Sunday Sundries

Miscellaneous items I found of interest during the week.

Canada's Forgotten Heroes
Bart Armstrong, who I met at VGS on Saturday, "has been researching the Canadian heroes who earned the American Medal of Honor for almost two decades.  His site is dedicated, by way of Sunday blogs, to bring to the public's attention to some of this rich culture and heritage that has been forgotten, or worse yet, in many cases never known to most Canadians, and indeed to our friends to the south."

The Material Culture of Remembrance and Identity: South Africa, India, Canada & Australia's Imperial War Graves Commission Sites on the First World War's Western Front
Ph. D. Thesis (University of Oxford) -

A list of ten ways we are decadent and a (speculative) theory about why it might not matter

8 Things that Bing Does Better than Google
The bottom line ... in terms of conventional search engine results and accuracy, Bing and other search engines have a long way to go before they can deliver Google-level performance. This means Google does way better in terms of more search results, more relevant search results, and a better understanding of user intent.
