  • Lowy Institute visiting fellow Hugh White made an appearance on episode 2 of the ABC documentary The Howard Years last night, discussing the 1999 Timor operation. Here's a paper Hugh wrote earlier this year with more detail on the strategic decision-making process.
  • Europeana is a huge new digital library of Europe's cultural and intellectual heritage. The website opened recently and crashed soon after, due to overwhelming demand.
  • Obama as kitsch: '...kitsch is the willed absence of doubt, it acts as a neatly closed emotional system, impervious to skepticism and hostile to introspection...'
  • Further indications that the Afghan surge will be bigger than previously thought.
  • Some cool footage, taken from a police car, of a meteor strike in Canada.
