+title: Weekly Link Roundup
+layout: post
+---
+
+[Details surface about Google's project Glass][1]. The future is now
+and all that. [Rainbows End][2] and [Daemon][3]/[Freedom™][4]
+are now required reading.
+
+I didn't realize when I first saw it but xkcd's April 1st comic was
+actually quite [brilliant][xkcd].
+
+Some [good advice on giving academic talks][talk] under the twin
+lenses of memory (your audience's resource — build context and
+be wary of details) and fear (your resource — desensitize and
+dissociate).
+
+An [interesting privacy hack][priv] for the web was announced and
+[kickstarted][privk].
+Amusingly enough they use Libya's [ccTLD][tld] ([.ir][ir] or [.eg][eg] would also have
+been apropos). Hopefully they've thought about domain seizures.
+
+And on a related note, [here's a good read on the internet wars][war].
+In particular the forces of order (SOPA/PIPA, Iran, China, Egypt,
+etc.) vs. the forces of chaos (Anonymous, LulzSec, etc.).
