Folk I know

Welford Observatory - updates from Welford observatory including many good pics
Alec MacKinnon - academia done right

Things I like - the oldest surviving linux distro that I use day to day - the slackware forum is particularly friendly - I agree with much of what he says, and even when I don't, I like the way he says it
From our own correspondent - frustrated by regular news? Try this.
android - An open source OS that I use everyday.
