How to destroy the Earth

More from my backlog of somewhat interesting links.

  • How to destroy the Earth: The Earth was built to last. It is a 4,550,000,000-year-old, 5,973,600,000,000,000,000,000-tonne ball of iron. It has taken more devastating asteroid hits in its lifetime than you've had hot dinners, and lo, it still orbits merrily. So my first piece of advice to you, dear would-be Earth-destroyer, is: do NOT think this will be easy.
  • How to move the Earth: Just in case destroying the Earth is temporarily beyond you.
  • Writing faster managed code: Excellent information from a CLR insider about the performance of managed code.  
  • How to be a programmer: A bit too macho in some areas for my taste, but some good nuggets as well.
  • Presentation judo: Some very insightful tips on good presenting.
  • More presentation judo: Don Box, one of the best technical presenters of our era, on what makes a good presentation.
  • The web without clicking: Interesting (via Chris Anderson).
