Multics Emulated, Physics Explained, DRM Vilified, and Lisp in Convenient Notebook Form
- Running Multics on the DPS8M Emulator — how-to guide that’ll let you experience 1965 tech. I love that there’s a new release of Multics (fore-runner of Unix) decades after the last hardware capable of running it died. (via Slashdot)
- The Mechanical Universe (YouTube) — a critically acclaimed series of 52 30-minute videos covering the basic topics of an introductory university physics course. So, like a MOOC or Khan Academy, but from 1985. (via Caltech)
- DRM is Toxic to Culture — can’t be said enough. Technology-enforced restrictions quantize and prejudge discretion.
- Darkmatter — The notebook-style Common Lisp environment.
