Friday Links!

From Paul Adams, and this is excellent: Lars Anderson Discovers Japan.

From Wally, and this is amazing: Long Live Gopher: The Techies Keeping the Text-Driven Internet Alive. Also, and this is quite funny, it's Tolkien’s Map and The Messed Up Mountains of Middle-earth. This is a fantastic read: How a board game company defined video game ads for 20 years. This is very cool: Sir Peter Jackson’s studio reveals augmented reality demo.

From Griffin Cheng, and this is fascinating (and long): SIR JOSEPH BAZALGETTE and LONDON’S INTERCEPTING SEWER SYSTEM. Also, and this is both amazing and somehow terrifying, it's Unbelievable Speed Of Chinese Models Stuns Photographers Around The World. This sounds like a movie: British caterpillars are being killed by a rare 'zombie' virus. This is both bizarre and very cool: The Unique Marvels Of Croatia’s Underwater Park.

From C. Lee, and this is a terrific read: The Loyal Engineers Steering NASA’s Voyager Probes Across the Universe. This is stunning: South Korea spy agency admits trying to rig 2012 presidential election. This is surprisingly poignant and personal: Jon Ronson on bespoke p***: ‘Nothing is too weird. We consider all requests’. This is absolutely incredible: The best way to fix broken bones might be with glass. This is a fascinating story about automation and the labor market: Rise of the machines.

From Steven Davis, and this is amazing: How to Build Amazing Balancing Bridge out of Coins Without Glue.
