And it's a darn good looking coin at boot. How to make our queen look cool and apply some internet information on Dutch architects, rolling it up in a coin.
That's some awesome art, done with typography (fonts and such :)
A comic trying to make this odd concept a bit understandable
Those are... damn awesome! Be sure to click the link to the full article with more pics.
Wow, they sure saw it coming
Ghehe, I always get that feeling when watching an old-ish movie in which a cellphone would have really made a difference
Add in a low-power wifi mesh network and this could be a pretty rad new way of lighting our streets
It's an open-source clone of the well-known SPSS statistical tool. Be sure to skim the comments too: there are some interesting remarks on other tools and comparisons
Interesting read. See also the Slashdot posting on the letter.

Nice write-up about homebrew on the Wii, and why pirating doesn't have to do all that much with it
Digital technology has made it easy to create new works from existing art, but copyright law has yet to catch up.
There's a lot to say for fair use of material in mash-ups, new works, as inspiration for completely different material and such. Why stiffle innovation and creativity with stupid copyright laws?
Indian callcenters dealing with US debtors
Many European banks are larger than the Gross National Product of the country they are located
Unbelievably cool. And beautiful to boot.
Neat. Could quick-start me into finally doing something serious with Django
Of course there is an alternative; a popular computing platform whose design attracts universal admiration. But although we all look forward to literally punching in the numbers, the Wii does not yet quite hack it (use of a dread phrase coming up) 'in the enterprise'.
Some great points to keep in mind when writing an article
People shouting for ISP's to protect their pc's against spam, virusses and spyware should look at how they protect their property. It's them that expose themselves to a possibly not so friendly world. Better be prepared (and use some decent protection, or decent operating system for that matter).
Microsoft followed their annual major Tech-Ed event in Australia with a week-long programming contest called "DevSta," to find "star developers." While the quantity and quality of submissions suggest a poor turnout it certainly caught the attention of at least two hackers who left their mark.
With "hackers" stretching the term; it's just a bunch of defacers. Quite funny though :) Interesting that the whole event resulted in a big jawn ("It looks like I wasn’t the only one short on a great idea. The entries so far include not one, but two, calculators. Yawn. Another implements a secure recycle bin but I’m not so sure that really fits in with the competition theme. Others provide an old fashioned green screen terminal client interface for Twitter plus implementations of Pong and Missile Command."). Oh well, at least they got some publicity on Slashdot.
Like I said a long while ago, the Dutch passport (and similar implementations) are hacked before they've become useful (or even mainstream). Now it's even open source.
Someone else that also feels life goes by so damn fast. My studies have been almost-done for a year also. Oh well, it's getting there :)
