Geek Quote of the Moment
"Quantum Mechanics: The Dreams of Which Stuff is Made"
--sig of ihatewinXP on Slashsdot. You have to know a bit about how weird and uncertain things get at the quantum level, relative to our mundane reality, to get the joke of it.

Dialog of the Moment
"I'm curious, is it strictly apathy, or do you really not have a goal in life?"
"I found that if you have a goal, that you might not reach it. But if you don't have one, then you are never disappointed. And I gotta tell ya... it feels phenomenal."
"Well I guess that makes sense, in a really sad way."

Link of the Moment
--An absolutely lovely idea... artist Seyed Alavi has this aerial river view woven into an airport walkway's rug. I wonder if it can give you a sense of vertigo? (via boingboing)

Tools Update of the Moment
