What I liked in Wired Sept 2006

ArXiv and PLoS are growing as the way scientists share knowledge.

Digital Cameras: They recommend Casio EX-Z600 ($279), Canon Powershot SD600 ($350) and more.  All have 6MP and great specs, including min 800ISO sensitivity.

Hospital-grade air filters can clean your air for about $500.

See John Maeda's book The Laws of Simplicity for UI and design hints.

Lessig's column tells about new opensource-inspired business models. See (for videos, with ads inserted automatically),, Eric von Hippel's book Democratizing Innovation.

Netflix has a production company Red Envelope that secures distribution rights for overlooked DVDs, and turns them into money through its recommendation engine finding viewers.

Charles Mann (the 1491 author) writes about the splog industry.
