The new York Times is changing its online access model. People will now be able to access up to 20 articles per month via their computer for free. They will also be able to access the day’s top stories via their smart phones for free.

So I am moving my favorites list from my smart phone to this webpage so I can easily access them via a computer. You will find these to be an eclectic mix. Some are for myself, some are for my wife, and some are for my children. I hope you enjoy them.

Japan’s Nuclear Incidents March 15, 2011

After reading Robert X. Cringely’s “Is anything nuclear ever really super safe small and simple?“, I have a question that I’ve not seen asked anywhere. Filling the coolant system with seawater must be like using seawater in your steam iron. Yeah, it’s going to corrode things to the point of never-be-used-again, but it seems to me that there’s a shorter term problem. As all the water is boiled away and/or split into free atoms, you’re going to have lots of salt left over accumulating in the reactor, and eventually preventing the free flow of water. You saidin the previous column that it should take a week for the reactor to cool down, so maybe it’ll be ok, but I’m still wondering.
