When Kevin Lynch starts a blog, it looks like this. When others do, it's in fits and starts, and looks like it. Nevertheless, blosxom is very simple to set up, and its author, Rael Dornfest, is more than helpful if there is the least bit of difficulty.

Columbia seems to be getting short shrift in the backdrop of war, though much information is coming out as to the technical cause of failure. Carl T. Hall on page one in today's San Francisco Chronicle discusses the "zipper effect." Another article discusses the possibility of tiles being thrown off in descent over California. Another story by Keay Davidson considers the added danger of nuclearized vehicles. Ranting and Roaring has a wide variety of information, some that turns out to be inaccurate during breaking news, and a balanced editorial posted today.
...From now on the emphasis inside and outside the Agency will be on finding a safer cheaper method of getting into space. This is not something which 'needs' to be done, it is something which "has" to be done if disasters similar to the Columbia and Challenger events are to be avoided.


Considering impact of operations research on big engineering problems, and not so big, such as shortest path fun from INFORMS OR/MS Resource Collection: Computer Programs : Java Programs.

Long list of cryptic messages about completeness in Krishnamurti. Example.

Using "Shuttle Lost" as a possible source of insight...

When consider completeness, and simplicity of ordinary logic, start simply with symbolic logic. Once this is right, proceed. How close is this to experience of correctness in scripting, programming, ordinary language and other creations?

Timothy Bovee in a comment on Joi Ito as below, 7:08 PM post, mentions a heroic poem in memoriam of Columbia's Seven by William Brendan McPhillips. Yes, it's worth reading and rereading.

Diversions.
1. Boston pit, while it lasts. Telephone concerto.

2. Japanese emoticons.

Looking to the brilliant blogspace of Joi Ito for comment on how best to proceed with manned space program.

Looking for areas of programmatic improvement like this excellent collection of posts on Rand Simberg, Transterrestrial Musings, courtesy Ranting and Roaring in Janes' Blogosphere. Under truly comprehensive contingency plan, catastrophic failure under normal operation stops.
