Whole lotta links

I have nothing to say except more whining about ears, so have some links instead, so I can shut down some tabs.



Phew.

Edited to change icon - thanks to sovietkiki!

Viacom only gets anonymized data from Google about YouTube viewing habits. Hurray.

I'd like to take credit for this, but it was done without my involvement. O_O

Maybe it means they'll only get data ABOUT YOU. Zomg.

Kids who use text speak are more literate than those who don't

Just cos you don't understand it :p (Neither do I, mostly, but I'm willing to believe the people they're mostly writing to do. Probably. Bit inefficient otherwise.)

No, no. "Literate" is not a word I would use to describe FM. "More literate than those..." is straight out.

Ah, I didn't realise you were talking about FM - I think the article is mostly talking about schoolkids up to the age of about 14 :D Adults who still do it...not so much.

Ahhh, then, yes, I withdraw my disagreement pending further relevant data. :D

I think the Who Prom probably will be televised, and have also seen rumours that there is a special mini-episode to be broadcast during the interval...

I'm not the biggest fan of Stephen Pinker but I may adopt this line.

"If I call myself a psychologist people immediately think of a psychotherapist, but if I call myself a cognitive scientist at least no one knows what the hell that is. "

I've got a soft spot for Pinker because The Language Instinct was one of the first academic books that I read for fun. It's probably his fault I have a large bookcase full of books about language. And yeah, I loved that quote too, heh.

Joss' "Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" is hilarious!

Sadly, it only seems to be available on US iTunes so far.

If they get the servers back up, look out tomorrow for the second episode, and on Saturday for the third and final one. It's only going to be streaming until the end of the month.

It's difficult to say how great it is without spoilers, but Nathan Fillion's character may just be the one he was born to play. ;o)

I saw it on YouTube last night, and the site is working today so I'm watching it again. HEE.
