The Austin City Council might push for a November 2010 referendum on expanding passenger rail. This is fairly hilarious to me, since the "existing" passenger rail is over a year and a half late, and they still haven't set a start date on it. I'm a big supporter of passenger rail, but even I'm not sure I'd vote for more after the boondoggle it's become.

8 Great Gifts for Your Data Geek - hmm, I own one of these and at least one is on my Christmas list :-)

Good summary of the hacked climate change emails - yes, some bad things were done, but the evidence is still overwhelming.

The destinations in this proposed route (UT and the airport) make more sense for a first route than Leander does. Houston did rail fairly well by first connecting high-volume, close-distance areas, and then expanding to the suburbs later. Austin seems to have it backwards, and could use a giant "undo" button right about now.

I don't know what it is about Texans/Texas but we just cannot set up a decent mass transit system.
