Why I won’t be using Google In January — Medium
The story's all over the Internet— and if you’re the type of person to read a Medium article explaining why someone’s boycotting Google, you’re probably already familiar with it. The gist is as follows: RapGenius offers incentives to blog-posters to add links about Justin Bieber to their blogs- which increases RG’s link relevancy piloting them to the top of Google Search Queries. Google gets mad — and ‘punishes’ (read: fatally attacks) them by knocking all RapGenius links into siberia.

Top Science Longreads of 2013 – Phenomena: Not Exactly Rocket Science

The making of…Dune II | Features | Edge Online
It is rare indeed for a single game to become the progenitor of an entire new genre. Although it had its precedents, with some fans attempting to retcon a gaggle of faintly similar 8bit titles for the role, the world’s first realtime strategy game can be named with little real controversy. But going back to Dune II today is an eye-opening experience, as it becomes clear how very little the genre has moved forwards – like finding out Halo had really been released in 1982. The same basic viewpoint, interface, controls and gameplay underpinning Dune II are still being reused today, with only the most minimal level of evolutionary advancement.

Using Computer Modern on the web
The cm-unicode project compiles versions of the Computer Modern fonts in a few formats, including TTF. I've run them through codeandmore's @font-face kit generator and FontSquirrel to get all the weird formats that the various browsers insist on. This page shows off each typeface, with links to packages containing everything you need to use them in your own pages.
