My wonderful wife, Patti Jackson, is opening a restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn tomorrow.
Delaware and Hudson features food from the Mid-Atlantic states. It’s a small, 38-seat restaurant. Patti will start by serving dinner and brunch. I encourage you all to check it out! You can also like Delaware and Hudson on Facebook or check Delaware and Hudson out on Yelp!
5th row center! With the President of Ireland!
There is a very funny post from Techdirt on the RIAA’s assertion that file sharing caused a decrease in record sales.
Popular Science had an interesting blog post on how the change in manufacturing of Pyrex made crack production more difficult:
When World Kitchen took over the Pyrex brand, it started making more products out of prestressed soda-lime glass instead of borosilicate. With pre-stressed, or tempered, glass, the surface is under compression from forces inside the glass. It is stronger than borosilicate glass, but when it’s heated, it still expands as much as ordinary glass does. It doesn’t shatter immediately, because the expansion first acts only to release some of the built-in stress. But only up to a point.
It’s an interesting story, and the video is pretty great.
