Linkage (web variety)

I've probably mentioned to some of you the wikipedia article on the Heavy Metal Umlaut. I was told a couple of days ago that there's a short (8-minute, roughly) flash-animated documentary covering the evolution of the article. It's here.

While we're on the subject of the Wikipedia, it also has a page on the Flynn effect, which came up in one of yesterday's lectures. I've mentioned it to various people (usually when someone gets all Daily-Express about education) and it always seems like I'm the only person to have heard of it. So - read and be informed. Apparently Flynn himself doesn't believe in the straightforward explanation, but yesterday's final lecturer - Matt McGue, a psychologist from the University of Minnesota - reckons that there's probably a fair amount of the obvious going on. After all, we're getting taller, so why not cleverer?
I'll probably try to be there for about half-ten. Any requests? Has to be on CostlyDisk, I'm afraid.
I'll see how I feel later - I may be along. If I think of some requests I'll bring them with me!
Interesting. I was impressed at how quickly the vandalism was (repeatedly) removed. It's a shame they went to all that trouble to advertise that they suck cock, but forgot to give their contact details...
Hi there! I added you to my friends list, showing I'm interested in hearing what you have to say. I'm Jamie by the way, in case you couldn't figure out my rather cryptic user name.
