  • The Taiwan Link looks like a very useful blog on security issues relating to China and Taiwan. Check out the latest post on China's missile defence program. (H/t Arms Control Wonk.)
  • The Australian Prime Ministers Centre is offering scholarships for research on our PMs.
  • Sarkozy drops his carbon tax idea.
  • Danwei has lots of links on the Google-China story. See also James Fallows' interview with Google's chief legal officer. And Evan Osnos reports on new American Chamber of Commerce findings about how American business feels about China.
  • US Vice-President Joe Biden often gets into trouble with the English language — the latest is his F-bomb to the President at the health care bill signing. But credit where due. This, on his return from Israel last week, is pretty funny:

…it’s great to be back to a place where a boom in housing construction is actually a good thing.

(Though on reflection, America's last housing boom really didn't turn out that well, so maybe this is another Biden clanger.)
