[I was wrong about veganism. Let them eat meat (but farm it right) | George Monbiot | Comment is free | The Guardian](http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/sep/06/meat-production-veganism-deforestation)
Thought-provoking review of a new book about the practicality of eating meat. The book’s author argues, and the pretty strongly vegan-leaning reviewer agrees, that meat can be farmed with a minimal or beneficial impact on the environment if the global agriculture system were to be heavily reformed.

Interesting collection of thoughts from Anil Dash on forking as a feature, and not the “nuclear option” of a f/oss community project.

Absolutely amazing walkthrough of a museum of Soviet Arcade Games outside of Moscow. This is too cool. Also cool is the Flickr set he links to at the bottom of the article.

[Walking in Midtown, without using avenues : The New Yorker](http://www.newyorker.com/talk/2010/09/13/100913ta_talk_friend)
Charming description of a trip through midtown without stepping foot on the avenues. (It’s an update on something John Updike once wrote about.) I think about this kind of thing all the time when walking in Manhattan.

[YouTube – Disney’s Blam – Up](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1rVF8Np4xw)
Spot-on parody of the really terrible “Blam!” thing Disney’s been doing, applying that treatment to the opening montage in “Up.” Watch for “INCONCEIVABLE!”
