Linkology: The Best of the Internet for 7/16/10

Did you have time this week to find the very best things on the Internet?  No?  Well neither did I, so I proffer to you this fine quasi-rushed collection of various links below in the hopes that one of them makes your weekend.  Is that a stretch?  Yeah, probably.  Nonetheless, here goes:

Sitting is really bad for you.  This is why more and more progressive offices are moving to a stand-up arrangement for the majority of tasks.

Ed Dale on the iPhone 4 hysteria.  Even with the reception weirdness — which somehow isn’t as bad as it was when I first got it — it’s the best app phone I’ve ever used.

ArsTechnica on how scientists avoid confirmation bias.

I recently re-read The Road and cannot recommend this book more.  It’s dark, bleak and dystopian, but it’s ultimately a meditation on hope and the dedication of love.  It’s not a book you will be able to say you enjoy (even though, at times, the prose approaches poetry), but it’s a story that will stay with you for a long, long time.  Very much warrants multiple readings.

The Market Confidence Bugaboo: Project Syndicate’s Dani Rodrick explains why creating economic policy around apparently-improving market confidence is a fool’s errand.

A collection of truly awful stock photography.

Looking for something other than the standard hamburger?  If so, try the Slavonian burger.  I know I will.

BBC News: Plants ‘can think and remember.’

Finally, probably the most impressive basketball trick shot I’ve ever seen.  And it’s real.

Have a good weekend, everyone.
