I find this bookmarklet very useful when sending people links to emc documentation and the wiki, because there are often more anchors available than those that are actually linked to in tables of contents.
Breaking down 47.000000 degrees into degrees, minutes, and seconds, google comes up with the bizarre "59 minute and 60 seconds of a degree". Floating-point round-off somewhere? Probably. Update, March 24, 2008: The bug is half-fixed. Today, Google displays +47° 0' 0.00", -119° 59' 60.00" as the coordinates of this location.
From http://www.joinfear.com/main, and presented without further comment:
Charles Stross has released a downloadable, creative-commons version of Accelerando, "a fictional depiction of a possible Technological Singularity lying in our near future". I'm still in the first part, which I had also read in a copy of Asimov's Sci-Fi. It's good stuff. I'm glad I'll be able to read it from start to end, not in a random order whenever I travel and check out whatever copies of the magazine happen to be at the library the day I leave town.
