Sunday with the NY Times in Woods Hole

It was an eleven hour haul up interstate 95 yesterday–just lots of traffic. We did one interesting less well-known detour heading north at New Haven to Hartford before heading east again on ancient US Route 6 to Providence. That should give you an idea of what the main US east-coast north-south artery was like.

Here for your reading are two entirely enjoyable pieces from today’s Sunday NY Times. The first is Mary Roach’s wonderful review of Bill Streever’s new popular science book Cold.
The second is John Markoff’s piece on extremely strong AI (think HAL).
