Bookmarks for July 13th through July 15th
This is an auto-posted collection of public links I’ve either posted to, or favourites from Twitter, my Instapaper bookmarks and my public links posted to Pinboard.in for July 13th from 22:12 to 10:22:
- Unity Technologies Blog » Blog Archive » This is big: Unity coming to Sony consoles this year – I don't understand why no-one's bought Unity yet, apart from, like Dropbox, its value is in being owned by no-one.

- Twitter / Cmdr_Hadfield: I’m intrigued by the pixellated … – I'm intrigued by the pixellated surreality of whatever we're doing in this dry lakebed.
- Law and Justice and George Zimmerman – Andrew Cohen – The Atlantic – What the verdict says, to the astonishment of tens of millions of us, is that you can go looking for trouble in Florida, with a gun and a great deal of racial bias, and you can find that trouble, and you can act upon that trouble in a way that leaves a young man dead, and none of it guarantees that you will be convicted of a crime. But this curious result says as much about Florida's judicial and legislative sensibilities as it does about Zimmerman's conduct that night. This verdict would not have occurred in every state. It might not even have occurred in any other state. But it occurred here, a tragic confluence that leaves a young man's untimely death unrequited under state law. Don't like it? Lobby to change Florida's laws.
