HWR - 3

It was an emotionally turbo-charged week. I am out of IIT Roorkee...

(I'll write a post on it some time)

This week's round-up has variety and I hope you like the links. As usual, please comment and disagree:
  1. Neil Gaiman gave a commencement speech at The University of the Arts. Really inspirational stuff.
  2. A highly readable short piece on how minor and generally insignificant research is excitedly taken up by the media and grotesquely misrepresented.
  3. Facebook has been lambasted too many times in the past 10 days and I thought I'd post this article on how it threatens to take down most of the net based companies as well.
  4. I've shown this link to several friends but for those of you who have missed it, take a look at Darth L. Jackson.
That's all for this edition of HWR. 

P.S. My companions at my Alma Mater are sorely missed.

Update: The Neil Gaiman Vimeo link has been causing problems for a lot of people. You can watch it on Youtube.
