Still recovering from my mega-bonk...  Oh and by the way my deathmarch is over; I finally finished the code and checked it in Friday morning.  Whew.  Still more to do (always!), but I've relieved some pressure.

I am really tired; maybe it was the ongoing lack of sleep last week exacerbated by the pressure of the deathmarch that triggered the bonkage?

I still don't like the Facebook changes.  So there.  Dave Winer does, but I do not.  (He doesn't use Facebook, he is a Twitter guy...) 

Gerard Vanderleun thinks Twitter validates Sturgeon's Law (90% of everything is crap).  You must click through to see the picture; it's awesome.

Seems I was not alone in bonking today; Alberto Contador semi-bonked on the final climb of today's Paris-Nice stage and ceded three minutes to Luis Leon Sanchez, who is now leading the race.  The final stage is tomorrow...  

Fifteen microscopic images from inside the human body.  Wow, these are so cool, like the human egg cell at left. 

TTAC reviews the Maserati Gran Turismo S.  There are many reasons to like this car, but let's face it; it has you at hello.  Beautiful. 

BW reports on eBay's big plans for PayPal.  It took about two years for eBay to buy PayPal, and one of the reasons was because eBay didn't share PayPal's view of the huge strategic opportunity to displace credit cards as the payment instrument of choice on the web.  They're finally starting to see it; eight years after buying PayPal...  it seriously could end up bigger than eBay's auction business. 

Robert Scoble has landed; he's starting a new social networking site called Building 43, "a place for people fanatical about the Internet".  So be it. 

My friend Lil sent me this: an unbelievable juggling exhibition from Chris Bliss to the Beatles' Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight / The End medley.  Absolutely amazing!
