Four short links: 23 May 2011

  1. PC Emulator in Javascript -- days later and it's mindboggling.
  2. US Home Prices as Opera (Flowing Data) -- reminded me of Douglas Adams's "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" which has software that turns your company's performance numbers into music. The yearly accounts of most British companies emerged sounding like the Dead March from "Saul", but in Japan they went for it like a pack of rats. It produced lots of cheery company anthems that started well, but if you were going to criticise you'd probably say that they tended to get a bit loud and squeaky at the end.
  3. s3cmd Parallel -- command-line tool with parallel uploads to s3. (via Nelson Minar)
  4. Eight of China's Top Nine Government Officials are Scientists (Singularity Hub) -- the article's idiotic reduction to performance on standardised tests misses America's primary strength against China, namely creative and flexible workforce. China will get there, but it's not there yet.
