A quick roundup of some interesting CS related stuff from the last few weeks:
- Computational Complexity is back! Now instead of Lance Fortnow blogging it's Bill Gasarch. Welcome to the blogosphere, Bill.
- From the ScobleShow, a very interesting interview with software engineer, blogger and author Joel Spolsky. A really like his anthropological take on what it means to engineer good systems. Highly recommended, as is Spolsky's blog.
- The biblioblogosphere had some talk about heroes a few weeks back, and since my last here was Jean Beliveau, I didn't feel I had anything to contribute. But at around the same time, there were a few really interesting posts in the CS blogosphere about popularity and other such things that I think are worth reading: Ed Yourdon on Why We Are Blogging, riebecca On Popularity and Eugene Wallingford on Science Superstars for an Unscientific Audience.
- A couple of very fun (and very pointed) items from Jonathan Shewchuk, both of which may eventually get posts of their own. But for now: Giving an Academic Talk and Three Sins of Authors in Computer Science and Math. Why isn't this man blogging? He's a natural. And a Canuck to boot! via Pharyngula
