- Seeing Science Through Fiction: A talk with Neal Stephenson, Lee Smolin and Jaron Lanier at the Quantum to Cosmos festival. They talk about lots of interesting stuff. Also of note is a panel discussion featuring the same folks and more, though that one isn't as interesting (and is preceded by some awful babbling). In other Stephenson news, he does have a book coming out... in 2011. It's supposed to be titled REAMDE, though no one seems to know what it will be about (there is speculation that it might have something to do with deliberately mispelling "readme", a commom filename).
- The Netherbeast of Berm-Tech Industries, Inc.: In this world of vampires and werewolves, you can never be too careful. This video is pretty awesome, and I'd wager that it's probably a lot better than New Moon! (via Hey! Look Behind You!)
- The Legend of Neil: So this is pretty old, but I just found it. It's about Neil, who was playing Zelda and accidentally got transported into the game. Moral of the story, don't drink and play Zelda. It's pretty funny, with lots of in-jokes and dirty humor.
- Johnnie Walker - The Man Who Walked Around The World: For a commercial, this is pretty amazingly well done. It helps that you have an actor like Robert Carlyle, but I wonder how many takes it took (or if there were any cheats)...
