We knew he'd been nominated, but it turns out Senator Stephen Conroy has actually won the Internet Villain Award as handed out by the UK Internet Industry. Nice work, Senator! Stephen Conroy and the Australian Government - "For continuing to promote network-level blocking despite significant national and international opposition"

Jason pointed out that NASA are re-enacting Apollo 11 on a new website, We Choose The Moon. I seem to be having some Flash issues here, but hopefully I'll be able to check it out soon.

The 55W ACP Six-Core AMD Opteron HE processors are currently shipping for 2-, 4- and 8-P systems and available today in new systems from HP, addressing the needs of dynamic, performance hungry and power constrained data centers.
