Another great-looking anthology compiled and edited by John Joseph Adams. Plus a few free samples up on the site.
via B² — I tend to like Bacigalupe's work. Check this out if you haven't already.
The March employment numbers, out this morning, are bleak: 8.5 percent of Americans officially unemployed, 663,000 more jobs lost. But if you include people who are out of work and have given up trying to find a job, the real unemployment rate is 9 percent. And if you include people working part time who'd rather be working full time, it's now up to 15.6 percent. One in every six workers in America is now either unemployed or underemployed.
Glad he brings up these other numbers. I'm sure there are a few more percentage points hidden away in there, as well.
I've always wanted an accessory like this for my car. Since I drive a Rabbit, could I get some Jackalope horns maybe?

I’ve been using Scala for about 6 months at work. It’s a beautiful language and integrates with Java seamlessly. However, as with any typical language “debate”, the Rails/Scala debate that’s sprung up recently is a farce.
@fogus— I’m not arguing that the “debate” is anything *but* a farce. Just found the interview to be an interesting read. I’m interested in learning a little bit more about Scala and (having been following your recent posts) I thought you might be interested as well. 🙂
Without question, I am interested, but the signal to noise ratio is way off in that debate. I’ve found that the real nuggets of information are coming from James Ivy, MacIver, Obie Fernandez, al3x, Ola Bini, and Tony Arcieri. Almost everyone else is full of crap.
