Stargate Atlantis will end with this season (5th) and continue as movies.

Hayao Miyazaki (Howl's Moving Castle, Princesss Mononoke, Spirited Away, etc.) has a new movie, "Ponyo on the Cliff," which is getting raves in Japan. It sounds like a variation on The Little Mermaid. I wonder when we'll get a chance to see it here.

The Australian Museum Eureka Prize for scientific research has been awarded to a PhD student who found a way to make solar cells cheaply in a pizza oven.

Dave Langford has published his Top 20 SF books (although he cheated and also included other "Top" lists in boxes).

F&SF has a discussion about online short fiction.

InfoWorld has an article claiming that the standardization of JavaScript was a mistake. I'm not sure if I agree, but it was interesting.

DVRs for tonight:
Burn Notice
