The fashionable thing to do these days would probably be to write a graphic novel based on the epistolary contacts of the Huygens family. Heck, I'd read it. But Lisa Jardine shows that just plain good writing is more than enough to keep you glued to the pages in this page-turner essay collection about archival science. Yes, you read that right, and no, there's no irony hidden between the lines. Download the open-access book right now (clickety-click) and read chapter 3: "Never Trust a Pirate: Christiaan Huygens's Longitude Clocks." You can thank me later.[...]

I liked the cinema concept I saw in Beijing. Instead of the regular multiplex with maybe a dozen or half-dozen screens playing a dozen or half-dozen current movies of marginal interest, it had a number of VIP-like rooms with a varying number of comfortable chairs (range 2-12), and you could pick from a couple hundred movies, mostly old (and, I suspect, unpaid for) with a home cinema setup.
Russian Roulette by Michael Isikoff and David Corn is a very good read, if you are interested in how global diplomacy works.
