  • NoteSlate /// intuitively simple monochrome paper alike tablet device
    "NoteSlate is low cost tablet device with true one colour display, real paper look design, long life battery (180h !), together with very handy usage and very simple and helpful interface for pen and paper. This easy, compact and portable gadget is used anywhere you want to make any notes, drafts, sketches, any ideas for future reference. Paper for everyone! Write a note and check it later, save it, or delete it. Maybe send it after. Just one colour is enough to express the basics. Keep your life simple. You will love it. For $99." Five space dollars says this thing will never be made. Shame.

  • Novels I will not write: Jesus wants his kidney back – Charlie’s Diary
    "What about the status of donor organs from other beatified/canonized persons? Especially in light of the Catholic Church's recent trend towards creating new saints much faster than the historic norm." Charlie Stross always wins

  • Matt Webb speaking in February about the future, robots, and artificial intelligence – Blog – BERG
    "Ben Hammersley is curating a series of three lectures at the Royal Institute of Great Britain during February. The RI is a 200-year-old research and public lecture organisation for science. Much of Faraday’s work on electricity was done there. One of the lectures is with me!"

NoteSlate looks like it'd solve my "buy $100 worth of single-subject notebooks every year and get confused in a month" problem pretty handily. Have you looked into the ASUS Note
, by any chance? It looks like it's got the basic function with more features, and I've had good luck with the ASUS Eee as a fuck-around, do-the-thing netbook. Not sure whether more features are a good thing, though.

Of course, it's moot if the NoteSlate remains as vaporish as it sounds.
