> Fermi and Frost by Pohl (Hugo short story 1985)
> We hobbits are a merry folk by David Brin
> Fellowship of the ring commentary (Part I and Part II) by Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn
> Cats can has grammar [lingua franca lolcats]
> Martin Luther King quote that flashes before wikileaks.org is loaded can be found here.
> The semi-colon was finally given it’s due.
> Cold boot attacks disk encryption!
