Here's an interesting article about photonic crystals, something that has great potential in the optical networking field.

Worried about privacy on the internet? Maybe you've got bigger problems that some company's privacy statements...

And a nice article about molecular manipulation.

Interested in the Bush and Gore tax plans? Check out this site. It includes a tax-savings calculator, so you can find out just how much of the proposed tax cuts you'll be able to get (I got a whopping $0 savings under the Gore plan).

And also a Cato Institute article about the current rash of wildfires in the US. Here's a quote from it: "As the Washington Times reported, officials have prevented bulldozers from building fire breaks because they might scar terrain (as if flames wouldn't).

Just found out today about an interesting Rasmussen poll that showed more voters are strongly libertarian than conservative or liberal. Note that this link is to the LP story, not to the poll itself, which doesn't seem to have come up on the website yet. I'll post a link there when I see it.
This is good news for Harry Browne, who's actually been beating Buchanan in the polls. Well, those that include Browne, anyway. This is in spite of Buchanan getting rather more than ten times the media coverage that Browne does (no joke; there's companies you can pay to track this stuff, and the LP has) and spent ten times as much money.
