A links roundup for insufferable information gatherers:
Via Dan Weiss’s Morning Coffee at The Rumpus, news that we might have a cloned woolly mammoth in the near to not-so-near future (if an unethical geneticist completes the hairy project at hand). Sounds like competition to me, humans. Join me in opposing such research! I call for a protest march at once.
Then, on the Ploughshares blog (via The Review Review), Tim Ellison bemoans the superficiality and short attention spans of tweeters, readers, writers, bloggers, and anyone else who likes pictures. I agree with Ellison. You scallywags! Stop looking at the brilliant meme above! You will regret it, you rapscallions!
