Ryan Britt (at OMNI Reboot): «Thinking about things outside of their regular context might be a lazy definition of sci-fi, but it isn’t wrong.»

Had this sent to me around the same time that [this other (derived?) image](http://dirkloechel.deviantart.com/art/Size-Comparison-Science-Fiction-spaceships-398790051) was making the rounds. Russell's site is missing my personal favorites (the ships of the Wing Commander universe) but it's an impressive collection nontheless.

Populat Science: «A politically motivated, decades-long war on expertise has eroded the popular consensus on a wide variety of scientifically validated topics. Everything, from evolution to the origins of climate change, is mistakenly up for grabs again. Scientific certainty is just another thing for two people to "debate" on television. And because comments sections tend to be a grotesque reflection of the media culture surrounding them, the cynical work of undermining bedrock scientific doctrine is now being done beneath our own stories, within a website devoted to championing science.» Sad in so many ways.

Bret Victor. Lots of choice bits: «There can be a lot of resistance to new ways of working that require you to unlearn what you've already learned and think in new ways.» And: «The most dangerous thought that you can have as a creative person, is to think you know what you're doing.» Watch it. Best 30 minutes you'll spend this week.

Interesting puzzler of a post by Seth Shostak, writing for The Crux (a Discovermagazine.com blog): «So it seems that alien SETI researchers—the Klingons and Vulcans and whoever else is out there—could have spun their telescopes in our direction for billions of years without getting any signal (no intelligent life indeed). Yes, they might know that Earth was a kind and gentle world, blessed by air and oceans. And yes, they might have detected the oxygen in our atmosphere, and concluded that our planet has life. But _intelligent_ life? They wouldn’t know, unless they’ve been monitoring the Earth very, very recently.» Having read Alastair Reynolds _Revelation Space_ pretty recently, I must admit to some shuddering grins.

Edited by Alex Dally MacFarlane. Looks like a pretty fantastic anthology--it contains quite a few pieces that I've read before and enjoyed very much. I'm looking forward to this one.

A phenomenal gender-bending story by Charlie Jane Anders at Lightspeed Magazine. She's one of my favorite contributors at io9 (when I have favorites at io9) and now I have a favorite short story by her.

Clara Moskowitz, writing at Space.com: «The only problem is, previous studies estimated the warp drive would require a minimum amount of energy about equal to the mass-energy of the planet Jupiter.»

Great list posted over at Wondermark. (Via... Prismatic? @fogus? All of the above? *None* of the above?) Some familiar titles in there, and some others I've never heard of. Either way: "As if my to-read list weren't long enough..."
