Friday Links!

Leading off this week, from Matthew Teets, and it's fascinating: Did Medieval people walk the way we do?

From Wally, and this is an interesting read: Benedict Arnold: The Hero Before the Traitor. Not good at all: The deadly germ warfare island abandoned by the Soviets. This is quite an interesting read: THE LEGEND OF THE PRIVATEER AIRSHIP AND THE CURRENTS THAT LIFTED IT. Well, the title is in ALL CAPS, so it must be good. This is a long and absolutely fascinating read: How Hot Chicken Really Happened.

A slew of links from C. Lee, presented in two parts:
Stereographs Were the Original Virtual Reality
The Secret History of Dune
No business, no boozing, no casual sex: when Togo turned off the internet
The Unexpected Way That Bollywood Could Help Millions
4 lessons for modern software developers from 1970s mainframe programming

Part two, and since the U.S. is basically one giant PUBG mod now, this seems topical: One Man’s Journey From Welfare to World’s Hottest Video Game. Next, an excellent read: The Coming Software Apocalypse. This is terribly sad: Once Trapped in Korea, Puerto Rican Vets Now Face Battle At Home.
