- Is Sugar Toxic? is a very long article in the NYTimes magazine. The title is sensationalistic, but the evidence is kind of scary. On the other hand, what foods are worst for us seems to change every year, and it's hard to keep up.

- Speaking of the NYTimes, since moving to a paywall they've gotten 100K digital subscribers, which is pretty good. Although the first four weeks were discounted to 99 cents - we'll have to see what happens when it's time to renew. (disclaimer: I subscribed and am thinking of continuing)

- More NYTimes fun: a project called Cascade for tracking the sharing of stories on the web. Unfortunately they just have videos up (and no live demo) but it looks pretty neat!

- Nintendo pre-announces its followup to the Wii, meaning they said they'll announce it at E3 in June and it will ship next year.

- Is Garfield Dead? - I remember reading these strips as a kid (in a book) and being kinda freaked out.


Comment from andrewhime:

One advantage to the Pre: they won't update the NYTimes client, so we get to drink from the firehose for free! :)

Comment from gregstoll:

Haha, good point!

Comment from flamingophoenix:

Boo, paywall. Is it about refined sugar?

Comment from gregstoll:

Yeah, basically. I tweeted about it here, just for you so you can follow the link and defeat the porous paywall :-)
