RIP Majel Barrett Roddenberry. The first lady of Star Trek has died of leukemia at 76.
SyFy Portal has a 10 Best Sci-Fi TV episodes of 2008. I actually agree with several of these, but I haven't sat down and thought about what my list would be yet (that time usually comes before award nominations are due, not at the end of the year).
Jane Espenson (writer & producer for Buffy, BSG, etc.) is planning to write a 5-issue comic book series focused on Oz from Buffy.
Weburbanist has a list of 15 Geeky Gadgets (some are real and some appear to be artist concepts). A couple of these are great (as well as funny).
A working reproduction of a 2,100 year old astronomical device (dubbed the "first computer") has been unveiled and demonstrated. Sources: Network World (via Slashdot) and Tor.com (with link to Wired).
1,000 new (or previously thought to be extinct) species have been discovered in Vietnam.
Bruce Campbell has directed and starred in a self-referential spoof, and now wishes the name of his character was changed to avoid confusion about reality.
There is nothing on TV tonight. Time to catch up on the stuff piling up on the DVR.
