Now hear this.

If you haven’t already discovered Restricted Data, Alex Wellerstein’s steadily more remarkable blog on the history of (secrecy in) the nuclear age,* then you’re late to the party.

Sorry — nothing terribly clever to say at the moment. I’ll resist the temptation to highlight one or two items, as it would take me all evening to choose. Just go and read.

That is all.

* Mostly in America.

NB. The image above comes from one of Alex’s other websites.

    A well-deserved shout-out for a great guy doing great stuff. Fun to see how Nukemap has exploded, hopefully all the more so once the planned foreign language versions go online.

      Pun intended?

    Alex notes that over 2 million bombs have been “dropped” on “other” site, NukeMap, including over a million btwn 2/23 and 2/26. Crikey!
