It's officially March, which means my basketball obsession kicks into high gear. As if you hadn't noticed from the last week or so of posts...
Anyway, it's clear from the lack of comments that my basketball obsession is not that widely shared, so here are some links to amuse the rest of you while I go hoops-wacky:
- The March Physics World is out, featuring a very nice article on commerical quantum cryptography, and a blog profile of Tommaso Dorigo.
- Speaking of quantum stuff, Scott Aaronson explains Shor's algorithm, with not a single state vector to be seen.
- If you've been saying to yourself "You know, what the world needs is more weblogs featuring highly technical discussions of particle theory," then Resonaances is a dream come true.
- In the "There's a carnival for everything" file: the carnival of post-docs, Oscar style.
- If you'd like some rabble-rousing politics, Gizmodo is calling for a boycott of the RIAA. If you think it will help, by all means, boycott the RIAA.
- The Boring Store, profiled in great detail. With pictures.
- Finally, Overheard in New York explains the whole Pluto thing. I wish.
There. That ought to hold you for a while.
