Why NYC's Iconic Pizza Is So Tough To Replicate found on kottke. Seriously, there is no good pizza in San Francisco. Whenever I go to NY I manage to get at least one slice of pizza from a random shop, and it's better than any pizza I've ever had in California.

If you think you know, please leave me a comment. You should know that I have been to Delfina, Arinell's, Little Star, and A16. (SF does make a god damn good burger though.)

This is my philosphy. I don't have much more to add to it. Buzz has a bit more to say on it so I'll just link there.

Kevin Burton noticed a few stories in recent weeks about objects or places being preserved naturally.

Be sure and click through on the Shackleton story, the comments are just classic Internet silliness.

The Droste Effect is when a package contains a photo of the package. It goes without saying that this sort of thing is the sort of thing I like.

What an eventful week! I feel like talking about it.

First the torch thing here in SF. Two interesting things came out of that: my Twitter friends who were near the torch kept me updated throughout the day on what was going on, and second, Greg Knauss summed it up nicely.

Then there's Flickr video! What a bunch of hoo-ha about nothing. It seems a large group of people think Flickr is going to turn into YouTube—whatever that means. Anyway, here is why Flickr is no YouTube. Eleanor is easily the face that sold a thousand Flips (mine arrives today!).

Per my New Year's Resolution: I still haven't bought a single book. I only bought one CD in an emergency situation where I had to drive 600 miles and forgot to burn a CD-R. No DVDs. No video games.

I want this device but for code. No network, no frills, just gcc or python or ruby and an intuitive editor.

Seriously, this product would sell at least 50 devices.

Here's a microsite for a graphic novel about Laika the first animal in space. Definitely going to buy this one.

It's always so hard to know if a comic book (hate that term graphic novel, it's worse than "adult motel") is right for me, I usually just flip through it real fast to make sure I'm buying something I want to look at for a hundred pages. I can't read the dialog because it usually gives something away, so it's almost always a guess—which is part of the fun, I think.

A new comic book store opened up near our apartment called Neon Monster. It's good.
