Tuesday's recommended links

I finally installed mouse gestures, and I was addicted within minutes. No -- seconds. Make it a point to download the Mozilla browser and improve your Web productivity tenfold.

Boxes and Arrows has posted part two of its three-part series comparing Web design with the design of retail stores. (See my previous entry.)

The New York Times (username: cyberpunk21, password: cyberpunk21) reports on Google News. The article concludes: "in general, Google's automated editors appeared to match the work of human competitors." That's a slap in the face of the journalism professor who taught me "editors can never be replaced by computers. That's why we get paid the big bucks." Then again, as some have pointed out, Google News still relies heavily on human editorial judgment -- that of the individual news sites it indexes.

Drop me a line if you have any tips on installing Linux. I'm taking the plunge soon.

That may be one of the reasons why it is less popular than Yandex, according to Nielson.
