The Weekly Top 5: September 5, 2008

There follows an arbitrary and partial list of the five most interesting things I came across on the Internet this week. It is neither voted for, crowdsourced, comprehensive nor exhaustive. I hope you enjoy it nonetheless. 

1. George Orwell’s diaries

A blog posting Orwell’s diary entries on the same calendar day. This is a similar idea to the Pepys blog, however, what makes it interesting to my mind is that they’re also plotting where he was on Google maps, which, to my mind at least, seems a little, well, Orwellian.  Big Brother it would seem is watching you even after you die.

2. Moviecharts

3. The Turkish Star Wars

A Turkish “remake” of Star Wars, including some special effects footage from the original. You get a bonus point if you watch the whole thing.

4. Lords of the Blog

Interesting title for the new House of Lords blogging experiment.

5.  Regarding the Nature of Luminance in Ubiquitous Darkness from Karen Abad loves Dinosaurs.

File under experimental.
