About Me

Tech journalist since the dark ages. Windows Secrets, LangaList newsletter, Windows Magazine (NetGuide, Home PC), Byte, Popular Computing, yadda yadda yadda. Google me, if it matters.

This feed is mostly personal interest; it's NOT my professional writing. There's tech here, yes, but also lots of general science and some politics and weird humor thrown in.

Until last week, never seen by human eyes:

Last week, the Mars Science Lab's rover, Curiosity, photographed the planet Mercury transiting the face of the Sun.



This is the first transit of the sun by a planet observed from any planet other than Earth, and also the first imaging of Mercury from Mars.
