1. Connecticut Champions Again

    Back to back, the Connecticut Huskies have captured another NCAA Women's Basketball National Championship. After graduating one of the best recruiting classes in women's basketball history last year (including the 1st, 2nd and 4th picks in the WNBA draft), UConn has captured its fourth national championship in a rebuilding year. Interestingly, both the Women's and Men's champions this year hail from the Big East conference, and both did so starting many freshman. The Huskies didn't even have a senior on their roster.

    UConn also had someone named Diana Taurasi, who I will now say is (or perhaps, is going to be) the best female basketball player of all time. She is the future of women's basketball. Why? It may sound a little sexist, but frankly, because she's the first woman who plays like a man. She's easily as good as, say, Tyronn Lue. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of great women's players (Sue Bird, Chamique Holdsclaw, Sheryl Swoops, Lisa Lesile) but I think Taurasi is the first who would make an NBA squad.

  2. Digital Music Files

    iPod Lounge has an article defining and reviewing the different formats vying to be the heir to the MP3 "digital-music-on-personal-computers-etc." throne. MP3 is nearing 20 years old, and is limited by its age. Formats like AAC (AAC on Apple), Ogg and others vie to be the next generation de facto standard. Personally, I'm hoping for both AAC (licensed) and Ogg (open source) to succeed.

  3. Fusion Pictures

    This isn't a picture of fusion. However, it is a picture of a device that Sandia National Laboratories is using to work on fusion, and it's pretty damn cool. (via Slashdot | article)
