Here are a few of the other noteworthy things we saw today on our never-ending journey through the wild, wild Web.


If A New Jersey Congressman Can Beat Watson Are We Out of Jeopardy?

Inside the Busy, Stressful World of Air Traffic Control

But for now, I want to get to a really simple part of the air traffic control world. It’s the part I always want you to think about first, whenever air traffic control comes up as a topic.

It’s the runways. It’s always the runways.
