I'm back in Miami, but very very tired. The conference was great fun, and I learned (and ate!) a lot, but the journey home was long. Got up early this morning (before the hotel was serving breakfast), drove from beautiful Santa Fe to Albuquerque, changed planes in Dallas, then finally got home around dinner time.
So here are short links to some blog stuff that hit my feed reader. Several deserve more reaction or praise, but I haven't the energy.

- Kevin Drum points to Gadflyer's Amy Sullivan, pointing to the US's leading political analyist noting that the CIA really is in trouble:

It's a sad day for America when even our paranoid schizophrenics realize they don't need to wear the alumnimum foil hats anymore.”
- Anti-mega gets a farewell t-shirt from his old job.
- My Scholarati standing is no great shakes.
- Kevin Werbach teams up with other wireless pioneers to lauch the Wireless Unleashed Blog.
- Stirling Newbury has a great graph and explainer that plausibly tells Why Bush Seemed Popular.
The Houston journal wants a final draft of the paper in two weeks, so I think I'll do fixing and tidying before posting anything. If anyone is really keen to have it now and will promise comments in exchange for an e-copy now, drop me a note.
