimoy told the Toronto Sun, referring to the actor who portrays young Spock in the new Trek film. 'He's a terrific actor, he looks the part, and it's time to give him some space. And I'm very flattered the character will continue.'" How classy is that? Live long and prosper...
The incredible xkcd with a circuit diagram... I love it!
In re ultracycling: That Which Does Not Kill Me Makes Me Stranger. Very interesting, the degree to which success in endurance events is mental rather than physical. I completely agree with this; when I failed to complete the Furnace Creek 508 last October, it was because my head said no, not my body. [ via Kottke ]
Wow, congratulations to Cadel Evans for winning the 2010 Fleche Wallonne. I'd kind of forgotten about Cadel, even though he's the current World Champion. He is a factor.
Dave Winer: Vector Awareness, day two. "I'm kind of disappointed that there wasn't much uptake on other blogs re what comes after location - but not really surprised." He's not surprised because he thinks people underreact to blog posts. I'm not surprised because his insight wasn't that earth-shattering :)
Amazing, Visa buys CyberSource for $2B. Shows how much of Visa's total business and mindshare is now occupied by online transactions.
If you've been tracking the whole iPhone 4.0 developer agreement 3.3.1 clause thing, this will not be a shock, but sadly: Adobe throws in the towel on Flash for iPhone. Essentially Apple has banned any applications from iDevices which were not written from scratch for iDevices, including especially anything written in Flash.
I’m just going to mention this because it is SO COOL and not because it is a solution; these guys were able to get Google’s Android running on an Apple iPhone! This is going down as one of the most amazing hacks of all time. They took a jailbroken iPhone (hacked to allow third party software) and then installed the Android OS. Amazing. Now track this… Android does not support Flash yet, but Google and Adobe have announced they are working together to make it so. Once they do, you could run Flash on an iPhone by jailbreaking it, installing Android, and then accessing websites from under Android. Something every user would know how to do :)
ZooBorn of the day: a baby Bushbaby.
