  1. More than a million

    Some bits from a review of a book about Henry Wellcome’s huge collection of objects.

  1. Can Science Explain Religion? | The New York Review of Books

    I remember finding this interesting when I read it, but was offline at the time. Similarities and things between the major religions.

  2. The Design of Understanding

    This looks like it’ll be good, Max Gadney’s one-day conference at St Bride Library in 2011 about “how ideas are designed to be more understandable”.

  3. Home - ExtensionFM

    This is rather slick — a Google Chrome extension that makes a nice iTunes-style library of MP3s on web pages you visit. (via Yoz)

  4. LRB · Christopher Turner · Missionary Work

    On Henry Wellcome’s amazingly vast collection of stuff from around the world, most of which was sold off in the mid-20th century. Huge.
