The "yes I was on the web over Easter" link selection

  • Statebook
    Excellent visualisation of what the government will do with all the data that's being gathered for various reasons. It's not the individual feeds that are directly a problem, it's their aggregation and triangulation.
  • The Beginner's Guide to Creating Virtual Machines with VirtualBox
    Pretty good introduction to virtualisation for Windows users. Especially good reason to use it: make a sandbox with a copy of Windows where you can try out programs without totaling your working setup.
  • Community Leadership Summit
    Funny, I was just discussing with a friend the idea of setting up a mailing list for recruiting community managers when this showed up in my mail from Jono. I plan to attend.
  • Turin Shroud 'could be genuine as carbon-dating was flawed'
    It makes no difference to Christianity or the faith of its adherents, but it's a fascinating story all the same.
Comments:

The Turin story is interesting, but the messages are confused. Rogers is quoted as saying that the shroud has a "very good chance of being the piece of cloth that was used to bury the historic Jesus.", yet from the actual facts reported in the story, it would be more accurate to say that the new evidence means that shroud has not be shown conclusively to be a fraud.

My understanding is that the shroud is not so much an article of faith but an aid to faith, meaning the visualisation (whether true or not) of Jesus may help some to relate to the Jesus narrative. The official stance is one of ambiguity best summarised as 'maybe, mnaybe not'.

The shroud of Turin. Evidence, perhaps, of Jesus' murderer. Are the threads still intact? Or are they disintegrating. This is real science-fiction stuff. Big Solaris in finding out the answer/truth. :)
