Have you been reading Strong Female Protagonist? Today’s panel has a great one-liner about superpowers that highlights just how much handwaving we usually do for them, even accepting their existence. But start from the beginning!  It's really good.

Holmes and con games )

John G. Sprankling, Property Law Simulations: What it says on the tin—short explanations of various bits of property law, plus problems to work through, usually in the context of a negotiation. Interesting scenarios!

Ben Horowitz, The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Advice about how to run a successful business from a venture capitalist. Kind of interesting just to get his worldview, which includes a fair amount of advice about transitioning from small to big, and occasionally about firing the people who worked well for a smaller firm and not so well for a bigger firm. He’s a big proponent of committing to a strategy, even if it means a complete reorientation and getting rid of people who did a lot for the old version of the firm.

Rabin's assassination, Montgomery bus boycott, history of Rome )
Signal boost: New York’s Museum of the Moving Image is hosting a special exhibit, Cut Up,  which "celebrates the practice of re-editing popular media to create new work, presenting contemporary videos by self-taught editors and emerging artists alongside landmarks of historic and genre-defining reappropriation." They’re showing, among other things, [personal profile] laurashapiro’s I Put You There, along with Kandy Fong's Both Sides Now and Vogue!

The criminal NSA: why this pervasive surveillance is illegal and unconstitutional.

Wi-vi: use a cellphone to see through walls.  At least it creates fic possibilities?

Free to good fannish home: 20-year anniversary edition of Heathers.  Let me know in comments.

Chinese fanworks based on an English textbook from the 80s:  “Li Lei and Han Meimei started to rise as icons of the post-80s collective memory because many found out that they’ve all imaged a love affair between Li and Han during those young and care-free years, when they themselves were told not to touch young love and focus on studies. Fabricated stories and comics started to circulate online …” I love the double meaning of “fabricated.”
Stephen King, K.J. Parker, Malinda Lo, Carol Berg )

Eureka: Spoilers are still in the Matrix )

A Softer World: this could work for so many of my fandoms!

Rec: Pairing Pendragon/Merlin: Meta, really, in which BBC Merlin characters are Starz Camelot fans. I have rarely felt more directly hailed by a text! (As Sady Doyle once said, this must be what guys feel like all the time.) The embarrassing stuff is there, along with the love.

Interesting article on Foreign Policy’s gender issue (pun, sadly, intended).

space opera and Stephen King's daddy issues )

Pro tip: when in the course of work you have to Google for images of the Naked Cowgirl, remember that you have SafeSearch turned off.

Unlikely but true: Jensen Ackles is prettier in HD. Still getting used to the color differences from my old TV, but really glad to see the full screen.

Interesting video from Kink for all, where participants talk fanfic.

I also wrote a little something:
Five More Deaths That Didn’t Matter, PG/gore
Prompt: [personal profile] later_tuesday, 5 deaths Dean had during Mystery Spot (that weren't aired)

I blame jetlag for my fight with the LJ posting interface just now, anyway.  On my United flight out to San Francisco, they tried to serve me Diet Coke Light (labelled in Italian). Betrayed! I even popped the first can and took a sip before I realized; the taste brought me right around. I know most people don’t taste much of a difference between the brands/sugar substitutes, but unless it’s Diet Coke with aspartame I’m not drinking it.

Stephen King, Megan Whalen Turner, Camille Bacon-Smith )
