This week on the web

The days are getting shorter and there is a distinct nip in the air here at Opera HQ in Oslo... With the Norwegian winter now upon us, we decided it was time to make our offices more comfy and toasty...complete with a big pot of sausages on the stove. (Not to mention some essential interior decor as well - hi Tom!)
These cozy-making efforts were so intensive, so high-profile, that they attracted the attention of NRK, the Norwegian national broadcaster, who sent a reporter specially to our offices to get the low-down on just how we make such magic happen.
The answer, at least according to that bottle of ketchup, is the wondrous power of the Internet to generate strange loops of self-referencing sequences of events. We took a picture to prove the point. (Ah, but who took the picture of me taking the picture?)
Speaking of big news, that other Opera confirmed something we've suspected privately for a long time - namely, that neutrinos travel faster than light. Yes, folks, science says it's true, so you can call in those bets and quit staying up late worrying about it.
Whew! After so much Internet news, we could all do with a nap. .
Have a great weekend, everyone!
