Lazy Linking, 47th in an Occasional Series


Stuff I liked on the Internets:

47.1. Things you didn't know Twitter could do - it can help tell you how new movies will do and whether stock prices will go up or down.

47.2. Atoms, meet bits - text me a Pepsi.

47.3. Love AI's moxie in this history of the crossover dribble. [Hat tip: kottke.org.]

47.4. Funny how winning a championship changes our verdict on athletes' crunch time ability. [Hat tip: Marginal Revolution.]

47.5. "The Tipping Point" as the tipping point for book title convention?

47.6. Stair and ladder illusions in a Toronto subway station.

47.7. Big, gassy, and volatile; dark, foreboding, and pock-marked. No, I'm not talking about your in-laws, I'm talking about the sun and the moon.

47.8. Homer taught us poetry and literature. And Homer Simpson? How about economics?

47.9. Who ought we Americans look to as an example of a working democracy? David Brooks suggests those Brits whose monarchy we liberated ourselves from 235 years ago.

47.10. Symptomatic of our modern on-the-go ethos - "run" has replaced "set" as the verb with the most meanings.
