Friday Links!

Leading off from Paul Draper, and what a bizarre, nightmarish story: How an internet mapping glitch turned a random Kansas farm into a digital hell.

From Steven Davis, and these are sensational photographs: Professional Women's Wrestling in Japan. Next, and this is a terrific read, it's The Golden State Warriors Have Revolutionized Basketball. Next, and definitely belonging in the "alarming" category, it's Spies in the Skies. This is pretty mesmerizing: The History of the Romans: Every Year. This is an excellent read: THE SECRET RULES OF THE INTERNET: The murky history of moderation, and how it’s shaping the future of free speech. Here's something quite remarkable: A Vault of Color: A Peek Inside Harvard’s Collection of 2,500 Pigments.

From Ken P., and I have to think this is one of the most clever and strangest uses of technology ever: This Mattress Will Tell You if You’re Being Cheated On. Also, and this is fascinating, it's THE MINECRAFT GENERATION: How a clunky Swedish computer game is teaching millions of children to master the digital world.

From C. Lee, and this looks pretty amazing: Microsoft may be working on a flexible phone case that does more than just protect.

From David, and this is a strange, strange story: Turtle Smuggling case in Michigan court. And the update: Man caught with 51 turtles in his trousers sentenced to 5 years in prison.

From Wally, and this is beautiful: Inuit Cartography. Next, and this is quite interesting, it's Technical jargon failure modes. Next, and what a headline, it's This rare Maine bottle of bird poop is on display at the Smithsonian.
